    Are you sure it's a Coolermaster HD 6950 ! CM isn't a GPU distributor you know.

    Are you getting vertical lines and strange artifacts ?
    Check if your GPU is overheating.

    Use the software I linked above ( HWMonitor) and check the temps.
    Usually it's a problem related with overheating, or it could either even be due to that the video card is dying.
  2. What kind of monitor?

    Ok first:

    Newcomer = 1 word
    A lot = 2 words
    Dropped has 2 P's.

    There's no such video card as Colormaster, either it's a PowerColor or Coolermaster. As far as I know Coolermaster does not make video cards.

    So...have you installed the latest drivers for your HD6950 from AMD.com?

    What monitors do you have?
  4. He said COLORmaster, not COOLERmaster :P Where does that brand come from?? Fisrt time I´ve heard of it, lol.
  5. ok lotta typos happens when drunk sorry for that, yes its powercolor one I droped, using 3 AOC e2343F 23' led's all the drivers are upto date and not its not overheating
