Hi there. I just bought a new rig, and got this vid card, when I start a game (currently Dishonored) on max settings it runs beautiful, after about 30 mins the game freezes, so I alt tab out then go back in but the framerate drops a bit, but it still quite playable, just not flawless like it did. The card runs at 51c before it freezes so I cant imagine its to hot, I got the fan speed at max, the power at 20% (max it will go) and the memory clock and performance clock at 100%. After the card obviously clocks down and is only running at 1 3rd and is even cold to the touch settings say 30c at this point, the game still has a framerate lower than what it is during the first half hour, anyone know why its not running the way it should. yesterday for some reason it decided to stay at more than half clock speed and ran great, don't know why my cards making its own decisions. Thx for any info :)

hey there,

have you tried updating your video card's drivers? also, have seen any error messages that pop up when that happens? (i.e. display driver stopped responding)

I got no error messages at all, just seems my GPU downclocks for no reason. I can still play any game, it just wants to play way lower than im allowing it to, and I don't think its overheating, 50c for this card should be fine. cpu and hdd are all at good temps. I did update windows 8 and all vid card drivers to the latest.

it could be the fact that Dishonored doesn't require too much from the GPU and in this case, the GPU running at a lower clock speed would make sense.

but, im still thinking it's a driver problem. when you updated your AMD Driver was your GPU overclocking software still installed? (this is a known cause for weird issues with nvidia GPUs)
