I just today crossfired 2 r9 280x's from XFX and went to boot up warframe to play a match or 2... within 5 minutes i got a beeping from my computer... i shut down my game realy fast and saw that my upper card was having 45% usage and 50 degrees celcius and my seccond GPU was sitting at 99% usage and 65 degrees on my GPU temp program... so i let them cool down and tried again... same thing happened... i went to file a support ticket to XFX about this and just loading the browser while having my teamspeak 2nd monitor on and skype open brought my GPU usage on my 2nd graphics card up to 99% and the temperature to 60 celcius... am i doing something wrong? or is this a defective card?... it only arrived today... the reason i bought it was XFX offers a lifetime warranty
I'm going to remove the 2nd card for now untill i get a reply from XFX support but i've posted here incase anyone else has helpfull tips on something i can try. the version of card i have is the TDBD ( black edition slightly factory overclocked on newegg.ca.) my case is teh CM storm trooper, motherboard is the ASUS crosshair V formula Z, 32 gigs ram
and AMD FX-9370 vishera cpu.
