Windows 7: Crossfire questions

Crossfire questions

ive got a couple of question about crossfire seen as its the first time ive used 2 gpus.
do you just install the ccc with both gpu's in crossfire because someone told me i had to install them 1 by 1?

i cap my fps to 60fps
and usually my single gpu now can handle most games at steady 60fps obviosly some drops .
when in crossfire will they like share the workload on less demanding games

resulting in less temperatue?
there a plenty of room between the 2 pci 2.0 x16 slots
and a good airflow in my case

You can install both cards and then install the Catalyst driver package. CCC will detect both cards and detect that they are crossfired.
