Also with the beta, I tried download it few times but always same message, trying few different things to fix it but I might just leave it.

With my problem before that games won't run - that was overclocking with EVGA fault. As soon as I uninstalled it, everything started working. Its quite funny because even GTA 4 on full worked just wine without OC, than OC with EVGA.

i'd just slide the core,and power limit to max (1100) and not touch any voltage. run a bench like 3DMark11 and see if it passes without glitched (artifacts ot driver crash). if it does glitched - just up the voltage of the core a tad (tiny bit).

reset core and do the same procedure with the memory (1575). once you get those to work, then reset both at their oc settings (1100/1575) and test some more.

NOTE: watch the temps closely. may have to increase fan profile to around 50% to keep the temps below 70C or lower.

Yeah like rdr09 suggested.

I have multiple programs I use to test stability such as 3DMark, Heaven, and OCCT.

With OCCT you can have error detection on and gradually raise clocks and when you start getting errors then start raising the voltage.

Once you find a good value with no errors for say 15-30min or longer then go on to using 3DMark and Heaven.

After those are good you can test real games because some games can be sensitive to overclocking/stability.

Take your time, dont crank the voltage more than you need. thumb.gif

Also make sure your power option is at 20%, you can also play with this value if you'd like but this option helps if your card starts throttling.

See when I overclocked it to those numbers, without running any bench or anything, most of my games laggs as hell. Could it be glitches with my software ?

you mean your games do not lag when the gpu is at stock?

Yeah, when I don't play with it and just leave it as it is, everything seems to run quite well. When I changed it to what you said, games just lag and quite a lot of them like Fry Cry 3, Sleeping dogs etc. Quite weird, need to get everything sorted because it works now but the FPS is not that great to be honest. I think I need to get 3.0 PCI Express MoBo and reinstall my windows with this card.

First you have to rule out that its software problem first. This is done by checking that your old video card drivers have been uninstalled/cleaned. Use Driver Fusion if you'd like. Also make sure onboard graphics via BIOS (so it doesnt reserve ram). Uninstall AMD drivers, use driver fusion, reboot and install latest catalyst drivers.As well as installing latest chipset drivers.

Overclocking wont help if the card if its not running properly or as it should.

in BF3 MP 64 my fps went down to the low 50s when my i7 SB was at stock. this was with my 7950 at stock, which is always is in games except metro. at 4.5GHz and still the 7950 stock, my minimums were mostly above 60s. is your intel speed step turned on in bios? not sure if you have that setting. if it is - turn it off - as well as all the other power saving features. i never suffered any lags, though, even if my chip is at stock. weird.

edit: check your temps using HwInfo64 like this . . .



edit2: btw, have you read this . . .

@DamianGrunwald, I do not know whether some help, but I used "driver sweeper" software before installing the new driver/s.

http://www.techspot.com/downloads/4266-driver-sweeper.html

If you uninstall the drivers through the control panel, may remain some registry files that cause problems.

I use this method on Windows 7 x64, I hope it will help You.
