Hi, can anyone help me with a little problem ...

I've got 2 HD 6870 connected by Crossfire , one XFX and the other Sapphire. Looks like when I connect the XFX like primary and the Sapphire secondary the Crossfire works ok, but not with the performance that I've expected (like 15% less).

So because of the low performance I've decided to shift the video cards, but then the Crossfire stopped working. It only takes one video card and not the other one.



I have the last Catalys drivers 10.12 and the Win7 x64 fully updated.

CPU: Phenom II 965 @ 4.0, HD 6870 x2, Cooler Master 850w, ECS A790GXM (dual x8 PCI-E or Single x16 PCI-E).

Thanks.

It' looks like i can be included. I finally decided on which card to buy and chose this Gigabyte card:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125348

I went back and forth for days trying to decide, because i don't usually game but still wanted a good mid-range card. It had good reviews and free shipping(which always helps) and to note, this has got to be one the coolest looking boxes i've ever seen! Hopefully it will be delivered shortly!

I tried searching but didn't come up with anything, I am about to purchase two 6870s and I wanted to know if the dual monitor issues have been resolved yet.

This can be the solution for me cause im using both clips atm. I'll test again without the clips but is it safe to use the cooler like that? cause cooler seems really heavy with 2x120mm fans and only 4 screws holding it.

I ended up using a bit of thermal grease with the thermal epoxy and it worked out quite well!!
I'm using the old vrm sink which comes with S1. It wasn't fitting in the beginning but i cut the both sides of it with hacksaw and then it fit well. There was some paste stuff on the vrm's when i remove the stock cooler. I left it and put the vrm sink on it with it's own sticker thing. My Vreg temp. doesn't reach 50c above so i think there is no problem about it. OCCT start artifacting after gpu temp 2 reaches 105c.

Haven't dropped below 30 fps for the most part while playing metro 2033 Max'd out...I'm normally a 60+ Fps kind of guy. But I don't mind it for single player games.(Especially one as demanding as 2033) Very happy with my 6850 performance.
Edit : I'm still not on the list...Stop lagging it and put me on!
