    Hi All,

    Pls shed some light. I have Sapphire R9 290 (red color with single fan) stock. I have this trouble with my graphic card, some time, the monitor just shuts down. SO i thought to flash new bios.

    Can anyone link me which 390x bios should i flash? Is there any improvements in gaming?. Any disadvantages?

    Hi mate.
    Does increasing of "Power Limit" by MSI AB increase TDC as well or PL value only ?

    I'm trying to remove blackscreening which appears once I put more than >200mV and >0% power limit into my Asus Ares 3 (2x 290x).
    Ares 3 bios values are:
    TDP/ PL / TDC= 208 / 208 / 200

    .....which is the same as for Default 290X.
    Sapphire 290X Tri-X OC for example, has TDP/ PL / TDC= 216 / 216 / 208.

    I'm wonderring what is the max safe TDP/PL/TDC considering the fact that Ares 3 uses 2x 290x and has only 1 PCIe slot power + 3x8pin power, 16 phases ? :)

    (Temps are fine, @load, stock 40C-42C, with +200mV its 55-60C max, the same for vrms)

    Hi mate.
    I have asus ares 3, which is 2x290X2 and kind of similar to 295X2 you have.
    I've been talking to gupsterg and he is helping me out with my card and bios settings and stuff around it.
    He advised me to talk to you as you played around your bios and our cards are very similar.
    Can you please tell me more ?
    I'm trying to get my card stable at high clocks as my water cooling is top notch and my core and vrm temps are low.
    I would like to see your bios values(screenshot from hawaiireader), what voltages you are using in bios, what clocks you could get etc....

    I'm facing a problem with displayport and 144Hz + high clocks = blackscreening.
    I believe it's a known problem and only happens if I use displayport, and more than 60Hz + >1200MHz on core1. Not sure if you faced this problem.

    I'm also experiencing downclocking.
    I tried to play with limits in hawaiireader but it's not rly helping.
    If I use stock clocks and +50% power limit, then its all good, clocks stay at 1030.
    If I use for example 1220MHz, clocks are not at 1200 but fluctuating at 1219, 1218 etc..

    Like I said I would like to get the max out of this ares 3.
    Thanks:)

    Upload your bios`s and i will take a look also if you are running @144hz ect and above, downclocking will be of no use to you as you will get black screening if downclocking under stock voltages or clocks as i use 60hz/75hz i have no issues with this though i can take a look at your bios.

    THanks.
    Blackscreenign only appears when I use more than 60Hz and clocking gpu1 mor ethan 1200mhz. clocking gpu2 doesnt affect it. Mem clock doesnt affect it as well.
    This is the bios I use. It's stock bios but 25mV offset removed by gupsterg.
    www@overclock@net/attachments/35379

    put "." instead of "@" cuz I can't post links.

    Anyway, what's the max voltage u have used or using now ? As a bios value ?

    Thanks for the info Fat4l i will take a look at your card at the weekend as pretty busy at the moment with night**** work ect ect due to Christmas build up and will let you know my findings :)

    Will this work to mod my windforce 290x w/ elpida?

    I don't care if the 390x bios works on it, I just want to increase my idle ram speed. I notice a streak across my screen at desktop when that jumps from 150 to 1500 - not always but often enough to notice.

    Note I haven't been able to follow this thread much (full time at university right now) - so please excuse my ignorance here. If there is a summary or crash-course guide buried in here somewhere I'm not likely to find it.

    Sorry man that i have not gotten around to modding your bios this weekend, got into a bit of a busy period as of late with work related issues
    though i will get around to it, i also have other people i need to chat to as i need to upload my bios when i get time also from that its possible someone might be able to help you until i can get around to helping you, it will probably be next weekend when i get some free time or sometime this week, though if you havent had help by then, i will make it a priority for you.

    No problem man :)
    I re-read the thread and mostly your posts.
    Have you found out why 1200/1600 gives u less score than 1150/1600 ?
    Maybe you should try with 1500 mems to eliminate them.
    Maybe the problem is power limits.
    I have a problem with them as well, whilstl my card has much better VRM, 16 phases for 2 gpus so its 5+1+1 per gpu and them being 60A each instead of 40A(thanks to gupsterg!)
    When I run stock clocks, 1030MHz, there's no downclocking.
    When I do 1200MHz, the clocks are not stable. They are ~1118, 1119 etc...
    Basically they fluctuate much more than they should. I tried to play around power limits but no success.
    Maybe I have to reinstall the drivers when doing "limit" mods ?

    Anyway, what DPM7 voltage did u use for 1200 clocks ?:banana:

    I think on the OCN thread you were going to test what is the highest stable GPU clock you get ie no fluctuation.

    I'd find that point.

    What I did when creating Enterprise's rom for ref pcb/cooler 295x2 to do 1100MHz GPU 1550 RAM stable.

    Step 1

    Set ROM to have appropriate DPM 7 voltage for the default GPU clock of 1100MHz. We checked his default ROM VID with default clocks and he stated he used +70mv in MSI AB to get that OC artifact free. I got him to run 3dmark FS with his OC settings and state MAX VDDC logged. It took me 2 attempts to get the right VDDC due to droop from VID set.

    Step 2

    He stated ROM was dropping clocks unless he added +50% PL in MSI AB. To be safe I initially only increased TDP / MPDL by 10% over stock, then 25% and finally 50%. His card was still dropping clocks. I then added 10% to TDC then (137A to 150A) with still 50% to TDP / MPDL and all was stable.

    Only other thing worth stating is before I went for any adjustment of TDP / MPDL / TDC in rom I adjusted MAX ASIC temp from 75c to 85c.

    yeah I wanted to do this test today :)
    I will do it later, for now I'm doing 1000/1018/1030 test we talked about :)
    Back to OCN for results :p

    ok so I finished my ROM for 1100MHz/1500MHz.
    GPU1- 1212v set in the dpm7
    GPU2- 1250v set in the dpm7

    Real max voltage is:
    GPU1- 1.195v
    GPU2- 1.234v

    Would be nice to see how much volts ur 290X/390X needs for 1100/1500MHz clocks :)

    my card with 1050/1350 runs ok and 1100/1500 +25mv trough msi ab runs ok.

    if i try to edit the bios trough hawaii bios editor and add 25mv on the powerplay table (dpm0 gpu and mem freq table) and first 3 values on voltage table and add 25mv on limit tables on every dpm0 values... i have black screen on boot. Every value edited has 900mv default

    i think because on 2d sometimes my gpu remain to 300mhz but ram goes to 1500mhz (3d state) with voltage that remains to 0.938v (gpuz... and it's quite strange because default values on dpm0 are set to 0.9v).

    i think that i must add 25mv not only to dpm0 but to some other state.

    someone can help me?

    i think that i needs only to identify the windows dpm state (where frequencies are 300/1500 with vgpu 0.938) and set the ram to 1350 instead to 1500 only in that state, adding 25mv to dpm0 only..

    founded a solution... i have edited to 1500mhz only the dpm7 for the ram, adding 0.25mv to dpm0, so under windows i have spike to 1350mhz and under full 3d i have the ram to 1500mhz with 25mv offset... :)
