Also, I know that my crossfire is working because my benchmarks increase when I enable crossfire (even though CCC doesn't list my two cards).
Only one would show up in device manager. What made me check in the first place was when I first turned it on (after the first RMA) I got an immediate error message stating there were no drivers for the video card and windows disabled it..... then it was down hill from there. ...Man usually getting a new rig shipped would be cause for celebration, but after all this I'm more scared than excited. ... both time before I booked a day off work to set it up, install stuff, and play around, and both times I just ended up on the phone with NCIX tech until they told me to pack it up and send it back.
