I think this may be my issue clocking my cards. What is it and what does it do, is there a link I can read? I have not tried to clock a single card but with CFX I cant clock for shhhiiiiii.

Okay here's the deal. Yesterday I was running my card at 1200 core and 1600 memory with no problems. But today I installed some new hardware and had to reinstall Windows.

I found out that in their latest driver (12.2) ATI has removed some dll files that are required to go beyond the official OC limits. I was using the same driver yesterday but apparently the missing files were still there from previous driver installation. Now I don't have these files anymore and can't OC past the official limits.

I tried installing driver 12.1 but it refused to install because that version doesn't support 7900-series. I also traced what dll files the latest 12.2 driver was missing that still existed in 12.1 and copied those dll files to /system32/drivers/ but it didn't help.

So is there any way to OC the card now? mad.gif

I have the 2 drivers. Although they were needed to turn of the ULPS because they were removed in the update. I was having a hard time getting it to turn off and I ended up finding a post on another forum with links to the two dll files. One goes in the SYSWOW64 and the other in the System32. If you want them, let me know.

I disable CCC altogether and it seems to improve stability. When playing skyrim I would hardlock, after disabling ccc the game runs fine.

Nice find! smile.gif Working for me better this way now also.

That doesn't sound new to me man. The scratches that are on the card may be a problem. Maybe if you try to use warranty for repair or replacement that may prove problematic. The repair facility may charge ans an OOW and say that there are signs of damage idk. Send the card back to place of purchase dude and get a new 1 instead of used like new. Some1 else may have messed something up and you dont want that to be on you.

Ok I talked to newegg and they told me to try it out and if there were problems with the used card they would RMA it for me

You bought something new, you should have received a new product. Used items always come with a used price tag. Did you pay full price? If so, return it and not for RMA. Newegg is notorious for pulling this crap, it isn't the first time we've seen stuff like this. The return for RMA is what has me doh.gif, seriously. You are getting shafted both ways. For your money you are getting a refurb card back if you go thru RMA. Nevermind that you currently have a used card.
