all right this is going to be our follow-up video to the installation of 279 7tms in am 18 XR 1 so we'll start by installing the secondary card before you guys do this make sure that you have proper ESD grounding and are using the right tools for the job in this case a small phillips screwdriver some thermal paste and you may need a small flat screwdriver for disassembling when you're getting ready to put the second
00:41
card in the system you'll need to make sure that the crossfire cable is properly connected to the card prior to installing it you won't have room if you wait till after note that there's a small arrow on the top of the crossfire connector it may be difficult to see in the video it's important that this arrow is facing towards you when you install it if you install it the other way around you risk damaging your card and your crossfire will not work so when

inserting a pardon to the system insert it at an angle press down and then allow the card flat it's secured by two screws once the cards been secured take your heatsink ensure that thermal padding is in the proper positions for the cards it's helpful if you make sure that everything makes good contact ahead of time so we already have so well after you've checked your heatsink you need a
02:01
small line of thermal paste we recommend and use icy diamond 7 and this is included in the upgrade kits that you purchase from us don't my paste on we'll go and put the heat sink into position give a gentle press to spread the thermal paste around and then begin to secure the heatsink you have to make sure that the heatsink is properly lined up with the GPU spreader to ensure that
02:36
you'll get screens in position properly so the secondary cards installed read your crossfire cable through the system and prepare to install so this installs the same way go into the spot and press down and that would be secured by the space you take your primary heat sink now depending on the configuration you
03:54
initially purchased you may have a 75 or 100 watt heat sink in this case our system came initially with the 75 watt card so that meant that our heat sink needed to get modified in order to fit the profile of the 7970 you can see here underneath the thermal pad that we've ground away a small piece of the metal that was preventing the card from making proper contact it's very important that all of the major components on the card get proper thermal padding and that the GPU dye makes a full contact with the
04:26
copper plate this doesn't happen you can risk overheating which can shorten the lifespan of your card so now that it's been properly modified we'll apply the thermal paste too much and you have inefficient heat transfer too little you don't have enough heat transfer in place just drops in and then same as before
04:57
using small silver screws just take your crossfire cable ensure that the error side is facing up and connected to your primary card I've been connected and sure that it's flat out of the way of any other connectors where it can catch or pinch and then you're set to start reassembling the system so after the
05:43
card is installed alright let's put the top put the top case back into position reconnect all the cables this is very important for your system to work properly and ensure that you're not catching the edge of your crossfire cable on the secondary card when you go and put the power button cable back into its socket your next step will be doing stalling keyboards so you have your secondary macro keys which have two connectors one
06:43
for backlight and one for the actual input these latches lift up then once the cables in position down is normally retained by screws along the top however we are in this machine so often that way when we using the screws together
07:19
keyboard same principle cables to install the display once again to sockets for that you may have to bend the screen forward a little bit to get it in correctly take Carolyn wrote in your display in web cam cable channel for it it connects their webcam cable runs along the same path
08:34
and connect over by the macro keys the Wi-Fi cables loop all the entire together and they slide through to the bottom of the Machine connect goes out there one sweet let's take care of the display this place held down by long space both on the top and the bottom
09:56
in secured the top control panel down the notebook over Wi-Fi tables back to here you can connect them to the card however we don't again because we're not using the Wi-Fi one we're doing these tests ospa not least bottom panel goes
11:00
on slides towards front of the system and then finally battery locks in and you're ready to go we'll get our power connected and we'll show you how it works so we're currently using a 240 watt AC adapter as the 79 seventies our hundred watt cards this will be
11:36
insufficient to power them under full load we're gonna hold off doing any full load benchmarks until our 330 watt adapter arrives but in the meantime this will show you that the cards do indeed detecting crossfire the powerup system so we're going to get a warning at the start telling us that indeed we do have a 240 watt AC adapter and they do recommend a 331 adapter for dual card configurations they also give
12:09
us the option to ignore it well and we will start our Windows 7 installation so if we go to computer right click and go to manage once the system fully boots up it'll bring us to computer management we'll go to our device manager the tool list that we have to Radeon HD 7970 s we will also
13:23
go to our catalyst control center and confirm that they are indeed running in crossfire we've changed to advanced view under performance in crossfire Andy crossfire is enabled so as soon as that power supply comes in we'll update this video with some benchmarks and you'll see how fantastic these cards truly are thanks for watching you
