Default HAHAHA... not again...!

Anyone know what happens when you crossfire 2 EAH4850 together or 2 darknight 4870...?

I've never had or heard of any type of issue like that.
I have a MAtrix that runs 10 degrees cooler than any GTX260 out there.

It's not because you didn't that it necessary means that you are right. I got a Cosmos S... one of the best gaming case on the market and it still happens. Here the utterly ridiculous thing I have to do to make them work.
