Can you really blame anyone though, it is Overclock.net. But yes you are correct if you use any product (even a coffee mug) for something it wasn't intended for you will have problems. AMD built this cards to use CCC and OC up to 1125/1500, anything higher and your just asking for problems. Also I'm just gonna say this (people will probably disagree) but if you are not getting 60FPS average at the settings you want, then OCing will not get you there. OCing at best will net you maybe on average an extra 8-10fps, at least that's the difference for me between stock and max overclock in game, and my max is 1270. Best way to get more FPS lower res, lower settings. Honestly I would rather have more FPS than higher fidelity, even in BF3 I usually only play with High and Post AA, so I can see them before they see me, except Metro so easy on the card. You payed 500+ for these cards and won't let them work the way they are designed, why don't you put some jet fuel in your car while your at it and see what happens. The OP is right. Yes this overclock.net, and yes it is about getting your max and being stable. But no mechanic is going to recommend you put a turbo in a Civic, unless you want more problems and headaches, for a slight increase in performance. Just as AMD isn't recommending to anyone that they use third-party apps for Overclocking. I'm gonna go hide under my rock now, and wait for the haters.

Newegg had a deal for the non-OC Sapphire 7950 that I couldn't pass up. Been loving it so far. I tend to prefer to slightly lower settings rather than have a lot of fan noise so I haven't pushed the card very much but I'm already impressed with what I've seen. Did a fresh install of Win7, running with 12.4 and tweaking in Trixx and so far zero issues.

Since I'm new (and didn't read through the first 1k+ pages of this thread wink.gif) what speeds/temps have you other 7950 owners been able to achieve?

Please don't tell me what I should be "happy" with concerning my cards, OK? By your reckoning my 580 Lightnings were plenty for gaming as I could easily max every game with them too. The whole purpose of me trading in the 580's for 7970's was to maximize performance in benching (which is something I do more than gaming if you want to know the truth). If I was only worried about gaming performance I would have just stuck with my 580's...

I'm trying to listen but I just don't get it I guess. Which driver should I be running to use AB for OCing but still have stability in games at stock?????

In the intro dungeon when I looked up in the cave/tunnel areas textures would pop in and out like it was trying to decide which to render: sky or tunnel ceiling. I'm running on default ultra settings and I never had this problem on my phenom II x4 955.
The card is overclocked to 1125/1575 which should be fine. On the previous build I messed around and was playing BF3 default ultra on 1220/1800 with no problems. I'll try to test more tonight with screen shots.

Had similar issues last night in Skyrim. I only installed the 7970, so it's definitely that. Happened a few times, but after a while, I didn't see it again. Weird.

You can bench along till smoke comes out of your ass. I really do not care.
But you should NOT be shouting along these forum blaming AMD for all the crap of this world because... YOU CAN NOT BENCH AT HIGH ENOUGH SETTINGS.
I am sorry but that is totally ridiculous and nobody will take that seriously imo.

If you can not game at stock settings you should blame AMD
If you can not get a mild OC you could even blame AMD imo
but blaming AMD for not getting insane bench results is abit too far fetched, no?

12.5 beta aka 8.97 is supposedly a good all around driver if 12.4 is a no go. Those using eyefinity will want to stay on rc11 btw. The other thing is you have to separate the driver issues from AB/overclocking issues. You have to put things in perspective, though I know first hand its hard to when it all adds up to the same frustrations. Don't blame one for the bugs of the other.

Each driver has its own quirks btw, and you sort of have to juggle these with your end goal. Another wrench in the works is that you can only install/uninstall drivers so many times before the dll libraries get fubar'd. After you've jumped thru the hoops to find the "right" for you, don't change drivers again until others have tested the new ones. Another thing, you're contradicting yourself in a way, because benching was good with 12.4 but gaming was bad and you were not happy. Thus in reality the whole experience is important right?

Use 12.4 WHQL On a clean Windows install. And never use beta drivers from now on . I think most of people haveing probs including me have used beta drivers and things like driver sweaper and the other thing like driver sweper . Those things only tend to make things worse . Only use WHQL drivers . I dont mess with betas anymore half of the time they dont uninstall right . I did a clean windows install with 12.3 WHQL then when 12.4 came out I just uninstalled it the right way in control panel restarted then installed 12.4 WHQL . I had a few probs with 12.4 but it was my fault cause I had 1 of the bios switches on 2 on the others where on 1 . I dont know why that would mess with anything but it did . The only time I would use a beta anymore is if it is a preview driver on AMD's official website . I simply don't trust the source of the other drivers . thumb.gif
