    I don't think Furmark was directly responsible, more the cooling on the cards couldn't handle temps.

    In the CCC. Choose your display, and look under HDTV options.

    1680x1050 aint going to work, thats the wrong aspect ratio.

    i doubt you're the first person to get confused by it.

    It annoys me that it unticks it, simply cause sometimes i forget to write my OC down before updating drivers.

    I tried this overtune thing and my PC just reboots after getting past the 2nd stage so doubt it's all that stable for me to be playing with. Might have to avoid playing with it if its going to do that!

    9.4s seemed to work OK for me. No problems loading after a good uninstall and a run of Driver Cleaner Pro in Safe mode. Then reboot and install 9.4s. A quick run of 3D06 with no adjustments picked up my SM 2.0 Score to 6065 where before I was 5920s constantly before. My post discussing this issue here. This puts me back where the average score for the 2.0 for similar systems are. I then ran the Auto Tune and it worked fine. Never locked up or acted funny in any way. It took my card to 865/940. Not sure what if any difference in the old 9.3 drivers though as I hadn't used this feature on them. That is some serious wierdness to watch sober though. :laugh:

    ? Any tried this new 9.4 on 4870x2 ? (single setup)

    is this (Ati) '' Power-Play'' or what so ever called :) fixed ?
    - i mean this boot/startup when it does not switch back to 2D (desktop) mode ?
    like one of gpu's (mem?) is getting heated up
    - also seen in GPU-z VDDC current readouts and Everest

    just after boot ->
    GPU1: GPU VRM 12.19 A
    GPU2: GPU VRM 25.74 A
    ----
    after load /run / close 3Do6

    GPU1: GPU VRM 9.48 A
    GPU2: GPU VRM 9.48 A
    --
    using sapphire 4870x2 here ..and suffer this bug since 9.x drivers
    (tho, have tried different profile. -xml edit .. things (on Xp 32bit sp3, Vista 32bit)
    but so far no proper fix found .. - only this ..(old trick) by load a 3D app after boot
    -- switches it to 2D - )

    Thanks :)

    You might want to check my HD4830 thread out HERE Another person topping out @ 690MHz core, this is getting way too much to be coincidence.

    Auto Tune got my my 1GB 4870 to 840 core but I'm not too confident that's stable. Can test tonight.

    i've been running 850/960 for a couple months now with zero problems (850 = maxxed slider). attained that core clock the good old fashioned way of trial and error, don't have the patience for autotune.

    havent really noticed any differences with anything with 9.4 though.

    Doesn't matter, thats far from the point. GPUs are meant to be able to handle temps damn near or over 100c, its not healthy, but their supposed to be able to handle it. With cards dying all it points out is sub-par cooling and/or weak / under specced components on the cards.

    techreport blames custom coolers and lack of advice to consumes for ati cards going under.

    And I've seen a few on here say the exact samething. Air flow has always been an issue ever since ati and nvidia brought sli/crossfire to the market. Motherboard makers have been lazy in placement of the pcie slots.

    Lots of targets to point your finger at. :D
