as stated in my first post. These are XFX R9 290's. the first two cards were bought from new egg and and the serial numbers are consecutive and start with the OWU055... The third card i bought from SuperBiiz with serial number starting with OXU044...
The model and rev numbers are as follows:
here is my third card
model no: R9-290A-EN
part no: R9-290A-ENFC
I hope that everyone gets a chance to unlock thier cards. I was extremly fortunate to have three cards that unlocked. Guys don't get discouraged about buying one of these cards and seeing the rev 1.1. all three of my cards worked fine. I hope you enjoy. I'll keep you posted with 2 way crossfire and 3 way crossfire.
these are all the cards unlocked
and card 1
they all have the same device id number. but i assure you i can upload the pics of the serial numbers for proof. If anybody wan't or needs anything else just ask and i'll what i can do. To the OverClocker's many many thanks.
