the monitoring thing you shut down, its non AMDAPC is it?
I thought that at first, but sync is disabled. 290x is 1030/1250 and 290 is 977/1250
I forgot I have already had a 290 replaced with manufacture they sent me a 290x for replacement..
I think the short name is MOM.exe Its call Cat control centre Monitoring.
going to play some battlefield 4 and see how I get on..
thats the event service for CCC
Would that in anyway conflict with say MSI afterburner??
Just played game BF4 FireStorm 1440p max settings with no AA and it ran for the most part very good.. No noticeable GPU/CPU spikes.
It has to be that service, I dont want to enable it again lol
Frame rate was up and down sometimes low has 60fps, I guess this is because I pushing 1440p
Stock i7 2600k and stock GPUs.. i7 would be having hard time you would think? AB shows CPU usage between 80 and 60%
Managed to play more today and its back again can not play more than couple mins with Crossfire enabled.
This doing my head in.
Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered.
0x100000ea THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER dxgkrnl.sys
i still think is a slot issue.
did you try a single card in each slot?
I didn't sorry not had time..
I had a similar issue with amd driver and BF4 going to black screen like loss of video signal and the only way to recover was two reboots. I resolved the issue by manually forcing fans to 100% and slightly reducing core and memory clock speeds on both cards. After trial and error, found the right speed that never caused the issue again. Can play for constant hours and no issue.
I don't use Crossfire for BF4 because FPS is lower than a single card. I have two 280x OC cards.
sorry if this has been asked but what are your vrm temps like? the msi 280x has terrible vrm cooling so if the 290/x is the same with 3 cards the space is even more restricted and causing overheat and then bsod or driver error
Something seriously wrong with your setup then. My 2 x 7970 scale well in crossfire BF4.
There is nothing complex to set-up with Crossfire. It works perfect with other games (better than a single card) and not with BF4 for me (does not matter if its DX or Mantle).
I'm with the guy who said that it is 99% a motherboard/slot problem. Try your primary card alone, in the secondary slot. And not for a half hour either, try it for a day or so.
If everything is ok there, then check and if possible change your crossfire bridge.
Lastly, what motherboard model do you have exactly?
290 series don't use crossfire bridge..
So for am thinking its a motherboard issue, thinking something to do with PLX Chipset.
Motherboard is Asus P8z77 WS
Probably you've done that already, but make sure OverDrive is disabled in CCC (untick "Use Graphics OverDrive" box if ticked).
There's also a system service called "AMD External Events Utility" which IIRC starts the monitoring process for CCC.
Try disabling that service and see if it makes a difference.
EDIT: do note that, even if you kill the process manually, entering CCC will restart it if the service is still running.
I think the issue is how the ASUS P8z77 WS handles the PCIe lanes..
I bought this board fors its labled flexablity 16x dual etc but it turns out when running dual config you should install in PCIe 1 and 2 this will then be 8x 8x and not good for air flow.
Now my question is, can I change this in anyway within Windows? or is this a hardware problem?
The only possible way for you to do this is with slots 1 and 2. Every other slot shares with slot 1, and it will cause problems. If you have problems with your airflow, install fans to blow directly between the cards. There is nothing you can do about the assignment of PCIe lanes from the motherboard through software.
This the last time I buy an Asus MB I tell you.. They advertise this as a dual 16x even JAYJay on Youtube in his Video point at you using the blue slots for Dual setup.
I dont understand why they set it up like that.. Did they not once think about air flow..
Ok enough of Rant!
What about a PCIe extender from slot under pcie1?
Has you can see here if I was to use one and two the both GPUs would be so close.
Try using x16 slots 2 and 4 (the black ones).
