Brilliant bit of software, crashed my HD 5870 straight away!


I'll try it again when AMd and Futuremark have released a patch and compatible drivers.
I had a black screen in the physics and combined CPU and GPU tests, I'm on CCC 10.10e, switched to a different windows 7 installation on the same PC (fresh, with all windows updates applied and another version of CCC -10.9 I guess) and all tests ran perfectly. I hope that helps anyone with problems.

Got around 4400P, see my sys specs.

A Q9650 @ 4.0Ghz and ATI HD5870 with latest drivers running Win7 with all latest updates and latest DirectX. Sorry shipmate but there is nothing wrong with my PC, shitty coding and beta testing by Futuremark maybe.

On the physics tests, I thought my PC froze to death, but after a couple of seconds it just continued the testing. So I think is bad programming....

It means your CPU is unstable.. just barely as it continued to run. Give it a small bump in voltage and it should take care of the problem.

Everything is on default setings. I've overclocked neither the CPU or GPU. Not even RAM.;)

Never had any other problems with it. How can it be unstable? :eek:

Did some RAM and GPU stress tests just to be sure, no pbs...

Q6700@3.33Ghz and ATI HD5850 with latest drivers and running Win7 etc. No problems for me.

As Erocker said, your rig is unstable.

Is it the black screen when doing the physics test?
Noup, just loading times were longer. I thought the PC froze, because of no HDD traffic...:eek:
