Edit ( wouldn't let me edit original post )

Downclocked meaning when I manual downclock, not the auto downclock it does on its own ( which is 400/1200 for this card )

As title says, whether I use CCC or my Asus SmartDoctor, when changing the GPU or memory manually my non-primary monitor flickers, either when I drag something on it ( ie. move the CCC or SmartDoctor ). When I change even 1 Mhz it does this. Is this a driver problem? If it is 1Mhz I'm guessing it's not the hardware. I didn't see this in the patchnotes anywhere unless I missed it.

Any fixes to this?

I finnaly got my Corsair HX1000W in the mail and everything is working like a dream, now I'm concentraiting on OC'ing everything.

Thanks in advance

Ok I think i found the culprit.

Asus SmartDoctor. When I close it out, I don't get the flicker while overclocked/underclocked. So sending info to Asus, see what they can do about it. ( no voltage increase for now)
