    Make sure that each card is fully seated, front and back.
    It's possible that the card's front metal bracket is slightly misaligned and preventing the card from properly seating.
    Make sure that motherboard components under each card are not interfering with the card.
    When I build a new system, I always clean the motherboard's slots, along with memory contacts and all add in cards.
    I don't clean the cpu socket as it's too easy to bend the socket's pins.

    well if it ran the same cards before then is there an extra plug on that board to help supply power to pcie slots on your new mb ?
    i dont know anything about your psu but no they dont need to be certified but some power supplies are better at the stability of the power and not just reaching the stated wattage
    i know on my psu the rails have different power levels so maybe check the rails
    but it may be a setting on your new board or extra power plug somewhere so dont go spend yet..

    No I wont even attempt to clean the CPU socket lol.
    I have a can of Air that I will use to clean the slot's and other things tomorrow. I think the most likely cause is the connectors being dirty but I will have to get back to you on that cuz I dont think blasting off dust at 4am is to polite hahaha.

    Hmmmm I think I may have something to give a try that might give me an answer to this. But I will have to go through a box of cables which is currently out of hand at the moment. I will have to get back to you later today if its not a problem

    I use a $3 automotive air compressor that I bought at Goodwill to clean out my systems, but definitely not in the early morning hours.

    @ Cliften Bowers are you using the Crossfire bridge? I due belive this is needed, and I think it is needed with nvidia cards also. The system should still see both cards but may not be able to enable crossfire.

    Radeon HD 5570 (single GPU)

    The card requires you to have a 350 Watt power supply unit at minimum if you use it in a mainstream system. That power supply needs to have (in total accumulated) at least 32 Amps available on the +12 volts rails.
    Radeon HD 5570 CrossfireX (dual GPUs)

    A second card requires you to add another 40 Watts. You need a 400+ Watt power supply unit if you use it in a high-end system. That power supply needs to have (in total accumulated) at least 38 Amps available on the +12 volts rails.

    Please add your psu brand/model number to your signature.
    Your old psu might still be OK, I wouldn't rush out an buy a new one just yet.
    Can your borrow another psu to test with?

    I prefer Seasonic made power supplies. I've had three different models, all made by Seasonic:
    • Antec EA-500, original model (made by Seasonic)
    • Antec TP-750 New (made by Seasonic)
    • Seasonic X650, 80 plus Gold rating


    Seasonic also makes power supplies for XFX and some Corsair and Antec models.
    I'm currently using the TP-750 to power my MSI N460GTX Hawk SLI system.
    A 650 watt psu is sufficient for your current setup, but you should use a 750 watt or higher if you're going to upgrade your video cards in the future. You should never run your power supply higher than 80% of its maximum sustained rating for extended periods of time, such as when gaming.

    There are other psu models that are highly rated by JonnyGuru, HardOCP, HardwareSecrets, PCPER, and TechPowerUp. These sites perform exhaustive testing at high temperatures and comment on the component quality. I wouldn't buy a power supply without first checking these sites. There are several other psu models that are highly rated and perform at the same level as the Seasonic made power supplies. Most psu brands have models made by several different OEM suppliers.

    i dont have any experience of crossfire so dont know but i do know that my pc doesnt need an sli bridge and have run 2 cards for years and its running sli flawlessly and can enable and disable and view sli activity

    but thats not an issue really for o.p but just pointing out that some sli's dont need the bridge

    2 5770's aint gonna use much juice anyway,maybe same amount as a single 5870 card,you do need a single xfire bridge(ribbon cable)connected or xfire wont work

    Running without an SLI bridge might work with older cards, but I think that it's required with newer cards.
    I'll perform a quick test this evening with my MSI N460GTX Hawk SLI setup to see if my benchmark scores remain the same with the SLI bridge removed.
