Do you have links confirming this or is this your own observation.

Thanks.

I'd suspect cards with an after-market heatsink would stay cooler than a standard reference design.

Unsigned drivers in 9.12 RC2 and D-Link issues

Thanks curtis

I also tried completely uninstalling CCC/drivers followed by Driver Wipe. Manually configured the drivers for 8.660.6 (funny, even after driver wipe I could still see the CCC 9.12 RC2 drivers, but I ignored those). My system was stable for a good 3 hours (the longest time yet).

After the crash, I did try to install the 9.12 RC2 drivers (8.671), but Win 7 x64 informs me the drivers are not signed! These are kernel mode drivers, so must be signed. Tried running Win 7 in Test mode (allowing unsigned drivers) but they still wouldn't load. Since then, I have rolled back to 8.660.6.

I have turned off Windows Aero theme, set the fan to 40% and seem to be having some level of stability with my business apps - running about 1 to 3 hours in between reboots.

You are also right about the D-Link cards. I have had major instability issues with them (both PCI and USB). D-Link don't seem to support x64 platforms very well. I finally ended up getting a router (D-Link DIR-300) and am using it as a bridge across my WLAN (courtesy of DD-WRT bios flash), sort of ironic I thought . This allows me to use the motherboard LAN ports and default drivers.

Set that fan higher and you may find perfect stability. Higher = better, of course. You can turn on Aero too. No need to disable with that card.

I wasn't talking to you. If he's gaining stability at 40%.....do the math. It's probably rebooting on him because fan is only 40%.

Hello all. So after many reinstallation of windows 7 and all the solutions I've read in the web I finally RMA my sapphire 5770, funny thing was when I was in the shop the problem is not showing up at first and finally the system locked up and we can see the artifacts. Im beginning to believe after all the problems people encountered with the 5770 that there is really a bad batch out there.

So far no crashes even using the ati 9.11 driver

Well, my card is idling at 38 degrees. Running desktop applications, it can get up to 50 degreees. Running NWN2 it gets up to 58 degrees. Funny thing is, I'm sure the crash is not heat related. It has crashed in the main menu for NWN2, about 5 minutes after the game starts. And other times, I have had NWN2 run for over 2 hours before it crashes. Other times, it has crashed on the desktop while moving a window.

I have installed MSI Afterburner to control the fan. At most, the fan has been running at 55% as the card never reached 60 degreees. Apparently, there is no difference in temperature if I set to 40% or 50% fan speed on the desktop, but the noise is annoying.

I ran Graphics Card Stress Test. The first time, it crashed after 30 seconds. After a reboot, it ran for half an hour without issue. It seems the more I stress the card, the longer it is running without a crash.

In any case, I have RMA'd for an exchange HD 5770. CCC 9.12 ('09.December) is due out, probably next week, so I will try a different card in the same rig, then I will try the new drivers. I will let you all know how I got on.

Well I got fed up and I mailed my "defective" 5750 back to newegg today. Now the wait begins. Using an X1950XTX in the mean time. Not even officially supported under Windows 7...

Gave up on ATI (Asus EAH5770)

Well, I'm afraid I decided to give up on ATI and my Asus EAH5770. After much patching, driver updating and testing, display continued to lock up with driver error recovery some times, mostly requiring a hard reset.

Asus agreed to RMA the card, but would not cross ship, so I would have been without a card for at least 2 weeks. I was also unwilling to wait and see if the next ATI driver would solve the problem.

The reseller I bought it from agreed to let me return it, and instead I ordered an EVGA GTX275. Although it's physically larger, it fits in my case without any trouble at all (Antec P193).

So far so good, no lock-ups...
