post #7551 of 38701
I've installed about every driver out there for these cards. I did a fresh windows install when I bought my 2 Vertex 3's and I was running my 3 480's. 2 weeks later just uninstalled my Nvidia drivers and installed the 7970 and Rc11. Since then I've installed 12.2, and all the betas. 8.95.5 was the best, but couldn't play Mw3, so I went back to Rc11.

From what you've said, I would have a messed up version of windows now right? I don't get it? I've always been able to get back into windows and never had any issues with windows that I can tell. If I need to install a fresh OS, maybe I will.

In on screen display and you have to click on the items in the list then make sure you check the SHOW IN ON-SCREEN DISPLAY. If they are selected to be displayed on screen you will see OSD beside each in the list.

Thanks, I did that, and after 40 minutes of playing BF3 @ 1920 x 1200 on HIGH settings, the GPU temperature never went above 54 C (hovered between 52-53 mostly), the GPU usage jumped around between 70 - 99%, the fan speed stayed at a constant 30%, and the Core/Memory clocks remained at a stable 880/1250 Mhz.

Do these numbers look right?

Thanks.

Hey all,

I'm still using the drivers that shipped with the card. It's stable and perfect right now, but is there a performance gain from using the newer ones?

Looks good to me, 54c max is very comfortable.

If you are happy where you're at there's no need to swap to different driver. Wait till there is more consensus on a best driver I say.

I figured. It already runs bf3 max and perfectly anyways, so until I get 3 screens who cares right?

On a side note, what causes artifacts? Not enough voltage, too much heat or over-all unstable OC?

I'm saying this cause I can run 1225/1700 @ 1.25v but 1250/1700 @ 1.25v randomly makes artifacts in games...sometimes it runs fine all day, sometimes it gives artifacts right away

Artifacts come in two flavors. There's the typical blocks, lines, digital noise looking type that is usually memory. Then there are the more rare organic looking colors, flashes or splotches of light that are core related. It reads like you are one, at your cores limit of stability at 1250 and two you might be in error correction with your memory at 1700. What do your artifacts look like? The ideal way is to test core then memory, working your way up till you find your stable maximum clock. How did you arrive at the 1700 on the memory btw?

Which one is newer? 8.95.5 is newer right so you don't have to install them.

After I went from RC11 to 8.95.5, my driver was updated but my Cat was still the old 11.12. Even after I manually updated my Cat to 12.2 it was still showing Cat 11.12 in the "Software INformation" tab in CCC. I finally ran ATIMan uninstall and then installed the Cat 12.4 Open CL w/8.96.

HOWEVER, I received an error about C++ distributable failing to install. This may be tied into the post a page or 2 back saying that RC11 does mess with Windows system files. So far have not had any issues playing games on 12.4 w/8.96
