So I put together my pc today, install windows 7 64bit, do a little browsing and it freezes. Hmm. Hard restart then do a little bit more browsing getting drivers etc.. I get a screen with pixely pink verticals. Hard restart.. something's fishy here. Then I get all the new drivers for my mobo, and gpu. Everything's going fine so I install Eve Online which I've been meaning to play for a while. Get to the character creation screen and the screen starts flickering, then getting worse with flashing verticals of different colors.
Now I search the forums and there seems to be a solution in oc'ing the card to stay above the default idle speeds. I tried it but I don't know if I'm doing it right. I went into CCC and changed it to 860/1210. It's 400/1210 when not in 3d and now it only really does it while in 3d but the screen very rarely still flickers a bit in 2d.
I'd like to hear some thoughts on what my problem is. Keep in mind I barely know what I'm doing hehe.
Here's the list of components I purchased.
AMD Athlon II X4 630 (Propus) 2.8GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quade-Core Processor (Model: ADX630WFGIBOX)
