halp crossifre cs:source graphics corruption

Postby Relic » Jun 5th, 2008 at 9:50 am

Here's the inside of my rig:



I upgraded my proc and mobo and now I have this when I try to play:



I've tried everything in regards to tweaking crossfire settings via catalyst control center.
I've reinstalled the drivers
I've switched the cards back and forth from primary to slave.
I've adjusted memory frequency and voltages on the cards.
I've tried settings to lowest quality.
I've tried different cpu.

I havent tried the 3 lbs sledgehammer but am getting close.

If no one has a better solution it appears that I will have to disable crossfire before playing cs:source. It runs fine when not in crossfire mode. Requires a restart which sucks but its a solution.

Thanks for any help/suggestions other than not haing crossfire :P

A few questions:

Did you change PSU's? Moreover, whats the wattage?
Is the crossfire set-up new(did you just strat running in crossfire?)
Have you tried playing without using both at once?

If it goes ok with just one in, its more than likely one card is fucked.
Honestly, it looks like one of the cards isn't getting enough power. Monica had that happen the first time she turned on hers when we built it, had to get an RMA for the card and buy a more powerful PSU.

I know exactly how to fix this. take out one of the GPUs, run on one and send the spare to me. Problem solved.
