Registered! Sapphire Dual-X OC at 1150/1540 with an EK FC7970 Copper+Acetal. It's weird how the Sapphire Dual-X PCB has the missing VRM, whereas the reference PCB lacks it.

How much voltage would be safe for 7950 if the temps are under on core 65C? No cooling on vrms or vrams.

Is it possible to burn vrms? I have accelero s1 and on 1170mV my card doesnt go over 50C on repeted runs of heaven. I want to raise voltage but don't want to burn vrms.

@rallyslag

Was 1050/1750 at stock voltage of 1.031V on my nonOC sapphire 7950. Then tried 1100 and wasnt stable. Havent tried any inbetween because i dont care about core on stock voltage. I wanna get it up to 1210mhz then i will be happy:)

I hope they release it soon as it's release usually coincides with a new driver, lol.

I just used atiman uninstaller and installed 12.3, 12.5 beta and the 8.97 7900 modded drivers and all three made a few of my games BSOD on launch. Just reinstalled windows 7 and installed the modded drivers and problem still there. It seems that they launch in 3D mode all by themselves and then the screen locks up and BSOD. Problems not there when crossfire turned to 2 cards or off. AMD drivers are terrible. mad.gif

If you can, get ahold of a 1200 watt psu and test it out. This sounds like a power draw problem. If TDP is 300w you are netting close to your power threshold.

You guys are really lucky. My 7950 Wind with ASIC 71% can only do 950Mhz at 1.031V ( def ).

I wish it could at least 1Ghz since it's my standard overclock when I play ( 1.075V ). It can max out the memory at 1575Mhz, but pointless since I only overclock the core.

Nothing to do with my PSU. It is just the fact that any native AMD HD3D games will launch in 3d mode regardless if you turn it off ingame. (I tried fresh windows 7 install and games still launches in 3d momentarily.) Sniper Elite V2 and BF3 both open in 3D and then change to 2D a few seconds after. It also seems three way crossfire BSOD in 3D. The only reason I didn't have this problem before was because 11.12 drivers don't support crossfire 3D. The HD3D option would be greyed out ingame. It's doing my head in because there seems to be no way to set up an application profile to have 2way or 3way crossfire specifically. Only the various crossfirex modes and turn off altogether.

Nah, his PSU is PLENTY for 3 7970s. I ran 3 7970s on a 2500K rig with a TX850. It was right at it's limit, but in no way is a 1000W not enough.

i run mine sapphire 7950 oc on 1200/1600 1.250v since i got it and have no problems. case is well ventilated and card tops at 75C which is ok.

Yes but you have heatsinks on vrms.
