Default Re: FX 5600 XT help

do you have proper cooling for your computer? maybe that's causing the freezing...

as that solved my athlon 1ghz thunderbird lock up issue, just changed the heatsink cooler to something better, and viola, my computer is working fine.

same with my 9700, powercolor decided to use thermalpads as the interface between the gpu and the heatsink. and i get random freezing in games when i use my 9700 (i know my system was stable as my ti4200 ran all the games stable, i reformatted to see if it was a driver conflict issue). so, i got rid of the heatsink and thermalpad and replaced the cooler. and my computer is lock up free.
