Not sure what the date is, but I just sent it to you.

Is your MSI TF3 HD7950 the newest one built on a HD7970 PCB?

I have no idea, I just know that I got one with an 8pin and a 6 pin connector instead of two 6 pins.

If I cannot, under any circumstances in overdrive, get an overclock to work past 1040mhz, what exactly does that mean?

I mean firstly I haven't heard of anyone unable to clock lower than that, and ive looked. This annoys me significantly knowing thermally the card can do so much more, but something is holding me back with the core clocks, it would be just my luck to draw a card that barely passed quality control.

Could it be a software thing? Could changing voltages in afterburner do anything for it? Is there any possible solution at all or am I gonna have to live with it.

Wut card? ive went with the Sapphire non red OC ed they seem to be over clocking the best.

The Power color pc+ will hit 1250mhz with 1.3v but will crash think it is due to Vram heat.. since im RMAING thought id hit it with everything it had lol.

Its a Gigabyte windforce 3x 7950, (http://www.gigabyte.co.nz/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4121#ov) the same card (by the looks of it) as Blaze0303's, as you can see looking in his sig. His card managed to reach over 1200mhz core clock. Sure it doesn't state its for overclocking but look at the cooling and say that the card isn't meant for it in some way tongue.gif

Every card is different, man : \... What kind of volts were you throwing at it?

Yes that is my card, and I beleive that yours might be faulty. While I know that every card is differant. You should atleast be able to hit 1100/1575 without issues.

Yeah I understand that, I know how the binning process works and all, I believe I have just got a lower quality chip with quite small tolerances. I have tried (in overdrive) every voltage % from 0 to 20 in 5% gaps.

The main issue here is I cant request an RMA from my supplier because it doesn't overclock as well as I hoped. Gigabytes customer service is shocking, as much as I like to defend the brands of products I own. I have attempted an RMA with them for the coil whine the card produces which in some circumstances such as Crysis 1 sounds like a dying mouse. It seems their "customer support" is like a call center in some asian country (no offense intended that is my genuine impression due to the kind of replies I get and where the company is based), who is instructed to avoid all responsibility and lay it on the supplier. Of course the issue with any coil whine issue is they can be hard to replicate, if my supplier cannot replicate it, it states in their terms the item will be returned to me at my costs including labor costs. I have just attempted another RMA request, but I doubt it will be successful.
