*edit*
forgot to add that
after i rebooted the problem seemed to go away. for the most part but the load temp on my card has gone from 43c to 46c since moving from 8.79 to 12.4?
my wife and a friend also pointed out to me a minute ago that they had some lag issues going on last night.. it just aswell may had been my server. what do you guys think?

Wait wait wait...your complaining about fps loss even though your wife not only lets you play but plays with you? **** ill take a 20fps hit for that kind of life!

Buying the 1gb 6950 wouldnt make much sense. If running xfire and or multimonitor setup you will suffer greatly because of the limited amount of vram that you will have especially games like crysis 2 and bf3. Buy the hd7950 it has 3gb of vram and also has the ability to overclock and beat hd 6950s is many games. Look at the benchmarks for hd 7970 it often surpassed the hd6990 in many of the benchmarks. You will also get better tessellation performance which may increase as time goes by with driver revisions.thumb.gif

Coil whine is present in many top range cards nvidia or amd. Now i dont have a card that whines which i am glad for but i believe some people have stated that the whine goes away after some time I am nt sure. You could always try RMAing and getting a nother card with less or no whine.

srry abt double post didnt realise.

To quote myself here...
It seems the value Trixx is defaulting to when pushing reset is indeed the voltage your card is running on in 3D mode from that moment on. I was wrong when saying the value is incorrect. It is incorrect in a way that it is not your default stock voltage BUT it IS the voltage you are running on from that moment on...
Seems like a bug in Trixx to me...

EDIT: I left PC for a while and it went to sleep state. Now after resuming I decided to check Trixx again and now it is saying the correct stock voltage again and when checking with GPU-Z in 3D mode it also confirms it.
So sleep resets the voltage to the correct value?? Now I am really lost smile.gif

Swiftech fullcovers are notorious for being hyper restrictive for what amounts to little gain, ie. 1c on the core. It's not a well balanced block imo. Right now the ek block is top imo, especially for the cost. It also has the largest vrm cooling channel which is a bonus for our cards.
