yes thats what I was having in mind, should I go with the GHZ edition BIOS and leave it that way? or flash it with the XFX black edition at 1000Mhz Core

I need a tutorial to flash the BIOS, I never did this. except on my Geforce 3

I am also having this issue as well.

Asus RIVE
3960x @ 4.5 ghz
Corsair ax1200 PSU
16gb ram
Trifire MSI 7970 reference cards flashed with ghz bios bios
3 asus 27" monitors (2 connected by mini displayport to displayport cable) (1 connected by DVI)

Single monitor + crossfire = no crash
Eyefinty+crossfire = crash
Single card + eyefinity = no crash

I have tried running system at default settings and all the stuff you have done and then some. I have tested each card solo. I have borrowed a friend msi lighting to pair with each card. I tried quadfire. The end result is crossfire + eyefinty for some reason = crash drivers later then 12.6.

There is a post He[=http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1708626][/]re detailing the issues some of us have.

I think it has to be a driver issue with how they use the PCIE bus as a work around for the crossfire bridges bandwidth limitations. It seems running resolutions over 2560x1600 is when the problems start when using the drivers 12.6-12.8 and crossfire + eyefinty. Who knows but stuff was working with release drivers then they broke something.

I'm actually having the problem on RC 11 now. I honestly don't know why.
RC 11 and 12.7 CAP 3

I also tried everything, I am about to flash the BIOS of all four cards to the XFX Black Edition One.

EDIT: Do you think is has something to do with the 15 AMP house breaker. My whole setup is on a single 15 amp breaker, but my whole setup is at stock.

I tried the ghz bios as a possible fix. I would like to find a asus 7970 bios to try. Let me know if you get any different results with that bios.

No most descent power supplies have under/over voltage and current protection in some shape or form.

I have a feeling we are going to have to wait for a fix in a driver. I would fill out a trouble report at amd website. Detail as much info as you can. I filled out a few of them.

This is so bizarre. You guys are having the issues we had 3 months ago. The drivers have pretty much got cfx + eyefinity down now. headscratch.gif

I have not had afterburner running or installed when crashes occured. Prior to flashing the cards to the ghz bios I was getting a black screen + 100% fan unresponsive system. After the bios update it is a screen freeze with some crashes a sound loop/buzz. It has never issued a blue screen. Nothing in minidump folder.

I did a clean install prior to testing this weekend to rule out drivers being corrupted or uninstalled. Starting with release drivers stuff was working but performance was crap and had a few other annoyances the 12.8 work well performance wise minus the retarded crashes.

Have you tried lowering the resolution in eyefinity? Down to 1080 or 1200 to rule out possible adapters issues.
