I can say I have never seen a crossfire logo thing. Even on board I've seen people crossfire on. And me looking into it. It said a board has to be SLI certifired to be able to SLI but pretty much any Mobo with 2 pcie slots you can crossfire. Because crossfire has no special needs to work. And for SLI it does.


And I said my Mobo is SLI it's a SLi edition board it's the sli krait edition 

The SLI and Crossfire logos used to appears on almost every motherboard.

These days, only some have them -- there is just not much more free space on the motherboard.


Anyways, according to MSi's website, your motherboard supports both SLI and Crossfire.

There are some boards that don't support Crossfire on a SLI board, just those were Nvidia chipset boards..

Most boards should generally support Crossfire...even the product specs of the board says it's Crossfire.

So, using reverse psychology

uhhh not what you meant i think

PSU Tier List LTT Gender Survey

LTT's self-appointed memelord

Always up for a game of chess

See @STRMfrmXMN @Energycore or @Starelementpoke for PSU needs

See @deXxterlab97 for blue fetishes (if that's your thing)

See @ShadowTechXTS for cats

@Implosivetech's got you covered for all your graphic design needs

And lastly, never put a CX green series PSU in a high end build https://youtu.be/Oybz5Q-If9M?t=7

If you can SLI, you can xf. If you can XF not sure if you can SLI. What do you have? Can you just look up mobo name and see if it's support SLI or not?

Yep, SLI requires certain slots but Crossfire can work on anything SLI can typically.

I would rather agree on what we share, than fight on what we don't. - Myself
