Question about X-Fire / Afterburner readings

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello I am new to the forums and new to X-fire. I just setup 2 Sapphire 6970's and a new Power supply last night and am seeing something strange.

While running Unigine and 3DMark in windowed modes this is what I am seeing in Afterburner.

GPU usage on the Main card is 99% and the 2nd card is 0-14%(Unigine) 0-32%(3dMark) with the majority of the time sitting at 0%
Core Clock for the Main card is 765 and the 2nd card 157-765 with the majority of the time sitting at 157
Memory Clocks for the Main card is 1375 and the 2nd card 300-1375 with the majority of the time sitting at 300

So it looks like the 2nd card is not even being used.
Is this how it is supposed to be or am I reading it incorrectly?
I have checked in the CCC and it shows X-fire enabled. Thanks for any help or info you can give me on this.

Here are my current specs.

I7 920 (OC 3.6 CV 1.216V Stable)
using Fort 120 Heatsink w/2 120mm Fans
Corsair Dominator TR3X6G1600C8D (OC 1512 Freq 756MHz 1.65V)
ASRock X58 Extreme
2 Sapphire 6970's XFire (No OC)
Corsair CMPSU-1000HX A
Sound Blaster X-FI Extreme PCI-E
WD VelociRaptor
and Older IDE HD
Thermal Take Tower with 7 Fans
Win 7 64b

Since you new to CrossFire.

CrossFire WILL ONLY run in fullscreen.

NEVER in windowed mode.
