hey guys.. I'm not sure why, but Afterburner and GPU-Z is showing 99% and 100% load while being idle for no reason.. I'm currently using 10.10e on a fresh install of Windows hoping it would cure the problem, but nada..

I've tried 10.12 and 10.12a hotfix before reformatting and still no bueno, same results each time.. When I launch a game or program that uses the GPU's it goes back to normal showing whatever usages its doing.. But after a few mins of being idle its at 100% on GPU-Z and 99% on Afterburner. I've googled before posting and a few other people have the same problem with different cards, but nobody seems to know what's going on..

the temperature remains on 39C GPU clock 100Mhz and Memory clock 300Mhz while GPU load is high, so I'm assuming it could be a sensor problem? any thoughts would be MUCH appreciated..

There is no overclocking, only STOCK! CPU is the only thing overclocked, currently at 3.5Ghz

try a different program such as the EVGA percision. if it still shows the GPU rate at 99-100% then take your GPU out and then put it back in and check to make sure you put in all the cables correctly. If neither of those work and your really up for it I would return the card.

Cheers,
Andrew

Are you folding or using SETI or something?

He has 2 AMD cards, he can't use precision

Try driver sweeper and roll back to 10.11 drivers

Thanks for the quick response guys.

EVGA precision indeed doesnt work/launch for me.

No, I'm not folding or SETI or anything like that. I'm on a fresh install since last night, only STEAM with a few games installs, pretty much it..

I thought 10.11 drivers didnt have 6800's support?

yes, when I install my drivers I usually install with everything minus hydravison.. Maybe that could be it NitrousX? I really don't need everything else?

Nope, all you need are the display drivers + CCC + hydravision (if you have multi monitors).

Yeah. Install the bare minimum when it comes to ATI/AMD. Don't screw up your system any more than necessary with their buggy half-assed software.
