It looks like is voltage problem, I have seen in others post that the card has spikes of voltage, for that I recommend to turn up the power limit and the VDDC Offset. Ofcourse u will have to configurate the sofware to open it at Windows start or do it always...
RMA-ed it, though the same problem (no video signal) would still manifest itself, apparently (exchanged Asus DCUII for GB Windforce, r9 290). If only one video cable would be inserted (regardless of which slot would be occupied by it), would the card automatically "interpret" it as the main peripheral? Would seem to have only tried with HDMI cables, and would want to inquire as to whether any of the other slots would be considered as "main" ones. (DVI/DP).

Would seem to have ostensibly read on a few sites (as well as on the Mobo's manufacturer website) that they'd supposedly be compatible.
I sent my R9 290 in for RMA due to black screen issues. Had to wait over 2 months (Club 3D) but finally got it back today. Pretty much exact same card (but with some added fingerprints all over the PCB and dust on the fan blades) and same Elpidia VRAM. Popped it in, updated to the latest stable driver (14-4-win7-win8-win8.1-64-dd-ccc-whql), rebooted, system crash and finally black screen... The black screen was under a condition of minimal GPU load (sitting at desktop after a reboot).
During the RMA waiting time I popped my old HD 5870 back in and my system was 100% stable btw. I'm running a Corsair 750W PSU (CMPSU-750TX) which has pushed 2x 5870's in crossfire with zero issues) for reference.
Even the latest beta driver causes my system to black screen (amd-catalyst-14.7-rc1-windows-july9). Today I fired up my PC and just left it at the log on screen. An hour later the GPU fan was screaming at 100% and the system had black screened again... Don't tell me my power supply or one of the rails is not adequate. I have a power meter in series before my APC 1500VA UPS is plugged into the wall and my system (including the monitor) never uses more than 200W at idle.
AMD I spent over $500 for a piece of hardware I cannot even use. What am supposed to do now? RMA the RMA'ed card?
Just an FYI, your fan on the GPU physically cannot get up to 100% on login screen. Maximum the fan can go to on it's own fan profile, which it runs until you log in to windows & something like Afterburner takes over, is 55%, which is still loud, but nothing like 100% fan speed:

It sounds like overheating and/or a bad card.
I have a person I just sold one of my 290Xs I got rid of recently having this same issue, and he can't seem to figure out it... but he is also having high temperature issues, which I did not have with the card, and it ran flawlessly for me for over 2 weeks of intense gaming usage, so I'm really stumped as to how to help him with this issue.
It's crazy to me that he seems to have good airflow in his case yet the card is reaching 85C+, when I never saw it go over 70C the entire time I was using it myself (I let the fan go up to 100% at 65C specifically to avoid overheating issues, I play with headphones on so the noise don't bug me)
