I really like the artifact tester and thats the only real reason I need ATITool, nice near 100% load on the gpu to test for stability & temps. Perfect! but...

I am running gpu-z to see the temps and things and when I drop down to my 2nd card, its at 0% load the tester is only loading on one card....

Anyway to make it work on both, or swap it so that it uses the other card? I do have crossfirex enabled and I am pretty sure its working as I doubt a I could get a 18,500 3dmark06 score with just 1 card.
