Stating the fact that the thread clearly, if read, at all, has nothing to do with overclocking but is an application problem, yet it was moved to a forum which it has nothing to do with, instead of where it should've been moved, is a problem?  I happen to moderate a forum myself & have for years, it's not that hard to do the job correct.  That's really neither here nor there as to my question I asked previously, but whatever.  I've figured out how to "avoid" this issue from surfacing, hopefully the maker of Afterburner is aware of it & will fix it in newer patches as it seems less prevalent but still around in 3.0.1

my first question is do you use any sotware that actually say's on the box that crossfire must be installed?

if the answer is no then installing the overthe top jumper and inableing crossfire may not be needed.

some motherboard do not have crossfire wiring and some do the wiring badly

that is why the cards come with an over the top jumper.

your card does not need the jumper for up to 4 gpu's

i was unable to determan how many gpu's are on this card .

many high end games can use both card's wether ciossfire is inabled or not so if you are having probles with it doen't use it  if you don't need it.

Uuuuh... this thread is really old, and it was determined that this was an Afterburner-based issue despite dillweed there having the thread moved to the wrong section.

There is no "jumper" or whatever you speak of an the Asus RoG Rampage IV Extreme, it was designed to natively support 4-Way Crossfire & 4-Way SLi.  R9 290Xs do not need any sort of bridge or other "help" running crossfire, they just do it once the drivers are installed with more than one card present.

I'm aware you can disable the cards you don't need if a program doesn't scale well with Crossfire/TriFire/QuadFire, that wasn't the issue, nor were the drivers.
