few day ago i brought a gpu Sapphire R9 390 from a guy. after installing the card i hav found that i cant overclock beyond 1010gpu/1500mem no matter what. Increasing the power to 50% or volt to +50mv does not effect. the clock value remains the same in furmark. done so many things. tried with msi after burner and amd trix. i wonder if its locked or something. i have seen people achieving 1100gpu/1600mem overclocks. need your help guys. wats wrong with the card or wat am i doing wrong??????
