I recently bought a 6970 and all was good and have been gaming for over a week now and decided to try some overclocking so launched atitool while at default speeds to note the fps and the moment i clicked scan for artifacts the window opened up filled with artifacts. I set the fan to 100% to be sure it was not too hot an no effect, i under clocked to 500mhz with the fan at 100% and the artifacting was reduced it's still there and really bad yet on several days i have have spent multiple hours solid in game without a singe issue or artifact and great frame rates. Surly if he card was bad 4+ hours solid gaming would show some kind of sign? i get no artifacts on furmark either and this has me kind of concerned because if i do have a bad card but it is only showing with a single program would standard RMA testing catch it? but also if only atitool is giving me errors could it just be an issue with the software? I'm currently running occt to see if that comes up with any errors but this has me rather worried, but also if it's just an issue with atitool that makes me sad as i have enjoyed using it for many years. Has anyone else had this issue? or have any advice for me? *edit* Ran occt for an hour with 0 errors, I'm almost ready to assume it's just atitool failing me.
