is my 6950 OC unstable?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
ok so I have had my 6950 OC'd at 950/1450 for a few months now I fold on it atleast 20 hours a day with no problems. recently i have been having trouble with BF3. I have settings on high in game and I can play for random amounts of time(can be 5 min or up to 2 hours) and then get a grey screen where i can still see the mouse pointer and here things in game for about 5 min and then it just freezes. no reboot no bsod nothing just freezes until i power off.
im just stumped at why my card can fold for 20 hours pass all gpu stress tests with no problem but gives me crap while playing BF. also temps never go above 70c in game.

I have also had problems with BF3
Could possibly be a driver issue do you have the latest drivers
have you tried on stock settings?
does it only happen when playing multiplayer online
when freezes can you use start up manager to close game - ctrl-alt-delete
Also BF3 has alot of bugs at the moment so im sure they will be ironed out with the next update

If you're only having problems with BF3 then it's not likely a card problem. I'm sure ATI will put out some new drivers in the next couple weeks for BF3 fixes. (Hopefully)
