AMD Radeon HD 6950 Screen flickering - Page 4

So this is an issue with Afterburner and the way it controls / detects the 2D and 3D clocks? I just tried to overclock my 5850 and had to resort to enabling the unofficial overclock mode on Afterburner; core clock was fine but raising the memory just makes it start doing this. Even resetting the clocks back to default doesn't fix it until reboot (the PC actually rebooted because I let it keep going once.) Thought I maybe stressed the card too much after all the furmark testing.

Going to go through the Sapphire Trixx thread but that made my PC lock up when I changed the clocks though it could be because I was using CCC to overclock before (was still open with Overdrive disabled.) I have a Sapphire HD 5850 Vapor-X so I can't adjust the voltage on my card with either programs.

Edit: Forgot to mention; I don't really want to get rid of PowerPlay as I leave my PC on.


Read my sig thread and you will understand why it's happening in more detail. But in essence AMD changed the way Powerplay works, or that is how invasive it is and severely impacted its compatibility with unofficial overclock methods. The bypass method works so read it it and give it a try.

Oh, I see that part now, thanks; I'll give it a try in a while as I was messing around with my CPU after updating the motherboard BIOS.

Edit: It worked, powerplay is still active. Maybe I didn't notice with the unofficial method but I was getting artifacts on lower clocks with this method.

open MSIAfterburner.cfg in notepad.

Scroll to bottom and change this:

UnofficialOverclockingEULA = I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it
UnofficialOverclockingMode = 2


Are you kidding me. TSM I both love you and absolutely despise you right now because of how long I've been fiddling around with profiles etc in CCC (Have spent at least 11 hours on it) and now you come and tell me this.
Sigh... Good work finding it out but you've made me realize how much time I've wasted now thumb.gif

I can confirm Sapphire Tricks triggers it, but it persists after Trixx is shut down untill restart. Mine has occurred on my HD6850. I was affraid I had voltage issues or GDDR issue

I can confirm that I have not had this problem using CCC. Now if AMD would supply adequet fan ramp rates I wouldnt need any 3rd party softwar:thumb:e

its maybe old, but know, the problem exists even with catalyst 13.1

Just change your screen resolution or bit depth, and then change it back, it'll fix it. I have the same problem with Trixx, even if I don't OC with it.

I ended up doing the "-xcl" trick on MSI afterburner, everything works fine but sometimes forgot the core voltage, also disabled CCC from starting up.

I don't think so, for me it was mostly to remove any compatibility problems on overclocking.

The latest MSI afterburner (3.0.0 beta 7) has tick boxes in the settings to enable different overclocking methods, I recommend upgrading to the latest drivers as I got an extra 120-ish points (from 12.4 drivers) in the valley benchmark with my unlocked HD 6950.
