7870 Crashing/Artifacting

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I had two 7870's running in crossfire, but was having some problems. So, I decided to test the cards one by one. The MSI 7870 OC was fine, no crashes or artifacting. But the MSI HAWK 7870... Withing about 10 minutes of gameplay, it crashes in Natural Selection 2, or Artifacts like crazy in Bad Company 2. The card was at stock clocks (1100/1200) and never went over 75 degrees before crash. I did overclock a while back, but very very mild and only for Benchmarks. (1150/1300). I've tried changing drivers, Changing ram sticks, and re seating the card. Any tips would be great.

Thanks, TheLightBulb

Crashes at stock clocks?

Hawks seem to be bad for this
