1) After not using the PC @ Night i sometimes either turn off the monitor or it goes to power saving mode. (U2711 Loses Connection to PC if you turn it off) In the morning the PC does not wake up. By PC i mean the GPU HD 7970 because the computer i know for a fact its working because i can still access my Video Server and everything works.
Had this problem with other official releases but no RC11.
2) This other one kills it for me. I am not sure if any of you have experienced it but in short after using the computer for different things like Youtube, word processing, picture, video and then try to play a game the GPU is infected? Basically i get super low fps (BF3 ~ 20-40fps appose to 60-80fps, Dota 2 60fps but drops to 30-40fps) This can be normal if you leave a youtube video on and the card gets stuck in 2D clocks but based on MSI AB and GPU-Z the GPU is @ full speed, full clock, full volts and even 99% GPU usage even in Dota 2 which i get 30-40%.
3) Another stupid thing is when you are using the computer for different things and you stitch from page to page and depending on the load the GPU clocks up and down the screen flickers. Its is really anointing. Did not not do it it RC11 but it did with 12.2.
I feel really stupid. I am not going to go buy a GTX680 but i will definitely consider Nvidia over AMD next upgrade. I really find it hard to speed as much money on a AMD card as a Nvidia GPU having these kind of drivers.
Does AMD have like 2 people working on drivers? Did they not bother after RC11?

1) Has happened to me too. Try 12.4 WHQL
2) It's happened to me with the 5870. I had played a Youtube video and left the browser on, then played some BF3. But GPU clocks were stuck at 500MHz (video playback). So close any Youtube tabs before you game.
3) Do you use Firefox?

1)I have 12.4 WHQL
2) That is normal. What i have need a PC restart. It happens with nothing open other then the game.
3) I use Opera. No problems with RC11, I even tried to disable HW Acceleration but it did not help. Monitoring MSI AB it happens each time there is a clock up or down of the GPU.

Uninstall AB. Gave me all weird problems, even when the program was not running, just installed.

Yeah, its nice. Totally hassle free.

Remove AB totally, ATI man to remove all ati now, some reboots. 12.4 install, then trixx.

I went round and round and could not figure for the life of me what the problem was with EVERY driver since RC11. I was having bizarre problems that nobody else seemed to be having. RC11 was only driver that played nice with AB in my experience but it is just too old now.

1) Get rid of AB and any other overclocking tool (uninstall via control panel)
2) uninstall current drivers via control panel (uninstall CAP first - reboot every time inbetween)
3) remove all ATI/AMD dirs in your user directories (show hidden folders / Files)
4) uninstall the GPU also via device manager and reboot (this should erase every setting)
5) use ccleaner to clean registry
6) install 12.4 whql (reboot when needed)
7) install newest Trixx
8) have fun ! thumb.gif

I doubt it will be stable at 1115mv.
First time with new Trixx I made a mistake and run a 3dmark at 1068mv instead of 1168mv and got all kinds of screen flickering + hanging + display driver stopped working. Only thing I could do in the end was forced reboot...
But I will try, you never know wink.gif

Welp, played BF3 for 3 hours last night with absolutely no issues whatsoever. Then switched to Crysis 2 and hard locked after like 10 mins. This was at stock. Really starting to hate AMD...

On the other hand, you can not expect new drivers to work with all ''older'' games. This is the same story with nvidia drivers, I speak out of experience wink.gif

Wasn't aware Crysis 2 and BF3 were "old" games (both DX11 after all)...
