Everywhere you go to read up on the subject there is so many conflicting reports it'll drive you crazy. One says higher is better, others lower is better. I'm going to be getting 3 more cards and the last thing I'll worry about is the ASIC score.

Honestly, I totally agree with you and no arguements here. smile.gif These values really dont have that much against them and were never needed until they just recently added that itty bitty feature in. Hell, I still wont be using those percentages with my new cards ill be getting, they are a waste to really get too much into. Anyways, I was just posting some little information in here from other sites because some people can't do a little research on them. thumb.gif

Yea ASIC is BS. Especially on boost cards.

To the OP, is your motherboard BIOS up to date? Have you used that PCI slot before? Did you try the card in a different PCI slot? If you are running crossfire did you take out the old card and just run the new card alone?

My mobo is older, but up to date, I only have one pic slot, and it worked perfect for my last two cards. This is the first pci 3.0 card tho, my psu is fine, and no I am not running crossfire, obviously with only one slot. Like I said before bumping up to 20% + power in ccc fixes it. Although, when I overclock too much, and get artifacts (not enough voltage), I go back to stock and I still have artifacts. Annoys me. I have to reboot to fix it. So as long as I dnt overclock it till its unstable, I'm fine. I'm at 1100mhz at stock clocks right now.
