post #7951 of 38704
I have had issues with drivers of late, not so much in games, but updating to the newest onest.
Problems I have had:
BSOD on desktop with xfire enabled, random.
Windows would hang on the Loading screen randomly.

All my woes went away when I stopped using afterburner. thumb.gif

No, see above

You were saying? (p_-)

As for Afterburner, I have noticed it causes crashes with one of my games.

I was saying, that even how much voltage you set in MSI afterburner, the HD7970 and HD7950 both have OCP physically on the PCB of the card, which will limit the given voltage to the GPU to stock+125mV, as stated many many times in this thread.

Uninstall RC11 with ATIman and update to 12.3, run heaven for a while and still blackout occurs., hmmm what should I do?

Norlig is right. You can't go over +125mV on top of the stock voltage based on ASIC quality of the chip.

 

If you go over that number, OVP will kick in and often than not will see artifacts from overclocking. Not because of unstable OC settings but you set the voltage pass +125mV.

I've heard disabling ULPS in Windows registry solves the Crossfire and Afterburner problem

Are you overclocking the card? I know since the patch yesterday that BF was locking up on me, changed the O/C settings and it was fixed. It was fine with the O/C speeds prior to the patch.

And ATIMAN doesn't mean successful driver installation. Find the discussion on it a page back or so. It misses things and removes things that just aren't needed. You SHOULD be able to install drivers without using any tools. I think the problem is people have got so use to AMDs driver implementation and installing horrors that they still fill like it's necessary to nuke their system to get all the drivers off when really you just need to remove them from the CP or just upgrade them...

After I stopped using the cleaning tools, I haven't had ANY issues with the drivers, kind of funny. I've installed 3 drivers now that way.thumb.gif

Thread Starter 
Basically the VRM's (not the temps of the VRM's) are the limiting factor when overclocking these cards pretty high.
I assume the Lightning version of the 7970 wouldn't have this issue (for most people).

If I were to disable PowerPlay and clock my 7970 to 1070 MHz core and stock vcore it would work just fine while running OCCT.
Now if I were to push it any further than that, whether it's voltage or core clocks it would trip the card resulting in a black screen.

I don't believe there's anyway around that other than doing a hard mod.

First, we all accuse AMD drivers are bad. Now Atiman is the culprit because we ......... If we can't find answer or solution, out of frustation we just need something and someone to blame thumb.gif
