Hmm.. Thought that might be a cheap easy option. Never mind.

Try 028 or 032 bios,disable Overdrive in CCC and disable CCC from startup and that should solve the problem.

I have VTX3D 7870 Black and 032 bios from Powercolor HD 7870 Myst EZ edition http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/135730/powercolor-hd7870-2048-130221.html ,CCC is disabled from startup and i have no fluctuations.
Before i haved a problem with overheating and cause was faulty Accelero S1 rev.2,i think that liquid is leaked,because with stock cooler everything is OK now smile.gif

I've tried 028, 031 and 032 with no luck. Overdrive is disabled and CCC is not set to startup but the clock is still jumping around between 500 (?), 925, 975 and 1100. Really frustrating!

Also, the card seems to pull a lot of current at idle. What's the difference between "Current" and "Current In" in GPU-Z? I'm seeing over 30A for "Current" and 4A for "Current In" at idle, which seems really high. I hope it's not actually pulling 30A all the time.

Hm,something is not ok than,this is my readings


Do you have newest GPU-Z?What power supply do you have?

100% for sure - airflow in your case seems to be a huge thing for these cards. I was around 74-75 at load until I added another intake fan which blows onto the video card, now have similar results to yours.

Airflow is the major factor in keeping these cards cool. I used to keep my side off my case to keep core and vrm temps down below 70 while folding, but I found that by putting the side on I have with a fan blowing directly on the cards I can overclock and fold for days on this thing.

I switched back to the .032 BIOS and it's lower now, but still high:

post #2437 of 5206
Ok, I'm now confused as my Myst has somehow acquired the ability to flash itself from the 032 bios to the 028 bios. I know without a doubt that it was 032 when I got it. I used Gpu-z to save it even. Now I was messing around with this just to see what it was like(which I do like it). I pressed the info button, and to my surprise it showed bios 028. Is this correct. Gpu-z reports 028 also now. I have gained the ability to change my voltage as now I can raise vddc to 1.270 and Gpu-z reports it as 1.219 instead of 1.188. Well I guess I,m going to test it out a little to see if I can get 1300mhz to stop artifacting. rolleyes.gif


Edit: not quite, stable it artifacts slightly while folding http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/6fepx/
Edit: Ok, after going over some older Gpuz validations, I have found that indeed it was the 028 bios all along but I swear that on my screen it always showed 032. I don't know why only now it is showing up as 028. I looked at that number so many times because I wanted to flash to 028 but was always to lazy, hmmm maybe I should try the 032 bios.

Your voltage is high for it to be at idle 1.107v, I'm pretty sure mine idles at .800v

Hi guys I just got my sapphire XT and I had a hiccup in getting it set up. I tried plugging in my 2nd monitor to the HDMI port to the monitor in its HDMI port. For some reason that monitor shows a black border around the edge of about 1 inch thick. Some of my research has indicated that it could be because I'm using an HDMI port or because maybe the HDMI cable isn't fully plugged into the gpu. Unfortunately I can't just push the plug into the gpu to fix it since my case is blocking further insertion. I have a mini display port to dvi connector on the way and I might try that. However, I'm thinking of maybe trying a dvi splitter and hooking up both monitors with dvi cables. If I did this, would I be able to have a main monitor and an extended monitor from a dvi splitter?

edit: oh yea a 2nd problem is that after updating ccc I can't open ccc. However the picture on my 1 monitor set up looks okay but I would rather be able to use 2.
