Well its been a month and I thought I would update. With only minus one day of going back to 290 bios I decided to take the risk and go ahead with the 290X bios for the rest of the month.

I can happily say I have no issues whatsoever. No black screen, no artifacts, nothing.

I'm going to stay with the 290X bios for the life of the card now.
