10.5 did fix the dial monitor problem. You also need to flash the bios if you want to have manual fan control.

It's not needed with all cards.
My fan control works just fine and haven't flashed it.

I believe most problems with the reference 5970 has been fixed given that it was released 6-8 months ago.

5970 known problems (known to me)
3D crash
2D Powerplay underclocked flickering 157/300
No Fan controller
flickering in BFBC2
Crossfiring problems
Eyefinity resolutions not recognized by most games
low Windows index score

Most problems have been solved but each individual will encounter problems unique to themselves whereas others will not encounter any problems.

The only problem I have had with my 5970 was the really strange effect of my bank account suddenly bottoming out.

but seriously no problems at all, I even have the eyefinity thing working with a dedicated physX card.

10.4 ati drivers
191.07 nvidia drivers
1.03 physX mod

If its XFX I can almost guarantee you'll need to disable ulps after you install drivers, and you should update to the newer bios if yours doesn't have it so you can control voltage.

''what are the most common 5970 issues?''

The most common ''issues'' with the 5970 are usually sitting between the chair and the keyboard.

Just kidding.

If you want to watercool them and/or get the ''Display drivers has stopped responding but has recovered blah blah blah'', you just have to raise your v2d idle clock values from 137/300 to 400/900 with a CCC profile to get rid of the problem.

My 5970 + 5870 Tri-Crossfire set-up has been rock-stable, not a single BSOD/GSOD/crash/freeze in the last 6 months. The 3 GPUs are OCed to 1000/1200 24/7.
