Not sure what the issue is here I do have an idea so here i go.

Right now I have a 4870x2 and a 4870(512 mb). I been trying to get tri-fire going. For some reason Everest will see all 3 gpus and so does GPU-Z. At this time i can not enable cross fire. I do have the latest drivers. Its not giving me the option to enable in the ATI software.

My system is XP and the mobo a ep45t-extreme. I'm kind of thinking that XP is the issue or it could be the mobo. However i see other people running tri-fire.

Ideas please.

Thanks

Try using an older driver and see if that fixes it. I have had problems before with newer drivers messing up x-fire and or SLI.
