I found a post by you from 2013 in the R9 290/290X owners thread, referring to the fuse built into my R9 290. I recently had a power surge and I thought my card was dead, but now I'm wondering if it's the fuse. I see the gold conductor in the fuse, but mine appears to have a little dot in the middle of the gold. Do you think the fuse might be blown? I'm having a hard time finding a pic of a good one

You can not load an XMP profile with the DFI board. You must manually enter the settings and it will run the specs of the profile, but DFI for some reason only allows XMP profiles to load correctly at stock processor speeds. If I understand what you're asking you want to know why XMP loads values which are off. The board can only have XMP profiles loaded without any additional overclocking and even then their XMP settings suck. ::EDIT:: XMP settings suck is not very helpful. DFI's X58 board does support XMP but it is made for fine tuning and so it was never developed as far as the memory manufacturers had taken the technology. They essentially have a great set of RAM tweaks available with a half working XMP system.
