Is the CrossFire option enabled in the BIOS?

Did you get this problem fixed? If so, what did you do? I have the same problem with the same board. I am using two HD2600s.

Crossfire should work if:

1. CF bridge is installed
2. Mobo is CF compatible.
3. Cards have same chip
4. GPU Drivers are isntalled.

PS according to my info one of the slots on your mobo is x 16 but second only x4 (2 x PCI-E x16 (blue @ x16 mode, black @ x4 or x1 mode) supports CrossFire). try to lower faster one to x4 and check than.... but anyway its waste of money to run two fast cards on x4 PCIe slots. (x8 is minimum imho)

To get CF working I had to bump my PCIe voltages on my DFI to 100 W.
