My question now as i dont have a reference cooler and i only have experience with the sapphire oc version of the 7970 (2 of the same cards) what temps people are seeing there normally?
The fastest way to notice a bad core overclock on mine is on heaven in the grass part looking down the hill it just artifacts if i have a bad overclock..
Overclocked to 1030 MHz with 1.062 voltage, auto fan regulation, if i tweak fan profile, i can get 1100 MHz for 24/7 with temps below 70C,but problems is that i dont have either will or time to tweak fan profile. On stock it never reaches that kind of temps, on stock it stays below. 60C. Hope this helps, btw i have HD 7950 if that matters. Cheers
@RJacobs28
Can you please post temps of your cards with auto fan speed?
Cheers
@vonalka
Looks like every card is different, maybe my memory was overheating, because it is overvolted. Altrough i lowered voltage for memory now. And i dont like to push parts to its maximum, i had bad experience with things working at their maximum.
Seems like on stock voltage, temps are not the problem, but when you start to overvolt, that temp "wall" suddenly appears.

If it's a reference it should be whatever the manual says to use on a 7970.

I am kinda not getting my 7970.. Must've hit a frequency wall... 1200Mhz perfectly stable on 1.188v. 1250Mhz already needs 1.262v and anything over 1250, say 1265, is impossible to stabilize even with 1.299v ;( 1250 aint bad at all but I was hoping for a 1300+ card...

Max temps in-game with my Accelero 7970 at 1250 with 1.262v is just 55-60c so... Got the room to run 1.299v 24/7 but it just doesn't help tongue.gif
