But the 290X bios has the same timings as the 290 bios, correct?

My card has Hynix memory, I get the best performance at 1440MHz.
I can max it out in MSI afterburner although the performance will go down(due to error correction, I assume)

Ive been contemplating flashing one of my Lightnings since this posted. I dont think I have the guts to chance it

Here you go, the 390 bios completely untouched.

I've also made some 390 bioses, if someone want to try them out. All of them have the stilt timings and 1250 in dpm 7 state. The 390 table one uses the 390 bios stock voltage table and has higher vddci and idle voltage and the 290 table one uses stock 290 voltage table, which means lower vddci and lower idle voltage. Hopefully i've got the clockspeeds right, since hawaii can't read them properly in this bios. (they are in wrong order) The zip contains all four of the bioses, 2 for elpida and 2 for hynix.

I think you could try Insan1ty's elpida bios, should work fine. The new edition seems to not be too different from the old one.

Thanks mate. I'll look into it.

So where do I find the famous Insan1ty BIOS? I looked on the OP, but the link below the pic seems like something I don't want to install on my PC. Looks suspicious.

He meant, he modded the 390 BIOS that natively, uses Hynix Timings from a different chip family. Different capacity as well.

For the BIOS to work on the 200 series card, the timings should adopt the 200 series'. The Stilt modded those timings to be tighter for a bit more performance.

DPM 7 Voltage is also altered according to his card's DPM 7 VID. That's the Voltage the card needs at full 3D clock.

You can easily mod it according to your card's VID using Hawaii Bios Reader.
