Also I have the same problem wit the artifacting and screen tearing. It is caused by running triXX with any drivers past 12.8.

 

 

Are you running an OLD version of TriXX ?

The LATEST UP TP DATE stuff ....

NOT SURE what POINT you're trying to make here ? or question you're trying to ask ?

 

A.) that's not OFFICIAL the TOXIC edition ... because,

 

B.) it's the HD-6970 not the 6950 it doesn't really need a DUAL BIOS switch, but I thought I recall in OrangeBunnies review it did ? I'd have to reread that all again, been too long to remember off hand.

 

I included it in our GROUP because it's basically 99% the same card as our HD-6950 TOXIC Edition once unlocked to a 6970 ... thumb.gif

I have a problem.

I set my voltage to 1.25, CPU to 950 and RAM to 1450

Then I ran Furmark burn in test. All looked stable, no artifacts whatsoever, max temp was 60c after 10 minutes or so with my watercooling. Then suddenly my PC reboots, and the card seems to work in 2D mode (?) because I can see the BIOS and everything right up until the windows logo is supposed to appear.

I'm using my CPUs integrated GPU right now to be able to boot and write this. Is there anything I can do to salvage it or has it just died? I tried flipping the BIOS switch and testing it with the shaders locked and still the same. Is it time for a new GPU?

1.25 v shouldn't have fried your card THAT fast ?  wth.gif though yeah it might not handle the OC and Over-Voltage and remain stable 24-7, I backed my card down to save it and run cooler 24-7 the slight increase in FPS aren't worth killing the card over ... but it sounds like something else is the issue for you ? because if your card was "fried" you wouldn't have gotten the "the card seems to work in 2D mode (?) because I can see the BIOS and everything right up until the windows logo is supposed to appear" you'd just have a BLACK screen until you switched the BIOS over to the integrated GPU. Hard to tell you what's going on  thinking.gif  ... but If all else fails, take the system apart, blow everything clean, re-grease it, and reboot and see what happens ? blushsmiley.gif Good luck and report/check back.

Well I don't know *** happened, but after switching back and forth between integrated cpu graphics and the graphics card, messing around with resetting the CCC (uninstall/reinstall newest beta drivers) and then doing a few bios resets it seems to be working fine again. very strange. I was able to boot up using the iGPU, and then swap the HDMI cable to the GPU, and then it worked fine!

I could even play a game. But it just wouldn't boot up and load windows with the card as the main output for some reason. I think it might have been some windows 8 / driver bug or something. However after doing that a few times and resetting everything it now boots up fine as the main output with the iGPU disabled. It was actually freezing or something after the windows logo too because if I typed my password in I didn't hear any login sound, and pressing the power button on my PC didn't shut it down as usual, it was just stuck on a black screen after the windows logo, but the monitor was still turned on and recieving input of some kind.

I was almost ready to drop £400 on a new GPU/waterblock too, so I guess I don't have to now (kind of sad in a way as I would like to upgrade but it's not worth it when this card unlocked/OC'd to 6970 standards still takes anything you can throw at it at 1920x1080
