Yours is a 1GB right?
Yeah,but how it shows way to much scores on techpower?

10.4's I believe and while running Furmark the OC will hold and like 5 minutes into the stability test it seems to drop down to stock speeds.

Try updating your drivers to 10.7-10.8 and lets see if anything changes.

So, I use afterburner and took my 5850 to 850/1200 on stock voltage. Furmark runs just fine no problems. However, when I boot certain games, Titan Quest, Evil Genius, or the OCCT GPU test they just crash when they hit the main menu. Any suggestions? I've tried upping the voltage.

They all load and run fine the minute afterburner is closed, but with it running they crash.

EDIT: I am using profile switching in afterburner as well. Without profile switching OCCT and the games run fine.

Yes it is. Are you talking about system stability or graphics stability?

Try it with all profiles set to the same Memory speed and see what happens.

Well, looks like you are correct. Furmark, CoDBO, run just fine with the profile switching setup for 2d= stock and 3d = 850/1200. OCCT, Titan Quest, Evil Genius, crash when the mem speed is changing.

Any workaround suggested or just manually apply overclock on games where it matters before I play? Thanks to AB that is a two click process so I don't mind, but would prefer automatic.
