When I overclock my GPUs over the settings that are provided by CCC, I consistently crash machine when hardware acceleration is on in Flash. Now this is not only when going full screen, but it happens every time, on any size of a Youtube movie.

Is there anything I could do about that aside from waiting for Flash to get an upgrade and maybe the 10.7 Catalyst?

Have you tested your overclocks out? They might be completely unstable. Have you played games?

I've done a stability test with Kombustor, played Crysis, Mass Effect and a long session of Dragon Age, all without problems. Watching part of a 1080p movie with MPC HC also wasn't a problem.

Installed Catalyst 10.7 which replaced 10.6. It didn't help with the Flash issue, although it did increase my Kombustor score fom 18075 to 19876 points (Res:1920x1200(FS) - AA:o ff - PostFX:o N; average of five runs).
