  1. Yeah, it was a problem with the AMD drivers. They just released an update this week, and the problem seems to have stopped. It also fixed another problem where if windows turned off my monitors due to inactivity it would stop reporting stuff like clock, memory, utilization etc. So I would consider this one fixed with the update from AMD.
  2. Well it wasn't the intel software. I don't have anything else that would possibly be polling the card except the AMD Catalyst Control Center.
  3. I'll see if I can get rid of the Intel software. I think I tried once and I couldn't remove it because it's tied to the chipset drivers. Is it possible that the AMD Catalyst Control Center software cause a problem? I'll try removing the Intel stuff and report back after a week, I have managed a few days of stability with the low level PCI stuff enabled, but eventually I get the freezes.
  4. I know the software for my motherboard monitors some stuff like temps and utilization, but that wasn't causing any problems before I upgraded my video card, and I don't believe it does anything with the GPU. Everything works fine when I'm using the system normally, but when the GPU "powers down" from being idle, that's when my system locks up. AIDA will stop reporting GPU and clock speeds on my card (which was normal for my last card) then eventually freezes my system. I've been turning off the PCI info when I'm not going to be using my machine for a bit, then turning it back on while gaming
