Here is the issue, I had a single R9 290x Reference Card (Sapphire) and I got a good deal on a an MSI 290X Lightning so I bought it and made a crossfire setup.


asus z87 sabertooth

i7 4770k 3.5ghz

32 Gb ram 1333mhz

MSI 290x primary and 290x ref. linked

CM 1000 VPro bronze PSU

couple of HDD and SDD

the only change is updating the drivers, after that games started crashing, I removed the reference card thought might be power/heat/whatever issue. I tried uninstalling drivers and reinstalling shutting down taking the power off and pressing the power button for 10 seconds......the whole thing. I also installed two more fans in pull/push setup directly at the 290x to help cool it but nothing.


anyone facing similar issue? what are my options here


thank you
