hey guys, I think I fixed it!!! I just swapped the cards around. Did a re-run of the tests. Now I'm getting these:

Heaven 2.5 FPS = 62.8 Score = 1581

3dmark11 = 11365

plus in crysis 2 i'm getting 60-80fps vsync off during firefights with 1920 x 1200

temps now never go over 75C on both cards.

Is this an improvement?

It is an improvement yes but still for a 6990 + 6950 Trifire it is not great.

The problem is that you probably put the 6990 in the 8x PCI Slot not the 16x

So look up where the x16 PCI slots on your mother board are ...I think it is the first and the third here you can see in this video where they are "Lines mentions it"

That will give the cards optimal performance since the UD7 is optimized for Tri Fire.

While gaming on 1920x1080, I can only achieve 80-90fps. When Crysis 2 was first release, I was used to seeing 150fps but I had horrible flashes and lots of screen tearing. After a patch or two, flashes and tearings were gone but FPS dropped significantly.
Not sure about your problem with 3dMark06.
There's an easy fix for that performance issue using Radeon Pro

PM me if you need it, I'll be glad to help you out.
