All CAPS are only need the latest one. When these optimizations became standard for AMD, the forum was told by a AMD employee that it was best to delete the old CAP before installing the new.

If you have a beta driver installed (like 13.2 at the moment) you don't even have to install external caps as they are way too outdated, the in-built caps in the driver are more recent.
