Some update to ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0.

Apparently BIOS might get stuck on "Extreme" VRM setting which keeps all phases on. Newest Bios and proper checking of the setting may resolve the issue. Bad thing is that these boards may be subjected to faster aging due this, good thing that the CPU was usually not on that high load.

To improve thermals on VRM i replaced R9-290x with a watercooled FuryX, NB is not overclocked in my case, so i safely reduced NB voltage to stock. Because NB and VRM share cooler, it improved stability and VRM thermals under load.

Because the CPU isnt able to go above 3800Mhz reliably it wont me much an issue.
