    4870x2 CrossfireX screen gets screwed up then game crashes.

    Well I've tried both FEAR 2 and Crysis. After taking both cards out and blowing the dust out of them, and reinstalling them, I haven't had any more issues yet. It may have been a heat related issue after all.

    4870x2 CrossfireX screen gets screwed up then game crashes.

    Well I know for a fact that the top card is fine because with crossfire disabled I have no issues. I'm going to try swapping the bottom card in for the top one, and take the other one out to see if that card has any issues in a bit.

    4870x2 CrossfireX screen gets screwed up then game crashes.

    Cards seem to stay below 90c at all times.

    Doubting it. I think it's probably one of my cards.

    4870x2 CrossfireX screen gets screwed up then game crashes.

    I have two 4870x2 cards and am running them in crossfire. With crossfire enabled whenever I run a game, about ten minutes in the game will freeze, and the screen will get all messed up with weird colors and lines going through it. Then I have to hard restart the computer. What could possibly be...

    So I just blew up a power supply...

    It did actually shut down, but when I went to turn it back on, it blew up. :P Also I doubt the Cooler Master is still under warranty.

    So I just blew up a power supply...

    Apparently an 850w Cooler Master PSU is not enough to run 2 4870x2s in crossfire, an I7 920, and one hard drive. After 3 minutes of Furmark the thing exploded. The reason I was even running it on that PSU, is because something is wrong with my 1200w silverstone. I can't even run furmark for 5...

    Sound card DAC or reciever DAC?

    I am mainly concerned about music. I don't really care as much about the gaming side of the XFI card. There is no resampling being done when it's getting sent to my receiver, because I have kernel streaming turned on, so it sends it exactly bit for bit. I'm still going to keep the XFI card and...

    Sound card DAC or reciever DAC?

    I have a $60 XFI Xtrememusic sound card. I have a $350 Denon-AVR688 home theater receiver that I am going to be using for all my music I'm playing through the computer. Would it be better to connect it via analog (RCA plugs?) which would be using the DAC on my XFI card, or would it be best to...

    Is this a normal 3dm06 score for 2 4870x2s?

    I just ran 3dmark06 with only one 4870x2 and it scored 17,806. not much of a jump with using 4GPUs. Do I have something set up wrong? Or is 3dmark06 just a bad benchmark for 4 gpus? I heard 4 gpu crossfire only works on an old version of the catalyst drivers, is this true?

    Is this a normal 3dm06 score for 2 4870x2s?

    NO OVERCLOCK whatsoever on ram, cpu, etc. All stock. I7 920 cpu, 3 gigs of ram. 3dmark06 score was 18,736. Is this low?

    TWO 4870x2's. (4 gpus) Can i crossfire on XP64?

    I may have to just end up installing vista, but I've just been hearing that ATI crossfireX does not work on xp at all. (4 gpus) I just wanted to confirm if this is actually true or not? I just don't like the idea of an fps loss going from xp to vista which I see in most articles. I'm running 3...

    TWO 4870x2's. (4 gpus) Can i crossfire on XP64?

    I have two 4870x2 cards. Can I use xp 64 bit to crossfire these, or will I be forced to install vista?

    Voltage - How much is too much if your temps are fine?

    I am getting a water cooling setup for my E6750 soon, and I was wondering, as long as the temps are fine, how much voltage is safe? I can push it over 4ghz at about 1.56v, could probably maybe go farther (waiting on my WC setup to get here) how much voltage is "unsafe"?
