quick crossfire question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
is there any reason to hook up 2 crossfire bridges instead of just 1 or is it just for the look?

No reason whatsoever. Older cards required both bridges to work properly, however current gen cards do not and only require one UNLESS stated otherwise in the manual. There's virtually no performance increase either, in fact, in some cases using two bridges rather than one supposedly causes screen flickering.

You're best of just using one bridge unless stated otherwise by the manufacturer

I had the opposite. Had screen flicker with one and has since gone away with 2 bridges. 2x5770s
