-1 rep for anyone else who thinks I was serious about the 6990 replacement.

Okay

Got the 4870x2 in the mail yesterday, supposedly repaired by Asus. They included no info on what they did to it, just sent it back to me in fresh bubble wrap and some static warning stickers.

I put it back in and tried the 11.4's and I get the same problem. My other two pcs have 400 and 450 watt psu's so I can't throw it directly in and test.

Any suggestions?

I guess I could put it in the LGA 775 rig that it used to be paired with and pull power from my psu in the x58 rig. I guess I'd have to pull the mobo power and short that green wire to get the psu going? This would save me from having to pull the 850 watt power supply just to test the card in the old rig.

bty, the center of the three green leds still flashes nonstop. I don't know, but I think asus tested the card but didn't test or care if crossfire was working. The card is working like a 4870, which doesn't cut the cake anymore.

I'm irritated to say the least, and I'm quite disappointed in asus.

I just talked myself out of getting a 580 and bought a 6950 from MSI, but I would like to know whether it's a software glitch or if the card's faulty so that I can sell it as working or not working in good conscience.

Any thought?

If one of the GPUs are dead, then I don't think Crossfire in the ATI panel would work or let you Crossfire them. If you don't have the option or it wont Crossfire then for sure one of the GPUs are dead.

This is what happened. Crossfire was working, I put the computer to sleep, came back, and catalyst then acted as if the second gpu doesn't exist.

It is visible in device manager but not ccc.

Now after uninstalling and installing drivers I have THREE entries in the tray menu for 4870x2. None of which have the option for the crossfire overlay. When it was working properly, I had two entries in the tray menu for 4870x2, and one of them had the option to enalbe the crossfire overlay.

try running folding at home on both cores and see if it fails on one of them. if it fails it could mean you have a bad gpu. especially if they are not overclocked or anything.

Installed folding@home v6 or something(I don't fold so I'm not familiar with the software). It folded on gpu0. It didn't even try to fold on gpu1.

I first tried installing the card in my old rig whilst providing power from my new rigs psu. Everything posted okay, no red leds, but I had no display on the monitor.

I then took a spare hd, put it in my new rig, and installed a fresh copy of 7 on it and installed something like the 10.11 drivers, and it did the same thing as before. See screens.

Tray menu with 3? entries and no crossfire option.



gpu0



gpu1



I tried overclocking and using the built in stability test in ccc on the second gpu. That actually seemed to do something, so I quit the stability test thinking I may have awoken? the gpu, but then the second gpu disappeared from the pull-down menu in the overdrive section of ccc.

I'm going to call asus again(not fun), and ask them how they tested the card. They must have opened it up, paid no attention to my description of the problem of crossfire not working(written on the trouble ticket), booted up windows, maybe ran a game or a stability test on gpu0, and at that point, called it good without ever testing gpu1.

The girl on the phone that I talked to the first time didn't even know what a 4870x2 was, so I wouldn't be suprised if whoever tested my card was oblivious to that fact that the darn card is supposed to run crossfire.

My 6950 is being delivered today, however, and guess who I bought it from... ...not asus.

I called Asus again last night, and actually talked to a knowledgable fellow.

He knew what a 4870x2 was.
He knew what crossfire was.

After telling him about getting the card back and it not being fixed, he agreed with me that the testers simply tested the card but did not verify that both gpus were running.

He emailed a paid fed ex packing slip, and now the card will be going back, but this time it is being mailed to the attention of some guy who is the supervisor of something apparently.

I'm feeling better about this now. We'll see what happens.
