    Ok, after getting Optifine and chucking that into feed the beast, and wiping the AMD folder in C: after uninstalling the CCC and then reinstalling the CCC, I don't have these annoying screen issues anymore Do get some chunk loading errors, but I changed the Chunk loading option in Optifine from Default to Smooth and that appears to have fixed the problem

    Unfortunately, it started again. So I'm just about willing to bet it's the drivers and minecraft being bitchy to eachother...

    If your a gamer, it might be time to add a dedicated video card to that rig.

    Did you try this 14.4 driver, from this page ? Desktop I think that APU drivers are a bit different that those ones for discrete cards of same series. Read the explanation too.

    I often wondered if you selected Desktop APU instead of Mobile APU if you would actually get a different version driver? Or if the 14.4 you get has all the files for both and sorts it out during the install. My laptop has an AMD Radeon HD 7660G in the APU and a dedicated 7670M with 1GB DDR3 VRAM. I just install the Mobile APU drivers. I don't do a separate download for the 7670m. They both show up in Catalyst Control Center and the switchable graphics work as they should. It's Bonus, bonus, being AMD/AMD for me. I can see having an APU in a desktop PC complicating things depending on what brand of dedicated card you plug in. Like say an NVidia card.

    I'll give that a shot and see how it goes. I'll do the standard procedure of a restore point before I go screwing with it again haha. By the way, how did you find that release? I've had issues finding drivers on the AMD website since the get go because of their apparant lack of a general list.

    PS: Sorry for late reply, have been a little busy irl.

    I've downloaded and installed the drivers listed above, and I will see if the issue persists. Just waiting on feed the beast to load up xD

    So status on the issue is still not resolved. I do not know why the game is doing this, but it only happens in minecraft. Nothing else appears to be affected. It might even be just feed the beast monster which might not be related to this computer at all, however my laptop has the same game on it, and does not have this issue. So it makes me wonder...

    EDIT: I can confirm that regular minecraft is not affected by this issue. So it may be something on the FTB side of things.
