Windows 7: ATI 5850 freezes computer

Oh, I haven't OC'd yet. I was talking about the motherboard issue. I am going to OC maybe tomorrow, if not then next weekend. I'll PM you with questions if I encounter them (probably will)
Already played a few games on HoN today with no issue. It's pretty nice ^^

Edit: are you using the stock coolers? I had a good aftermarket cooler on my older setup with a Q6600 but the size is not going to fit. I am still using the normal Intel stock heatsink (I do have Arctic Silver 5 though). I am not sure if I can OC with that. May have to buy that.

Oh ok, cool. Did you just uninstall all of your drivers or reformat your Hard Drive?

I basically just reformatted and reinstalled Win7. Had to make a partition to save some stuff first then move them and remove partition and expand. Didn't uninstall any drivers before doing so since I figured reformatting will wipe everything.

Yes, a fresh install doesn't preserve drivers sans a flashed your mobo. You would know if you did.

As for the CPU OC, it's pretty self explanatory. they walk you through everything. either use a secondary computer to watch the video on or take notes.

Hmm, can you give a list of settings you used for the OCing of the CPU and the ATI vid card?
Also, how much power are you using. I am only using a 600W PSU and I may need to get a new one if I OC that much or something.

The OCing the CPU to 3.8, and the GPU (through Catalyst) doesn't require overvolting, so the rise in power usage should be minimal. However, i don't know how to check my power usage, so i can't tell you for sure. If you know how to check power usage, please tell me and i'll check for you.

Also, i installed the Realtek Audio drivers, and they seem to be ok. I'll have to use them in HoN later on today to be sure.
