Get a DisplayPort to HDMI cable. You'll get the clear picture of DVI and sound.

You need dual link at 1080p 120Hz, at 60Hz it is not needed.

Aquacomputer is a good block, I have two of them.

I don't know if the sapphire OC dual X 7970 is a reference board, the blocks are made for reference boards.

 

Edit: Looks to be reference alright

Yes that is what it looks to be, I edited my previous post with pictures.

Notice the missing VRM on my MSI HD7970

my only peeves about Cat 12.7 so far, which may have been something else...

-Updating to 12.7 from 12.6 Beta 1 wiped my custom settings for Fan Speeds/Overclock, So I had to re-input them in, might have wiped my other CCC settings leading to problems below.
(on the brighter side, I can OC 125 more Mhz stable w/o Voltage increase, but I will stay at my proven 1Ghz (stock volts) on cooler days and factory stock 900Mhz (undervolted) on the hot summer days, didn’t see no temp increase running Furmark @ 1Ghz, but I don’t wanna push the GPU or VRMs in the hot summer days)

- it wiped my Eyefinity group completely
On my System, I set the bezel correction and then set the desktop back to the normal non corrected res., but run the games in the corrected resolutions), after updating to 12.7, I had to re-do all the bezel correction settings and stuff. For some reason it kicked the screens out of eyefinity mode to Extended desktop Mode, and deleted the group. I had to re-build the group, resolution, screen position, preferred screen and bezel correction again.

- Battlefield 3 kept dropping VSync to 30 Frames Sec for no reason... and every now and then back up to 60 Fr/ps (never did that before.)
And on some areas below 20 Frames/sec,never had that problem before either, but I fixed it
I had to change Graphics Preset to AUTO to get it to stay on 60 frames/sec Vsync. then go back to custom and put everything back the way I had it.
After I re-did those settings the Frames Per second instantly jumped back up to the 55-70 range, actually noticeably higher frames/sec across the board (by 5-10%)

- So did AMD sneak in an Adaptive VSync like nVidia's?

-Running the Taskbar on the Center screen only causes conflicts in BF3 and some other games.
In BF3 Bringing up the Map caused a Resolution change, which made all 3 screens go blank and come back, closing the map caused the same thing, quiting out of BF3 also revealed that Windows was having a Fit and Changing the desktop from Aero to Non Aero.

In Thirdwire Flight sims, Changing the View from internal to external caused the same thing.

I Ended up putting the task bar back across all 3 screens and windows stopped doing it, might have been something else causing it, but leaving the taskbar across all 3 screens stopped whatever was causing it.

-Full screening a window on one screen is a pain in the whoo hoo, as 99% of the time it goes across all 3 screens, and that 1 % it doesnt is when you want it too, lol...
Im forced to just manually size everything now. I know there’s gotta be a trick/button sequence to fill current screen or something.

Some Flash Video Websites do not scale properly on the center screen when in full screen. (This has been an issue ever since I started using Eyefinity)
- some youtube videos full screen on the center screen and still go 3 or 4 inches onto the side screens (super wide screen).
- HBOGo/MaxGO, both do no even center properly, the video is half on the left screen and half on the center, the only way to fix is is to not full screen it, or run a 4th monitor as an extended display

- some youtube videos full screen on the center screen and still go 3 or 4 inches onto the side screens (super wide screen).
- HBOGo/MaxGO, both do no even center properly, the video is half on the left screen and half on the center, the only way to fix is is to not full screen it, or run a 4th monitor as an extended display
+rep!
Great feedback on 12.7, much appreciated! I started a thread in the driver section of the AMD GPU forum in regards to 12.7 feedback, if you could post your findings there I, and probably many others, would appreciate it when doing some 12.7 researching thumb.gif
And this goes for everyone if they could, just to ease our researching efforts in terms of our driving info
