Windows 7: GPU clocks at full load with no palpable reason

GPU clocks at full load with no palpable reason

Well, my case begins with a sudden full load on my vga clocks. Everything works as expected, until the clocks of the memory and video processor spike full load without any apparent motivation. What can only be solved by rebooting. Reinstalled the entire Catalyst and solved ... apparently ... since it has happened again. I do not know if it has any relationship with any video driver bug. As far as I remember it started with the installation of Catalyst 11.2, but not sure. I found nothing like this in the AMD forums that might help diagnose the problem ... So, now that's you, comrades of SF! Thanks in advance!

Firefox 4 RC1
AMD Catalyst 11.2
Flash Player 10.2.152.32
No manual OC
25C / 77F ambient
Lastest BIOS version - mobo
Original BIOS version - 012.020.000.001 - Sapphire HD 5870 Vapor-X OC

Bug/glitch that has affected a few. You will find it mentioned in both of these threads,

Catalyst 11.2 - Rage3D Discussion Area

AMD Catalyst 11.2 Driver download & Discussion - Guru3D.com Forums

And from what I can see looks to be fixed for most that had it with the 11.4 preview driver,

I really appreciate you for the information collected and presented here. I appreciate the commitment to provide a solution to my problem, though I still have to wait until the next version of the AMD Catalyst solve what I described. Again, in case it was unclear, I do thank you for the commitment!
