Those are beautiful OZ drool.gif
Hopefully they'll give nice yield's if you put them under water, must be like an oven in there with air

You don't really believe that you require 7970 tri fire for a 5 year old game do you? doh.gif

I've been able to max out Cowadooty with a 9800GT at 2560x1600, and keep 60+ FPS. It's really not that hard of a game to max out, regardless of which iteration it is. It's all the same game since CoD4 (in 2007).

True. my old 9800GX2 did Black Ops on 1920x1080 with 100+ FPS all maxed. No difference at all in gameplay between that, my 6950 and my 7970..

AMD has just recently greatly improved crossfire performance for HD7950.

I returned one of my 7970 for the same reason.. Think my 6870's were doing better cf scaling and performance than 2 7970's..

So i decided to step back for better performance per your money....

Cowadooty seriously?? lol

Other than the damn sleep bug I haven't had any issues at all. I've also found scaling to be excellent overall so I'm curious to know what problems you're having? I had two 5770s in crossfire once upon a time and believe me things have come a long way...

They are awesome on hashcat tho ç_Ç

Im running these in a rack mount case with 3x 3000rpm 120mm fans running right through them. 5 hours of online gaming these stay at 50c with 50% fan speed. Can see better pics in this thread of the case.
http://www.overclock.net/t/1224972/tpu-msi-r7970-lightning-graphics-card-showcased-at-cebit/210
My next step is water cooling once EK releases blocks for these cards and this unit > ERM-3K3UC Liquid Cooling System
http://koolance.com/erm-3k3uc-liquid-cooling-system-copper - will post pics once completed somewhere on this site. .
All will be rack mounted in the Triplite 48U Rack witch is temp messy.

No but there is more going on to what I do. :-) and the end result. My desk top will consist of 5 monitors min. I also only use AMD cards due to the display-port options.
ASUS had me with the DCUii cards but was a crossfire fail - MSI took second with the mini display-port options.
These cards will be signal sent over Gefen display-port extenders / booster / repeaters how ever you want to call them and a Gefen USB Toolbox from a room other than my work space.
These are work stations with 6x Dell 30" displays. This is the business Im in and the kinda setup powers I need to work and have fun. wink.gif
I also will have a air controlled environment with supplemental air from triplite
