6870 cf artifacting in skyrim

I recently updated my drivers to 12.2, and the first time i ran skyrim after that, i noticed white dots collecting around anything that gives off light. This only happens in skyrim, which is probably the last game i would like to see issues in. I tried rolling back my drivers, turning of crossfire, and swapping the gpu's into opposite pci slots, but all to no avail. I have read that it might be caused by the memory clock rate being overclocked too much, but my cards were not overclocked at the time the issue started. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated

Phenom II 955 oc'd to 4.2GHz

msi 870s motherboard

  1. also, a few days prior to this incident, i have noticed skyrim and bad company two flickering occasionally in crossfire. like the artifacting issue, it only occurs in specific games.
  2. hows your temps? crank the fans up
    overclock? lower the speeds on the cards
