"Hello, i purchased a Sapphire R7 265 from new egg recently and havent' been able to get it to run properly. i've tried the most recent stable and beta drivers from AMD, but the computer keeps crashing, getting black screen, striping, etc. i can't even run the windows experience index test. it seems like Flash/gaming will cause the computer to crash. with the stock windows drivers i run fine (in 2D i'm guessing) but with the catalyst drivers its a no go. even if i just let the computer sit, the refresh/redraw rate on the screen takes a huge hit, where if i'm dragging windows across the screen, i can't tell what i'm doing

my setup is as follows

Sapphire R7 265
I3-3220 proccessor
Gigabyte GA-H77N-WIFI LGA 1155 motherboard
Rosewill green series RG630-S12 630w continuous power supply
2 WD drives in RAID 0

i feel like maybe its my power supply, but how do you test that without me RMAing it?"

I have the same card and the same BSOD issues.  Not sure what to do or if we're the only two people with this issue.

Is anyone else running this card, and if so what drivers are you using?  I have the 14_4 and any program that pushes my video will cause a BSOD after 1-10 minutes.

My onboard 3300HD has no issues so I assume it's not anything except HW on the new card or drivers.

I have the same issues with the 260X - it seems there's some major issues with the R7 series.  It's either a massive hardware issue (unlikely) or just really really bad drivers (likely).

Make sure to fill out an issue report:


I've already done it, but unfortunately the issues forced me to grab a different card due to the black screen garbage.
