Hi all.

I have been having a recurring problem of my PC locking up, with a pink tint to the screen. I have to hard reset.
I have tried everything I can think of including:-
swapping GPU's, swapping memory, running at stock, updated all drivers, formatted and re install, different AMD driver/CAP combo's............ 
system has passed memtest86+ (2 passes) and Prime95 (2 hours) and also tested each HDD. Graphics cards have been burned in using kombuster DX11 @ fullscreen for 30 minutes. 
It only appears to happen in Battlefield 3 but I haven't played any other game long enough to really test.
I'm almost certain it's crossfire/software related as if I play windowed or disable a card it has yet to happen, although as above, haven't really played long enough to test.
I would appreciate your valuable knowledge. Especially if you have seen this crash first hand.
