Windows 7: AMD Crossfire Screen flicker when NOT in game 13.10 driver

AMD Crossfire Screen flicker when NOT in game 13.10 driver

So I have an odd problem, I added in a third Radeon HD 5870 to my crossfire setup today and now my secondary monitor (Viewsonic VX2450, hooked up through HDMI to DVI adapter) flickers, but only when I'm not playing a game. If I have any game running, on my primary monitor (LG 24EN31, hooked up through Dual-Link DVI, does not flicker in game or not) or the ViewSonic, I get no flickering effect, I've noticed the same effect when I overclock any of the cards. I'm using AMD's 13.10 driver, and it worked fine when I only ran two cards. I don't know what the problem is or why I only have it when I'm not in a game, because in every other post I've seen similar to this, the user only has the issue while playing a game. Any help would be great, thanks.

EDIT: I have tried the ViewSonic monitor with a standard DVI cable as well as a DVI to VGA adapter cable and neither fixed the issue.

EDIT: Downgraded to 13.9 drivers (The current official release) and it fixed the issue, I can deal without 13.10's improvements until it's bugs are sorted out
