It started happening as soon as I got the machine with VERY SPECIFIC apps/games under VERY SPECIFIC conditions. Initially I thought that it MIGHT be overheating, or bad memory but running prime95, furmark, unigine, memtest, etc. all turned up zilch. Temps all plateaued at reasonable numbers AND STAYED there when fan was running at max with 100% GPU/CPU utilization. Better than I expected really. I'm pretty sure that in some of the 2009 catalyst threads that I posted about this... then I eventually gave up as the drivers actually got worse or didn't seem to have anything other than support added for a new GPU.)
