I am new to the forums.
Ofcourse i do have the exact same problems, i do own a Gigabyte R9 290
It was crashing a lot even with browsing the net etc.
So i did a few changes and it looked stable untill right now for no reason.
Changes i did.
1. Only install driver from AMD !! No CCC in short nothing you need all the streaming and whatever crap is a real pain... btw i use RadeonPro for creating profiles for games, etc.
2. Install MSI Afterburner.
and go to settings tab, and make sure you select
=> Disable ULPS => Force constant voltage => also top box (mine is in dutch so dunno exact english translation)
Next step got to FAN tab
and create your own fan settings and.... try to get the GPU temp around 72/75 degrees Celsius.
I dont have a screenshot yet if someone wants it i will upload it.
This was stable for me till right now and performing realy wel.
Gipsyganger mentioned this on the forum
*i bought the MSI R9 290 and have the same problem BSOD, the reason is the hyper trasnport timeout, the only way i could make the system stable was to make the pcie clock to 140 in the bios, after that it was stable, my motherboard is a asus m5a78l le, i think this may happen because of our pcie 2.0 ports are not able to handle the load of the r9 290, what are your opinions on changing pcie clock on the bios*
So i am trying that right now (i also have ASUS MB) and it seems stable till this moment.
Been running benchmarks for some time now and no probs.
My question to Gipsydanger... why 140 on the PICe clock.... ? my bios will go up to 150.
But till now it indeed is stable.
I hope you are still around because 1 way or the other this should get fixed for such an expensive (and good) card these problems are insane
