    Back up live. Reinstalling windows7 then will be going after pcmark05 and pifast, neither of which would run earlier today. Then some 3d runs on the 4890.

    Hey Matt, don't waste propane warming your container up take the rig over to a sink and use hot water. I'll drop in the stream in a sec and see what's up.

    What would cause pifast to crash immediately when the test begins, 3dmark06 to crash immediately after launching (before splash screen), and pcmark05 to fail the 3d pixel shader test?

    This is on win7, reinstalled at midnight last night, same problem. Switched between 4890 and 5870. Uninstalled and reloaded drivers on both cards. Ran without any chipset drivers or anything, then installed all chipset drivers and everything for the mobo.

    wp1024 runs fine. 3dm03 runs fine. The things that fail also fail at stock settings, or a nice easy 5Ghz overclock thats wp1024 stable at -190C.

    Anyone that can solve this riddle will forever be my hero, been up all night trying to figure something out.

    Bump. I know it's only been a few hours, but I could really use some ideas on this issue. Anybody?

    wish I could offer some help. I havent used amd for years and years, and havent had any issues running those benches on intel.I have seen issues running some benches over driver issues. My SB wont even open some of the 3d tests with certain drivers and some do just as you say, fail immediately.

    Your RAM stable, can you pass SPI32M?

    Yes. Passing sp32 at stock and 5ghz. These apps are failing before they start, and its totally consistent... always at the same point.

    I was running 9.6 with the 4890, and I tried both 11.1 and 10.6 on the 5870.

    Pcmark05 runs without issue, except the 3d pixel shader test... it fails before beginning.

    I feel like there's an AMD joke in here somewhere...

    Did you do a clean install of each of them? Maybe you borked the hard drive, have you tried a different one?

    LOL, mor7.

    Also, I don't think this is platform related... As in Amd is not the culprit. Are you making sure you're using the latest possible versions of each benchmark?

    Maxi mentioned patches, and I am running the latest benchmark versions and patches. It doesn't take much to get pifast right especially.
