any updates on that?
I used Gelid Solutions GP Extreme Thermal Pad 80 x 40 x 2*1.0 mm 12.0 W/mK
The GPU fan is Alienware M17x R4 17.3" GPU Cooling Fan THPDJ DC28000BGF0
My U3 mod:
My PWM mod:
lot of work but the results are amazing
Heres playing world of tanks, ultra settings@120Hz display.
CPU/GPU @ 45c
I remember stock amd R9m290x was cooking at 90c years ago and theres much more graphics in the game now.
the bottom hwinfo graph is that of gpu power. As you can see its 80w flat mostly with few spikes to 100.
I'd call that a 80w card?
Is it throttling?
Baqir, I seem to remember we got the very same card.
I was just wandering what kind of behaviour is with vbios from your post #7
The green line in your screenshot shows the power throttling and i can see the voltage is locked at 1v which is not enough i guess.
So this vbios you posted eliminates that?
Exactly i had the same issue so i got it fixed by modifying the backup of original bios.
I still working on it. For a few days every vbios working great without throttling, but today after I switched back to svl and try new nvidia drivers, throttling is back.
alright keep me posted.
