I never worried about it because it still ran fine in games and we all know the drivers suck. Have you tried just sitting it out? I think it's to do with fan profiles.

I tried sitting it out, but it goes on for at least 15 minutes, so I figured it wasn't going to get better.
I'm trying to find my max overclock, but everytime I get close and BF3 or Unigine crashes, the reboot is a neverending loop of driver crashing.
How am I supposed to find my max overclock and save profiles if everytime I crash a benchmark and reboot Windows, I get the neverending looping?
Is this only a problem with 12.4?
Thx for your help guys.

I am on 12.3, so no. Are you sure you've properly enabled UOM? Also, if you have CAPs installed, try uninstalling them. A lot of issues I was having vanished when I uninstalled CAPs.

Hey guys, since I had to reinstall windows I figured I'll give 12.4 a go. Quick question though, are caps useful for single GPU setups? Never used them before. Thanks.

Well, I wiped everything.
Reinstalled 12.4 and Trixx.
Disabled Trixx from starting on boot, and problem seems to have gone away.
Thx for your help! +REP

Another question, is it unstable memory clocks that cause artifacting?
And should I be able to run stable at 1200mhz and 1675mhz memory at 1.21 voltage or is that unrealistic?

There have been cases in which a CAP will provide maybe 1-2 small fixes for a game regarding single GPU configurations, but mostly they're 99.9% fixes that are for crossfire and crossfire specific issues only, the other fixes tend to just be enveloped in the driver version itself.

You will see virtually zero performance increase if you install CAPs with a single GPU configuration, don't even bother.

Sorry for the list of neverending questions, but in order to unlock voltage control in Trixx, is clicking the Disable ULPS button the only thing I need to do?

Nope it should be unlocked on it's own, at the bottom of the overclocking panel.

Cool, thank you.
Is 1550mhz on memory pretty pathetic?
I have the voltage slider all the way to 1.25, even though it never goes above 1.17ish on Unigine, and 1200 core and 1550 memory is as high as I can go. How come the voltage won't go past 1.17 and go up to say 1.2ish?
It seems like I should be able to hit over 1550 memory without artifacting. Temps are low so I doubt that is the issue.

I would check one of the latest CAPs that AMD released... It is/was full of fixes for single GPU...

Any way to fix this?

Do you push the reset button in Trixx when you are done with gaming and before closing Trixx?
You should hit reset, apply and then close Trixx.
Try that before rebooting and all should be ok thumb.gif
