I've just installed the second Asus 5850 in crossfire setup, got 2x8 pin plugs & 2x 6 pin plugs in so that's ok checked everything 3 times all seems fine till I boot up and after 20-30 secs it crashes.
Anyone got any ideas what i'm doing\got wrong,
my heads blank but that's normal



I'm getting really pee'd off now, I have ripped my rig to bits and still I can't get cards to work in crossfire.
I've run cards on their own rig works no crashes,
both installed no crossfire link cable rig works no crashes,
tried wiping ati drivers with drive sweeper install again crashes,
tried different link cables it crashes,
different PCIe slots xfire link cable in crashes,
Now just reinstalled ati drivers and don't have CCC rig working with both cards in but no xfire cable link, as soon as I connect cards together with link cable it will boot to windows ok but but it either crashes after 30-40 seconds or if xfire not enabled in CCC as soon as I enable it crashes BSOD.
What is going on this is a nightmare.

I have several questions for you.

What is the total output of your computers PSU on all the rails?

Have you tried a different driver in the event the driver is corrupted? Drivers can sometimes become corrupted by downloading them with static or line noise from the Internet.

Does your system have ample amount of cooling taking place? In other words, is there enough air flow into and out of the computer case?
Having those two cards running at the same time certainly can increased the computers inside temperature rather quickly.

try running one of these two programs to check system temperatures for unsafe levels.

Post back if you notice any unusually high temperatures.

Ive actually been having issues with my crossfire setup using the latest drivers as well-have you tried using an older set of drivers?

I think your on to something the_patriot11.

Read of some issues with newer drivers. 10.5 seem`s to be the latest stable version.
