With secondary monitor plugged in, yes, perfectly normal.

to test if card is faulty, do not use OC tools or increase voltage, simply set the GPU clock to 850 MHz, and try there. IF it still fails, then try 800 MHz.


If it does not fail @ 850 MHz, to 800 MHz, then the card is for sure faulty, and needs RMA. IF it crashes, I'd still RMA.


There is NO reason to use voltage adjustments to get stability. My cards work perfectly fine, so should yours.

try with lowered clocks, say 850 MHz.

I RMA'd one card, would crash on 3d after some time, but was fine with 850 MHz. 7950 stock GPU is 800 MHz; Windforce cards have factory OC, so perhaps a card or two slipped through binning.

very odd that you get 1.1V on load, BTW. I have had no less than 6 of these cards in my possession, all were 0.95V 3D! I installed the other 4 into systems I sold...hopefully this isn't something with the series itself!

Can you try to install the VGA to a different slot?


Kind of odd you'd get more than one card with same issues.

make sure no system OC(memory and CPU can affect this), try other slots, try other board, try other PSU, try lower clocks, try in other system. Those are your options. :p


if board has newer BIOS, might want to update that, but I haven't had any issues like that. Still possible I guess though.

could be a problem with Kombuster? It doesn't really present realistic GPU load, as far as I know..

How about other apps?

What kind of artifacts? All 7000 series cards have intermittent "black artifacts" that appear for less than a second afaik. Get them all the time on my 7950 in games like Tribes: Ascend.

Articfacts and coil whine usually have nothing do to with each other. I have coil whine now, with no artifacts in a GPU or two.

Try another card. If you have same problem with another card, PSU may be faulty.

If another card is ok, RMA again

onboard video doesnt take any power... so that doesnt help us if its the PSU.

What pSU do you have? Can you create your system specs in USER CP?
