It sounds to me like your top card might be a little wonky if it is artifacting at stock speeds...

I think it was the 13.1 Drivers I was using, upgrading to 13.3 removed the Artifacting, however I'm only running one GPU at the moment. Going to plug in the 2nd GPU when I get home...

Where did you notice artifacts? And did you notce artifacts while mining? I think i can give you explanation but let me hear you first.

I have the f10 BIOS on my card, I downloaded f43 because I want to try that one out. I backed up my current BIOS using @bios and it listed my bios as F10. When I tried to flash F43 with that program it says that the BIOS is not compatible. Is this safe to flash with ATI flash instead of using gigabytes utility @bios? I've never flashed BIOS on a video card before, but I've done it on my mother boards. I would like to try a different versions since mine is from the beginning of 2012. But the f43 bios I downloaded it is not a .bin extension, it's a .F43 extension from the looks of it

Belkov im getting very little windows artifacts after 10+ hours of mining. On a 7950 WF3 with SAPPER bios at 1100/1575 with 1.15v. Temps arent even high theyre at ~75, never beyond 80. Using 13.3 beta 3. Everything seems to work perfect except for these minor desktop artifacts after 10h+ use. Got any idea what the problem is ? I expect the clock to be able to go higher on this volt so i suspect its only some bug or whatever.

You can only update to a BIOS version of the same series. If your VBIOS version is:
F1, it can only be updated with VBIOS versions F2-F9.
F10, it can only be updated with VBIOS versions F11-F19.
F20, it can only be updated with VBIOS versions F21-F29.

@DEWE
what are you mining? If you are mining bitcoins, you must lower memory clock a lot, not to make it higher. I'm mining with 1100/625MHz. Artifacts appears because memory temps are increasing during mining. Try to lower the memory to 900MHz at least.

Im mining litecoins which requires high memory. I have a WF3 rev 2 which should be properly cooled. The artifacts are extremely minimal and only show up on rare occasions in firefox etc. Theyre so small that im suspectings its software related and not OC/heat related. Im currently on 1100/1575 and i still experience them, however for gaming card is stable in 1135/1630.
