Recent driver Update causing major pixelation randomly on my screen at times

Since the latest driver update for Radeon Crimson to this new ReLive version, on startup occasionally I will have a graphical issue where the screen heavily pixelates and then the screen blanks out and is fine once it pops back on, before the clean install it would just pixelate badly and i couldnt even see the screen to do anything, would have to do a reboot. ive done a clean reinstall 3x now and still have the same issue, I didnt have this issue with the previous version of the amd crimson drivers. Below is my PC and graphics card details. Ever since this pc was built I have had nothing but graphics drivers issues, even with my old graphics installations would fail constantly or have other issues and they were also AMD radeon cards run in X-Fire mode. You would think being an AMD motherboard and chipset they would get this stuff figured out and fixed better to work with their own graphics cards....
