HD7950 idle clock at 500mhz

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
hi guys

Just noticed my temps have increased to 51c idle and my clock is at 500 mhz. I have tried installing 12.10 instead of 12.11 but it hasnt made any difference. Any ideas?

That seems normal to me. What was the temp before? How long ago did you check the temp before? Could always just be a dust build up.

BTW have you tried disabling Overdrive?

The temps were in the high 30s. ive only had the card for three weeks so i don't think it will be a dust problem.
Disabling overdrive doesn't have any effect on the clock speed either.

Get MSI Afterburner and run one of the benchmarks and take a screenshot of temp and post it here.

Greetings..
I got the same problem with my card .... I tried many things like switch to the original bios and the old drivers but nothing worked.. I finally came to the point where my card runs in 300 mhz only by using its hdmi- interface... The real Problem should come from once using the card in a multimonitor mode and than the card remembers the wrong main screen (1 = TV (Hdmi) 2=PC-TFT (DVI) (evtl I used the worng setting by switching to multimonitormode with win7 included tool and this caused the problem).... I run my system sometimes on my tv and watched the clocks directly going to 300mhz by connecting the hdmi cable and automatically switching my pc screen to standby ..... I think anywhere here is the problem to solve... sry 4 my english :>
