Sigh....used the latest MSI AB. Issue persists. Also, I came to find out why the 'reset' button worked the one time. Apparently, CCC had the defaults as 840, 1280 (my mild overclock) and so it set it properly at that time. When I set CCC back to 800, 1250, I am back to the same 2 issues.
So, I started from scratch. Set everything back to stock. Uninstalled MSI, reinstalled it. Went to CCC made sure clocks are default and overdrive is disabled. Went to MSI, overclocked GPU 1 (synchronized button is checked). Hit apply. GPU 1 still sits at idle but GPU 2 immediately goes to overclocked clocks (840, 1280) with 99% load. Start/Stop Kombustor to bring it back to idle. Restarted comp, BAMB ! GPU 1 is at idle, GPU 2 at 99% load with stock clock !! Ran heaven, GPU 1 runs at overclock, GPU 2 at stock ! I am about had it with this nonsense. I even got a BSOD - not sure why. Just once - did not get it thereafter - maybe my overclock went beyond 840 by accident - dunno. For now, I disabled overclocking - just kept the fan profile.
What sucks is that I bought the two cards to overclock and put them under water. I sold a whole bunch of stuff to get money for all these. And now, I cannot seem to overclock the two cards together....O Gods of Overclocking, cast thy eyes on thine wretched disciple....

EDIT: The Gods of Overclocking showed me a faint ray of hope. I stumbled upon a thread in techpowerup where it says to disable CCC in msconfig. So, gonna try that tonight.

How far are you overclocking?

ULPS disables the powersave feature which drops the clocks on the 2nd card. And, it's not for clocking past CCC limits, that's what unofficial overclocking is for. AB does not play well with ULPS and crossfire. The only reason to use AB is to clock past CCC limits, so are you going further than that? On the other hand you might just flash to 6970 bios and be done with it if yer ram can handle it.

My intent is to go beyond CCC limits. I am just waiting for my watercooling setup. In the mean time, I am just experimenting with a mild overclock to get the juices flowing. Guess I can try disabling ULPS and see what it does. Do you have CCC and AB both running in your setup?

I used AB to hit 1000/1500 just for giggles but then went back to just using CCC and 6970 bios. AB + CFX + 6970 bios = big arse headache. AB has always been a bit of a pain with CFX, it can't even read which card is #1 card to begin with, doh. After the fact, I only use AB for the OSD displaying in game temps, utilization etc etc.

With CCC can you clock the memory below 1375 when using the 6970 bios?

Have you turned off "EnableUlps" in your Registry?

MSI Afterburner doesn't play well with CrossFireX with this enabled.

1. Tried to disable CCC. Did not help
2. Disabled ULPS. Did not help
3. Disabled CCC and ULPS. Did not help

The only way to make OC stick to both GPU is actually to uncheck the sync box and overclock each one separately. But still got the problem of GPU 2 going to 99% load at on a computer start/re-start.

That's what I'm saying! Anyways a trick you can do is set the overclock in AB, then close it. Clocks should stay put game etc shutdown on reboot they should be at low clocks, rinse repeat.

Yep. Since I am going watercool here shortly, I do not have to worry about fan profile. I will have to do something like that.
