Vsync-sound crackling with Crossfire

., needless to say from beta 5 all the way to the 13.12 WHQL's that issue has not been fixed. I'll just post this from the hardocp review
"First and foremost, when I installed these cards I used the 13.11 Beta 2 drivers. I skipped Beta 4 during the first few weeks of gaming because I did not want to change midstream while doing 290X testing, but towards the end of the cycle I went ahead and upgraded to Beta 5. Beta 5 drivers gave me terribly "scratchy" audio, so I reverted to Beta 2.
Going through the install notes, I did not see anything that was specific to my setup as being benefited anyway. So my comments here are based on the Beta 2 v13.11 drivers. I actually have not used any of the WHQL drivers with these cards. And on that note, AMD actually seems to be getting back in line with getting betas out in a somewhat timely manner, but still NVIDIA whips the llama's ass on the beta driver front."
from the press notes of Cat 14.1 via MaximumPC
"The Catalyst 14.1 drivers will also include AMD's "phase 2" frame pacing driver it promised last year
. If you recall, the first release of this driver only supported it on one display up to 2560x1600 resolution. It also only worked on DX11 games. Phase 2 broadens support to DX10 and DX11, and allows resolutions higher than 2560x1600, so those of you with 4K panels will appreciate this update."
Lastly go see the black screen
thread here or any tech forum that talks about the 200 series. And witness it was supposed to be fixed in the beta 13.11 beta 4 and5's and 13.12 WHQLS:
