I just built my new rig about two weeks ago and it was playing games just fine (i.e Skyrim, Mass Effect 2 and whatnot). Then these black squares started flashing all over my screen during games. The weirder part is that it doesn't happen during loading screens just live game play. I actually bought DriverBoost to detect and install all out of date drivers. Still buggy, updated DX11 still having issues. I'm not having any overheating issues ( idle around 31C gaming about 55C) nor am i overclocking anything. This is becoming very bothersome. I will try to attach screen caps of the issue. The only thing i can think of is either my card is going out OR that this particular driver ATI I/O Communications Processor SMbus Controller is out of date according to my Driverboost although it just will not update. Please any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Are you attempting to do the updates with the driver file, or are you just letting this program fail at doing it itself? Download the latest driver directly, and then the previous one if it still doesn't work. If that fails, clock down some.
