First off, do you have the card in the bottom PCI-E slot? On that board, the bottom slot is the master.

Also, the little add on card that came the motherboard, the DCCFX-P2 card, you should put that into the top slot so the bottom slot can run at full x16.

Of course you should because if you do not then the gpu you paid good money for would sit in your computer unused.

Yeah, that's probably your problem. The top slot is for the slave card in crossfire.

To double check, it actually says on the board "master" and "slave" above the respective slots.

How did you overclock? Through the BIOS or through a program?

It shouldn't have much to do with the video card, more with your overclock.

Wouldn't use that, I would use the BIOS. No idea if the T-Utility actually works well.
