    Sometimes, especially demanding games, I see the screen flickering/blocking. It happens in an certain area of the game and it's gone when you restart the game.

    Now I'm playing wolfenstein new order, and the problem is heavy. Many times I get the flickering error and sometimes the games shut down. One time I have got a blue screen.

    At the moment, I don't use overclock on my GPU and CPU.

    for a example:

    Does anyone knows whats happening?

    I use the 14.4 driver with Windows 7.

    I have this issue with my PC 7970 V3 as soon as it passes 83c i will start to see small patches of white/black flickering blocks

    I thought about fitting a 3rd party cooler at first but decided to play with my fan profile,this helped to hold it at bay but the extra noise was an issue

    In the end i went with Under Volt'ing the core and a small tweak to the fan profile both managed with MSI afterbuner

    3d Core voltage is now at 1.044 (from 1.175 bios value) and that tweak alone as knocked 15-20c of max temps like for like fan speed & i can still get 1ghz core and 1500mhz mem no problem.

    Id suggest keeping an eye on your temps ingame for a while to see if you can spot a trigger temp and then work from there,you can use Afterburner/RivaTuner Statistics Server OSD to monitor things.

    What are Ur temperatures of Ur videocard?

    It could be that they are really high so it could cause flickering/artifacts.

    What also could be is that U'll need to reinstall the latest AMD drivers again and make sure U CLEAN INSTALL with DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller).
