    Hi guys,

    I was overclocking my GPU with Google Chrome open with some youtube tabs. No matter what setting i put on Afterburner or even in Catalyst, the card would always run at stock settings in any game I opened.
    Then I realised it could be youtube the responsible for this downclocking, then i closed the tabs and re-applied the OC, and puff, the card would now run with my OC settings.

    I am using Catalyst 12.3 with XFX HD 6870.

    Any of you are having the same issue?

    I don't have any problem with youtube interfering with my OC when gaming and I have it open quite often while I game.
