Default CCC Vs. Afterburner

I've been having problems lately whereby my screen will show me the lines of death if I let the PC idle for too long on flash-loaded pages using hardware acceleration (e.g. Facebook or Youtube). And for the first time today it did it while i was gaming (old game, Max Payne, GPU basically idling).

After pondering for a while I remembered that AMD CCC has stuff like Overdrive and fan control and other such stuff built in, but I do all that with Afterburner - so it got me thinking I wonder if the problems I'm getting is some kind of cross-foul-play between MSI Afterburner and CCC...

Used to old trick of clearing out GPU drivers using DDU and stopping the AMD installer once it extracted the files - then pointed devmgmt to find the AMD driver in the extract location. So now I've got my GPU drivered without CCC being installed.

Have I gone insane or does this sound like it might actually fix it?

Sounds like it could fix it, certainly not insane! Maybe tell us how you get on so other people can reference the fix!

well, it's the 5th of July, a full week, and I haven't had the issue again yet.

Time I suppose will tell, it was always intermittent, but for now, I will conservatively say It MAY have worked...

Hi! I'm a firm believer in "If it ain't broke don't fix it"
I do believe that there are certain drivers that you should keep updated however; especially these four, and definitely if your having problems as you were having. I'm betting you solved your problem. Good for you!! Anyone with a different thought??
Here's 4 drivers to keep updated IMHO! The best place to get drivers is from your manufacture.
1.Video Card
2.Motherboard Chipset
3.Sound card
4.Network Card
