    My 5870 doesn't like 12.11 at all ... Beta 4 & 6 both giving me black videos in MPC.
    12.10 works fine but ramps my clocks in Firefox a bit much.
    12.8 was good until Firefox blacklisted it.
    Not having much luck recently. :)

    If possible, disable hardware acceleration from within Firefox unless you're already running more than one monitor.

    While the industry standard says 70-80c is safe, it isn't in my books. They should know as well as I do that anything over 60c greatly reduces the part's life span especially when there are big temp swings involved. Also, little is ever said about the collateral damage the cpu/ram/mobo's components suffer when they bear the brunt of all that heat coming off the back of the gpu.

    Maybe I missed it.. but.. have you tried reseating the heatsink ? That alone should knock off 3-5c + .. I never trust the factory TIM. lol

    Check to see if the HSF is sitting flush.

    Update, i unplugged my second monitor DVI, Idle Temps are normal now

    Primary Monitor (HDMI)
    idle core 300
    idle memory 150

    The "Idle" Bug is when u have 2 Monitors Hooked up on ur card, they need to look into that.

    Its not a bug when 2 monitors are used, the clocks are to low to handle 2x screens (get flickering), so they have to be raised :)

    So idle memory at 1200 is normal when 2 monitors are hooked up compared with one monitor with idle memory at 300?

    thye had to start forcing higher clocks on multi monitor setups back with the 5770 cards, the default clocks where to low and caused flickering and all sorts of issues.

    as to the single monitor issue, are you sure its not being triggered by something else your doing like browser with flash open?

    I made some unexpected but positive findings concerning idle clocks and display flickering.

    I recently switched to an asus matrix hd7970 platinum which offers 4 display-port and 2 dvi-outputs.
    In my case 3 monitors are connected via display-port and 1 tv is connected via dvi to this graphics card (running win8x64, catalyst 12.11 beta4).

    Currently I am able to downclock manually to 300 MHz GPU / 150 MHz MEM when idling without getting any kind of display flickering (all monitors and the tv in desktop extend mode).

    When using only the 3 monitors (the tv disabled) in an eyefinity group the card downclocks to 300 / 150 automatically, again with no display errors.

    Although this is a positive behavior I am wondering about it because I was under the impression that these cards need to sustain a higher GPU / MEM clock when idling with multiple monitors...?

    Perhaps this has something to do with all monitors connected via display-port and not mixed with hdmi / dvi...
    ...or it is something special about the asus matrix hardware.

    Has anyone made similar observations?

    Same black screen with MPC and 12.11 here too !
    Disable full/half "Floating point processing" and please report to AMD the black screen problem cause otherwise I'm afraid will see another 2-3 driver releases until this NEW BUG INTRODUCED IN CATALYST 12.11 drivers will be fixed:bang:

    Yup. Reported.
    Went back to 12.10 with Firefox HW acceleration disabled.

    Hmmz you guys are right. After disconnecting my secondary display i finally get normal idle clock speeds. Is there anyway i can force these idle clock speeds when using two screens? Just powering off the secondary screen wont help. I hope they will fix this in the future. Been waiting for months.....

    Omg my powersupply is trowing out cold air wich ive never seen in 3 years i got this system. These low clock speeds make alot of difference. My gpu is running at 27C and used to be around 50C.....

    I got the same gains on my HD 7970 Crossfire. GW2 gained a higher minimun FPS by 2-3. Hey, I'll take it!

    Any HD6950 2Gb users tested this on MOH Warfighter?
    Whats the verdict? :)
