So you want people to test these for you? You can't do it yourself?

Yes it does indeed work. But it still doesn't solve my crossfire issues.

The flickering in Crysis 2 was also an issue on Crysis 1 and neither Nvidia or ATI was able to solve it then so I highly doubt they will be able to solve it now. Ironic that the games that probably benefits from SLI/Crossfire the most are Crysis 1/2 yet crytek has been unable to provide proper multi GPU support.

Just played it. Game flickering was present, but not as extreme. New problem arose though, and lighting/shadows are spotty (which is even worse than the flickering). It's hard to explain, but it just looks god awful.

Edit:

Well, deciding to 'lower' the settings of the game, I delete my autoexec.bat file that I was using to increase ingame settings. When I did this, the game no longer flickered, and in crossfire my FPS went from 50-60fps to 80-90fps. This was quite an improvement!
