No problems here, That is 1.2705

AB will let you take it to 1.3 , but has a lid of 1390 on the core clock,

Never enve looked at Overdrive long enough to see where the lid was

I just thought you always wanted to max out Powertune in CCC first so you could get the max limit for the cards power draw. Are people now noticing that it is no longer required to even worry about Powertune when OC their cards in AB? Are the power draws on the cards not nearing or exceeding the limit without upping Powertune?

TBH never messed with it, have been using AB for years and or RIVA on older cards

I will have to take a closer look at Overdrive

Lightnings may be close ........ thumb.gif

I noticed they are selling it through Tiger Direct. Go to Tiger Direct and they aren't selling it at all which I find odd. I have a suspicion it's actually the reference MSI AMD 7970 and they have labeled it incorrectly. I could be wrong but that's my guess.

Another point is it's being sold for $579.99 and I doubt the TF III version will be sold for same price as the reference. I expect the TF III version to come in at $659.99 USD.

Not having a pic doesn't mean anything though because even if you go to MSI's website, you won't even see a pic of the reference version either and that's definitely on sale.

Be leary of that purchase. May end up a waste of time if the reference model comes to your door.

What does it mean when you have a grey 8 pin, and a black 6 pin? tongue.gif

Seems to me like the higher VID cards have a better maximum clock. All of the lower VID cards I see do clocks up to ~1,175 or so at max, but with lower voltage than the 1.17V cards.

So to me, you don't want the "grey 6 pin" or the 1.05v cards for the best overclocking as it seems like you can't take those past 1.25volts before they artifact like crazy. I haven't installed my card yet, but I've got a black 6 pin HIS card so I'll check my VID on the weekend when I get it installed - but I have a waterblock for it, so I'm betting mine will reach higher clocks because of the ability to take more voltage smile.gif

I'd caution some of you guys against going bonkers over vid. Look at the leakage with Intel i7's. Some of the hotter chips clocked farther than the lower voltage chips. Then look at the people who have low vid 7970s that can't overclock to save themselves.

It's way too early to start the vid panic man.

What tool are you using to test for errors?

Unigine Heaven benchmark thumb.gif
I dont get it though, i can push the card up to 1200mhz and if i don't touch the voltage it wont artifact, but it just locks up after a bit frown.gif
oh well, 1150MHz @ 1140mv is pretty good imo

to reduce heat output and power usage. Technically im not actually undervolting it im just setting it back lower than AB set it to by default (my card is a 1050mv)
