    Hi i got to report a bug which caused a extrem crash for me.

    I watched a Video on Youtube, and started GPU-Z.
    When GPU-Z was loading it seemed like it locked up. So i tried ctrl+alt+del but nothing happend. Music kept playing. Then my screen became black, music stopped and the GPU fan ran at 100%, then my screen went into idle mode and didn't wake up anymore. I had to push the reset button.
    Uefi reported that it tried to reboot multiple times which kinda scared me because i never had such a message from UEFI before.

    I never had such an issue before. Now when i start GPU-Z it seems to work, but while loading it seems to slow down the system for example music will be "slow" for the moment when GPU-Z loads although i have a good system. When i started GPU-Z for the first time after this crash it told me that the crash happend when loading Open CL.

    Here are my specs:

    Asrock z68 Pro3
    Core i5 2500k
    Sapphire AMD 7850 2GB
    4GB DDR3
    Win 7 x64

    Also: GPUZ seem to have a bug when reading my clockrates(happens with any driver). The clockrates it reads are incorrect. It reads the clockrates of the OC version of my card although my card isn't a OC Version and runs at stock settings.

    can you post a screen shot og gpu z?

    i think flash crashed you system. do you use fire fox?

    sometimes my opera crashes when i use youtube or am viewing facebook photos.
    i also heard someones system crashing andshowing gpu fault like symptoms, but was later identified to be a flash problem.

    I use Chrome. Also: look at my Clockrate. It shows 920/1250 that are the clocks of the OC Version. But i do not own the OC Version and my Card runs at stock 860/1200. I think it may be related and caused by reading the bios. I know that there are a lot users right now who have a Black Screen Bug in games. But i never had that. When starting GPU-Z it happend for the very first time.
