I also started making sure my CCC overdrive settings were correct along with MSI AB. I am on 13.12whql drivers though so i don't know what the deal is with the betas yet. I heard they have power issues that are broken?

I am now able to OC my cards better and they have been rock solid for benching. I will up my CPU OC when i am done benching and see if it was also a factor.

Also when i was testing 14.3 beta drivers i kept having issue with random monitor losing signal and going black screen, it was wierd.

I am using 13.12, and my cpu is on stock right now ram is at 1333 or 1600 too.
did not touch CCC overdrive. using the AB setting that does not restart the driver while applying clocks.

If you mean me, i am not mad really at betas so much as, Still having to sit on 13.12whql drivers from like Dec 18th 2013. 5months is a long time for dealing with drivers that work except broken vsynch. Sadly 14.3 was actually one of the better beta drivers release so far.

It's great that prices are dropping and would hope most people are wary enough to pick up NEW cards and not someone else's mining trash. They drove the prices up for months and now trying to unload their abused, overworked cards. There are deals out there to be sure, but I certainly wouldn't want one that has been mined with. I picked up a used 7970 before this mining craze really kicked in. Thought it strange to have a underclocked, under performing bios. Once flashed to a standard bios the card was incredibly unstable and overheated easily. Put the old bios it came with back on and sold it back to a miner.

I think my first 290x was a ex miner card because i asked the seller and he said he'll have a few more in a couple of weeks but so far the card has been stable other than my OCing and a single BSOD due to drivers
