Defective product 02/08/2012
Able to be add another 6870 for tri-crossfire.
The one that was shipped to me did not work. When I first attached this card, I kept getting random crashes in Windows 7 and BSODs. I tried to find out what the problem was, I thought it was drivers perhaps. However, the computer would exhibit the same symptoms in BIOS as well. I would be in BIOS and the screen would randomly turn black and the computer would become unresponsive. I've tried both PCI-E slots in the computer and it still crashes. I have tried other graphics cards and they work fine, it is only this card that has problems. I have also put this 6870x2 in other computers, and the same behavior happens (random crashes and black screens).
My power supply is adequate, it is a 1000 watt Coolermaster. I know that the power supply is plenty as I have powered two 6870s in crossfire before.
I am very disappointed in PowerColor. I have had good experiences with their cards in the past. I have submitted for a RMA with newegg, hopefully the replacement card will be a functioning sample.
