sub ambient means cooler than air .. typically for benching. usually if you dont know about it you wont ever care about it but on the other hand the oc formula has alot of cool profiles and adjustments that helped me on air aswell.

honestly dont bother crossfire . get a good 7970 oc it put the other 400-500 bucks in a jar and buy another card in 2 years. you will be further ahead than if you cross fired. and you can sell the other card for some return. esp if you buy something like the asus matrix 7970 they will have a return value.
