Modded R9 390X BIOS for R9 290/290X (Updated 02/16/2016) - Page 79

post #781 of 1859
I was able to do a couple tests last night with different timmings for ram (everything else stock) at my stock UEFI, and can show you a couple results:



Stock clock and ram timmings vs stock clocks and 1250 strap timmings



1110 core 1500 mem stock timmings vs 1110 core 1375 mem with 1250 timmings (just now realized I forgot to set mem to 1500 mad.gif)

and this link is 1150 core 1450 mem with 1250 timmings: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/6571531

I like to use 1110 fos OC testing because I don't need adding mvolts, so I use it as my normal OC (low temps and good performance on air)

Better timmings improved scores, so next I'm going to mod timmings in the 390 bios @gupsterg made for me to see what happens.

If someone want to try the different UEFI they are as follows:

290_1StrapTimmingsUp.zip 100k .zip file Stock UEFI with timmings of the lower strap i.e. 1500 strap timmings for 1625 strap

290_2StrapsTimmingsUp.zip 100k .zip file Stock UEFI with timmings of 2 lower straps i.e. 1375 strap timmings for 1625 strap

290_1250strapTimmingsupto1625strap.zip 100k .zip file Stock UEFI with 1250 strap timmings up to the 1625 strap

1250 strap has the stock timmings for all the UEFI, timmings changed for both mem types the UEFI uses (Samsung and not sure about the other)

Regards.

Well from my testing, frequency > timings.
I think you should focus on finding max_mem_frequency and then try to find suitable timings for it.
My mems can do 1750MHz easy with no timing mods.
I tried 1250strap and it was stable till 1520Mhz or so...
Then I moved up, tried 1375 timings, they were stable up to ~1640Mhz(1660 got me blackscreens after 20 mins)
Then I tried 1500 timings and they are stable at 1720Mhz. I use them at 1700MHz and it is giving me the best results. wink.gif

I don't know if this is happening with anyone else (my particular 290X (XFX Reference/Elpida RAM) is poop anyways) but updating to the new Radeon Software Crimson drivers completely broke the V1.7 No-Mod BIOS for me. Had a decent 1130/1530 OC going with the last Beta of Catalyst this morning, but after updating to Crimson the card black screens immediately on boot. Uninstalled MSIAB completely but the issue persists with stock clocks. Had to flip over to the ASUS BIOS in order to get a working boot.

Certainly not complaining, just wanted to bring attention to the fact that there might be something in the new Crimson drivers that has a negative impact on this BIOS. I pretty surprised, never once had a black screen boot on this BIOS before updating the drivers, got a much higher memory clock versus the ASUS BIOS as well.

This may be the case. I have HIS 290X ref board with Elpida. Flashed 1.7 mod and then no mod for my memory yesterday with the same result. Driver crashing during 3Dmark for no apparent reason. While in furmark everything seemed to be fine. Since it was happening after Crimson release - this is the only driver that I tried and now considering this post I might try to use older driver.
For performance comparison: furmark ran at 130 FPS with old driver on stock bios, 133 FPS with Crimson on stock bios and whopping 144 FPS with Crimson and 1.7 BIOS. No marks 'cos mark crashed as I said

I flashed the 390x NO MOD Hynix bios to my R9 290X and i felt some performance increases in benchmarks and games. However when I switched to an UHD screen via displayport and New AMD Crimson installation the problems started.
After installing drivers everything locks up and I need to do an hard reset to the pc do someting.

When I switch to Original bios everything works fine, except that I had to lower my clocks from .

+100mv
1150
1625

to

+38mv
1100
1400

Using the card with Corsair HG10 A1 + NZXT X61 with max temps of 40 degrees.. very dissapointed.

Otherwise everything start flckering when 3d activated. Is there a fixed bios for people who uses an 4K screen ?

I just flashed the V1.7 memmod bios on my XFX R9 290 DD. I'm getting about 100 extra points on the Valley benchmark (ultra HD) with the same OC I was running on the stock bios (1100/1350). However I'm noticing that, at least in the Valley benchmark, I need a lot more voltage for everything to be stable. With the stock BIOS I needed +19mV for the 1100/1350 OC, with the memmod BIOS I need +31mV. Not a huge deal as I am watercooling, but I do wonder how and why this is happening. I haven't tried any other benchmarks yet and I am using the crimson drivers, so this may be just a software issue.

Is everything working fine with the new CRIMSON drivers of AMD ?
Mine stuck at Windows loading everytime frown.gif
