Make sure it's running in full screen for CrossFireX.

hmmm tried all those thing none seem to work nm all other test seem to work fine ecept mark 11 phisics test (programe just crashers) may just be my ATI drivers getting bsod 116 & 24 (current no oc) I believe these are commonly VGA driver related bsod... been having some driver issue on this new build after updating my RE4 bios and my second 7970 was not even recognized in bios or windows had to switch back to the first bios redface.gif i'll just do half uninstall the drivers and see if that works before i go to the effort of a proper uninstall.

I've been using MSI Afterburner and my dual ATI 5870's together for a couple years now. I also have G15 keyboard I use to display the current core clock, memory clock, fan speed... etc. Previously when not using the computer or anything that stressed the video cards I could get the core clock to downclock to 157 MHz and the memory clock to 300 MHz. No issues and everything was perfect.

I just did a fresh reinstall of Windows 7 and now I can't get my 2nd GPU to downclock under 400 MHz and 1200 MHz when idle. I am using the latest stable version of Afterburner and have the latest CCC software, which I had before. I am at my wits end tryiing to figure this out. Any help would be extremely appreciated.

A late reply might be better than no reply at all...

I have the same problem as you (on my overclocked 5970). The solution for me is to open GPU-Z.

That's it. Afterburner acts really strangely. Sometimes GPU0 will be beelining at 725/1000 while at the same time GPU1 is at 0/0 or 157/300. And no XF either.

But as soon as I start up GPU-Z, everything switches back to as it should. Strange. Yes. But it works for me.

Thanks for the reply. I have found somewhat of a workaround or semi-fix which is annoying but it does work. After I restart Windows both my video cards read like this, I am running Crossfire too btw...

GPU 1: 157MHz/300MHz
GPU 2: 400MHz/1200Mhz

The only thing that will allow my GPU 2 to downclock when idle to 157MHz/300MHz is if I run a benchmark or stress test on the GPU's. If I run Furmark for 20 secs and exit out of it both cards will sync together and downclock appropriately, same thing if I run the Unigine Heaven bench.

I am facing a strange problem,
even without OC my GPU, when I run 3DMark 11, CPUz or Vantage my pc freezes and shows weird colors of screen (smtimes white or blue). This became even worse after reinstalling my windows. I could run 3DMark Vantage before reinstalling windows 7.
But I can play Battlefield 3, other games, heavenware benchmark and aqua benchmark fine. Any kind of help us appreciated.

Are you running stock clocks on CPU as well?

Maybe try bumping the voltage on your GPU a small amount?

Hi guys. I'm trying to overclock my 6950, but when I test for stability with GPUTool the activity in Afterburner only goes up to 35%. Shouldn't it be putting more stress on the graphics card to properly test it or is it running fine?
