O and make sure you have msi afterburner 2.1.0
My driver version is up to date which is 11.2 according to afterburner anyway ! i switched around the Cards now My XFX is the top card and HIS bottom card!

No more over heating problem! Except It still using my HIS card - so eventhough now the screen is plugged into XFX the GPU usage is still 0% on a fullscreen 3d application!

I'm thinking the HIS was overheating because it's failing and bottlenecking. It's alot like my NB on my Board. If you ramp up the usage in the CPU it's not bad. But if you ramp it up and open a lot of Browser windows and it bogs down your network the NB gets extremely hot.

To the point of freakin me out.

Just to make sure, You have a crossfire bridge on your cards right? Play a game with crossfire turned off and on and can you see a difference in fps? Is your motherboard bios up to date? Not the cards bios, But the motherboard.

Edit : I just looked up your motherboard, And it only has 1 pciex16 slot and 1 pciex4. Thats not a good motherboard to crossfire on, But it should let you use crossfire.

I deleted and re installed all drivers and updated them VIA AMD's site - both cards are now working on Full screen 3d apps which is the good news...
bad news the HIS card being on Slot 2 still gets slighty hotter than the GPU1 even though screen is plugged into GPU1.
so im thinking its either that the card is faulty or Bottle necked ! or like you said its being run inefficiently due to my MB! Lack of coolness towards Xfire!

well i guess its just time for a new pc

I love my EVGA FTW 200 but it probably overkill for your setup Just make sure it has at least 2 pcie 2.0 x8 slots and you should be good

Can you run Asus Maximus III? Not sure cause I'm not an Intel guy.Nvm, what am I sayin you can run it.

But if you're gonna sport the Badge, might as well have some street cred to back it.

I don't count rebates as the total price. There is always that one instance of denial and I'd hate to unknowingly lead a fella down the primrose path.

But yeah I was thinking cheaper, though he IS running the RoG in his avvy.
