Please note that setting the "Without Powerplay" on mine, with 13.3 Beta 3 drivers and stock 28 bios, caused instability in my Crossfire setup -- so I leave mine at "Disabled." However, I never re-tested that specific option with the Sapphire 30 bios or the 13.X Unofficial drivers.
I'll run some more tests with that option tonight and see if it's stable now.
