2nd picture..idle??
Just wondering because first says 2.0..

 

It drops the bus speed back to save power.

If you click on the question mark beside that, it explains why and gives you a test to make sure all is working OK

I've installed my waterblocks and aircoolers on and off my 7970s and I've owned more than is in my rig, more times than I can remember. You've got to be one belligerent soul to damage the die. There's infinitely more chance of ripping a smd cap off than crushing the core. The thing is recessed with a protective plate no less.

I have the lowest ASIC yet of 74.2% redface.gif but I can hit 1200/1800 on stock cooler/volts with proven all day gaming stable without a wiff of artefacts in crysis,crysis warhead, cryengine 3,keyshot,solidworks realview,max payne 3,BF BC2, BF3,3dmark,heaven, etc (Summers great when your a student biggrin.gif )

Someone should really start a database on this thread with ASIC % over maximum clocks on stock volts to see if it even matters that much. I bet the results would be quite interesting.

I've got you beat! My brand new Sapphire 7970 OC has an ASIC Quality of 73.2% lol

Keep it at +20. Move the volts as you overclock.

O.K., thank you! You've convinced me. Wasn't so hard after all. :S

Does the power consumption increase considerably? How would rate it?

I've got a 63% 7970, & there is one guy here that posted an asic of 5?%, got everyone beat for lowest.

Do most people here find the powertune +20 helps more than hurts? I've tried it out & thought it killed stability somewhat, I was clocking higher leaving it alone.

The discussion make me do the antec 620 mod and damn what a plaster of tim all over the tiny resistors...
So i took a toothbrush and scrub the crap out of it, the toothbrush manage to get between those tiny resistors like a pro... I usually use a paint brush to swipe dust out of pcbs work 100%, just have to be gentle with it, this time i was totally on it like hard time lmao...

The mod itself with only the straps it is a pain in the ass to do, specially even with the spacer, once you apply tim on the die and the spacer, the spacer would stay in place...
Trying to adjust the block and do pressure on it is 2 different things, have to take the video card out so i can adjust even more the pressure on the block..
