  1. Get the latest one. And make sure you attached everything properly including the CF bridge.
  2. I Already downloaded the latest ccc and still shows nothing to enable crossfire...grrrrr...any other suggestions here?
  3. You only need a single bridge. Also, what cards are you using?

    Also, go check in the hardware manager and check the status of the cards. Vista disable the first card sometime to install the second one. Enable it if it's the case and you should be ready to go.
  4. There's should be a Crossfire™ option at the left navigation side (I think below the Overdrive option).

    and there is no crossfire option on mine underneath the overdrive. So is there a certain version of CCC i should be using let me know.
  7. Please dont tell me you are using this mobo ''Asus M2N SLI Deluxe Mobo''
  8. well just to make sure, what is in your computer (specs)

    i hope for you it isn't the motherboard in your profile (sli board not crossfire board)
  9. Indeed thats what i was thinking aswell,
  10. oh my i never thought about that grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. that is the mother board i am using.
    now what do i do can i sli 2 ati cards or dos it have to be nvidea?
  11. ^ it has to be nvidia as ATi is CF.
  12. Nope you cant, SLI is with nvidia cards, and crossfire for ati

    well you have a few options,

    Sell that mobo and get a crossfire capable mobo (imo the best thing to do, if you want to keep your 2 cards)

    sell both your 4850, and replace em for 2 gts250 or some sort

    Or replace the two for one single gpu solution like the 4850x2 (this is probably the cheapest route, but it means sellling your current two so not the easyst)
  13. well this was actually a test i have a crossfire gigabyte board but i am waitng to get my i 920 cpu.
  14. Wth...

    I'm gonna summon all the plagues in the world and cast it upon you.

    Using a SLI mobo for CF. That's a grave sin dude. :heink:
  16. Yeah you can say i have always been a pretty bad sinner.
