    Sammarbela will probably mock me, but you have a rare setup. I would report that to AMD if I were you.

    I don't know why you said that, he has a rare monitor setup.

    If it's about report, you are right.

    You know what i think about reports to AMD: filling complaints on toilet paper use to be more effective...or public Petitions on change.org.

    :D

    186 fps constant through 260 seconds, no clock fluctuations, no fps drops...

    used your exact settings including 2000 ram.

    i have a 290 pro vapor-x oc stock (1030/1400)...

    I cannot confirm this, in 16.3 ULPS sleep works pretty much the same as it did before for me and my second card goes to sleep without any specific issues. Though I have noticed that sometimes the second card does not go to sleep right after boot but as soon as I open a game/application that would normally wake the second card, and then close it, it goes to sleep. Needless to say, there are a million different apps that wake the second gpu for no reason, like Skype, windows photo viewer or any media player. Playing any type of video in Firefox also wakes the second card and it will not go back to sleep unless you close the whole browser.
    Considering the fact that your core clock is at 2D clock, while your memory clock is at 3D clock, are you OCing your monitors by any chance?

    Disabling CF in a game profile will only prevent negative scaling by not using the second gpu for acceleration, that is it; it will not prevent CF-related bugs unless you disable CF globally. This is certainly a bug in the driver but it is not new to Crimson, it has always been like this, or at least since I have been running CF. Catalyst 15.11 and 15.12 exhibited the same behavior.

    Same issue here, apparently that option was never meant for the 7xxx/2xx cards. I have seen jumpy clocks on my cards a few times but I am not sure if it actually affected FPS.

    I do not know if you got to it guys, but he never had need to OC memory. He needed to buy 2nd 8GB stick to enable dual channel.

    I THINK this driver finally made my completely random black screen freezes (as in, the entire OS basically crashes) go away.

    Yup. Dual channel would double his transfer rates. I hate it that my z68 crap does not work with dual channel.... Just ffs.

    No clue. But my old z77 had it's sata controller die. So I had to buy fast p8z68-v lx motherboard used. No new z77 or 68 are sold here. So this one simply does not do dual channel it hangs forever and goes no where.

    I don't want to buy a new one again so I will simply use what I have.

    Yup it is. But don't wanna go through the hassle again of reactivating windows and all of the other crap. If I could get z77 board easily np but as the things stand meh. I actually lose quite a bit of performance too on single and dual card setup because of this board....

    If it was only the sata controller affected you could had just try to find a pci-e sata controller.

    Those are really costly at least here. One with 4 slots sets me back some 100€. I would need two. At least the motherboard was 70€ :D

    And this has abslolutely nothing to do with Radeon Catalyst drivers......should not be here.

    Yes, I have a OC 144 hz Asus monitor and when I turn my refresh rate down to 120 hz the clock goes down to 150 hz as it should. When 144hz the clock stays at 1500 hz /R9 390 strix and temp stays at 65 degrees at idle.

    So I have a 144 hz monitor for no use until AMD is fixing the issue. Nvidia drivers are having the same issue with Nvidia Strix.

    I have contacted ASUS and they told me to contact AMD. It's not the Strix card. It's a driver issue.

    Board should work just fine with your CPU/memory. In the end It is CPU which holds memory controller and MB just provides traces and pumps voltage.

    Check if there is new BIOS, reset to defaults, try XMP if that does not work, set configuration manually.
    Try different slot combinations. Are you on 4x4GB? If you are on 2x 8GB, sometimes manufacturer writes channels in manual wrongly or in way that one reads it wrong.

    I had my share of BIOS forgetting memory configurations in between restarts, but remembered everything else (XMP was culprit for some reason).
    Now I run 9-9-8-22 1T on 4x4GB 1600MHz memories.

    Fox, did you try overclocking the ram little bit? I jumped from 1600Mhz CL9 to 2133Mhz CL10 a week ago, my 2500k seems run much faster with such a high memory bandwidth.

    In those CPU bottleneck scenes it does help alot.

    I have 4x low profile Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz 1T 9,9,9,24 128T.
    Following are today's FS Ultra tests with:
    1600MHz 1T 9,9,8,22 124T vs. 1600MHz 1T 9,9,8,22 122T.
    http://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/7938998/fs/7939549#

    I can't get them to work at 1866MHz. Even with all required timings proportionally increased.
    (I went through all tRFC, tWR, tWTR, tRRD, ... All to be exactly 1866/1600 ratio higher as needed. My CPU simply does not like 1866 MHz.)

    Edit: And here is regular Firestrike...
    http://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/7145004/fs/7697288/fs/7939733#
    It is: 1600MHz 1T 9,9,9,24 128T (default) vs. 1600MHz 1T 9,9,8,22 124T vs. 1600MHz 1T 9,9,8,22 122T.

    Graphics card really starts to benefit from faster memory only in very heavy scenario.
