What?

It's not an overclock issue. I had the same problem after installing Afterburner the other day on a fresh install of Windows 7. I know my cards will go 925/1425 without issue so that is where I was going to start in Afterburner but it started flickering as soon as I hit apply. The max values in my CCC installation were 840/13xx. I started researching and found that many people have this issue and it seems to be caused by overclocking in Afterburner (or whatever program you're using) beyond the values available in CCC. The registry edit allows you to increase the clocks available in CCC (1000/1500 is what I selected). I have Afterburner at 925/1425 now and no flicker issue.

3. Driver issue?? should not be an issue unless you did not do a fresh windows install with the board change over
Here is just a quick mod i created stock Diamond 6950 bios with 6970 shader unlock only (no clock or voltage changes)
Diamond.HD6950.M2048.S1536.zip 40k .zip file

After some more research, I discovered this is a common issue with the Z77 chipset for some reason. Asus just released a BIOS for their motherboard(s) that corrects the problem. I forwarded the findings to MSI so hopefully it gets addressed soon. Appreciate the ideas regardless smile.gif

You're way off what's actually happening but close enough to almost seem right. The registry edit is racerx, developed by Baggs the guy who wrote radeon bios editor. You're supposed to use racerx with RBE and control voltage thru the bios. This method is seamless to the driver because it stays inside AMD's powersaving tech.

When you enable unofficial overclock method in AB you now have to deal with AMD's Powerplay as well. PP has it's own agenda of what idle/2D/3D/uvd clocks should be and it will enforce then when it can. This causes the flicker when using UOM. UOM is actually a driver hack using a loophole in the driver. AMD has tried to close the loophole since 12.2 and up.

The easy way of getting around the annoyance of Powerplay is to bypass, tell AB not to work with Powerplay.

I didnt use the unofficial overclock fix in the AB config file. It had the same values availabe that were present in CCC before the registry entry (RacerX). Appreciate the info though.

^^That's a good example of typical UOM use. Using AB to overclock beyond Overdrive limits requires UOM.



Note: It was only recently that Unwinder copied racerx by using the registry to enable the use of official overclock mode, aka XCL. However I'd expect one to know the difference if you were running XCL vs UOM.

Dont expect me to know anything lol. No idea what the Unwinder method is.

It's a copy of racerx where you use AB to control clocks. It passes the setting thru AMD's own overclocking process. Unwinder is the guy who writes Afterburner btw.

So what should my fix be..???lol

I didn't even try to oc my 6950 and 6970. Can't afford to replace them if I kill them. I did put the 6970 BIOS into the 6950 though. It's been working great for over a year now (knock wood).
