How To: Overclock Your AMD / ATi GPU - Page 26

post #251 of 644
I overclocked my 5850 TOXIC to 785 / 1175. Everything is fine when i'm playing games, but when i wanna watch stuff on flash player, e.g. youtube, my com hangs and i get the BOSD. When i reset the settings back to stock, it's fine.

My processor and rams are stock. i5-750, 4GB, 500W power supply

anyone can help?

The latest flash player 10.1 has built-in hardware acceleration. This uses the 3D clock speeds, not 2D, for some reason so Afterburner profiles won't help. There is a bug in the ATI drivers that will cause crashes when overclocking some 5850 cards past 775/1125 and playing flash videos with this new hardware acceleration.

The solution is to either keep your clocks at 775/1125 or disable the flash hardware acceleration by right clicking on a flash movie and going to Settings.

It's gotta be my luck cause whenever I take a gamble on something I either, 1) get banished to the couch for a night or two, 2) lose a lot of money or 3) lose couch due to prior money loss and end up banished to the living room floor.

Flash hardware acceleration uses your GPU to decode video faster and take load off your processor. It's good in theory, but this driver bug is a pain for us overclockers.

However, with a decent computer and with the types of flash videos that you are likely to play, it doesn't hurt much to disable the acceleration. Adobe is gearing up for a big overhaul with Flash 11 which should incorporate better, more uniform hardware acceleration for more things on more operating systems. It's too bad for them that HTML5 is making Flash obsolete :-P

Hi Guys, I need some advice about WC for my video card, Do you think that a single 140mm Radiator could keep my temps in a safe range? How about a Crossfire with that radiator?
Thanks!

For sure you will be good to go with 1 card. I am actually gonna put my 5870 under a 120mm single rad here as soon as the block comes in (probably early next week) I will post temps in my build log after the install, so if you are curious check it out, might help you in your decision

Thanks for the answer, I'm just researching/learning about WC because I OC'ed my card yesterday, btw this tutorial is awesome, my temps are "fine" (60ºC), but to keep that temp my stock cooler is spinning at 4000 Rpm under load (sound's like a hairdryer ) , so I finally decided to go for WC.

Yea dude my card is crazy loud to And under 100% load @ 1Ghz core it goes up to around 80C at stock volts...

Expecting to load around 50C or less with my BI GTX 120mm... hopefully in the 40s but we'll see...

I tested that 120mm rad with my 1055T OC'ed to 4.1ish adn with WB on my NB OC >3Ghz in the same loop and under full prime load that little rad was able to keep the CPU around 62C or something... cant remember (all this documented in build log)... so I would think that it would do very well with a single GPU... I mean 6 cores @ 4.1 full blast and a HOT NB I would think would put off way more heat than a single hot CPU but I dunno... we'll see next week!
