Arctic Accelero is probably what you're after. Keep in mind they'll vent hot air into the case so vented pci covers and an extra fan to push that air out the back helps.

And I don`t think it`s comic, i was just trying to be friendly.

Destrto: thanks for all the tips, really. I`ll try to contact the manufacter after cleaning up the slot.
Thank you very much for your help.

If anyone still have any ideas of what may be happening, i`ll accept them with my heart hahaha

and I don`t want to be de new provocative guy, but seriously Truedeal, work on your humor

Might be an issue with the card+slot.
My mobo has 4 PCIe slots, 2 of them are rated for 2.0 x16 with crossfire enabled.
I only have 2 PCIe devices on my system, namely my graphics cards.
When GPU1 is in PCIe1 it runs at 2.0 16x.
When GPU2 is in PCIe1 it runs at 1.1 1x, also affects performance and can't enable crossfire.
When GPU1 is in PCIe3 runs at 2.0 16x.
When GPU2 is in PCIe3 runs at 2.0 16x.
I tested it out with the other slots too and GPU2 reaches the maximum speed on the slots EXCEPT in PCIe1.
Card is not faulty, motherboard is not faulty either...
I've had my share of headaches with these two cards, this was just one of them.
I did several tests running them on crossfire/single plus changing the slave/master card to see what caused it. Nothing pointing out to hardware.

You could buy a better board?
RMA the one you have?

Like the above poster said you can RMA the parts and explain what is happening. If both of them were purchased at the same time in the same store even better.
I doubt it is the exact same thing I'm having with mine so you should RMA it, hopefully they'll find the issue with solve it, theres no better way for us to help you without having your computer, hope everything ends up okay.

Sapphire and XFX!

Have any of you guys run heaven on your system with your 6850? I just ran it on mine to compare the results with a friend who has two 5770s crossfire and his results were a lot better than mine and he was saying they should be about the same if not mine should be better.

I can post my results and the settings I ran it with.

EDIT: I just ran it again and I had completely different results, I ran afterburner to make sure it was running full speed this time and it did but I don't know why it wouldn't pf last time. I am still curious to what results other people get.

I could make a safe guess that two 5770s would be better performing than one 6850.
