post #3811 of 3890
much like BlueScreenView from http://www.nirsoft.net/ for CPU BSOD's as an example, is there a application similar to it for GPU's or 6900's?

On my system, I had to rip out the second card, and run some uninstall software that was provided by AMD specifically because the drivers wouldn't uninstall properly. Once the first card was finally working properly I installed the second card again and got it working. I haven't updated my video card driver since, and to tell you the truth I'm afrid to because I don't want to spend all that time trying to correct the problem again.

Let us know if you figure it out.

When you uninstall the drivers, it's pretty much mandatory to run something like driver sweeper after. I'm on my phone so not sure if this previously mentioned or not. I haven't had any issues the last year and half from my crossfire 6950s

atiman tends to do a better job of cleaning drivers from what I hear.

Actually, it's not.I have replaced cards of various brands over the years without issue, even ATI cards. However, there are times when something is different. I can't put my finger on it, but during those times it doesn't matter how many times you run software like Driver Sweeper and cc sweeper (which I did, and still have installed), the new driver still won't install properly. This is why I had to use the information provided by AMD to get the old drivers out, because Driver Sweeper (and other similar software) wasn't doing the job.

For a year my software updates were perfect (multiple years of you count the 4870s I had before the 6970s). A new driver would come out, I'd install it and there would be no problem even without uninstalling the old driver. Then, one day, I let Windows Update install an updated driver, and after that there was nothing but problems. Drivers would either not install properly or if I did manage to get the driver updated, ccc wouldn't update. For a while I was running an older ccc version and a newer driver. I was considering reinstalling Windows when someone posted a link to AMD instructions to uninstall old drivers in this forum. That got a new beta driver installed, and I haven't updated since.

I'm also a little tired of some of the glitches that seem to be showing up in some games with these cards (like Skyrim). I don't know of there's any politics involved in these glitches, or who's fault the glitches are, but I do know I don't seem to read about people with nVidia cards complaining about them. Of course, I own a Samsung 120Hz monitor now, and from what I hear nVidia has been going out of their way to try and make sure this monitor won't work with their cards (which is a real a-hole thing to do) so I may end up not purchasing nVidia (this is a rare case where the monitor was actually worth as much as a high end video card)

Very nice. Unfortunately, I'm afraid to use it. My system is working nice right now. I'll try it next time I need to update.

Was wondering if you guys have tried the 13.1 driver on your 6970s? More specifically do you have better gpu scaling in Borderlands 2 in crossfire in 12.10 vs 13.1 when catalyst AI is on with medium quality setting? I have noticed that on my cards. Wondering if others have noticed the same or even had BL2 crash multiple times on 13.1?
post #3818 of 3890
just got my accelero pluss 2 on my new 6970 since the other one died...and it seems i am actually getting higher temps than the reference cooler...this does not seem normal
post #3819 of 3890
well i thought it might be the tim so i removed the main part of the cooler and cleaned the gpu and heatsink and put some artic silver on it and now my temps are even worse

50 idle and like 90 with furmark

Hi guys

I want to add a HDTV to my computer (I have a blu-ray player and want to make the PC a HTPC as well as a gaming PC).

Here is a dupe of an email I sent to Sapphire support:

"Hello

I have owned a HD6950 and a HD6970 for a little more than a year and have been loving them so far.

Now I would like to connect an HDTV.

Currently I have 2 monitors:

1: Samsung 27" 120Hz 3D monitor that must use the DVI-I dual-link port.

2: ASUS 27" LCD that is currently using the DVI-D port.

3: HDMI TV

I know that the HDMI port and the DVI-D port seem to share a clock or something, and I can only use the TV if my second monitor is shut off.

I would like to be able to use all three without shutting anything off. I have two choices.

1: I can get a mini DP to HDMI adapter cable for my TV. Can you please tell me if DRM and HD audio will work over the mini display port output for blu-rays? If I'm not using eyefinity, but just a 3-display desktop, would I still need an active adapter?

2: I could use a mini DP to DVI adapter for my ASUS monitor, but then can I use the HDMI to my TV without any issues? I would still be using the DVI-I Dual-link output to my 120Hz Samsung monitor.

The card I have is the 2GB HD6970 reference card with HDMI, DVI-D, Dual Link DVI-I and 2 x Mini DP."

They replied telling me to use an active DP to HDMI or DVI, but they didn't answer my questions.

Can anyone tell me if DP will provide audio, and if blu-ray DRM will function properly over display port? If so, then I will purchase an active DP to HDMI adapter.

Can anyone tell me, if I remove the ASUS monitor from the DVI-D connector and use an active DP to DVI cable on it, will my HDTV work over the HDMI port then? I would assume it would, but you know what they say about assuming....

Basically, I need to know if it would be better to use a DP adapter on my HDTV, or on the ASUS DVI monitor. I need the HD blu-ray audio to work.
