    Had exactly the same problem.
    This is what I did:

    Steps:

    1. Open CCC

    2. Unlock and Enable Overdrive if they aren’t already.

    3. Go to Options/Profiles/Profiles Manager. Create a new profile. Under composition make sure “ATI Overdrive” is checked. Save and Close, DO NOT ACTIVATE.

    4. In windows go to: C:\Users\{yourusername}\AppData\Local\ATI\ACE\Profiles (you will need to have “show hidden files” turned on for this)

    5. Open the xml document with the name of the profile you just created (notepad is fine)

    6. Change the values of the Clock and Memory speeds to look like this (these specific values are what worked for me and my card, use judgment) EDIT ONLY THE BOLD VALUES.



    Feature name="CoreClockTarget_0"

    Property name="Want_0" value="40000"

    Property name="Want_1" value="60000"

    Property name="Want_2" value="85000"

    Feature

    Feature name="MemoryClockTarget_0"

    Property name="Want_0" value="90000"

    Property name="Want_1" value="90000"

    Property name="Want_2" value="120000"



    7. Save and close. Go back to CCC and activate the profile you just created.

    This will make the card idle at 400core, 900memory. (2D clocks are the "Want_0" values)

    Conclusions/Observations: My system has been completely stable for 4 days now, whereas before I would get 2-3 crashes each day.



    I know this was long, but after much searching in these forums, I figured I should share my experience and solutions and hopefully help someone with the same issues.

    and...

    Iff you want to use the MSI afterburn tool you have to follow these steps:

    1- Go to c:/programfiles/MSIafterburn
    2- open the config file in notepad
    3- make sure that custom clock is set to 1
