Hello, I can't even use the overclock on my 7870 without my screen getting artifacts and coloured lines and black screens. The card works fine when clocked down to stock speeds, but I paid for an overclocked card.

Thanks for your help!

Not entirely sure why the card cant support the factory overclock, I guess take it back to where you got it and get a replacement.

I have the Sapphire HD7870, and have overclocked fine.
Here's the settings if you want them (Using MSI Afterburner)
Core Voltage: 1237mV
Power limit: 0%
Core Clock: 1150Mhz
Memory Clock: 1375Mhz (equates to 5500Mhz in reality)

That is running stable for me with no noticeable artifacts or oddities. Though of course, the limits of overclocking is individual to every card.

I'm planning to test it out on a different computer to see if the problems continues. If so I'll ask for a replacement.
