Does anyone else have issues with voltage changes on their card? If I try to up my voltage using MSI Afterburner I get pixel errors on my screen - almost like the "snow" you see on older TV's. I haven't tried letting it stay for more than a few seconds in spite of frying my card
It may be a bad card, actully. Sounds like it's artifacting. Try turning up the fan to 100% then apply some voltage. Can you provide a screenshot/validation please

Exit CCC and then try.

Turn off power saving mode for your cards in windows registry. Google it

Thank you. I will try that and as Razi3l suggested turning of CCC altogether too.

Yeah it's definitely artifacting. It's behaving really weird - the first 5 to 10 seconds after entering a game, my card artifacts like crazy, even on stock clocks. But after the few seconds, it's like it has never happened.
I went to do some experimenting - increasing the voltage while I had some 3D application running (such as ATiTool), and the artifacts would not appear. Even when I closed ATiTool, it would be perfectly fine. But if I changed the settings while I had nothing running, it would look really messed up.

Also when I have my cursor at the clock/tray area, my cursor artifacts like crazy and vibrates. Even if I add another monitor to the right of my main monitor it will only do it in that area of the screen. I even reinstalled Windows and it's still doing it.

I kinda hope it's a bad card since I originally wanted to get a 6870, but the place I bought it from were out of stock with 6870's. So if I can return it, that'd be awesome.

Thanks guys

Haven't really played with it too much but I don't see these cards getting much over 1000mhz on the core unless under water or with better cooling.
For now my 6850 has only been stable up to 930mhz. I'm quite disappointed. I'll keep trying to see if I can bump it up to 950mhz+

My card never artifacts, it only crashes when its unstable. But I have noticed that increasing the voltage does virtually nothing for stability.
