Based on this review, it is default of 1.6v: just noticed that with vdroop, my vcore is 1.193v. Is that a lot of vdroop for this card? I have it set to 1.238v in GPU Tweak:I have that weird bios that doesn't give me access to some voltages, both in OC settings and in reading voltages. And it looks lik ethe vcore goes up to 1.205v from 1.193v as it fluctuates:
I've been F@H every day with my machine since April 13th for the Chimp Challenge (with the exception of a some trial and error runs with this card's bios a few hours each day for a week). My card ran solid at 1125/1575 until yesterday. I've since OCed the card to 1200/1600 and have run F@H for 24Hrs.
yeah, this is pretty much the issue with the ASUS 7970 DC2/T series (the 7950 seem to be doing OK). I spent the better part of a week trying to figure out how to get the most out of my 7970 DC2T after months of just accepting it was locked. And it seems there are many different ways to go about it with these cards, but only one will work for an individual's card, so its anyone's guess. In the end, it turned out I only needed to run GPU Tweak 2.1.4. to fully unlock my...
I'm running the 13.4 stock AMD drivers and am getting approx. 120k PPD. My HTPC with a 7770 is also running the stock 13.4 AMD drivers and it is getting approx. 28k PPD.
Save yourself some money and unneeded strain on your memory controller. Instead of getting 4x4Gb Ballistix at $140, go for the 2x8Gb kit of Ballistix of the same specs for $115: You can also save approx. $70 by going for that P9X79 board in the F/S section and put the $70 towards a higher capacity SSD, or upgrade to 2Tb HDDs.
The ram speeds supported by the X79 platform is heavily dependent on the CPU's Integrated Memory Controller (IMC). Buying the ram at higher speeds will not guarantee your setup can run it, just that if you have a strong IMC, it should be able to run it. DDR3 1866 is more than enough for decent performance with 2133 being the staple for the average OCer. Once you start pushing your ram passed 2133, you start having to add vccio voltage beyond Intel specs (1.10v is Intel...
I already have a transformer Prime 64Gb, and had the original iPad 64Gb. But I like to tinker, and have owned non-traditional tablets like the HP Touchpad and the Viewsonic Tegra 2 10.1" tablet. I know what I'm getting when I pick up a tablet as I do plenty of research. For me its parallel to buying an OEM Dell vs building my own desktop. I do it because I can. The Chinese market has some decent products which are currently running the vanilla Jellybean. They are a...
Its turning out to be a lottery on whether the Matrix bios will flash or not. I can get it to flash to my DC2T, but not functional passed being able to boot and load windows. The card doesn't brick, so its not too painful to fix. Yet others with a DC2T can flash the Matrix bios with zero problems.
Anything you can provide would be great. We can make this thread our own with the accumulated knowledge we've each gained. It could become a great source of info for OCN's ASUS 7970 non-ref cards.
