[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 893

post #8921 of 38701
Ooookay, another annoyance popped up.

Did a clean install of Windows and installed 8.95.5 (12.4?) with 12.3 CAP1. Installed MSI AB mainly for fan control and OSD and minor OC from 925/1375 to 1000/1500 with no changes in any config files.

The problem happens once every startup at a random time. It happens once and only once until the next shut down/start up. I would be playing a game and then sudden CCC decides to open up which then minimizes my game, I see the CCC tray icon in my system tray pop up and disappears, my GPU fans spin back up to whatever CCC set it as and I need to restart AB to apply settings.

So what happens is CCC decides to open up randomly to troll me while I'm gaming. Overrides AB settings and sometimes causes my game to freeze up without saving.

No sarcasm, read this. I do have Xfire, just wanted to see what I could get with 1 card and Virtu.

What about Virtu MVP with CrossFire? Wonder what that'll score like. By the way, great news everyone:

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/news/video/breaking-news-amd-hd-7970-price-drop-incoming/

Oh so sweet... I should be able to get my 2nd 7970 at a great price in a month. I can wait... All those fixes have got to love my card now... now all I need to do is save just a little bit more for that 2nd card...

That Virtu is supposed to boost your gaming performance also?

Man, get rid of AB and use Trixx.
AB is just buggy as hell. If you dont need voltage control on the memory I would def. suggest Trixx over AB.

Sorry for double post !

Hi guys, my cards wont run stable at 1200/ 1600.I get "display driver stopped responding and has recovered and also system lock ups while gaming and benching.No matter what voltage I feed these cards.ULPS is disabled.
Can you share MSI AB settings please?I think I may have messed up the "kernel mode" option or the force constant voltage" I have it set to 1175 mv.

I might give Trixx another try. I tried Trixx when I first bought my 7970's with the supplied CD near launch day. It did not allow me to underclock as it automatically set my voltage to 1.175 when both my cards are 1.05v cards and I actually use AB to down volt more to .975v when I run them at stock speeds in CF to reduce heat further. I don't know if that's fixed in Trixx yet, but if not, I'd stick to AB. Also, AB offers OSD which I find is very useful because AMD drivers are buggy and I always like to see what's going on in the game.

Trixx is sort of the same crap just a different veneer.

Btw, don't open overdrive if you use either crap hehe.

Btw, you should run your heaven runs following the top 30 thread that way you can compare your results instead of them being random.

I think the Top 30 thread uses Heaven 2.5 not 3.0. I suggest he just run it maxed out as a lot of people are starting to do that...


 

No, they have a new thread started for the Heaven 3.0
