    We can get CrossX to work in Skyrim by pressing ALT-TAB in and out in the game. Work ok for me, I get over 90% usage on both GPU's according to GPU-Z. Give it a try.:)

    In case anyone is wondering. The thermal pad thickness needed for the ram chips are 1mm.

    I need help from a couple members here, I performed a complete repaste of my graphic card (Not just GPU die), but I have lost my data and screen shot of temperature from before the change :eek: . If you can take 10 minute of your time by doing a Stress Test under OCCT 4.0 GPU 3D Burn Test and post your screen shot from HWiNFO here, I will very appreciate ;) .

    Here's a link for OCCT 4.0 Download - OCCT Website .

    You need to choose this Setting. Put your lappy on desk, with Fan turn on at 100%.

    In case you somehow missed it, the DimScreen app that SOS4DELL told us about works excellent with the AMD cards even without the driver support. I don't need with my NVIDIA powered M18x, but still use it because it's a nifty app. If you have not tried it yet, you may want to.

    So I just received my new m18x with dual 6990s the other day and when running benchmark tests i noticed one GPU is hotter than the other. I figure a few degrees isnt much but its about 10*c difference. I then ran GPU-Z which is showing the fan is pretty much stuck at idle and is not revving up. Is their a fix or do i need to replace the fan or whatever else has to be replaced. i have already gone ahead with contacting my technician i deal with and awaiting his response.

    Thanks ahead guys
