Before i start doing this.... is there any way to test the second as primary without having to switch PCI-E slot? I have them under watercooling so i can't do this unless i completly unmount my watercooling.

The point of swapping the second card to first PCIe is to know something is wrong with the PCIE slot where the second card occupies or the card itsef has issues. Also, check all power connectors are firmly seated.

If they are watercooled, just remove the bridge, plug the monitor to the second card. Power down while doing this.

Test each stick of DIMM if one of them is faulty.

Yeah i know it was the point, i myself wanted to do this but given they are under watercooling, i didnt know if i could find a way to avoid unmounting everything. Thanks for the help.


And i have unistalled AB already so it doesnt seem to be the problem as it wasnt a problem at all when i played BF3 for 3-4 days straight and now suddently everything is back to crashing...

Anyways, be back shortly, gonna run a few tests.... AGAIN. and if it doesnt work ill format again to see if it isnt for like the 4th time a registry issue caused by bad drivers installation even tho i do use driver sweeper everything in Safe mode....

Anyways thx for the help.. brb

So i went on and removed ram dimm and tested it.

Tried with one, went on and tried Furmark and BF3 and all was working fine
Tried with two, same
Tried with three, same

Right now everything is working just fine with 3 ram sticks.

I am not overclocking or anything, GPU and CPU are at default.
ULPS is disabled and MSI after is not installed either.

Although my comp did get hard crashes out of no where prior to these test so what that did it set my cmos to it's default state.

My current windows time is also wrong and so is my current bios time (they are the same)

Like i said earlier, when i learned that this could be a problem linked to the cmos battery i went on and switched it with my cmos battery that i had with my last motherboard which had never caused me a single issue. they are both cr2032 batteries 1.3v but the problem didnt seem to go away as it's back now and as annoying as ever.

So right now i'm kinda stuck as yes my crossfire is CURRENTLY working but i know that sooner or later either it will go nutz on my ass again or that my comp will just hard crash as it did it 3 times tonight.

I will go buy a brand new battery tonight just to see how it goes.


What i want to test the most tho is to see if i can put my 2nd card as my main one as i did try what you said;

I ungluged my HDMI cable from my main card, plugged it in my second card.
Shutdown my computer
Removed Crossfire bridge
Powered it back up
It then booted into Windows but i had no screen so i didnt get to test it's stability.

I am not sure on UD3 but on my UD9, the card I plug the monitor to will be as primary rendering and don't have to change anything in BIOS.

It is possible to remove the primary card from its slot (unplug PCIe power too) without having to take the loop down?

After CMOS reset, do not forget to go into BIOS to load "Optimized Defaults".
