5850 Crossfire issue

Hello all,

I've just installed 2 5850's into an eVga x58 board. I am really not sure if my crossfire setup is working properly. I've connected the bridges properly. The device manager shows 2 cards properly. However in CCC I only see a single card in all dropdowns. However Crossfire tab is visible and I can enable/disable crossfire. Also in graphics hardware section I can see that second adapter is linked. Let me give you an example to be more specific. If I go to ATI Overdrive there is only a single card in the dropdown. By the way all overdrive options are disabled. Please tell me what's wrong.

Thanks,

Yenal

I don't mean to state the obvious, but have you connected another 2x PCie power cables from your PSU? By the way what PSU are you using? 2X 5850's take some power . . . :??:
