I have a HD4850X2 and i don't have any driver issues,though i use the old 10.5a because they work better for Bad company 2...Do you play BC2?
I heard the VRM's get hot when overclocking,anyone knows about that matter?
Yes, I play Bad Company 2, a lot, and trust me, use those drivers I gave you together with latest CAP profiles!
Those drivers are the best for the 5970 on BC2!
Hope I helped you, if you need any help, let me know.

You must have had a bad mount then, because even the VRM's improved by about 10ÂºC on my HD5970 compared to stock cooler.
