Free X2900XTXs: The best crossfire that never was - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Your PS may be a problem.

It is not 2900 Crossfire certified and is lacking required cables
(Two 6 & 8 Pin Molex). One card might work unless they
are just plain broken.

Well, even though they don't work, there are other uses for them. Decorations have already been suggested. But what about self-defense mechanisms? If I had a card that big I'd carry it around with me. You could probably beat a man to death with that thing.

I'd rather see Jess Alba undressed than your circuit cards.
If you are really interested to see if the R&D 2900's can be
resusitated you might provide forum with detailed failure indications.
"Won't boot" is equivalent to "car won't start" or "system no worky".
Cranking one of these babies up is a worthy challenge to OC.n

"Err No it wouldn't!"

Hilarious not. Probability 50/50.

Notice the card brace side. Looks more than a little bent.

Owner used non certified PS to boot.

So little tech info is suspicious.

Won't boot!?!? Oh well. They must be broke.

Lets tear em open and play show and tell.
