I'm sure this has been brought up a million times but just in case I'm missing something I figured I'd post.System specsMainboard - Asus M5A97 (first release, current bios)Processor - AMD FX-8120Video - (2) ASUS HD7870-DC2-2GD5-V2PSU - Corsair HX850Ram - 16GB Corsair (4) 2GB PC3-12800 RamHDs - (1) Intel 335 120GB SSD(2) WD 500GB sata 3 drives(1) WD 1TB sata 3 driveCase - NZXT Phantom 630 with 6 fans installedOS, Win 8, all patches applied.The machine boots up fine with one card installed.With two cards installed it hangs up shortly after the log-in screen comes up. I removed the drivers and it will boot up fine, but when I go to install the latest catalyst drivers it freezes and the screen goes black about halfway though the "graphics driver install". I installed the 13.4 drivers with one card installed and the system works fine, but when I connect the second card and try to boot the system, it goes to a black screen and hangs right after the log-on screen comes up. Running out of ideas... and patence.....

Many people reported CF issues in the last few months. I suggest you look around in the CF section and ask around which older driver version people suggest.
