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?


True I dont really like messing around with voltage . I really only like overclocking as high as I can in CCC . There is really no need and blowing up my card to get like 8fps more . Just buy another card if you want more fps . The only probs I have had is with the drivers not the cards . AMD really needs to work harder on the drivers I think though . 12.4 WHQL is the best so far . I also believe there is more performance that could be unlocked with better drivers thumb.gif

I tbink my issues are more an AB/overclocking issue than drivers. Stock drivers so far seem to work OK, but AB breaks my games for some reason. Is that AMD's fault? Well of course not. But my complaint is in relation to the fantastic experience I had using AB with my 580's for ovetclocking and the stark reality that for some reason these 7970's wont allow that at all....

I have always had bad luck with ab and trixx but for some reason now trixx works good on 12.4

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

Yep, I agree with you here.
2 golden rules I follow :
1) stay away from beta drivers
2) stay away from atiman or driversweeper.

I first installed the drivers that came with the card (RC11), then installed a very small update over it (without uninstalling).
After that I uninstalled RC11 before installing 12.3 WHQL
After that I uninstalled 12.3 before installing 12.4 WHQL

Only problem I had was with Batman AC sometimes crashing which AMD fixed in 12.2 or something. That was the reason that I moved away from RC11.
And I had slight problems when letting the monitor shut down after a while which I fixed by disabling it and using a screensaver instead.

Yeah that's something that irritates me too. I had a 580 Lightning Xtreme that was broken on arrival, but it still played nice with AB, no issues. There shouldn't be issues with AB, especially for those using an MSI branded card, and I'm not talking about OCing, I'm talking about those who have to uninstall it to get their system to work properly.

Alright now I get my turn to have problems. On my last build I did not have a single issue and now I am having a slight problem with the AMD display driver has stopped responding and has recovered although the PC is too messed up and slow after "recovery" so I have to hard restart it. I have all the same settings as my last PC and the same PSU. I have also made sure my OC is perfectly stable so it shouldn't have to do with my CPU...

I don't know what to do. It seems to happen when it comes out of monitor sleep (not full PC sleep).

Majin SSJ Eric, have you had a go with Trixx yet? It definitely works quite well. I was using AB earlier but could not got very high. But then again I'm not going OC crazy. Just enough to max things out in my games without my fans screaming "WAAAAAAA" all the time. I'm pissed too, but I guess as someone said earlier, these 7970's need some tuning and attention to get them just right. Sure the 680's perform great out of the box (I'm probably getting one for a mATX build I have coming up), but then you can tweak em very much. Crossfire seems a headache across the board. But once you get it right, damn performance just screams.

That's the zerocore issue, what driver are you using?

Guys, how many times have I said it?

Don't use Driver Sweeper or anything like that (or beta drivers). Just uninstall via the uninstall utility.
Use MSI AB with the -xcl method (do NOT use Unofficial Overclocking).
Once you're setup there, set a stock profile and an overclocked profile (seperated). Then use the Profiles tab in settings, and set stock as your 2D profile, and overclocked to your 3D profile.

Your problems with zero core and MSI AB overclocking WILL be fixed by doing that. If you've used beta drivers or are having too much issues, then try a reformat before doing the above methods. I have YET to have an issue since RC11 drivers doing this method with my single 7970, and ONLY using WHQL drivers.

EDIT:
For the record, I'm on 12.4 WHQL drivers, and the latest MSI AB. I've tried Skyrim, The Witcher 2, Crysis, Crysis 2, BF3......all of them. Absolutely ZERO issues maxing these games out (except Witcher 2, have AA off and Uber off). And this is at 2560x1600.
