It would not affect anything in my opinion. Never just "let a GPU sit there" personally biggrin.gif
It'd be too tough on my soul......
BUT I have left PCI, and PCI-E expansion cards installed without drivers or usage for months with no negative impacts...... Seems like a safe storage place to me wink.gif

Yeah, I don't want to put any stress on the card. But I'm too lazy to take it out for a few months when its going right back in there. I don't want to mess with re-positioning everything... lol.... I'm so blasted lazy.

Also, kinda disappointed with CF. Of all the games I play, every single one has issues with CF.

you disable crossfire first prior to uninstalling and installing drivers?

first time i crossfired after over a year (7900s were first) and my games work. no issues here.

edit: i disable crossfire, shutdown system, unplug power to secondary car, boot, and proceed to updating driver.
No need to do all that though. I've updated drivers without removing the second card or even unplug the PCIe power cable from the second card. No problem whatsoever. Crossfire doesn't work without drivers & disabling crossfire before updating drivers is moot since you're going to uninstall the driver first anyway.

Hey guys, I just finished my build, and I'm looking to dial it in a bit. I'm running quad 290x, EK blocks, and I'm hoping to go 1440p by three. However, it looks like I might need to purchase an active adapter? I lose the 3rd monitor. Darn, looks like that's what I need to do.

Now, what software setup should I be running for optimal performance? Eventually I'll be overclocking them, but for now I'm just looking to get things going at stock levels.

Maaan I just got such a good deal, and lucky, I was bidding on a r9 290 on ebay, stock cooler, had won the bid for 200 include shipping, then right after that I check my email and see another guy I had contacted on some swiss classified ad website he's trying to sell his r9 290x windforces.. I offered him the same price well 215 euros with shipping ( 260$) and he accepted, woa I'm so happy, also, glad the guy on ebay accepted that I retract my purchase... geeez !

Only problem, well not so much as winter is coming, gonna be heat ahha.

I gonna heat up the whole house with my Amd config (with fx@4.6 atm) lol.

All the dvi connections are dual link so you should be fine... Unless I'm wrong and any display needs to be in the top card... I'm curious as I want to do the same.

Did some playing around with gpu clocks today since I had a fresh restart(giving windows 10 a try).
sapphire reference 290X with ek waterblock.
Card doesn't like high voltage, I get flashing blackscreen, sometimes video can recover by ctrl alt del and task manager will pop-up and let me close benchmark. That was using 150mv vddc

I have card stable at 1200\1600, 125 vddc offset and 50 power limit. Using triXX. Temps are in check, I didn't even bother to install gpu-z, but core, vrm1 and vrm2 never go above 50c on furmark burn in test. Ran valley, 50c gpu, 1.352 vddc, 366W vddc power in, vrm1 48 and vrm2 38

Is there a problem with my card?
Seems like I should be able to pump 200mv no problem?

I too played around with some clocks... Discovered the PT1 bios has been troll'in me. On stock bios, my scores are much better in firestrike ultra. Hell on PT1, it wouldn't even finish at clocks I thought it was stable. This is on the 14.9 drivers...

Small thing to note too: at 1200/1500 +200mv my score was 7730 http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/4442444?

at 1200/1625 +200mv my score was 7789 http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/4442497?

I noticed the physics changed too, might be error. But interesting none the less...
