Just got these two cards all set up in my machine and now im having some issues with getting them to work in-game. I mainly play SWTOR and Battlefield 3, but neither of these games are really pushing my second card to the limits. I am using multiple hardware monitors (CCC, MSI Afterburner, and GPU-z) to see the temps and core usage. Card 1 is at 100% and Card 2 usually sits at 0 but might jump up to 14% every minute or so. Im still getting poor performance on max graphics on both games. From what I have read, both games should utilize crossfire, with the latest drivers and profiles. I can't seem to fix this issue.
I just switched the two cards (5750 now on top) and the 5770 is showing 0%. Since im running at 4x on one card does that explain why whatever card on the second slot isnt even ramping up in any of my games?
Correct. BUT, I just switched them back and clocked the 5750 UP to the 5770, making the benchmark crash. So no im tweaking the clocks to get the best performance. I figured that I better have the better card as the main one so that when I play a game that isn't CF supported that im getting the best performance.
