AMD Overdrive Graphics OC Problem?

Well, I recently bought a Sapphire Radeon 7750 1 GB GDDR5 card. 800Mhz Core and 1125Mhz Memory.

These are my specs :

The only difference is the GFX Card.


Anyways, when I try to OC using AMD Overdrive, no matter how tiny the amount I OC is, the display driver crashes when playing a game. Any fixes? I've tried fiddling with how much I increase the power but to no avail. I OC the Core Clock only. I haven't tried OC'ing the memory and testing a game out yet. I can't right now; I'm not home.

Hi

I would have a go with MSI afterburner, that way you can find out whether or not its a software issue or if you're card is just a lemon when it comes to overclocking.

Well how far are you overclocking? Just bump it up 50 MHz at a time and run a quick kombustor burn in test.

But my card is a Sapphire..... And what's a lemon?

Well, even if I overclock 10Mhz higher and play a game the display drivers crash:/

You can still use MSI afterburner with a sapphire (or any other AIB brand) card.

You don't know what a lemon is? :heink:

Aw come on. I'm not a genius, even if I did put my system together, that doesn't mean I should know everything :3

Yeah, that's true.

Sometimes people call graphics cards (or CPU's) that don't overclock very well lemons, all I was implying before is that if your problem with overclocking isn't caused by a software problem the problem may be that your graphics card is a bad overclocker. :kaola:
