[Official] Asus CrossHair IV Formula/Extreme Club - Page 709

post #7081 of 13131
Im pretty late to the club, I dont really have time to read all 700ish pages..

I was wondering why my Nvidia card isnt being used with the Hydra 200 chip active with the newest HydraLogix driver installed?

I have a HD6870 1gig card in the first PCI-E slot and a GTX470 in the 4th PCI-E slot..

According to the manual that is the correct locations...

When I run games or benchmarks with MSI afterburner OSD on it shows that the GTX 470 isnt being used AT ALL... I thought both cards were to be used?

DO I need some sort of special DVI cable or something for it to work?

Both cards are detected in Windows 7 64bit

AMD card has Catalyst 11.1a Drivers(BETA or whatever)
Nvidia card has 260.99 Drivers (the newest drivers didnt work at all, some sort of new feature to block dual video cards of different brands I guess)
Lucid HydraLogix 1.7.104a Drivers

Do I have to Crossfire 2 HD6870's with the GTX 470 for it to work?

I had Crossfire HD6870's with an 8800GTS and it worked fine ..the card was being used but it was slowing down the other cards.. so I got the GTX 470..

I dont think ill have enough power to run Crossfire HD6870's AND a GTX 470 with a 1000watt 6rail 90+ certified power supply ...its a close fit...like around 800watt usage with all of them during load, thats why I only used a single HD6870.

Have you tried booting with only one stick? Booting with one stick and the mem ok button? Can you get into bios?
I was able to get to the QVL on another desktop and see that you're correct, though that's disappointing. Even so, can that account for the varying results in red vs black slots?

I have tried booting with one stick in all slots with and without memok and no luck. Unfortunately, I don't have any ram on the QVL to test with.

edit: Nope, can't get to BIOS.

Needs to be in slot 1 and 2 at least for inital install of lucid.

I would grab some other ram.

Anyone have any recommendations of QVL ram that can be had reasonably cheap locally? In case I end up having to RMA the motherboard, I unfortunately have only about 10 days left to do that. Serves me right for not putting this monster together when I got the parts in!

I need to take a look at the NB anyway...believe it or not, I wasn't aware of that issue when I first ordered the board...go me...

you have a microcenter near you or FRY's?

edit: These are what I have and would recommend if you can get them. They are fully compatible with the formula and good sticks.

Installed lucid drivers with cards in slots 1, 2 and 5.

Set-up PhysX on my 9800GT with everything running fine.

Moved second 5850 to slot 3 and now lucid has gone

I believe that would be because it is not seeing two GPU's. slot 5 is strange for sure.

If I leave them in slots 1, 2 and 5 it works fine but If I use slot 2 my hose kinks on my water cooling between the two 5850's

I do, though I don't think I could make it to either before they close today. I know of at least one member here that successfully uses the same ram as me, so I'm going to message him and see if he had any issues like this when first setting up his build. In the meantime, I'll see if I can get some compatible ram for testing purposes.
