I am using some VMs too, dont know if that changes it a bit. My 2P experience has been a bit of cluster fudge ... bad board, bad memory stick...then got it working, 1 cpu died, then one of my R9 280X fried itself. I got it used, which is a bad thing. XFX warranty seems to only cover the original owner for 2 years, and the card is almost 3 years old, I had it just 7 months. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif Not the best warranty in the biz. Might replace it with an ASUS, they've been good to me warranty-wise over the years. Been dealing with them a lot recently because I picked up 2 Z9PE-D8s. Got the second to test the hardware of the first when I got it DOA from an ebayer in China (mistake #1 probably). Cost too much to ship back and the seller asked to get it checked out at a local shop, swearing the board was perfect. Socket 2 didnt work. Popped it the second board I got from the States, fired right up. Still waiting for PNY to send me back my RMA. Luckily I bought 9 sticks, which also was a cluster as well..Amazon couldn't meet the demand or something. $25 for 8GB DDR3-1866? Great price. Limit of 5 per customer, but they still couldn't sell me 3 after I bought 5 from Newegg. I had to buy 2 dual channel sets from NewEgg instead. I don't think they'd let me put a second order in. Sorry, I went off on a tangent.

Sorting some stuff out in life, so I've been low key the past few months. Do you think its better to get another 280X, or just go with 390(X)? Or I am thinking swapping it for my idle 7970s from another rig I dont really want to mess with because it has some bitcoin and financal info on it until I get around to backing it up. I don't really have a budget for hardware right now...just put 3K into my car after the head gaskets leaked badly and found some other issues as well. Oi vey.

I've seen people complain about ASUS RMAs. I've avoided ASUS on my GPU purchases the past few years due to that. I'd rather pay a little more for an EVGA with support everyone raves about.

I just got my 280x yesterday. Not sure what I need to do to get it working with the Intel S2600CP2J board. I enabled the 2nd GPU option and that allows it to post but then it just pauses where it displays the Intel splash screen and Press Del, F2, F6 options but then the USB keyboard doesn't work. unplug the PCI-E extender and it boots. I later put the card into another machine. Ubuntu is PO'd now cause it had an GTX 570 in it before so it loops right back to the login screen. That may just be quicker to format C: but it already has Boinc setup and and BOINCStats connected to it.

My only dealings with EVGA were my GTX 260/216s that died after 5-10 hours use. Known issue with them. RMAs work to this day. With ASUS, I've had a used 4870 go bad, they replaced with a 5770. I bought a not working 6870 off ebay, they replaced it with working one (1st try! the 4870 it took 2 tries). Bought a used 290X off ebay, black screen...sent it to them, eventually got a 390 for it when they couldnt find a replacement. They offered me a 380X at first, I was like no, I want a 290X. Thats a step back in performance. Haven't had an dealings with thier mobo support other than the Z9. All my other boards, new or used, have been rock solid over the years. Course, the Z9 was out of warranty so I paid to get it replaced, so that may change things. Asrock did the same thing for my X79 Extreme 6 with bad sound. $50 for a new/refirb is a lot cheaper than anything you'd find on the market right now.

Edit: I've had 560 Tis, 570s, 770s, 780 TIs and 980 Tis from EVGA with no issues. Guess that is a good thing?

Edit2: I dont know anthing about your board. It sounds like maybe a problem with the UEFI BIOS on the card working with the BIOS of the mobo...if I had to guess. So far every Card I tried in the Z9 has work. although it was just a 560 TI, a 780 TI and the R9 280X.

I enabled the 4g options I saw on it as I saw a comment elsewhere that it allowed them to use the blue open ended slot. No change with that. I'll have to update the BIOS as I didn't do that when I got it.

Generally I like numa =on. It lets the OS decide what to do with threads and where to allocate memory. Some situations it is better off, but all my servers have it on and I have never seen any real degradation.

Have you tried the card directly in the board? What extenders are you using?

The full length slot is blocked by the memory so I tried a non-powered PCI 16x extension. I tried it in a desktop PC awhile back so it works. I had also tried it in the open ended 8x slot. I think before I enabled the options in the BIOS.

I updated the BIOS and it now boots.

I tried installing the AMD Pro drivers like it shows in this link. Open the terminal, Yes and Yes, runs then it closes. Thats was too easy that it couldn't be right. I dont think it installed correctly as anything I open I can't see that window. I see the couple of icons on the desktop but only like part of the start menu w/o its borders. None of the shut down buttons.
https://mintguide.org/system/629-install-amd-radeon-gpu-pro-driver-with-vulkan-support.html

Is this the correct driver to install?
post #69 of 199
280x is not on the approved list for the new driver. That could be your issue.
post #70 of 199
Well shenanigans. I'll uninstall and it try another tomorrow.
