Same thing here. My card will crash if I use the power control slider. I only increase it for running benchmarks.

Yea. I used both the Catalyst Overdrive utility and Asus GPU Tweak. As you can see in my SS it easily OCs to 1050/1450.

I have been having what I believe are driver problems. There are problem areas in Skyrim, which CTD and are repeatable. I have to tone the settings down, walk through the area and reload Ultra settings. But when its not CTD it is running smooth and cool.

I thought It may have been my CPU OC that was messing up, but I reverted to default clocks and it still persisted. Hopefully new drivers solve the problem, or I'll be doing a clean install to see if that remedies it.

Someone posted awhile back that 12.5 beta drivers were up. You might look into that. Not sure what they implemented as I haven't seen the change log and I use 12.4 because that works well for me.

Oh, you stated the problems were AB related in your previous post.. could indeed just be driver-to-game related.

Yea. AB was another problem area. I didn't properly define all my problems. Was day one and trying to isolate it.

It even crashed once while Benchmarking Heaven. Oddly enough every day that passes that card seems to be more and more stable.

Yeah, have had Heaven crash a few times on me as well, but with the same settings in a game it's fine..

Tweaking.. it's probably the most fun you can have with hardware smile.gif

Have you pushed the max out of the card yet? I'm quite curious how it compares to the other 7850's here.

I'm having a tough time choosing between several HD7850s, namely, the Sapphire model, MSI Twin Frozr or MSI Power Edition. The Sapphire model is the cheapest, though not by much. Not so sure about how much better the MSI Power Edition can overclock though.

Which one would you guys recommend?

I picked up the msi 7870 as its warranty is 3 years, and Sapphire is 2 years. But my saphire 5850 I had and used for a couple of years and now gave to my son, is still rocking away.

I had a bad crashing problem with my msi 7870. After days of asking questions and trying new things it seems to be either the driver (12.4) or (msi afterburner). I'm still testing, but I had remembered the crashes with both msi AB and trixx. Don't know why as all I used those utility's for was to setup a custom fan profile and no OC. So my GP runs around in the S under load,never above 65 . This is with CC auto fan control. Are these good?
