r9 290x crossfire? - Page 3

speeking of psu I think my friends 1250 watt psu is bad, the reason why i think so is cause of the problems he has been having, random shutoffs, game crashs, blue screens, black screens and he was having this problem with only one r9 290 and his problems have gotten worst with two cards now. is there a way to test if it is his psu?

the only way is to be a true friend and install your friend's gpus into your system.

anyway, pls. make sure your friend disables eyeinfinity (if set) and crossfire prior to updating driver. i would go as far as unplugging power to secondary card. keep it in place just disconnect power.

in CCC there's like three different places you can enable it in try gaming or performance tab.
