Success! Flashed XFX R9 290 to Asus R9 290X
 
I hope no one minds, I wanted to post this but I'm getting tired as I posted this on another forum for now.

Just the link to read up on it.

Interesting. I am surprised AMD have allowed something like this to happen again, though it probably generates publicity and sales (so I guess I shouldn't be surprised). Congrats! They are a great card if you have a setup to better handle the heat (WC or afternmarket heatsink....non-reference once they show up).

Nice what type of framerates do you hit on BF4? I always wondered what these cards could do given some proper cooling and google searches yield nothing.

With my cards o/c'ed to 1.1Ghz GPU (no throttle) and 5.4Ghz Memory this is what I go with BF4 SP with FRAPS.

Come back in a month and let us know if it's still working. I flashed one of my R9 290 cards at launch and it worked for a week. It is now a door stopper.

Interesting to know. What exactly happened when it became a door stopper?

You lost 5 FPS on the minimums. That's not a win imo. I'd want those back.

It was on air though? Reference cooler?
