Flickering Dual Monitors Please Help!

Hello, I have two BenQ GW2765 monitors that are connected via DisplayPort and HDMI to two R9 290X video cards running with Crossfire enabled. I was looking forward to having this extra monitor help me when I work, but has instead given me more work just to get them to stop flickering. After about 15-20 minutes after logging in, both screens will begin to flicker. I've tested the cables and with each monitor just on by itself to see if a monitor or cable was bad, but they work fine, as long as it's not set in a dual monitor setup.

 

I've tested around and found that when they both start flickering, if I play a YouTube video and full screen it, the flickering stops on both monitors. So, it seems like it might be something with the drivers. I'm not sure and am tired of this problem. Does anybody have any ideas?

 

OS: Windows 10 Home 64-bit

AMD Driver version: 15.12

Video Card: MSI R9 290X Battlefield 4 Edition (GPU Clock/Memory) 1000Mhz/1250Mhz

                   ASUS ROG R9 290X (GPU Clock/Memory) 1050Mhz/1350Mhz

 

Thank you in advance!
