I have some problems with my cross fire, When I launch a game, or anything who can use the second graphic card, this one runs at 99% load, even using Publisher happens the same thing.

It's going me crazy because I've a CF but I can't use it correctly

Hardware:

MotherBoard: Asus CrossHair V Formula Z
Processor: AMD FX 8350
RAM: 8 GB 2400 MHz
Graphics: 2 graphic cards XFX 7870 0 Gb (CF)

Software:

Windows 8.1
AMD Catalyst 14.4 (latest stable version) Driver version 9.14.10
MSI Afterburner 3.0 Beta 19

Please, I need your help

P.D
I've already disabled ULPS (from MSI afterburner application), and it didn't work.

Try putting the cards in different slots, preferably having the cards a greater distance apart, not a hairline distance.

But is that going to change the problem with the load ? I'm going to try, thanks for the advice.

Revert to catalyst 14.3. It seems 14.4 is plagued by the same problem from previous drivers, second card running at 99% with no real use. I reverted mine to 14.3 and my 280x crossfire is working fine now.

In the AMD catalyst web site there is only these drivers:

13.12 12/18/2013
13.9 9/18/2013
13.4 5/29/2013
13.1 1/17/2013
12.10 10/22/2012

As you can see, there isn't a 14.3 version, :(

I downloaded it from here . Shame AMD doesn't keep all their older drivers available for download.
