hi all,

im having some troubles with my crossfire situation. im the sept. sbm winner of the 2500 build. finally got a game for xmas (dragonage), and a nice monitor aswell.

anyways i got gpuz up and realized there is only a load on 1 of the 4890s, its cranking at 99% and the others are at 0% (3 4890s btw)

so i believe i have a problem here. any advice?

i am a bit of a noob so please use simple language haha.

Is Crossfire enabled?

Did you connect the CF bridges?

i believe cf is supported. still didnt try another game... stuck at work for another hour.

question tho: could there be a problem with running a 2nd monitor off the primary card causing cf not to work for the game?

What are you getting in GPU-benchmarks such as sysmark, 3D Vantage, etc?

3d mark score was 16626 w/ 2 4890's in cf
w/ 3 in cf it was 19151

so we know its working for the test atleast... (would you like me to run it again w/ 1 card?)

ok folks i figured it out, need to have it running full screen all the time, i have some questions if anyone can answer.

where exactly can i turn off the in game cf icon that i mentioned seeing, can i pop in and out of full screen ot answer IM messages somehow and keep cf running?
