Default Quad Crossfire

I'm bored so I decided to pull the 4850 x2 from the HTPC and put it in crossfire witth my 4870 x2 just to see how it performs. BUT my motherboard is a piece of **** and I cant get any video... Any help? Yes I know this is in social lounge not hardware but I was gonna post benches and such if I can get it working.

Its a 1010 watt gamexstream... it should be able to, though I had to use adapters because it has 4 6 pin pci-e plugs and each card needs one 6 pin + one 8 pin

try the cards in the other PC.

i dont wanna say it, but sounds like it could be a mobo problem.
