6950 CF BSOD with AB and Trixx

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I have 6950 crossfire with 11.4 and if I overclock in CCC to 840/1325 it is stable. I use win 7x64 and have one powercolor 6950 and one sapphire 6950. The crossfire is stable and I have played AVP and DA2 with it fine. If I use AB 2.1 Final OR Trixx and change any settings (even if I just select reset) my computer crashes. With Trixx I disabled ULPS and it still wouldn't work. Also I have uninstalled AB/Trixx and my drivers and reinstalled them and that didn't work either.

I do not have experience with Trixx. But may I ask what are you using AB for?

I want to overclock my 6950s more than CCC will allow.

Honestly, my advice would be to stay away from AB when overclocking in crossfire. I banged my head against the wall multiple times trying to make AB work when overclocking in crossfire. It just did not want to play nice...So now, the only use for AB is to just monitor temps and such. Rest is all done at CCC. You can easily increase the limits of CCC to overclock.

EDIT: http://www.overclock.net/ati/923129-...l#post12529037

Go to the link in Compudaze's post. The registry entry you see, copy that into a notepad. Repeat that same entry again in your notepad. This time, change the 000 to 001 as you have two cards. Basically should look like this:

Code:

Save the file as .reg and merge it to your registry. Reboot and you have increased limits.

I got 900/1350 using the above hack on stock volt. I could have gone more than 900, but decided that was a good overclock for me. If you want voltage control, then you will need Radeon Bios Editor to set the voltages in your own BIOS. My recommendation though is to first try the above and see how far you can go with stock voltage. Also, make sure you have ULPS disabled.

My goal is 880/1350 so if I can reach that on stock volts I will be satisfied. I'm going to reformat my computer (just because I guess) and then I will try this. I only need to disable ULPS if I mess around with volts right? Thanks for the help man this looks like exactly what I needed.

Try exiting CCC (through task manager). I used to have this issue with 5850 CF, where if I overclocked beyond CCC limits with Afterburner it would crash or go weird, so I always closed CCC before doing so.

You need to disable ULPS if you're using Trixx/AB to overclock when using CF. I'm not sure if disabling ULPS is needed if you're using the CCC hack to go above normal CCC limits. Awaz?

I closed CCC through Task Manager whenever I used AB or Trixx. I also used Trixx to disable ULPS and after doing that the program still crashed. I reformatted my PC so I can try those programs again or I might just use the registry edit. Do you guys use GPUTool to test for stability?

Real world gaming is the best test. You're stress testing your GPU AND you're playing a game. What more could you ask for?
