I have not found my system to suffer performance while gaming when using afterburner only, as I only use it to over clock my gpu.
and I do not use rivatuner and don't even install it.

i didn't mean people as in you i just meant people in general, i apologize.

I do not remember ever having a problem with Riva Tuner, however, I used to use ATI[something or other], never had issues with it either with ATI video cards.

About 3 years ago or so, when the ATI R9 290 came out, I was using MSI Afterburner and had no problems, however, now I own an MSI GTX 980 Ti Lightning LE and find that some games, like World of Warships, had problems and sometimes my computer would lock up while playing that game, it did not effect every game, however, a locked up computer is serious.

With the latter problem I thought it may be a driver issue and updated the latest one, at the time, and it did not fix the problem. I decided that possibly the driver was not loading properly, or completely. I found that if I give the computer a couple of extra minutes before entering the game I have no problem. I do not know if this is a problem with game code vs drivers vs Windows Registry vs MSI Afterburner and GeForce 980 Ti - I do not know. After I found a solution I went no further trying to determine exactly which of the above had anything to do with my problems.

A side note, I do not purchase the most expensive hardware, but DO purchase high quality PSU and motherboard, suited to overclocking and long life.

My System [in part]

Intel i5 3570K @ 4.0GHz to 4.4GHz [temps do not rise above mid to upper 50s C while running a benchmark to stress the CPU]
Noctua NH-C14 140mm x 2 SSO CPU Cooler
MSI GTX 980 Ti Lightning LE
Gigabyte Z77X-D3H motherboard
PSU: Seasonic Platinum series 660 watt
Cooler Master HAF 922 case with an extra 200mm fan in the door.

Does that mean you have the latest Crimson Control centre with the last WHQL drivers?
