Both setups clocked high: 1200/1700 vs 1180/590 MHz.

So, I want report back and thank authors/contributors. I've sucessfully flashed my 290 (PowerColor reference, unlockable, sob!) with Elpida Mem mod. It's under stress testing now.
I just found something strange I couldn't find be reported before: chips seem "changed" to Hynix now. Is it something I should worry about?
That's normal because the BIOS only have Hynix memory information in it which make GPU-Z or any other software to erroneously report the card have Hynix memory.

Well, thanks!
I admit, I can't dig more in this mod - my baby is getting all my attention, and above all my "gaming closet" is becoming her room, so... Soon or later, I'll cease most activities, including watercooling (btw... I though fullcovers are expensive for this card!).
For now, aver 10 Firestrikes and 15 minutes of Furmark, it's going flawlessly with stock cooler.

I haven't saved the numbers, but the +10% more is reasonable.

No, better mod your cards bios instead.

hi work on 290x tri-x?
post #990 of 1872
Just wanted to sign up to say cheers. I flashed my XFX Core with the NO MOD Stock Bios and little jumps here and there, great for a free little upgrade. My stable overclock took a drop for 30 mhz on the core and 25mhz on the VRAM in the process, but I still get higher numbers so it is all good.

My 3DMark Firestrike scores went from the 10,000 range to the 10,500 range and gaming benchmarks saw a nice little 3-6% bump in FPS.

I also saw earlier back some people saying they were getting black screens on boot after flashing, I had this issue as well, by jumping into Safe Mode and uninstalling (but not selecting to delete the driver), then rebooting into Windows this issue went away.
