No such thing as overkill. Using 16x/x4 for crossfire is pure stupidity.
Let me put it this way, why would you pay for 2 expensive gpu and cheap out on a board that can't bring out the cards true potential?
You probably won't lose performance depending on the game, but extremely small gain using 16x+x4 PCIE lanes.
Time to upgrade motherboard board, or go 6990.
