Default CrossFire installation

I have just performed my first major upgrade mainly for gaming. I have i7 950CPU, ASUS rampage extreme Motherboard, and two HIS 6850 graphics cards. I have installed the cards in the 1st and 3 rd slots, the cards are too thick to use the first 2 slots. I am using the crossfire cable supplied with the motherboard as the one supplied with the video cards is to short. How can I tell if the crossfire setup is working. I have run the catalyst control center program and when I open the crossfire X window only 1 video card is listed, and when I click on the identify GPU the number one is displayed.

Any help appreciated.

Default Re: CrossFire installation

Both cards must have power supplied to them. The power supply must be big enough to power both cards.

Un-install the video driver and then re-install the driver. When you re-install the driver it should see both cards and install the driver for both of them.
