PhotoShop CS:6 Problems With AMD Vision Engine(7950)

Hi, I just got a copy of CS:6 PhotoShop and Im running into frame Rate Problems with almost every thing inside of PhotoShop, I.E. When I drag a text box with text inside the text will lag behind by 200 millisecond.

What I believe the problem is AMD OverDrive Or the Driver is not recognizing PhotoShop is a Graphic intensive program and thus not increasing the GPU clock to 925 MHz (My OverClock Max).
I tried to follow this guy's directions on how to keep your GPU At Your overclock settings, But it did not work.

If you have any suggestions please leave them below

Have you played any games or anything else gpu intensive. Does it have issues? Your pic shows you at 61C. I assume you weren't doing anything and it's overheating when you are.

What driver version are you using? You may want to uninstall the drivers, run driver sweeper and reinstall new drivers. Maybe the 13.10 beta drivers may work. I know cs6 has more issues than cs5 because it's when they first added opencl. Haven't seen any issues with cc yet though. In photoshop, go to edit > preferences > performance. Does it say 7950 and use graphics processor is checked? In advanced is use gpu to accelerate computation and opencl checked? You can also try changing the drawing mode.

Just in case, but did you check cpu/ram usage and temps of everything else?
