      here is my minidump link





      from what others have help me with on other forums but were unable to fix the problem they said the dumpfiles were linked to the CCC 15.7.1 drivers so idk if it is a bug in the driver or what but when crossfire does work for like 20 or so mins my fps in games are amazing so i really want to use crossfire but hate to take it out

          some motherboards have crossfire built into the pci bus though there have been problems with some of these. the other way to do crossfire is to use 2 over the top flex cables these also can and do go bad when I had a set go bad it caused a herringbone pattern on my video and killed my frame rate.

          after taking the cables out, I found that on the games I played did not need the cables to run well.

          if you must have crossfire to make your games work right try replacing the flexes first though you may find that removing the flexes is all that is required.
