Hey! I built my new i7 rig some weeks ago, and so far everything has worked like a charm. But, today my 5850 started acting weird.
When playing BC2 it got horrible frame rates, went from a stable 50-70 fps to 30 and lagging. I tried mw2 just to see if it was just BC2, before mw2 ran at 100-200fps with no lag whatsoever but it now runs at 90fps and lags quite alot.
Before this happened the card was avg 57-58C at full load, max 61C, now it won't go higher than 48C under full load.
Also, in CCC, the "Current Values" won't go higher than 400/900 gpu and memory clock.. Before it raised to 725/1000 when gaming, like it should.
(CCC: Right after gaming, just closed the game)
EDIT, MSI Afterburner can't get it over the 400/900 either. I can apply 725/1000, but it doesn't go over 400/900.
So, the problem seems to be that it's clocks won't rise, which obviously will cause less temp and performance. Anyone else had this problem?
