    Yesterday got my second 5850. For now working in 16x8x mode(as EVGA E760 mobo have 16x8x16x8x so use 16x8x since i don't have longer CF bridge xD). After i install 10.3 drives i got some issues like:
    - In GPU-Z i see 2 GPU, all fine, but temperatures was bugged(showed like 1500+ *C), and Load always 0.
    I reinstall drivers and didn't install CF Profiles(i think thats was the issue)

    - Than i reinstall drivers again trying to solve that issue and noticed new one. CCC shows second GPU like inactive. Clocks are always 000Mhz, load 0%.

    I don't even saying about BFBC2 flickering xD

    Any idea wth is that?

    P.S I reinstall drivers correctly,followed techpowerup guides...:banghead:

    They better. NO user should have to make registry hacks to have proper function of a card. ULPS doesn't fix my problems either, nor is it the cause.

    no more crossfire for me.

    Took ATI forever to fix the frame drop after map change in L4D2 and now flickering in BC2.

    Taking care of that 2% of the market that has crossfire is just not a priority for them.

    10.3b drivers fix crossfire flickering (bad textures) in bad company 2.


    If you're getting the horizontal lines flickering, use D3Doverrider (comes with rivatuner) and force Vsync + triple buffering on

    dezmen, uninstall, safe mode driver sweeper, clean all drivers restart into normal, reinstall 10.3b ati drivers. dont overclock. should work and your second crossfire card will show lower load so save wattage will kick up once a 3d application is active

    I think he maybe talking about the shadow flicker. I know the 10.3b drivers didn't fix this on my 4870x2.
