Question about Foxconn Blood Rage

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've never crossfired any graphics cards before but I remember when I bought the Blood Rage that I wouldn't be able to do Tri Fire or Tri Sli or something like that. However if I remember some mother board's PCI Express slots run at 16x 4x or something like that and I'm not quite sure what that means or how I can adjust that in Bios. So my main question is if I buy two cards to crossfire will I have to adjust something in the Blood Rage's Bios to make sure the second card's slot is running right or anything? Thanks for your help.

All you have to do is uninstall your drivers with driver sweeper..shut the computer off...install the card...boot up in safemode...install drivers... enable Xfire in CCC, then you should be good

Ok great thanks +rep. So the Bloodrage doesn't have the problem of the second PCI Express running slower or whatever it is not 16x or something. I used to hear about it before buying my system but I wasn't quite sure exactly what it meant.

Not sure if the blood rage has x16/x16 pci-e slots or if it's x16/x8, but even if it was x16/x8 the bandwidth of the pci-e 2.0 slot is so huge it really wouldn't make a difference.
