What exactly does the bios check do?I have a slightly moded bios on my 290 and the driver works but I can't record anything and assumed its just a bug in the current driver.

The bios check is only for polaris gpus (RX 480/470/460), there is no problem with modded bion + new driver on other cards

@Associated I'm running XFX DD 4GB 460. Which works fine on the Sapphire Nitro BIOS, just loud fan on startup. I was able to successfully unlock my XFX 4GB card using the Sapphire 460 BIOS Unlock. It allowed an additional 8,000,000,000 Texels per second from before. Not bad. It runs Metro @ Normal @ 3840x2160 now around 35fps. Not bad for 48 watts. It would be nice if the card was not 65288 limited from PolarisBiosEditor because it runs really good and stable at 1350Mhz with 1225mv. Right now just running it at 1250Mhz on 65288 at 1150mv.

Download the modified kernel driver here: http://bit.ly/2h0NpwR
Download the Pixel Clock Patcher here: https://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-AMD-ATI-Pixel-Clock-Patcher (needed for the windows driver signature workaround)

1) Navigate to the amd driver extraction directory, usually "C:\AMD" then go into" Win10-64Bit-Radeon-Software-Crimson-ReLive-16.12.1-Dec7\Packages\Drivers\Display\WT6A_INF\B309333"
2) Extract the modified kernel driver in the "\B309333" directory overwriting the file
3) Uninstall current amd drivers normally and DO NOT REBOOT when asked
4) Reboot with advanced options like so:
5) Press and hold the Shift key on your keyboard and click the Restart button.
6) Choose Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings and click the Restart button.
7) When your computer restarts you’ll see a list of options, press F7 on your keyboard to select Disable driver signature enforcement.
This is needed only ONE TIME to successfully install the modified kernel, in the next reboot the driver signature enforcement will return to normal.
8) Install the driver normally with setup.exe in C:\AMD\Win10-64Bit-Radeon-Software-Crimson-ReLive-16.12.1-Dec7
DO NOT REBOOT WHEN ASKED
9) When the installation is finished run the atikmdag-patcher.exe (this will take care of driver signature for windows so we no loger need to disabled the enforcement with F7)
10) Press yes to patch the file
11) When finishes reboot the pc and enjoy your modified bios

So are you guys modifying the amd driver kernel so it will allow the voltage to stick? I find it unusual that writing the voltage to bios is apparently not actually doing it or is it the software/ kernel causing this issue?

You know like writing 1325Mhz and 1175mv... it freezes on startup because voltage sticks to 1150mv... Until trixx (Reset) and then it runs at 1175mv.

Thanks

No, the Relive is doing bios checksum validation so if you modify a stock bios in anyway it will fail to load the driver after you re flash it. I think the main thing everyone is doing is just changing the Max Power Limit in the bios. Most of the bios are capped at 110 or 115 watts but you can push it an extra 50% (165w to 172w) via software but you still are going to get capped as seen below...which is using auto voltages in wattman. For the most part the Max Power Limit value and Ohms Law are the limiting factors until you do the mod or use a older Crimson driver.

I got one Reference XFX RX 480 and had to return for the Stock Bios frown.gif If i flash the Modded bios by me, the drivers will not work frown.gif Relive it's nice, but this thing about check bios bahhhhh...

If someone got a Trick to apply Modded Bios please share biggrin.gif

Check a few pages back, somebody posted a solution with a modified kernel for the drivers. Basically, replace that file, reboot PC in disable sig check mode, install driver, patch driver, reboot.

I'm on the latest relive drivers with my custom bios.
