Good idea. I just got off of work and was gonna order some from FrozenCPU until I saw the damn shipping. I don't need much and I refuse to pay more for shipping than the actual product

@ Striker

I will get some pics up as soon as I get back from work. Gonna stop by Advanced Auto and see if I can pick up some rubber tubing on the way home. Gotta wait til Monday to get my plexiglass. I have a friend who works at a glass shop nearby and he gets me plexiglass for pretty cheap compared to the online shops and Home Depot, Lowe's etc. Not to mention he cuts it to spec for me Hopefully I'll have everything looking good tonight.

Hey guys! Happy Friday!

I picked up a 2nd XFX 5770.

I have never setup crossfire before. I am wondering if a crossfire bridge is needed to setup crossfire for this GPU.

The XFX 5770 did not come with any crossfire bridges, but I have 1 from my 3870.

If I do need crossfire bridges, how many are needed?

If possible, please link me a guide or video for help with configuration.

I have read through my motherboard's manual but it wasn't really much help.

Thanks!

Well, from the way Enigma did it I'd say yes, you need the bridge, probably then go into CCC and enable them as a unit. I'll find you a vid if you need it. Doesn't seem to be to many here tonight.

Done. Finally done.


Well, sorta. I need to measure this out to fit a false bottom. I think I'm going to get some red acrylic.


Ooh, I need to take that fan off and clean out those fins.
Tomorrow, tomorrow, you're always a day away


Yes, that's electrical tape.


I'm also going to put some red acrylic in front of the hard drive bay to cover this mess.


It was easier than I thought fitting that 8-pin back there.


I also bought a new..ahem..."desk" to match. Folding table FTW!

Thanks Bri. Yea I found 1 guy's youtube..

YouTube- Crossfire 2 Sapphire ATI 5770 (850/1200MHz) & AMD Phenom II X4 720BE (OC 3.6GHz)

He says it only needs 1 Crossfire bridge. The 2nd "port" would be for triple cards or more. Is that accurate?

Also, are there specific Crossfire Bridges for specific cards, or will the one that came with my 3870 be ok?

From what I've seen they're the same bridge. It should just fit across the first sections. For a third card you use the second sections. Yeah, what you said.

Clee, Enigma was here a minute ago. Maybe he went to get you a vid. I hope your bridge fits because I have 4 of them sitting here not being used.

@ Hoohah, what game is that on the screen?? I've seen shots but you know, I'm old and..... what was I saying??

Both of the Blue connectors are rated at 16x and after some research I realized that, not only can you, but most people in the know use this configuration for higher benchies. The biggest problem is finding crossfire bridge connectors that are long enought to go between the cards, but the Sapphire 5770 came with the long ones so I had two for the connection. The benchmarks from the two 5770s Actually beat my old 4870x2 space heater and uses a forth of the juice. @ 19469 3d Mark 06

So the Answer is yes. I hope this thread helps someone else out Later. Thanks for the one person who replied..

About Software. I already had the ATI Graphics software (CCC) Installed with my first card that I put in a month ago.


1. I unplugged the computer.

2. I unplugged my Internet Cable.

3. Then installed the second 5770 into the PCIe no# 3 slot.

3b. Then I took the Crossfire bridge from the first 5770 and the Second 5770 And connected both bridges.

4. Hooked up the PCIe Six Pin Power connector to the socket in the back of the card.

5. It took a little while for the system to POST at first. sweat sweat.

6. Then it went to the log on screen and burped 3 times on the Video. more sweating.

7. And then When I logged in the CCC asked me if I wanted Crossfire and the Check mark was already checked for yes. I Pressed okay and it burped again.

8. Then I plug in my Internet cable back in the computer.


NOTE: No Restart needed
