Also, La Kings Fan, I do have the Sapphire HD-6950 DIRT3 edition = Model #100312-3SR.

It just feels like those results should be better...since I hear so much about this card. It sure didnt "look" good, or smooth throughout the benchmark...

And..in a game like "magicka" you'd think it would run smooth. Its choppy..all the way through. The score looks about right I think, according to a google search, but my experience in games dont reflect it -at all-.

Okay let's go down the list.

1. You swapped cards to rule out that one was faulty.
2. Followed proper steps to uninstall and install new drivers when switching from nvidia to amd.
3. Reformat and reinstall windows.

Still no luck. I wonder if the 6950 is drawing just enough more power from your psu than the 560ti and it is causing instability issues.

Only other thing I might try that isn't hardware related is to rollback the driver to maybe 11.6 or so and see that helped.

I'm sure it's been asked but do you have afterburner installed?

On Second thought:
How about adjusting the power slider in ccc? Have you upped it to 20%. If not the default position might be causing you instability issues.

Adjust that slider before doing anything else.

Thanks for speaking up, bce!

I just upped it to 20% now, will go see how that affects me.

I gotta be honest, I have a good feeling about this. I won't go to sleep until I hear back from you.

This is gonna make my day to hear that your fixed.

I can't thank you enough to be concerned for me! It means a lot..this has been going on three days, and it's really disheartening. I've never had such an issue with a GPU.

But unfortunately, I have the same results by increasing that setting. I'll go get afterburner now.

Crap i've been following your thread and I was really hoping that might do it.

I gotta call it quits for the night but will sleep on it and think about what else it might be.

If you haven't tried it already it may be worth running your cpu at stock speed and volts to see if that alleviates your issues.

If the gpu runs smoothly when your at stock the issue your having when oced are certainly a power issue.

You can also tri the atiman uninstall tool then try an older driver 11.6 or 11.7.

Try at stock first if you haven't yet before anything else.

I'll go reset the multiplier and give it the ole college try. Thanks a lot for following this, and have a great night!

Don't think its a power issue, that PSU isn't far off my Corsair TX650 and i am running nearly the same specs as you but OCed quite a bit more. (See sig rig)

And i wouldn't think there would be any other issues with the PSU, seeing as it ran your 560 ti perfectly fine.

But its always a good idea to check if running stock fixes/helps when you are having a problem

Just my thoughts, i may be wrong.
