Correct. But like it has been mentioned, you gotta do something pretty stupid to fry either a GPU or CPU. I say it's easier to fry a GPU because they're less likely to shut down before excessive heat damages some of the components, whereas a CPU will throttle itself as soon as it hits it's thermal limit.

In order to fry either with voltage, you pretty much have to set it to the highest possible setting from the OS and then immediately jump into a benchmark, or stop pouring Liquid nitrogen into your pot because your wife is on the phone and won't leave you alone, or whatever. People on the forums can tell you exactly what the safe 24/7 voltage is for your processor or card, and I'd be surprised if there isn't a master list somewhere that someone compiled that I'm too lazy to find. The concept is very simple, you change the settings, they don't change themselves, so if you don't put the voltage above the safe maximum, your chances of frying anything are virtually nil.

I used to get this occasionally. Resetting my clocks and then re-overclocking fixed it. Now it is never bad like that, but for a brief moment I do get a flicker when my OC profiles change.

I reinstalled my machine and installed the drivers and MSI afterburner.
I go to enable Unofficial overclocking but they are stuck to 0. I read the thread on Guru3d that you need two .DLL files, but in the same thread the Link to download them does not work.
Much appreciated if anyone could find or upload these two .DLL files.

Only need one .DLL or I only needed this one. Drag and drop in MSI AB main folder in hard disk. Should prevent AB from reverting the clocks and allow overclocks to apply.

Either way, I wasn't suggesting that this is the perfect solution. Just one that I've found to work smile.gif


Sorry about the quality. I only had my phone and it was difficult working the mouse and camera. If you expand the vid and pause it so you can take in the info more easily. The flicker is caused by clock speed fluctuations. There's a few different kinds of flicker and that vid deals with the flicker from 3D apps on the desktop that conflict with Powerplay.

Essentially, Powerplay sees 3D clocks on the desktop so it will drop the clocks to idle speeds. That's a problem because the game log on screen has enabled 3D acceleration, and therein lies the problem. The clock speeds jump up and down over and over.

Those two clicks I did in the video were disabling AB's interface with Powerplay. This prevents Powerplay from dropping the clocks, voila no flicker due to 3D clocks on the desktop.

thats not true... FX6200 should bottleneck a sigle hd7950... by watching the results it seem that the videocard was running at stock speed
i see 300core and 150 memory clock... maybe not in the entire benchmark but in part of it...

Thanks, I'll give that a shot later on.

300/150 is just wrong reading of system info, i have experienced on almost every card that i had.

ok but it will not be the cpu holding the videocard either
post #16530 of 38704
Installed this card last night, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00713RT62/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00

Anyone know if I can use the new boost BIOS on it? Sorry, total newb when it comes to GPUa
