    Do you know if the M290X is compatible with the M17x R2?

    "I expect it's very stable" - is an educated guess not a strong indicator that yes, it is compatible. Such an answer can only be provided by someone who has installed a M290X in a M17x R2.

    I've had reports of people using the m290x in m17x-r2, though no details regarding whether this was done in crossfire or not.

    I had the M290X in M17x R2 and it booted up to desktop just fine, sadly one of the Vrams was faulty, or the connections to it, but it did boot up without a hitch. I have another M290X coming in that i'll be putting in the M17x R2.
