    5970 Overclock Issues - Artifacts

    Hmm i only tested in AC2 as it was the first game i loaded when overclocked and it instantly went mad. Might try again and just do the test with furmark to see if it crashes or not. Maybe AC2 being buggy dont help? Hockster, whats your furmark score as standard? If you happen to know

    5970 Overclock Issues - Artifacts

    Well i just tested my flatmates as i built 2 identical setups. Same scores. You sure it should be over 12000? in furmark? 1500 to 12000 is a massive difference! Im sure i didnt miss a digit *goes to check* 3d vantage gave me 20,000 but that was a trial edition and couldnt run at 1920x1080

    5970 Overclock Issues - Artifacts

    Ok maybe AC2 is a one off but it still gets either massive artifacts or locks up completly when overclocked which is rather annoying. Thought the only reason it was clocked down from the factory was to do with the 300w limit, the fact the card cant run 5870 clocks seems a bit misleading to me...

    5970 Overclock Issues - Artifacts

    I was thinking of RMA'ing the card (not something ive done before so dont even know the process) When i emailed XFX support they told me to RMA it, yet how can i RMA something on the basis it wont overclock? Im using the new BIOS from XFX which solved the fan issue (enabled manual fan...

    5970 Overclock Issues - Artifacts

    850/1200 caused the card to freeze within 5mins and locked the pc up. Problem was then getting the pc to work at all as everytime it booted up it would crash before i had chance to redo the voltages. I know not everycard is the same but the way the card was advertised before it came out i...

    5970 Overclock Issues - Artifacts

    Hey all Ive got a XFX 5970 Black Edition and am using the Overvolt tool to oc the card. XFX support told me that the best stable oc they had was at 900/1200 (up from the standard 725/1000) however whenever i try these settings i instantly upon gaming get massive grey tears up the screen in...

    [Updated]AMD/ATi 2D Clock Guide

    Seems i was too quick to moan. My problem seems to only occur when streaming videos in fullscreen, youtube etc. Playback of blu-rays is spot on. After reading several threads with audio drop out over HDMI i assumed it was the same prob, though with playback of media its fine.

    [Updated]AMD/ATi 2D Clock Guide

    I havent tried a diff cable yet, though only cause id read of the prob and it seeming to be a common one. Will test the cable later and report back, though im guessing its not going to make a difference as if it was the cable, i would experience audio drop outs elsewhere? i.e when playing games...

    [Updated]AMD/ATi 2D Clock Guide

    Hi DRDNA Ive read from various people who have also fixed their audio drop outs using this fix, however it dont work for me. BTW, on default clocks 157/300 i dont have the 2d lockups, or errors/glitches in 1080p videos, is purely audio for me..... in, out, in, out..... grrrr If i use an audio...

    [Updated]AMD/ATi 2D Clock Guide

    Well i thought id sign up as even after reading various posts im still stuck with a problem. My XFX 5970 cuts out audio over HDMI when playing videos in full screen yet i have no probs in games etc. Assuming it was the 2d clocks problem, i made some custom 2d clocks following this thread...
