Trixx would be perfectly fine to use, and yes it can disable ULPS. Just check "disable ULPS" under settings and reboot. (Make sure "load on Windows startup" is checked too.)
In fact, for Crossfire it is *preferred* over Afterburner since it can actually adjust each card's clock independently through a drop down menu. By default, it also allows for +200mv whereas Afterburner only allows +100mv without hacking the Afterburner files.
To adjust clocks independently using Trixx, make sure "Synchronize cards in Multi-GPU Config" is unchecked
under settings, then use the dropdown menu in the top left corner of Trixx to change between cards. You can set the clocks and voltage differently this way. This is useful for benching if one card can't clock as high as the other stably. So, if one card does 1200mhz but the other one can't (you get black screens or bad artifacts with them both at 1200mhz, using Afterburner for example), try setting the weaker card to a lower frequency this way.
Enjoy your PCS+. Hope you have room for it. (It's nearly a 3 slot card.)
