So I just got a new MSI R9 290x Gaming edition. I have a brand new PSU, and no OC on CPU. no OC on card. Stock clocks are core clock 1040 mem clock 1250. When I attempt to mine at anything above -I 13 I get a driver crash. I have tried drivers 13.11 until the newest beta drivers available all with the same outcome. I have also flashed the latest bios from MSI same card just newer bios. My miner settings TC 32765 -w 512 -v 1 -g 1 -I 13 anything higher and it crashes like I said before. But when I lower mem clocks to 1150 and core to 1000 it will mine at -I 18 is it just a bad card?

Try lowering your TC.  I have mine at 27800, core 1000 mem 1375.

I couldn't get my first r9 290x, an MSI card (Twin Frozr), to run stable for the life of me above I=13.  I exchanged it for a Sapphire brand card and it solved all my problems.  Needless to say, I went back and bought three more Sapphires the next day.  All work beautifully.

Thanks for that, We have 4 cards total 2 diff machines all the same issues. I have 4 xfx 290's double d's full liquid coming to me this week. Im not sure whats up with these MSI cards. Work great for gaming but no go on the stability for mining unfortunatly Sad
