ASUS P9X79 crossfire problems[SOLVED]

My setup

ASUS P9X79 Intel X79 Soket 2011 DDR3 2400MHz (O.C.) SATA 3.0 Usb 3.0

SAPPHIRE R9 290 TRI-X, 4 GB, PCIExp, DDR5, 512 bit, 1000/5200

EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2 1300W 80+ GOLD

Windows 7 64 bit with sp1


So i added one more of the same graphics card. Thought it would be easy like plug n' play but couldn't make it work.


What i've done till now.

-The card is installed and the power is connected, the fans are turning i checked.

-Tried both the cards on the top slot, they work fine alone

-Updated BIOS to the latest version

-Uninstalled and installed graphics card driver with display driver uninstaller

-On the windows device manager or gpu-z second graphics card is not shown


I don't know what i'm missing. I'm pretty sure there must be a setting on the BIOS but the menus are really simple and i couldn't see an option. Tried to change the PCI link speed to GEN1, GEN2, GEN3, nothing happened.


Any ideas?
