Radeon HD 5870, No overclocking, Currently using 12.10 driver, Windows 7 64-bit SP1, DELL INC. 0X501H, Current BIOS up to date, 8GB RAMIntel i7 920. My issue is that trying to use any driver above 12.10, my games will occasionally freeze. Any game. I can CTRL-ALT-DEL back to desktop just fine, but it is a reoccuring problem. My .NETFramework is currently 4.5.1. I dont know if running it back to 4 will help, although i believe it is backwards compatible. Would anyone like to give me any advice? I might wait for the 14 series to come out of beta and try that at this point, but would like to figure out what the current issue is with the 13 series

Are you having a problem with a game which is specifically stated in the release notes as resolved?

Well, I play a lot of games and I've had this problem occur in several, just a few to list : World of Warcraft, Skyrim, Planetside 2, Diablo 3, Loadout, Torchlight 2. I dont believe its my graphics card, as 12.10 works fine, and I dont see anyone with too many issues with the 13 series using my series of gfx card. I decided to look into it again, because my WoW client kept bugging me that my driver was out of date when i loaded it. Im thinking that its a software issue somewhere, but i cant pin point what it is.

The freezing doesnt happen very often, so its hard to pinpoint it, maybe once every day or 2.
