Ok let me get everything out straight.
Motherboard: Asus m5a97 pro
CPU: AMD fx 4100
PSU: Corsair 600w
RAM: Corsair vengeance 8GB (2x4gb)
GPU: XFX Radeon HD 6790
OS: Win 7 64bit
I have not overclocked this GPU..
Right. All drivers and installed and clearly i have enough power.
If im just using the PC for office use its fine, everything goes smoothly. How ever i want to play games! When running BF3, Warhammer 40k:Space marine or even WoW, im either having BSOD or the Computer will just freeze up all together. More commonly the PC just freezes up.
I just want a fix for this, i've only been using the PC for a week. I've contacted XFX about the problem but haven't had a word out of them.
Thanks to anyone who contributes
Ok guys, my fix, not sure if its relevant, but i've reverted back to 11.5 drivers instead of 12.1 and also flashed my bios with an update suited for my FX processor, seems to have done the trick, thanks for all the help
I have an XFX HD 6790 and at default settings under load it will crash when running Benchmark programs, or under load playing games. I downloaded the program MSI Afterburner utility. I lowered the default memory speed from 1050 to around 1025 and it runs stable now. The catalyst drivers will not let you lower them from the default, only raise them. Suprisingly the MSI utility works on the XFX card. You can raise the GPU speed, but for the memory the only way it is stable is to lower it. I have a support trouble open with XFX as the card is supposed to have a lifetime warranty, maybe they will replace it.
