Did you try to reboot?

Does it come to the same effect?

are you running the latest drivers 13.2 beta 6 or 13.2 beta 7. if your card artifacts return and get replacement from ncix.

OK so got the new one, now im noticing something weird, very weird, after i installed COD, played a bit i notice in my CCC - that my GPU USAGE is 100% :/ jumps from 62-97% constantly, and my gpu clock and memory clock are always at max, weird .... my GPU is at 64 degrees constantly its like something is pushing it but i cant tell what after 2 mins again i see some artifacts ... maybe PCI slot or maybe a virus

maybe a software bug, going to go to 13.2 b7 and report back, uninstalled cod incase something within it causing the issues ... this is getting bad, i will test out another pcie slot after hopefully its not the pci-e

OK so, first sorry for the tripple post ... just wanted to let everyone know that i think the beta drivers fixed it for me ? weird? right ... but i think it was a bug everyone was experiancing (or just a lot of people considering i did the research and thats what lead me to believe after being an idiot and running to NCIX swapping out hte card ... that it was the software issue)

Glad you got it fixed, I was going to say increase your power setting in CCC %5, %7, %10, ect untill it stops fluctuating. I need %5 on my card and some people need %20 to stop it.

Your card is a boost card correct?
