Modded R9 390X BIOS for R9 290/290X (Updated 02/16/2016) - Page 49

post #481 of 1859
anyone figure out when flashing a 290x lightning with the lightning bios why voltage cant be added
post #482 of 1859
Is it hard to edit the fan % scale? I need to get mine to have a range from 0-100% instead of default start at 25%

If someone can do it easily, I am using the 390X mem mod bios (working great) the cards are now watercooled, but I'm using the PWM signal to control radiator fans, they can be quieter than this wink.gif

If it's not to hard to adjust myself then that would be cool, I may ultimately want them to start at 10% for long term, but ability to turn fans completely off would be nice for testing for a while at least.

I would also do the above after flashing a new rom, if a new rom has a varying gpu core voltage offset programmed in it or it has none and one out of voltage control chip is used then MSI AB can show anomalies.

Re-installed AB and got voltage monitoring active. Runs at 1219mV when idle which actually drops when under stress a bit to around 1180mV when GPU load is ~90-100%.

VDDC of 1219mV @ idle is way to high, is it the same in GPU-Z?

Fan editing is easy enough, setting 0% as minimum doesn't work as either rom or driver has a restriction on minimum fan speed as 20%.

There are 390 / X which do stop fans on low loads, perhaps it is due to driver? I've asked in a few threads where people flash 390 / X roms to 290/ X if they notice their fans stop at low loads and no one gives any info.

My Vapor-X 290X will stop 2 outer fans on low load but this is a hardware feature AFAIK.

Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to drop in quick and let you all know that I have done a slight overhaul to the OP and it now includes a lot more relevant / updated information. Please head on over and have a quick read before you continue posting! It will most likely answer a lot of your questions. If not then... Post away!

Thanks!

Did someone already got a bios for Sapphire 290 Tri-X new edition working?, or would it be better to get a 390 Nitro and mod from that?

I've tested the bioses at the OP pack (290 Tri-X new edition, Samsung ram), and the only one that lets me boot into windows is the 290_SAMSUNG_MOD_V1.7 but wont let me install drivers, either got black screen or install ends and after reboot it tells me "no amd gpu detected" or "driver not installed" so I think for this custom pcb at least they are not working.

If someone have a different experience it would be nice to read about that.

Regards.

Yes, it's the same in GPU-Z. I set it back to stock and it's running at 984mV idle.

Seeing as I'm not altering the Power Limit at all I don't get why the voltage is spiking so high.

Ah I see, 20% may be an alright minimum. Hmm, I'll have to think on it, to see if it is even worth reflashing with only a 5% drop. If it's Driver limited and not ROM limited, couldn't I gain full control with MSI Afterburner? That overrides the GPU drivers doesn't it?

Thanks for info

I have 390X Tri X Nitro rom, I can change device id to 390 or 290 and you could try it if you wanted? the roms in post 1 are XFX 390X with device id edits.

Hmm strange, for example if you set say +25mv in MSI AB @ idle you should see about 0.99x IMO not 1.2xx , regardless of power limit settings.

No worries on info, try it and see.

For me when testing via MSI AB on Sapphire Tri X 290 , Vapor-X 290X and Asus DCUII 290X fans would not go below 20%, stock factory roms on each card.

Wish I'd kept the Sapphire Tri X 290 as it was ref PCB for more tests like 390 roms but sadly sold it to get the Vapor-X 290X.

That would be awesome!!!, I volunteer to test it and post if actually works. tongue.gif
