Hi there, new member here.

Lately, I am having a display issue when I try to play games on my system. I end up with a weird, matrix-y looking greenish tinge that goes vertically across the whole screen. This isn't happening on the desktop or surfing the web or watching youtube videos, it only happens when I play Skyrim or Borderlands 2 (the only games I play). I do have a number of mods on Skyrim but Borderlands is just the base Game of the Year edition.

For the record my system is an ASUS ROG motherboard, AMD phenom X II 1100 T processor and 2x Radeon HD 6970's (EAH6970 DCII/2DI4S/2GD5) in crossfire. I haven't had any issues in the year and a half that I've owned my system, and this has only started happening recently, about 2 weeks ago. It doesn't happen all the time but it seems to be occuring more frequently so I'm starting to worry.

Any help would be appreciated.

Have you done any troubleshooting...say starting with just using one card, reading TFM on Voltage Tweak for those cards, *monitoring ALL temps*, adjusting gpu core and memory clocks, changing drivers, looking in the BIOS to see what your RAM settings are, updating the BIOS in mobo or determining if you have enough powersupply to run 2 375w (ASUS spec) cards properly?  etc??

Is EVERY component in your build absolutely dust free and clean?

Thanks for the quick reply.

The only one of those that I haven't done is check the bios. Like I said, the system has been up and running for a year and a half and I have not encountered any problems previously. 

What would I be looking for in the BIOS?

You know...those "BIOS things" that can affect performance...voltages, RAM settings (have had them change...on their own...muhahaha!)...*temps*...mobo, case, cpu, gpu...

You have UPDATED THE BIOS...good.

In Crossfire...you have manually set the fan speeds on your gpus...GOOD.

Your 1100 uses 250w under heavy load (cooling method?)...almost a million watts for both of your 6970s...you got enough PSU??  Is it perfectly dust-free clean??

Dirt, dust, dirty stuff, dusty stuff, dirty, dusty stuff, dusty, dirty stuff...heat.
