So, I'm curious about Crossfire.  I've downloaded GPU-Z and CPU-Z to examine information.  I noticed that on CPU-Z when it gave me information about my video cards that it said one had a Core Clock of 859 MHz and Memory Clock of 1200 MHz while the other video card had a Core Clock of 156 MHz and Memory Core of 300 MHz.  


My question is that these numbers are abnormal?  If it is, what would be the solution or start of a solution?

No, it's normal .. The solution would be just a question of using the forum's search engine to it's advantage and reading the other several million posts about POWERPLAY ..

It's normal while idle, but not while in a fullscreen game.  Since CF doesn't work in windowed mode, you need to either log to file with GPU-Z, or have it running on a second monitor, in order to see what the values are while in the game.
