    I seemed to have issues with cryengine games,benchmarks with latest 14.12 went back to 14.9 and seems to have fixed it. Artifacts and screen going blank.

    I also put svl7's Dell7970m-900-1300-ov1075v.ROM and seems to like it and can do 1000 on the core stable.

    Whilst I am on it why is AMD's latest driver in December would be nice if they were updating it more.

    What have you found the most stable driver/bios combo on yours.

    When I had two 6990Ms I had same problems. Catalyst drivers are very low quality. I've tried about 6 drivers to finally get some one working and performance was good. There was even a difference about 40% fps in one driver and another. They really should improve that aspect.

    That's list of drivers that worked in my system good:
    AMD_Catalyst_13.11_Mobility_BetaV9.51
    AMD_Catalyst_14.2_Beta1.3
    AMD-Catalyst-14.6-Beta-V1.0-Windows-May23

    I had 6990M so it may be different but worth trying if you need stable driver.
