Yeah, I understand how that might work for an unstable setup, but that doesn't explain why it would work perfectly stable after a driver install. Thats my main focus. What happens with the drivers, its the same every time. They corrupt after an installation within windows mostly, thats how I can measure it most clearly.

No I haven't. I understand the bios was for adding fan control. I have looked into it, but my card already had manual fan control.

Tried the ATI flashtool, but it wouldn't work

Yeah, somehow I already had that bios. But corrupted drivers seem to be normal with ATI over time, only not this fast. I mean, I can play Dirt 2 for hours without a single hickup at Ultra settings 60Hz vsync with full fps, after a fresh driver install, but doing stuff in windows just messes it up permanently.
