    Had something very odd happen in Skyrim but not image corruption while using the 13.2 beta 3s.
    The screen flickered black while heading in the directioin of Winterhold from Dawnstar in a blizzard, then the frames dropped a bit and vsync shut off.

    Carried on, frames started to comeback to normal but there was still screen tearing.
    While this was going on the fans started to ramp up too.

    For three minutes I kept pushing my way east and again the screen flickered black, then vsync came back on and fans went back to normal speed.

    It was almost as if the drivers were going to crash.

    Once I had done my thing at Windhelm, I walked back through where the situation occured and nothing.
    Smooth as butter.

    So all I can put it down to is a beta bug since I have never had this issue happen in Skyrim before.

    strange My Acer P243W on DVI-D can go 1920x1200 75hz and is limited to 60hz when plugged on DVI-I... weird ... and since it bug hard when 1920x1200 60hz i got some surprise (decaying image ... blackscreen "input not supported" and such...

    oh well with EDID override patch + CRU i can force 1920x1200 75hz but only on DVI-D and its the only setup stable with that one ... (reference : my signature xD now i know why it was sold so low)

    @ Chevalr1c

    Checked out your update on the first post- very nice! :toast:

    How about adding a Y/N column listing whether or not the GPU is crunching?

    Here's my updated list:

    1x 6870 Hawk
    2x 7870
    3x 7770

    They all crunch too! :D

    Good idea. Not all GPU crunchers may do this in a "dedicated" sort of way, though, but those could still get a "Y". :)

    Just noticed my PC being rather noisey... Narrowed everything down to it being the fan on either one or both fans on my GPUs going bad,

    Obviously this is nothing new to squirrel cage coolers like these. but its sad that they have decided to go south when im getting ready to replace both GPUs in a few months time.

    only place selling them is a seller from the U.S on ebay, now i gotta wait at least a month for it to arrive on standard delivery.

    @ GreiverBlade: IIRC DVI-D supports upto 120Hz and DVI up to 75Hz.

    HDMI is capped at 60Hz, no matter what. That why multi monitor, 3d and pro gaming 120Hz setups run off DVI-D or DP ;)

    I adjusted the tables, would GPU crunchers please be so kind to state whether they crunch, and on what cards?

    That is really impressive :respect: :rockout:
    I'm usually between 36-39 on my cards while crunching, depending on what my A/C is set to. Not too shabby but not quite as cool as yours.

    Its a combination of that 240mm monsta rad and winter. My ambient will go up by about 10c by late june.

    7970's clocked this high are beastly. I just wonder how my overclock will compare against the 8970. I do not feel I will have a need to upgrade for a few gens though.

    Gotta love the low ambient. Idaho is likely colder than FL ;) awesome regardless

    I was planning on the 8970 (or 2) but now I'm not too sure... We will just have to wait and see. I mean, it won't be necessary but it's not always about that :laugh:

    900MHz on the core of a HD 5770 without bumping the voltage isn't something unheard of, isn't it?

    My 5870 is starting to sqeal like a pig too. I'd like to find either a cheap reference cooler or good aftermarket. Then again, it should still be under the XFX "forever" warantee, I should check!

    good point, but last time i contacted XFX support - they wanted me to RMA my GPUs just because I wanted to replace the TIM on the heatsink and dismantle the cooler for a good dusting.

    Im beginning to hate companies that have different warranties for different regions. They allow coolers to be removed in the South Americas without voiding warranty but doing the same thing here in Europe voids warranty. What sort of bullshit is this?

    Im sick of warranties like that

    I updated the list. :)

    Techtard, I did not add the HD 5850 to the list unless you are going to keep it as a spare or so (I assume you are going to sell it). If I need to stand corrected, let me know.
