Hello everyone, first post so here we go:

I have an R9 295x2 and have Crossfire enabled in the Global Settings of the Radeon software. However, Crossfire appears disabled in the profiles for my games, examples in the pictures (Rainbow 6 Siege, DBZ Kakarot & Overwatch), and it doesn't let me enable it. I played a match of Overwatch with MSI Afterburner open to see the usage of my GPUs and it appears that while GPU1 reaches 100% use, GPU2 doesn't do anything (although, it had a random peak of 15% for a second apparently, so it looks like the GPU isn't dead). I then ran the Unigine Valley benchmark to see if it makes the 2nd GPU run; when I first installed the benchmark, the 2nd GPU would work, being able to reach 30-40 fps in ultra settings & 4K, but now the 2nd GPU doesn't work and the fps stay below 20. Both GPUs appear in the device manager. If anybody knows what's going on, I'd appreciate an answer, thank you.
