thank mate Will try tomorrow too see how stable it
Which straps did you add timings to?
I believed i used that timing for 1251mhz-1500mhz. The GPU score for 1030/1251 is 200-400 lower compare to 1030/1250(Stock).
I ran the test a couple of times to confirm it.
is there any progress in getting fury x bios working on this? at the moment its unable to find any tables.
SO you added timings to 3 straps like this?
Strange at those RAM speeds you wouldn't be getting EDC (ECC errors), more info stated in this post by The Stilt.
Is valid for a 290?
R9295X2 only. and only with WATERCOOLING full block requirements.
I have successfully added BFR ram support to 2 different roms.
One was straight forwarded where VRAM_info was same size in each, so just copy and overwrite in another rom.
Second was where receiving rom had smaller table thus when larger table added other data / command tables after it shifted, this required a further mod which we will for now call the "directory of tables" :nerd:. This was accomplished by some brainstorming between me, DDSZ and Lard.
I also think this was why the rom which I created with a gpu core voltage offset did not work , I may grow the balls to try that rom again or keep an eye out for cheap card on ebay to experiment on.
To a degree I can verify if modding is successful by parsing modded rom in atomdis to verify all data / command tables are being picked up correctly :nerd: .
Due to the time taken to do mod and number of hex changes that need to be calculated and applied, guinea pigs will have to appreciate production of rom will not be that quick, if they want it done.
Here are some samples of two stages out of a few for mod of the second rom I did.
In above image I manually entered hex in excel to calculate shift, if anyone knows a better way of dumping hex to something that separates it then allows manipulation please let me know.
I shall be creating a "How to.." in the OCN thread regarding changes to "directory of tables" for instances of modding smaller / bigger tables once I have done more of these roms.
Why does this BIOS file require a full cover block? Is it just because of the boosted clocks (1150 / 1600) or did you have to add a bunch of stock voltage to it to achieve those clocks? I was just curious, because if it is just the 3D clocks that make it too hot for the stock AIO cooler than someone with stock cooling could still take advantage of this awesome BIOS by just lowering the 3D clocks back to their default of 1030 / 1300.
On that note, have you made anymore progress with this R9 295x2 BIOS since the time you posted this?
3D clocks and Voltage are quite high 1.350+ ect and the VRMS need better cooling than that crap AIO cooler`s air cooler can provide.
though im sure the bios would be fine on AIO cards but im not willing to take the risk in saying it will work fine when it might not work fine, + i don't want to be responsible for breaking there expensive cards.
yes i am working on even lower voltage and 2d clocks
also going to be tweaking memory timings, + modifying other clocks for other types of formats, so there is still some work to go with this bios
I also got the makers of AIDA64 to add VOLTAGE/CURRENT/POWER suppport to there program so people that use it to monitor stuff can now do so from the previous update support has been added
-- for instance i have this on my desktop works quite well and reports everything
That is awesome! I recently purchased an R9 295X2 for an mITX machine that I built and would love to use a version of your BIOS that you are making that is more tuned for the "stock" cooler on the R9 295X2.
hi mate, reported. The bios have a problem. Flashing fine, however when I restarted, stuck in bootscreen with : "thread stuck in device driver". Revert back to the bios you gave me before work fine.
Weird should not have a issue with it, did you DDU and select new graphics card then flash then boot back up. ?
weird cause it should not have a issue on bootup as the bios is set to bootup @ default bios values until you install the graphics drivers then my low voltages kick in. (as startup and windows boot are using the reference values in the bios until drivers are installed) as no other changes take place within the bios until drivers are installed.
Windows 10,driver 15.7.1, 2 x 295x2 with koolabce waterblock.triple 4k eyefinity. Temp is totally fine. Really weird issued. flash back to the previous bios you gave me work flawless but with new bios, it showed the issued above:3eyes:
Can you modify your bios as follow:
2D clock 100-100 ( i think needed for dp port drive the 4k display)
3D mode: 1050-1600 with voltage 1.28
What's the best bois mod for XFX R9 295X2 i just got 1. I will do the water block bois mod when i get my block in 1 or 2 weeks. For now i just need 1 with stock cooler for now.
295x2 bios for stock aio cooler much appreciated! How would you decrease the temperature of the card akin to the full water block, but only using fans? I have 3 noctua NF-A14 casefans and 2 noctua NF-F12 iPPC2000 and 4 noctua NF-F12 iPPC3000 incoming, but if its not possible to cool the card sufficiently in the corsair 750d case for your modded bios, I might return the fans.
well, I tried to flash Plug2k 295x2 bios using atiflash -f -p 0 uefi__m.rom and atiflash -f -p 1 uefi__s.rom and got black screen and bsods during boot BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO or something. Reverted to original files and everything OK..
I have a XFX 290 (NON-X) with ELPIDA RAMS (its working on 1500 MHz oc AB) can I flash to 390x bios 4gb modded? and its gonna work?
or what if I fail the flash? can I flash back to stock bios without another vga? I have only this vga card have.

Ok would it be worth it to bios flash my gpu to the one from the r9 390 pcs+ now that the drivers are the same?
