If you are replacing the cooler with aftermarket one or waterblock they will even offer you to have them put them on the card at your expense (shipping).

Thanks a lot wink.gif

For those attempting tests, especially in dual or triple setups, it's worth remembering the thermals have a big effect. The card will slow itself once a temp/fanspeed threshold is reached. Tomshardware noted that this is particularly evident in a crossfire environment.

I've ordered a pre-flashed card from OCUK. Happy to answer any questions omnce it arrives on Monday.

Thanks man! That proves the tool is working!

Unfortunately, your primary card is locked.
If you want to test the 2nd one, remove primary and replace by secondary one.
hawaiinfo reads only the 1st adapter, CF is not supported.

Questions: Is it safe for me to run with 290x Asus.rom on a unlockable 290?

Have we got definitive evidence that these cards are 'full' 290xs? Could it not be the case that they were a failed yield that was therefore bios locked to a 290? If that is the case then we might expect to see the cards burn out over time when unlocked. It happened before with an nvidia card (when I remember which I will link to it).

Counter evidence comes in the form of OCUK who are shipping pre-unlocked cards with a 2 year guarantee. That would suggest they are confident that they are indeed full, stable 290x cards.
