I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction, I have a crossfire system with 3 6950s flashed to 6970 cards in it, and for some reason recently the second and third card stop going into power saving mode. My first GPU is still happily swapping between power saving and high performance, as MSI Afterburner shows the clock speed swapping between 500 and 880.

I'm running CCC 12.3, and my issues started after I tried 12.4, found trifire to be broken then rolled back to 12.3, I've since done driver cleans and reinstalls with no effect, I've tried using MSI Afterburner to force the core speed down to 500 but that has had no effect, I can force it to go up though.

The main problem is that with the bottom two cards running at full speed while my system is idling has increased there idle temps from 40-50 to 60-70, this in turn has increased my main GPU temp from a flat 60 at idle again upwards to 70.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this might have started happening or any way to fix it? I figured I would ask here first before going to AMD with is as I don't have a forum account yet and you guys are fairly knowledgeable.
