If your familiar with Radeons driver sets you should be able to remove them and install new ones without any problems.
Driver sweeper like programs can make things worse, I've never had to use safe mode either.
Although I do believe users when they say they needed to, nothing surprises me with Radeons driver suite.

Was this in response to my above question?

I'm getting really bad performance right now on my second card, and games run awful at the moment.

Seemingly out of nowhere, however, I had an overclock on both cards and it seems my cards didn't like the overclock frown.gif

For reference it was 1125MHz core at stock volts + maybe a bit on Core volts just to make sure it was ok.

I am absolutely sure what I say.
All the main parameters remains in these HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} fields.

The parameters because it is different from one driver to another if not deleted still active when the new driver is less than or different from the previous.

If not delete that values drivers will not work exactly with the parameters set for him, resulting in malfunctions.

Ccleaner or driver sweeper doesn't delete any of that values......

lol, if I don't get any help in the next few minutes, I'll probably list both cards up for sale

Those don't need and should not be deleted. You may bsod. The only one that needs to be deleted is Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318.


I don't use/dislike atiman, and I think it and driversweeper is poop. thumb.gif

But if you are that frustrated I'm sure someone else would love to enjoy your two cards.

Haha. Seems like a lot of work just for Crossfire, tbh.

I guess I'll re-install.

Probably no point yet since I can't nab the driver from AMD's site (it is down)

Reinstall just to install drivers? How inept is this (not directed at you)? Sorry, it's simple to do a driver clean w/o resorting to 3rd party tools if you only know how. Btw, what was wrong with 12.6 for you?

I'm geting really weird usage.

I was getting 100% or 99% on both cards in CSGO and MW3 before, now, I'm getting this:

Before I had no problems.
usage.png 982k .png file

Also ULPS is disabled. (Just did it) and no fix.

Besides, AMD's site won't let me DL the 12.6 or 12.7 beta drivers -- not sure why

GPU usage is 1 part hardware, 1 part driver, and equal parts game design.

You can only really deal with your hardware and driver. Beyond that you have to hope it is optimized in the game. That said, I would have AB display the GPU usage in the OSD, you know what that is right? Then fire up a known game that works and check usage.

What yer trying to do is prove that the hardware/driver works, preferably in known quantity/game. You can even use Heaven too. I don't play MW3... er well I did for 5 minutes, did not like. biggrin.gif

Anyways, you have to prove to yourself that you can get proper usage in other games/apps first to narrow it down. If you have no clue, then there's no point in changing drivers.
