Solved PowerColor Radeon HD5770 1GB GDDR5(V3) -CrossFireX Problem Tags: Graphics Cards PowerColor Radeon Graphics Last response: June 15, 2010 4:36 PM in Graphics & Displays Share GarrettWV May 23, 2010 9:06:47 AM Hello, I have purchased two PowerColor AX5770-1GBD5-H Radeon HD5770 1GB GDDR5(V3) PCI Express 2.1 Video Cards with the purpose of setting them up to run in two CrossfireX. There are a lot of different makes of this card, I am talking about the 'V3' made by Powercolor http://www.powercolor.com/us/products_features.asp?id=209 On their website and on the box it clearly states the card supports CrossFireX. Here's the problem: I'm trying to install these on a vanilla Asus P6T motherboard (which also clearly supports Crossfire X and includes a bridge). When I try to place the cards in the correct PCI slots one of the card's cooling fans gets in the way- it's too wide!! The next slot over is too far away for the CrossFireX bridge to reach! They say these cards are made for CrossFire X, my hope is someone can help me make this work? I've stared at them an stared at them and just can't see how I'm missing something, but I hope I am! Otherwise I'm stuck with two cards that I can't use for the purpose I bought them for. :-( Thanks, Garrett More about : powercolor radeon hd5770 1gb gddr5 crossfirex problem Best solution Emerald a b U Graphics card May 23, 2010 2:34:11 PM maybe this will help http://cgi.ebay.com/ATI-Long-CrossFire-Interconnect-Bri...

Thanks Emerald, that looks like it may be my best bet. If I don't hear back from the manufacturer soon (I bet I won't) I will give that a try! From what I'm seeing they are engaged in false advertising, might have to give them a hard time. Thanks again for the help!
