I got 2 of these bad boyes but ever think somethings not right?

Its my first time owning AMD so im unfamiliar about the setup.

I did a test last night using heaven Heaven Benchmark. The first card's light was red which ment high temperature. I was worried there. The 2nd card's light was yellow.

It says its a 4GB version but I presume heaven don't recognise the card?

It also annoys me that I cant see the 2nd card in CPUID HWmonitor

I was looking in to one of these but did not know if the premium was worth it for the extra 4GM vram.

Do you think I should be getting better with my setup thou?

Also I will try those settings when I get home, thanks.

If you use these settings we have loads of results to compare yours to.
