I am using CCC overdrive to overclock my 5850 and my gpu/memory speeds drop to 157/300... This causes my screen to flicker all over. Please help me. I am pretty new to overclocking and I want to get the most I can out of this card.

You're not the only one ...   from what i have gathered it is hapening to lots of people running any of the last few releases of VCC.

On my main rig i am running 12.3 and all is good...

On my gaming rig i have tested 12.10 and 12.11 beta and having flickering issues.

Its not hardware related because my rigs share the same hardware. Something is broken in VCC ....

If I remember correctly, the HD 5850's idles at 157/300. If your cards are sitting on desktop or not doing anything that requires "effort" running at 157/300 is normal.You can go into your registry and disable ULPS (that worked for me when I had my 2 X 5850's).If you use MSi Afterburner to overclock, you can do into the Afterburner .cfg file to disable Power Play.I would love to help you more in-depth, but since I've gotten rid of my two HD 5850's earlier this month...a little difficult.
