Hey man im running crossfire and to be honest i'm having absolutely no problems whatsoever.
There are new drivers that have stability fixes for crossfire that i think you should try.

http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/RC11Driver.aspx

And couple this with 11.12 CAP 3.

Zero issues for me, running like a dream.



ALSO:
I think everybody should use this BIOS. It's the BIOS that is shipped with retail ASUS 7970's, fully unlocked.
Asus.HD7970.3072.111220.zip 41k .zip file

It's the final version of the ASUS OC test beta BIOS and i've flashed both my cards and tested it to work perfectly.
I've settled for a 1200/1650 mhz @ 1187mv, 24/7 overclock on both cards using this BIOS.

Denim,

Is there any way you can do a crysis warhead or metro bench with your cards clocked at 900/1000/1100/1200? I think it will be interesting to see what kind of frames each 100mhz yields.

Im actually gettin my Metro 2033 benchmarking ready at the moment to beat the OCN 1st place position of 126FPS with Quad 580's.
So when i'm done with that ill do the 100mhz bench, 2EZ smile.gif

I didnt try push further than 1250 with the new bios, i actually just used it to settle for a 24/7 overclock.
But i guess its worth a shot for you since it is a more stable version of the BIOS we've been using.

Many thanks! You've been a really big help and have provided a lot of useful information and benches so far. I think the 900/1000/1100/1200 benches will show people what pushing their card at each level will yield.

Good luck beating out #1. These cards are beasts!

He probably used the atiflash tool. It's floating around this forum.
