I found this problem when playing diablo 3.

I have a 7850 and when I OC it over 1050 (the default OC limit) the game will randomly crash and also ill have lag spikes. If it is at 1050 or lower I get no problem.

I know my OC is stable because I also play BF3 and I never get any problem with an OC over 1050.

Anyone else can confirm this?

Thanks

Different game with different requirements.
Just because it is stable in one does not mean it's a stable overclock, just like how you can run windows on a OC'd cpu fine all day then as soon as you stress test it then you get a BSOD ;) 
If it is working at lower settings in Diablo 3 then I would suggest just running it at those settings.

When playing Diablo 3 There is no point of Overclocking the 7850 since stock 7850 will max it out. So I would leave it on at stock when playing Diablo 3 and overclock it when playing other programs and games such as Battlefield 3.

+1 no point in OCing that card for Diablo 3. It is like bringing a crotch rocket to a bicycle race.

Im aware that there is no point in OC the 7850. Even on stock if vsync is enabled the gpu is not 100% used.

Just wanted to see if others have the same problem.

Thanks for the reply

Hi goombaxiv,

I have the same problem, D3's randomly crashing/freezing specially when there is a large mob spawning. Everything works fine if I just leave my GPU to stock, but when I OC my GPU that's where the problem starts.

This is what I did to solve the problem.
Check your AMD drivers first, if it is 12.4 uninstall it and use 12.3 drivers, I read from some random forums that D3 is not fully supporting 12.4 drivers at the moment.

As of now, I am playing D3 on my 7850 @ 1190/1475 with no issues at all.

I hope what I did can help you solve your problem as well.

Regards

Edit: Typo at the clocks :)
