    Yeah for the flickering just unplug the video cable from your card wait like 2 seconds and plug it back in kext edits should work in dp2 they do for me just download mine and put them in your kext folder

    I don't know but after 2 or 3 installs the one that always works for me is just adding the IDs to the kexts the only time i get black screens is when i have 2 monitors hooked to one card

  8. R9 290X Help for mavericks

    Some might disagree with me but just get what ever suits you more you won't see a difference in real world performance lol they are both almost the same that being said the r9 290x is a whole lot cheaper and thats what would make my mind up personally.....it also has more vram if you run at higher resolutions that's always a plus

  10. r9 290 (non-x) yosemited help

    Yeah i messed around with it some more and I don't even need the fakeID thing any more it just kinda started working I think its the IDs i put in the kext I don't think they was loading when I did it before i noticed that when i ran kext wizard...i rebooted and used kextload -v to load the 8000controller and the x4000 one and now it works without injecting anything so i took it out of my config.plist Do you ever get a windowserver error that freezes and unfreezes the screen at times? I have no idea what is causing it the only thing I can think of is where i'm using two r9 290s for dual monitor support and I reeeeally don't want to open my computer up and take one out v.v EDIT: yeah the 2 cards are causing a bunch of windowserver errors when i just use one monitor and card the errors stop i think this might be just yosemite
  11. OS X Yosemite DP's builds!

    Anyone else getting a error like this? WindowServer: Surface testing disallowed updates for 10 sequential attempts WindowServer: Surface testing allowed updates after 947 attempts when it happens my screen freezes for a bit and comes back and sometimes the whole thing just locks up but my mouse and i got to hard reset using 2 r9 290s using the second one to make the other monitor work other then this my set up runs awesomely

  14. r9 290 (non-x) yosemited help

    I don't think you can do that on any r9 290 from what i read awhile back http://www.overclock.net/t/1443242/the-r9-290-290x-unlock-thread unless you can still do it you just won't get the boost? i don't know
