SORRY folks, i know, i've been a ghost lately, but i'm still alive and so is the thread
yes you can sir, you're IN
LOL, finally my friend, you're IN
btw, you submitted 2 different gpu-z/3dmark11 screenshots, i'm a bit confused as which clocks are you actually running at? i used the info in your original upload where it said 950 core and a 3dmark 11 score of p9318. let me know if you are actually running at clocks stated in your 2nd gpu-z upload, then i'll update accordingly, cheers

i've kinda been busy with work and all that, just checking in every now and then these days....
as for the 7xxx, i guess the price tag is the problem here...
i'd say there must be something abnormal with your fans, as mine and i'd assume most other dcii fans are pretty much silent up until 40-50% fan speed. double check if your fan blades are in good shape, and if there are cables running close to the fans, that could amplify noise as well. if all looks normal, and you think the fans are definitely louder than it should be, then perhaps time to rma?

I was wondering what should i set my core, memory and vcore to for a stable but good overclock on this GPU.
not sure where do you need help with? there isn't really a bad or good overclock, it's all about getting the maximum out of your card, or push it as far as you are happy with.
your current overclock seems pretty healthy, have you tested it for stability? if it's stable and only at stock vcore then i must say you have a very decent card and you could try and aim for 1ghz core and 1500mhz vram perhaps?

So it might be possible that the end of the DCII card won't hit the botton of the ODD cage.
I already bought a MSI 560-ti 2gb, but I am willing to switch to DCII coolers if proven. I really like the dcii coolers more than anything else.
this is directly from lian li website, and it looks like it can take anything upto about 290mm between the back of the case and the harddrive cage.
gtx560ti dcii cards are about 10.16' which is approximately 259mm
gtx570/580 dcii cards are about 11.5' which is roughly 293mm
hd7970 dcii cards are 11' which is about 280mm
hd7950 dcii cards are 11.8' which is roughly 300mm!!! (a bit surprised to see the 7950 actually being longer than the 7970, a strange one)
so there you go, hope it helps a bit
