[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 1002

post #10011 of 38371
I found a working solution for those with the 12.4 monitor wake up issue for Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit. Check your monitor settings in:
Code:
CONTROL PANEL / HARDWARE & SOUND / POWER OPTIONS


 [*] select "Choose when to turn off the display"
 [*] select one of your 'Preferred plans"
 [*] select "Change plan settings"
 [*] select "Turn off the display"
 [*] select  "Never" from the drop down menu



I went an extra step and did the same for "Change when the computer sleeps"

This seems to work fine for me and I have yet to get a wake up hang when i'm away from my PC for a long period of time. I just physically turn the monitor off at that point if I expect to be away.

Hope this helps some of you until AMD has an official fix.

Ah, thanks man, appreciate that biggrin.gif 16,9k at 1070 and i get 15,2 in graphics score at 925/1375 (stock reference card clock) means its somewhere between 15,5 to 16,5 circa, then i have something to go bye. Thanks again mate biggrin.gif Ones good thing with 7950 is that i can run really low voltage, i kinda also bought 7950 due to i had a old 750w psu... but with my 1050 silver i guess that won't be a problem anymore biggrin.gif lol

Just did another run at stock after upgrading to 12.4 WHQL and saw some modest increases...

What are your temps with that overclock? Still using the DD air cooler or water cooled?

The card I have isn't the "DD Black Edition" with the custom cooling, it's the "Black Edition" that just comes with a stock/reference blower.

But it doesn't matter because yes, it's water-cooled.

Temp during benching hit 50°C.

Temp after a couple hours of BF3 get to ~55°C max.

Temp right now is idling at 38°C.

What's your cpu overclocked to? The scores are pretty good but you're heaven score better and your cpu score in 3dmark is on the low side for a 2600k. wink.gif

"the gigabyte is the clear winner when it comes to third party cooling. The Sapphire is a nice card, but not as good cooling" whys that?
When you look at that gigabytes cooler http://www.vortez.net/articles_pages/gigabyte_hd7950_windforce_review,7.html It looks cheaper than Sapphire, so I would go with Sapphire, unless gigabyte haves VRM heatsink/speaderWhateverItIs cooling too.

Well I read a hell of a lot of articles before buying my card and every single review showed that the gigabyte card cooled a bit better than the Sapphire which was a close second and then the Asus DCUII. I did the research and the Gigabyte came out the winner from what I read. Just passing on my findings. Also yes the cooler looks cheaper, but it performs so darn good!

Would my 750w psu be enough to run my 2500K at 4.5 (1.4v, yes I know voltage is too high) and two 7970 Lightnings at stock, or slightly higher?
