anybody with a powercolor 9700p having to underclock it to run stable?
i've got a buddy at work who just got a powercolor 9700p yesterday from the same store i did.
he was going to take it back but the store was closed today..
we have to underclock it to 310 to get it to run stable without a hard lock...
he can run 3dmark03 for about 15 seconds of wings of fury
before a hard lock at core/324....we treid increments of 5 and the only freq it the core would run at was 310...pretty crazy huh...
same for 3dmark2k1se only locks up in nature..
any opinions...i know what mine is..its a freakin dud...
