Getting Hard-Lock when I enable crossfire-Formula-Z 8350 cpu

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok this started happening the other day after a fresh windows install I go to enable crossfire from Catalyst control and I get a hard lock ( right away )! .............. The motherboard is Asus Crosshair Formula-Z and the cpu is the 8350, The video cards are Radeon 6970! Is there a fix for this I have the latest drivers ( i think ) But is their a known crossfire issue with 990 fx and crossfire or something? I dont know what to do now if i cant use a 2ng gpu it pretty much defeats the purpouse of this entire build so iam considering taking it back unless of course I can resolve it! Iam not sure if I need a bios update and Metro last light is giving me 9-10 fps no matter what graphic settings iam at ( really weird) its almost like my gpu has no purpose! Anyone know what could be causing this? Thank you
