    Ok so basically I got my new motherboard 890FXA-GD70 MSI and I installed my two cards into it. Booted fine and the bios updated to 1.80 fine.

    So basically now my CCC will not start. I can overclock using afterburner so windows is holding the cards fine. But I can not adjust any of my quality-performance settings and its really getting annoying. It just goes and says "CCC has stopped working checking for solution". I will post a pic just to let you see what it is doing.

    If I can get this fixed that would be amazing because I have literally tried everything. Thanks!

    i've ran into a few people with this problem, and in each case the fix was as follows.

    format and reinstall a non-modified windows. that means no tweaks, no disabled services, no pre modded ISO's.

    Once thats done, update the OS. any service packs or windows updates - get em all. (you can skip video card drivers from windows update here.)

    reboot, THEN install the latest drivers. reboot again.

    all is well.

    at this point, if you have a dual GPU setup, install the second card now and let it be detected in the CCC.

    the cause for this is somehow related to CCC's dependencies, be it a service, dotnet file or registry entries... something fucks it up, and it just wont work without fixing it... but its like finding a needle in a haystack. formatting to a new haystack is the easiest fix.
