My card does not seem as stable as yesterday. At stock volts I can't get past 1150/1500 in Heaven 3.0. I was able to pass @ 1200/1550 @ 1.2v and 1225/1600 @ 1.256v. Funny thing is I am stable in BF3, Skyrim and OCCT (3.1) @1200/1600 on stock volts with no errors. I decided to install the 12.4 driver, and no change.
My ASIC is horrid (61.4%) is this pretty much it with the voltage? If so... kinda disappointing.
Any tips of suggestions are appreciated. I tried with power limit at 0 and 20, and it does not really make a difference unless I am at stock clocks. Trying to root out peoples settings, especially those with a Lightning, but it's head with 1230 pages lol!
Thanks in advance!

Seems strange, but there's been a lot of strange things with these 7970's rolleyes.gif .. Try moving up slowly. You mite have something running in the background that wasn't running yesterday?? If you change driver versions, you should probably reinstall the program first before ruling out anything. BF3 is the most intensive I've seen compared to a benchmark. I've passed 3dmark11 at 1250/1750 and crashed BF3 in second's. Couldn't even run1200/1600 @ same voltage as running 3dmark11.

dude!! is not your overclock! is the drivers!


AMD catalyst 12.4 also crash in BF 3 every few seconds launching it! Moving back to AMD 12.1 and 11.12 doesnt have this issue. AMD 12.5 and 12.4 occur randomly! Keep me up to date on your status and your card!

Was busy yesterday..
Anyway i didnt knew heaven version 3.0 was ever released.
After all, i left my memory at 1375, after all in last time, i dont play anything demanding. And also i am glad to hear i am not the only one with 1400 memory speed drop.biggrin.gif
Thx for help.

Just to note, I used to have my cards at 1775 memory and never had any crashes gaming. When I properly benched crysis 2 (which LOVES the memory OC) I had to drop it down significantly.
post #12295 of 38701
I'm running mem at 1675Mhz and I did need a slight boost in vmem to 1618mV to be 100% stable.

Notice the mem OC quite well in BF3 on all Ultra, 16x AF, 2x AAA in CCC, no motion blur, HBAO and FXAA enabled both in-game and via the injector.

FPS is much more stable and GPU usage is a nice flat line on 100% even tho i'm temporary running a 2500k at 4.2 cause my 2600k is away for testing under a SS cooler to find his max multi wink.gif

I noticed lol! I was so iffy on getting anything this generation, but my 5850's 1GB VRAM was really holding me back. I did reinstall Heaven during the driver switching process, still get the same issue. I don't think there was anything out of the ordinary running in the background. Since it is performing really well in games, I will most likely keep it at stock volts 24/7... for now. Upping the voltage did seem to help the Heaven issue though.

I was also getting a GPU usage spike ever few seconds. I adjusted the voltage as seems to have gone away... for now...

I guess I'm one of the lucky ones being able to enjoy their games with 12.4.

Question: Is there a way to get memory slider over 1600 in AB without enabling unofficial OC?

Thanks!

What exact settings do you play?

Ultra everything, all settings their highest, if I remember correctly. I'll have to check later on this evening. I'm folding in Linux for the next 4 hours or so (til I get home from the mother-in-law's house at 7:30PM EST)

Sorry about not getting back to you last night about that... yes, every single setting maxed out in BF3 pulls 60fps, it dips down to about 53 occasionally while folding at the same time.

Without vsync enabled it is usually in the 70-85 range. peaks around 115fps. This is without Lucid VirtuMVP... I never installed that. Though I'm contemplating it wink.gif

About this Lucid VirtuMVP...
According to tsm I heard this is mostly for lower-end/middle-end cards.
The problem with this technology is that it is not an improvement for every game, possibly making the performance of some games worse instead of better...
But you are free to try it ofcourse thumb.gif

Unstable overclock or bad driver install.
