Update on situation. So, I took out both cards. Cleaned out my PCI-E ports and then switched my gpu positions. And used a different Crossfire bridge. I loaded up crysis 3 and it did let me play for a good while. No crash. Gonna keep gaming and see what happens. Not saying its solved...but the situation isn't as awful. lol Gonna keep gaming and see what happens. if it crashes. I'll load in the newest primary drivers.

Okay, so I think I figured it out. Seems to me that one of my video cards likes to over heat entirely to easily. Originally, I would notice my computer crash out at around 64-66 degrees. I didn't think in a million years my brand spankin new card was crashing out that easy. So, I went through the typical troubleshooting. Finally swapped the positions of my primary and secondary card and found that everything ran smooth as can be. Figured it was a seating issue and everything was cool.
Well, tonight I was messing around with msi afterburning. I found that when I punched the powerlimit to +20%, my cards would work at a much more consistent load. But it also lead to more heat. I didn't think anything of it. I noticed though that when my secondary card hit 64-65 degrees, my computer froze. So, I rebooted, did it again. Same results. Then tested the card by itself(which I did in the past) but decided to really stress it. Soon as it hit 65 degrees. Crash. Just sent gigabyte a RMA request. Boo! But, I think I got the problem figured out.
