But if you're doing heavy OCing at +20% PowerTune, I would assume that you have decent cooling. Your main concern then would be having a board that's engineered to withstand the TDP you're allowing the card to hit. You know, maybe they used cheaper caps/VRMs or less power phases than somebody else's, and that could cause problems.
As with anything, you generally get what you pay for. I love the R7970 Lightnings myself.
//EDIT: I accidentally a word.

I am using powercolor 7970 dual fan. My experience with other AMD reference cooler was not the best. This card cools the core pretty well and I am pretty happy with it. As great as watercooling sounds, I just dont think it will be that practical.

I did heard XFX sometimes uses cheaper stuff on their PCB.....................

I feel like I kinda got skipped in the middle of this debate. Any Help guys?

^I would say you are probably where you should at.... might be a bit lower but nothing to panic over imo.

Thanks for the reply. I used to have a 6950 that would push 6900P so I guess I was just hoping for a bigger jump. lol

You oced the 6950 pretty far probably and your 7950 oc would = to a stock 7970 GE imo. So it would be a 25ish increase I guess.

All I want to do is play my games and don't have loads of time to game never mind try fix buggy drivers.
Thanks to all who have tried to help. And if i get the same driver issues with the GTX680 my computer will be booted through the window one last time smile.gif

 

 

Drivers haven't even loaded yet at post, so that is not drivers, sounds like a fault with the card itself, send it back.

I played around with mine for a while, I can't seem to get past 1030mhz core clock, but with 1030/1575 I got P8485. I would like to go higher but it would appear I drew a short straw and got a lower tolerance chip frown.gif. Its not too bad though, the performance increase was still significant enough.

Im looking at the Sapphire as my 2nd card.. cause if this one poops out on me and i rma with the egg.. ill get a sapphire to replace it.. which i should have in the first place..
Think if i pushed it i could get more out of it..
But im quite happy with 1200/1600 makes it faster then my 590 and that is all that mattered to me.

You mean 1.18V right? 1.8V would be very odd.
As for the card, I would probably wait for the new monitor, maybe try a different cable, adapter & different pci-e slot. It may well be an issue with the card, but ruling out other possible issues first never hurts.

Yeah, you're right I oc'd the 6950 hard and flashed 6970 bios. So I guess I just had high hopes for 10k...*sigh*
