    i thought i'd make this thread to those of us who owns/owned a set of ATI cards in crossfire

    so here you can ask and tell about your setup, show off your CF system and ask about any problems,

    come with good ideas etc.

    tell about your overclocking adventures and so on.

    please let me know if there is something i should add here
    :toast:

    bring it on:rockout:

    Drivers can be downloaded here : http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx


    The most popular ATI GPU in here to be CF'ed is the HD 4870.
    we have a total of 16 pairs and more to come i hope
    :D
    [​IMG]
    The platform mainly used for CF is the AMD 790FX, Second is Intel X58


    If you wanna use a dedicated Nvidia card for PhysX then take a look at brandonwh64's thread right here How to activate PhysX

    so here is my 5770 CF setup,

    they run at 960 on the core and 1375 on the memory 24/7

    i might add a 3rd 5770 just for the fun of it,

    Currently running 4890's, can't find pics of my 3870's ATM...nor of the 3870x2's...or X850's...I've had every high-end pair of cards that have been on the market.

    results in nasty flickering, horizontal lines that shift up and down vertically. only fix from AMD is to turn Vsync on... and guess what happens when games dont like vsync? (deadspace, RE5, etc)

    only fix is vsync on, crossfire off, or an AMD chipset mobo. (or, x58/p55 supposedly is fine with HD5k cards)

    2x5850's in CrossFire! This CrossFire setup puts all previous CrossFire setups I've used to waste. Not just in terms of performance, but how well they scale and how well they just work.

    this is weird, i cant find that card on sapphires homepage? guess its just with the reference cooler then, really really hope to get the vapor-x version

    you're in man! that is one nice setup, wish i had the money for it, traded a old 4850 512mb + 100$ for that sapphire card and my budget is streched to the max already, need a new dvd drive.

    You can throw me in the mix Don. I'm runnin a Sapphire Toxic & HIS 3870. I'm gonna probly look at a couple coolers for them soon. Although the Toxic stays very very cool compared to the HIS, so I may just look at a couple blocks if I ever decide to go back to water.
