    I tried to do a full crossfire upgrade on my A8R32-mvp and got big problems with high pitched screaming noise when crossfire enabled. I took out the crossfire master, put back the slave card in its original position and now the mobo wont boot past splash screen...even resetting cmos has no effect.

    Im pretty sure the mobo is faulty so Im looking fo an alternative so I can try and get an RMA. Must be: 939 crossfire board good overclocker, onboard sound if possible. ideas please.,
