If I use the windows aero maximize feature (drag window to top of screen) my second monitor flickers a little (black lines) for a second after the window changes. I have messed with every possible combination. The highest I have gone with voltage is 1300mV. Any suggestions? Do I need to update bios? I want to get 960 out of these cards but at least 900...50 Mhz is fairly mild. Thanks in advance.
edit: these screen glitches also appear when performing various tasks like zooming in and out in photoshop. openGL issue maybe?
Been running two 5770 ref designs in mine for over a year.
(But), running just a single Sammy 26'' at 1200/1900res.
Runs everything I throw at it and doesn't flinch and performs flawlessly.
Run 960/1375 at default voltage 1.125 with them 24/7.
Have had the voltage to over 1.3 and 1050/1400+ no problems.
Temps under 72c when stressed, benchmarch or gaming even with cards
stacked close togeather, which hurts top card temp
Was running the 10.5 drivers which was very stable.
Now 11.7 and work great also other than don't like new format
Suggest take extra time to completely remove all traces of old drivers
thru safe mode,driver sweeper, and manually go thru os and get all of
remnants out, Believe me; there are there.
Registry also,(But), be careful there if no experience in it!!
Try the 10.5s as seemed like a good stable set.
As to 2nd monitor could be a cabling or connection problem.
As to heat if not on water use heat sinks on the ram chips and a dedicated fan blowing on them.
