I've flashed the card - since then I've not experienced any freezes while playing a game. I did however get two BSODs (previously mentioned) and a Display driver restarted (Windows message) while watching Youtube.

I changed the slot the card was in and not yet experienced any more issues, but I've only played for about 5 hours, broken into 180 minutes of Skyrim, 50 minutes of BF3 and quite a few short sessions of various games.

Rofl, you had the exact same experience I did. Try everything on earth, and random game/youtube BSODs don't go away. Solution: switch the cards, and lock the demon in the 2nd slot of your system.

Funny, both of us have barts (68x0) GPUs in crossfire... I wonder if this is a coincidence, or if anyone else had this problem.

Well in my case, I'm still using just one card. I've not yet tried putting the more suspicious card back into the system and I'm putting the 1st (less suspicious) card in the 2nd slot, leaving the 1st slot (nearest the CPU slot) empty.

Sounds like what i suspected was wrong with my rig: an iffy pci-e slot.

Is there any way you could get old video card to test?

EDIT: Also, you have 6970s. Sorry, forgot about earlier posts.

Could be. I think it might've been a mixture of things.

When I started using only one GPU, crashing/BSODs decreased.

When I flashed the motherboard BIOS, crashing/BSODs decreased.

When I changed to old drivers and flashed the GPU crashing stopped (so far at least) - not sure which was responsible.

When I changed the GPU 1 into PCI-E slot 2, BSODs (so far) stopped - or at least I hope so.

--

If it holds up with no more BSODs for a long time, I'll switch the card positions again to see if I get BSODs to confirm that's it. Then I'll test GPU 2 in PCI-E slot 2 - see what happens, then flash the GPU if crashes/BSODs happen.

Unfortunately all my PC stuff, including spare old stuff for testing and my PC-savvy friends who'd have similar stuff are back home in England.

If the problem is the motherboard PCI-E slot 1 and it turns out that both cards work, not sure if I should replace the motherboard (being the problem) or get a new single-GPU (Radeon HD 7850 2GB perhaps). The one card I'm currently using (a HD 6870 - thread title was a typo) is holding up but barely for some games.
