    Default 890gpaudh3 + gigabyte hd 6850 help please

    I have been putting together this system peice by peice for a while now.The vid cards where the last addition. I cannot get these cards to work. Everything is fine till I put any kind of load on them( any game). I have flashed the board and the card bios from gigabyte. I have switched the cards around and even just usrd one. I have tried the drivers from amd, gigabyte and older ccc, nothing works - symptoms are when a game loads I get 2 or 3 side by side images with the entire screen also broken into about .25 wids stripes horizontaly. then crash. sometimes goes for a minuet first but never as soon as any load. some times just black screen then crash. all my componants are new and I do not have any problems any time other than attempting to game.heres what I have:
    CM HAF 922 PS: ANTEC TPQ-850W PRIMARY HARD DRIVE: 60 GB CORSAIR FORCE SSD MB: GIGABYTE 890GPA-UD3H Rev 2.0 CPU: PHENOM 2 X4 955 BE GPU: HD6850 X2 MEM: 8 gig CORSAIR 9-9-9-24 1.65V
    I have trouble beleiving I got 2 bad cards at the same time but I am really stuck here. I would really like to get these working plus the place I bought them wants a 15% restock fee.

    does it do this when loading games? or say browsing the net sometimes? do you have google earth? does it crash when using that too? and are the crashes random coloured screens with lines running down them?

    if so then its either the drivers not mature yet or most likely the cards are faulty,my first 5770 did this and i rma'd it for replacement and since then its been 100% reliable with any driver version,i think the memory on the gpu is faulty

    you might have to wait for a bios release to fix t aswell but they should work straght out of the box imo

    Can you please test with only 4GB of memory, and then only 2GB, to see if maybe the memory/voltage settings you are using are not good enough to handle 8GB.

    Thank you all for your responce. I did manage to get a bios update from gigabyte (for the mb) that seems to have fixed the issue. These cards are REALLY nice in crossfire. No complants.

    Nice to hear you got it working finally!

    Can you please upload the BIOS and post a URL here, so we can add to the BIOS thread for anyone else experiencing issues later.

    Thanks
