    anyone had a red screen + reboot with this driver package? I had it 10 minutes ago playing Fifa 15, never had one, i'm a little bit worried about my pc health. Can it be driver related?

    Not sure about you guys but Overwatch ran great during the beta. I never drop below 60fps on EPIC settings with this driver. I'm loving the performance of this game. As for other games I see no difference in performance.

    Red screen means CPU is unstable, not GPU. Nothing to be worried about. How much is it overclocked?

    It's not overclocked, it's going to get broken?

    No. Just up the vcore voltage a little bit and see if that fixes it.

    I haven't run any graphic benchmark programs under Firefox in quite a while. I was surprised to see that my Core and Memory clocks do not max out like I'd remember. All the various benchmarks like FishGL, FishBowl etc get crappy framerates as the number of fishes increase because my clocks no longer go to the max.

    Is this a known problems with the Crimson drivers or perhaps the R9 series of cards? I'm on the 16.5.3 drivers.

    i'll try, but i even tried to verify the driver with windows driver verifier and i had a bsod at each reboot. Whocrashed and BSODviewer told the same, the culprit was the amd driver. So i don't know if it's related or not to the red screen...

    I seem to mostly have solved my flickering issues in this and the former driver by disabling hardware acceleration in Chrome.

    That's like putting a band-aid on a wound and claiming there is no wound any longer, but if you're happy with that, I'm certainly not trying to rain on your parade.

    ?

    hardware acceleration is superfluous on modern CPUs.

    unless you are rocking a potato, its useless.

    Just wanted to supplement this with mentioning vram can also be a cause of red screen lock up.
    Source: Common victim of both varieties. 0x00000124 whea_uncorrectable_error/intel processor cache error owns me. But red screen is also easily achieved with vram oc/timing modification.

    That q9650 is very similar to my setup.

    No reason to be mean about it. It was never ment as a permanent solution. It is however ment as a help for everyone to narrow down the problem and perhaps as a temporary measure if you want the performance gains from 16.5.3 but don't want the flicker until it's fixed. You know, helping, discussing, narrowing down issues, like this forum was ment for.

    You're delusional. I made no comment whatsoever that was meant even in the slightest as that. In fact, I went out of my way and typed extra words to make sure you knew I wasn't trying to rain on your parade.

    Now you want the honest truth. You don't fix a computer by ****ing it over.

    Well for me, now Firefox (64bit) is now crashing (Driver stopped responding) on some videos, and Chrome (64bit) is so far OK. Hardware Acceleration ON on both. Of course turning off HW Accel prevents the crash. Gaming is no problem, very smooth on this driver.

    does, in your use case, disabling hw accel have any negative impact on video playback?

    because as mac said already. there is literally no need for hw accel. as long as you're either not running on a potatoe CPU.

    yeah, the video often will not look as smooth, more pixely or maybe blocky, i would have to say. Slightly, but i can notice. I'm pretty much moved on anyway now to Chrome, less issues all around these days.

    Not much, as i said before is un-Mature (i put it in that Light way :bang: )
    We have to remember the History:
    When ATI/AMD has something Really Big is Silent..... then BUM we are Happy.
    But Sometimes is Loud but then is only OK.

    As i stated before NDA for Polaris it's an HeavyWeight One ! :chainsaw2:
    Can't really confirm for 100% nuthing' now :3eyes:

    But we have some Reliable Info about it...
