Crash while Benching with Sandra

Hello everyone,
With system specs as:

Processor: Intel Core i5 2400
Motherboard: Intel DH67BL B3 stepping
HDD: Seagate 500 GB Barracuda 7200.12 6gb/s
RAM: 4gb 1333 corsair Value select 9-9-9-24
GPU: Sapphire AMD HD6670 1 GB DDR5 [OC'ed--870 (core)/1100(Mem)]
PSU: Corsair VS 450

I ran overall system benchmark with Sandra using catalyst 11.11 and got a 3.93 kpt. Remembering that 12.11 beta had improved performance of some cards, I downloaded that and Sandra failed while benching GPU specfic operations.

I though that maybe it is related to running a "beta" driver and so I removed that and installed 12.10 but it still fails while benching though it is not as bad as with 12.11. i.e it does perform a few more gpu tests before crashing.

error code that I get is 339 (open GL device/render...something..dont remember)

I still have to try benching without the overdrive OC.

I am unable to identify the problem or mistake that I am doing

update: GPU testing fails with default gpu clock and memory settings as well.

update: Catalyst 13.1 is quiet good at least for Sandra Bench. allowed me to OC the gpu (overdrive) to 880/1130 and pushed sandra score to 4kpt.

still get error 339 in gpu arithmetic.

got a solid 6.5 fps in graphics test 4 in 3dMark11.. :D  lol :D  ... but improvement still, used to get 5.8-6 fps earlier.
