Modded R9 390X BIOS for R9 290/290X (Updated 02/16/2016) - Page 51

post #501 of 1872
Do I need anything special to flash a 390X bios on my relatively new (locked) XFX R9 290 DD?

Thanks for info

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.

You know what, I just discovered that you can actually control 0-100% with Afterburner!! You have to use the custom fan curve, you can set it however you like. I have full control, just stopped my fans and adjusted them below 25% no problem biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

It's very strange you can't adjust them manually via the slider, that has 25% minimum, but just set them to Auto and create your own fan curve and off you go! Super excited, I can make this totally silent now I bet.

Should i have more success to reflash XFX r9 290x 8GB version to 390x BiOS ?
Will it reduce heat and perform better than regular 290x ?

Decided to give this bios another go, now when i have solved psu problems. I decided to stick max 100mv and see where i could get to. I got to1180/1570 (memory could probably go higher) and at this frequency it even outperforms my 1240/1650 clock on normal 290 bios.

Hit 14,7k on a stock sapphire 290 bios at 1270/1780 http://www.3dmark.com/fs/5883857. 300 points from the 390 bios at 1245/1750, it would be fun to hit the same on the 390 bios. I hope there's still room for improvment, but until then i think i will stick to 290 bios.

That's impressive memory clocks.

I want to hit 1800 mhz biggrin.gif. I can run with 1800 and pass the first test and can run a bit of the second test until it blackscreens, maybe with a little more voltage?. Fun thing at 1780 the bandwidth goes up to 455,7 gb/s, pretty close to fury's 512 gb/s...
