    Well since this is still a Kaveri based CPU on socket FM2+ the AMD USB3.0 is provided by the chipset (A88X for the rear USB3 connectors).

    Nice review, thank you very much!
    Just wish they never bothered with SLI certification and saved a few bucks on that useless feature (imo).

    Was getting impatient and got one too plus a FX8350, gonna test it on air this week and fit it into my watercooled rig after that.
    So far the board is looking great =)

    This board looks to be a real killer for that pricetag.

    Looking forward to your OC results =)

    Do you know by any chance what maximum power draw the water pump header on this board supports?

    There are different models with different hardware for the G20BM. The NR010S model apparently has a R9 255 built in which is a midrange card at best, so it is not surprising it comes with a tiny fan....

    Yep those temps are what you can expect on most R9 290 models, the DC2 does a little worse on the VRM cooling side than others though.

    The VRMs should be rated for 125C so they are within specs,...

    Can you verify idle / load GPU clocks with something like GPU-Z / GPU-Tweak? 45C does sound a bit high for idle clocks unless you are watching videos etc.

    As for GTA I assume you are running it...

    Why should there be any problems with different bios versions? Even with 2 exact same models the chances are slim that the bios versions are identical unless you purchased them at the same time.

    It did change indeed, CF on that card is possible with any R9 290 / 290X model but for best performance / compatibility better go with 2 identical models.

    Looks like a driver issue, you might have to go back to 14.12. Also be sure to test 3DMark / Unigine with stock speeds, if it blacks out there I would go for RMA.

    Since we don't even know the power draw of a 390x it is hard to speculate on how much a possible x2 variant will use but one would guess about the same as the 295x2.
