Comprehensive ASUS R9 Fury Strix Overclocking Guide by Xtreme Addict: 1450/1000 under LN2 (+ unlock to Fury X)

The Fury graphics card is a lower bin variant of AMD's top model Fury X with a slightly lower amount of Compute Units. But unlike the Fury X, AIB partners like ASUS, Sapphire, MSI, and others are allowed to slap the GPU on a custom designed PCB for better overclocking and better performance. In a comprehensive overclocking guide, Xtreme Addict walks you through the steps to fully unleash the ASUS Radeon R9 Fury Strix graphics card.

The steps include unlocking the Compute Units to enable Fury X grade performance, enabling the hotwire soldering pads, a 0.95v Rail mod, and of course the trimpot/hotwire VGPU, VMEM, VPLL (VDDCI) mods.

The result? A GPU frequency of 1450 MHz and HBM frequency of 1000 MHz. For the HBM that's a 100% overclock. The performance goes up from 6237 points at default to 6756 after unlocking the CUs, then 8121 points after overclock on air cooling, to eventually end up at 9634 points when fully unleashed with liquid nitrogen.

Check out the thread on the forum to find out more details, pictuers, and information!

Default ULTIMATE ASUS R9 FURY @ (X) STRIX LN2 TIPS

Thx to Asus I was able to test the newest Fiji card based on custom PCB and I have to admit it impressed me a lot.

Photo gallery:










































STRIX FURY X MOD

Thx to tx12 OCN wizzard we can push Fury cards even higher!

LINK TO THE ORIGINAL THREAD/TOOLS

I will later upload modified LN2 bioses for Asus R9 Fury Strix card

Stock (3584 Shaders/224 TMU)



3776 Shaders/236 TMU



3840 Shaders/240 TMU



Fury "X" 4096 Shaders/256 TMU



Fury "X" 4096 Shaders/256 TMU OC on air - still has some potencial despite unlocking units - TESS OFF



VOLTAGE MODS

Note that all you are doing on your own responsibility and volt mods void your warranty, same as flashing unlocked bioses and so on


1. Enable HOTWIRE soldering points, do it as in my picture, don't connect HOTWIRE LN2 pads! cause it will trigger 0.95v rail OVP in drivers



2. 0.95v Rail mod (after the mod stock will be around 1.06v)



3. Trimpot/hotwire VGPU, VMEM, VPLL (VDDCI) mods




My card after modding:








GPU POT MOUNTING

Note that Fury has different mounting holes - they are even bigger than old huge G80 mounting. I used modified G80 mounting from Kingpin TEK9 6.66 Fat Pot and it worked perfectly.

SOFTWARE GPUTWEAK 2 TIPS:

1. After flashing LN2 bios you gain VGPU regulation up to 2.0v



2. Don't forget to use "Overclocking range enhancement" if you want to have memory frequency control.



LN2 TIPS:

1. Use HDMI port (I used it with HDMI - DVI adapter), on my card screen is blinking on DVI after 0.95v rail mod. HDMI port is fine even at -180*C.

2. If you can't enter OS at certain temperature - lower 0,95v rail (E.G. from 1,25v to 1,2v).

3. 0.95v rail set to 1,25v should be enough for -120 -160*C range.

4. With lower temperature (-50*C and more) you have to use higher VGPU to boot into OS! I had to use around 1.35-1.5v (stress) to boot into OS, it will be around 1.1-1.15v idle (stock is 0.9v in idle).

5. You can set by trimpot/hotwire VGPU OS "boot" voltage and later raise it by GPUTWEAK - it works.

6. 1000 MHz HBM (500 MHz is stock) is current maximum frequency which we can set. For that I had to use 1.55v VMEM (stock is 1.35v). Note that on some cards score might be lower with too high memories.

7. My card doesn't have CB or CBB.

8. PWM is strong, 1.6+ VGPU wasn't a problem with a delta fan on it.

9. Use stock PLL (AUX - VDDCI). Higher gave me nothing (stock is around 1.0v), 1.2+ can kill your GPU.

BIOSES AND SOFTWARE

Stock Fury and Fury X bios have COLD SLOW bug below 0*C (3D mode doesn't work), you need a special BIOS with a fix. For now I used Fury X (ref) LN2 fixed BIOS but it works on Fury Strix cards.

UPDATE:

Note that LN2 Fixed bioses have disabled monitoring of temperature, you can flash it and try on air and it won't kill you card, but you will be playing "blind".

4096

http://www.oclab.pl/art/xa//EXTREMEO...rix4096ln2.rom




ATIFLASH 2.71

1. Use only ATIFLASH in CMD (WINFLASH corrupts UEFI mode)

command: atiflash -f -p 0 bios.rom

LN2 results

Quick test just to check all the mods and behaviour on cold. From what I know some cards should easy do around 1600 MHz. Most likely limit will be similar to R9 290X cards .





Locked stock shaders:




Fully Unlock





Card is a great fun. Very easy, issues free. Everything works, software (GPUTWEAK 2), drivers and so on. Thx Asus for that great card! I hope we will see a lot of results on it

All of this wouldn't be possible without Asus R&D support (Jon, TL) and tx12

Thanks for sharing, I cant remember having seem HBM clocked that high, results are quite impressive

What kind of CB does the new memory have?

Wow that HBM frequency!!

Did you have a perfect core with CUInfo showing two columns of locked CU's at the end?
