Default TriFire Success! Thanks HWC!

Finally after a week (or more, time flys!) I have gotten all three of my sapphire toxic 6950 to unlock, trifire, and be stable!

Swapping out the ax850 to the ax1200 and figuring out how to work around the CCC has turned my rig from fail to win. I also bought a corsair 500r to help with heat buildup. Temps are 70 degrees at max load (bitcoin mining).

Thanks for all the help HWC!

Congrats, so the underpowered PSU was the root of the problem?

Poor little AX850 I hope you keep it as a spare or back up system, and don't sell that wounded soldier.
