    Just because upping the 2d clocks resolved the issue doesn't mean that it was the primary cause for the problem. Think about it, if the 2d clocks were the true cause of the issue, then why are there so many people that don't have a problem with leaving it at stock?

    The answer is the same as when CrossFire would crash my old computer a year ago unless I lowered the 3d clocks below stock - it was because of a faulty part, not the video cards or video card drivers.

    Just because someone has something listed in their specs other than what they claim to have, doesn't mean they don't own one. A lot of people have multiple computers, and some people don't always update their specs on the go. I fall under both categories.

    My 5970 ran BEAUTIFULLY until recently, after updating to the beta of 10.3, I experienced the BSOD/re-boot issue. Seems the low 2d clocks FINALLY reared their heads for me.

    Updated profile XML, no issues.

    A few quirks are par for the course with "bleeding egde hardware". I wouldn't trade my handful of minutes fixing things for the hours of gaming I have enjoyed...Just a thought. :nerd:

    Some cards just aren't stable at the clocks ATI has chosen. Does that make them "Faulty" yeah, because they don't operate perfectly, and its a hardware issue. But in the same sense they're not faulty sense the problem is fairly easy to remedy and the cause known, so with a little tinkering, you can have a fully functioning card.

    And MY comment was in reference to the fact that people are talking about his CPU overclock and whatnot. Clearly has nothing to do with the issue and it's just people overreacting to his overreaction.

    Well 5870 has been the best card i have owned so far.

    However as of late havent been 2 impressed. Bfbc2 performance in dx11 to me seems ropey with explosions and smoke...i.e framerate hits. Napoleon suffers from lag with again smoke effects and when u zoom in on units.

    Assasins creed2 runs with vsync as there is no way you can turn it off and occassionally u get fps dips and a noticeable slowdown.

    However dragon age and mass effect 2 and dirt2 and cod modern warfare2 run nr perfectly. Also bordelands has been solid.

    So I wouldnt say dx11 has been a success yet..well dirt2 is a great running game. No slow down at all.

    Perhaps the other games like napoleon and assasins creed its the game engine not the card/drivers that are at fault. So I would say the 5 series are the best atm but arent way out in front. I can still remember 295/285 performance :)

    (also could be which game like nvidia and ati).

    Def not epic fail but not epic win. Still a good win for ati.

    You completely missed the point I was getting across. My old CrossFire system was unstable with the video cards at stock clocks ( 750/900 ) because the motherboard was faulty. This has nothing to do with ATI or the product they put out.

    Point in case, the cause of the problem isn't always what it seems to be. If the OP went through two HD5970's and had the same issue, then that's a pretty good indication that his system is unstable, not ATI's product.

    i had no problem what so ever with my 5850...even tried OC and no problems......i've read some reviews before buying my 5850(of course the... first one was guru's 3d review:)), and no one complained about compatibility or driver related problems....

    5870 here - runs great and haven't had a single problem.

    My notebook (Asus G73JH) has a mobile 5870 and it has not posed any problems either. :cheers:

    I have had problems with my current 4870 yes its not the 5xxx series but the problem was actually because the vram has no heatsinks or anything on them

    wouldnt suprise me if some 5xxx cards had the same problem

    Look at the top you can even see the bare chips :/

    RAM chips don't need their own heatsinks if the fan blows air adequately on them... obviously if you overclock, then it's a different story.

    Erm sure thats why the video ram heats up to about 80*c and crashes out, added with the fact the 4850 cards had about 4 heatsinks attached

    the part with the bare chips you can feel the heat coming off it anyway and thats at stock settings

    Unless you've attached some method of monitoring temperatures to the RAM, or measured it manually, then you don't know the temperature of the RAM.

    You are assuming MemIO is the RAM, and it definitely isn't, it is on the core of the processor. And 80C won't crash it unless it's faulty or overclocked. I had that EXACT model, and I know it has high MemIO temps, but it doesn't crash. Not at stock, not if the card isn't faulty.

    The only problem with my card are those gray screen one's but those were fixed for me a long time ago. These cards are great and if only I'm not living in a tropical country I could reach the stars overclocking these cards.

    No problemos here.

    Only a problem if you try to OC it too high.
