XFX HD 6950 Crossfire Help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've searched for solutions on crossfire and haven't found any, hoping someone could help. First off I don't OC. I had a 1st card - XFX Radeon HD 6950 2gb model# HD-695X-CN / HD 6950 800M 2GB DDR5 DUAL MINIDP HDMI DUAL DVI PCI-E, So I bought what I thought was the same exact card Card #2 - model# HD-695A-CN / HD 6950 800M 2GB DDR5 DUAL DP HDMI DUAL DVI PCI-E. They look totaly different and 1 weights quite a bit more than the other. Can these cards run in CF?
1st card ran great on BF3 or anything, no problems at all. When I put in 2nd card at first I could play maybe 5 min. and it got worse as I tried to play, where it would lockup on starting BF3. This was a fresh install of Windows7 64bit on a new SSD installed and optimized according to Sean's setup, http://www.overclock.net/t/1156654/seans-windows-7-install-optimization-guide-for-ssds-hdds. Installed all updates for win7, updated all drivers for amd. So I've done a fresh install of Win7 and all updates. Put in 2nd card I bought and it worked great just like #1 card did.
Since I know both cards work good by there selves, do I just install 2nd card again and add the crossfire jumper and restart and see how things go or do I need to do something different? Thanks in advance (Hopefully pics will be below)

They will work together. It doesn't matter if it is s reference or non-reference as far as them being compatible.

I can't help much on the crossfire setup but check the crossfire thread and I bet you could get some help there.

i suggest you download GPU-z and MSI afterburner. check temps when running games. lock ups mostly are due to overheating. for my personal experience my old 6950 which i had to RMA was faulty and would only run at 500ghz COre CLOCK. they gave me new one and i run things flawlessly. thats another part to look at. good luck!
