    Matrix 290X = you dont need the key vsg, just bridge the enable Ln2 mode spots on the PCB, and you got 1,85v core, and all the other goodies via gpu tweakit instead

    you will need to patch the spots, even with the exhibit key.. in order to enable OV (Ln2 mode) i believe

    hardware VS software controlled voltages

    2) Use hotwire if you have a ROG motherboard, which I don't atm
    3) Use the xtreme control board if you can get one.

    I haven't heard anyone testing gpu tweak with that one specific resistor removed so I can't confirm if it's reliable.
    Thank you Lummi for the info. I spent more time then I like too in the school of hard knocks. And any advice is good advice in my book

    @ vsg28 - Sorry about the OC tool thingy but may be after the team plays a bit with them we could work something out.

    Sorry I missed this post till now. I am not overly concerned about the 290x Matrix as AMD are pretty good about overvolting. But my experiences with the 290x lightnings and 780Ti KPEs have shown it is more fun with the 780 Ti. I will likely get 2 each from both sides but getting around Nvidia Greenlight means shorting the pads and using GPU Tweak which has not been nice to some of the matrix cards in LN2 mode.

    Alright, I just got my xcb soldered to the card. For some reason measuring 3.3 voltage via it doesn't work for me, via multimeter. Don't know if it's a bug or something is not getting contact.

    Hi Luumi

    Just saw this post. You might want to re-solder that header as it looks like what they call a cold solder joint. Your solder is contacting the pin and not so much the board and pin. You need to use a very fine needle point tip on your iron and @ least a 23 - 25 watt. Touch the board then pin hold for a second or two then touch the solder to the PIN the solder should flow to the board and pin at the same time. If the solder does not melt hold the iron on the board a bit longer. Do not try and melt the solder with the tip of the iron. Let it melt when touching the board and pin. A good solder joint will have a shinny appearance and you will be able to see the connection of solder /pin/board. Good luck

    Hah, kinda useless at this point meankeys when neither of my cards run. I will get a new hot air station early next week and try my luck with removing the broken mosfet now when I got confirmation from asus engineer that neither of those 2 mosfets should be required for the card to run.

    Im on the ocn hwbot team and have been on a hiatus due to a ankle injury. I have a asus 780ti reference, many rog boards including my current x79 gene with a 4930k and tomorrow my exchanged gtx 780ti matrix platinum should be arriving. I have a chiller setup that is just sitting there waiting for something to put it to work. It would be nice if i could get one of these cards ( should one be available ) Would be even nicer if they grew on trees.. as they are hard to find. Since i have been out of commision for a bit if someone has a link to the gpu tweak issue it would be appreciated.
    just saw the above post and i understand if the cards are a in house only thing. I spent most of lastt year working with people putting closed loop coolers on their gpus in the gpu mod and red-mod areas.. But having moved on
    to water blocks and recently the commercial chiller im just itching to get my new hardware under icewater. :>
    the board looks top notch tho. . drool.

    Thanks
    sunset1 on hwbot and ocn.
