What are the main (if any) problems of using two different manufactures of HD3870's?

are you saying using them in crossfire? I'm not really sure what your question is but, if you are referring to crossfire there should be no problems using two different manufactures.

If you hook them up together in crossfire your computer will EXPLODE!

Honestly, they will act like they were made by the same company.

Only thing is if you have a standard 3870 and pair it with an OC version, both cards will run at the low(er or est) card's speeds. But you can still OC them both to whatever you want

hi yes, sorry i suppose it was abit vague... i was meaning for them to be in crossfire mode...

what if i overclock the cards separately, then use them in crossfire.. would that get rid of the issue of overclocking crossfire issues?
