post #14761 of 38701
I just do the uninstall from the Control Panel, reboot, and install new drivers method. From what I have seen so far the 12,7 beta drivers were more stable than the 12.8WHQL...

That's interesting - I didn't realize coil whine / buzz is something that can go away over time. I thought it was just there for good. How long can I expect this sound to persist for - a few months?

Edit: Just to add, this doesn't sound like a high pitched whistle - it's more like crickets and fan interference at once, but I don't see any fan interference. In fact I hear the fans separately when they spin up, and it's a more normal fan sound. This noise happens as soon as Heaven 3.0 loads and such. If I tab out of Heaven or a game, it stops immediately, so it's not the fans. Kind of like a high-voltage sound when going by the power lines, but on a small scale. There is a high piercing more whistle-like sound when on Heaven 3.0 Credits page.

Concerning screen refresh rate: It's currently displayed as 60Hz, and has normally been 59Hz with previous cards, but always 59-60Hz. I was going to try setting it to 59 to test, but the option is unavailable (since I'm using Korean monitors without OSD, so they are entirely dependent on GPUs to drive them). 59.9* and 60Hz are the same anyway, so I don't think changing it by 1 Hz would do any good to reduce screen tearing. Any other ideas concerning screen tearing? I only notice it with the new 7970 and to some extent with my old 7870 - not my GTX 580 that I sold or GTX 670. Something I need to change in the Catalyst Control Center, perhaps? (or maybe even uninstall it altogether)

So what is the best and safest way to update drivers?

Bradley_W has an excellent guide in his sig on how to completely uninstall old drivers from one's system. I don't have a direct link but you can find him in the past couple pages thumb.gif

Wow.. such a big jump.
830/1250 1.093v/1.6v
*Image with stock clocks* - FPS: 37.9 and Scores: 954

Amazing difference! specool.gif

Anyone who can show a FPS test of a Crossfire X setup with one HD 7950 and HD 7970 that works together in the same setup? Would like to see how it should work out redface.gif

I have a 7950 crossfired with a 7970 in my AMD rig - I can test it tonight and post the results

Used your guide to install the 12.8 drivers and my flickering problem with heaven 3.0 persist. I'm pretty sure that the 12.7 beta drivers wouldn't fix the problem neither because shouldn't they basically be the same drivers? So should I RMA my card or keep happily using it and test stability with other software? Now that heaven 3.0 is out of the question what should I use to test the stability in addition to BF3 if i keep the card?

RMA's my Radeon 7970, they sent me it back and even after 10-15 minutes of Furmark my screen starts to hang black even on stock clocks. Tried to lower clocks, still happens. Upped voltage/lowered voltage, still happens. I'm at a loss what to do now I even tried all different drivers from their site, the latest, beta, and older ones. It always seem to hang the system when the GPU Usage hits 95% and above for a certain amount of time. The GPU isn't overheating as the temp stays below 70 degrees at all times.

what are your VRM temps 1 & 2 during load

also what brand is it ?

Wow never thought about VRM Temps. My brand is an XFX 7970 Double D. Apparently the VRM Temps for #1 are insanely high reaching 105 degrees Celcius + while my VRM Temps for #2 just stay under 70 degrees Celcius around 65. My main GPU Temp lingers around 75-80 during this so It may have something to do with the VRM Temps for #1. I stopped it early, because of the huge temp differences between #1 and #2 and my system was on a verge of another system hang.

Edit: Decided to let it go fully and the VRM temps for #1 caps at 115 Celcius lingering to 113-115 and if you leave it for like 15 minutes it crashes. This is with the main GPU Temp to be at 80 degrees Celcius and the 2nd VRM Temps to be at 78 degrees Celcius.
