So why is it a bad thing for us XFX buyers if the card can do better than most? Stock cooling?

I'm still having issues with MSI Afterburner reading GPU2 (in CFX) temperatures... Can you guys take a look at the thread I just made about the issue? Posted screenshots and such that will hopefully help.
I'm running 2.2.1 MSI AB, it also affected me in 2.2.2... I'm using 12.7 beta as well for CCC.

Any and all advice is welcome, I just wanna see how my darling 7950 is taking to the heat -.-

Running 2 7970 lightnings in crossfire, recently I experienced a crash while watching a league of legend replay, that made my screen lock up with some weird colored lines, no desktop or anything just these lines in a straight vertical pattern. Anyone know if this could be a driver issue or hardware related? Ill post a picture if it happens again.

I got crashing in LoL whenever I was OCing my cards with CFX enabled...
Not to mention the whole HUD and everything flashing and going crazy whenever I start a game.

I had the flashing issue aswell fixed it by running League in windowed mode, so far it has been the only crash I've had and I wasn't even playing -.-. I went to get a snack and when I came back it all I saw was a vertical colored pattern of lines. Hope it doesn't happen again, still bothers me cause I dont know what exactly causes it. Just hope it isn't hardware related. Anyone else had this issue?

Not mine but it sort of looked like that.

Running anything in window mode means Xfire is not active, probably why there's no crash. Could be your second card though. Try using single cards and if the issue is repeatable on single card configuration. You'll need to swap the cards out for this.

after flashing the shaders were not unlocked:mad: but went from 240gbs to 264gbs, 880core to 1010core, 1250mem to 1375mem, 1.031volts stock to 1.024volts stock and it runs cooler jealoussmiley.gif i don't get it but what ever, and i have it hooked up in my bedroom to the hdmi and it still works, if i were you before you flash your card look at the card that that the bios your going to flash, look at the back plate and make sure that the ports are the same number and type ex: 1 dvi 1 hdmi and 3 mini hdmi ect, just make sure its the same as your card i learned this from flashing nvidia cards, as long as the ports are the same and ram is the same size 90% of the time it will work flawless the other 10% needs more voltage thumb.gif

At full load the top card is always the hottest reguardless of what the monitor is plugged into, it is due to the backplate. Before the card had backplate all the temps where within 1c of each other with the backplate at full load its 5c higher but at idle its 0c-1c higher not noticable.


Again, the active card is carrying the load so it will be ACTIVE all the time. Since it is active, it is generating heat. The other cards are basically in low powerstate or shut off entirely.


Now whether you got good temps or not in your loop well, that's up to your loop and how good of a contact (TIM spread) you got on the cores. The fact that the main card is always active and always carries a load can't be argued. Anyways, I did say that a backplate can hold the heat in. You should re-read my post. I also wrote that it's offset in a watercooled setup because it runs much cooler and the backplate is used as a heatsink for the vrms as in ek's plate.

Sorry, I don't know what you're carrying on about. I only commented onyour implication that because your xfx card can run at X clock, that xfx is in return awesome sauce. That's what I read and commented on. Overclocks are not a result of the brand and purely up to luck.

Again. My cards are on 24/7 as in all three cards are at 99% load 24/7 not idle with desktop and not lowered clocks on the slave cards. The temps don't change with or without monitor plugged in it don't matter. The load I put on the cards in the background is far more than intensive then what desktop does. In fact the card with the desktop sometimes drops 1c because its taking up lighter resources then the heavy background process that I run 24/7 so the card with desktop some times get slightly cooler because its has more of a balanced load on it rather than full throttle load like all the other cards do. My cards are warmer with this load than any game I know of, When I game my temps go down. I know you don't understand what I'm saying cause you said power state. You live by me you can come and see if you don't believe me. But this is a misunderstanding and I wasn't clear enough before I think you get the point now right ?
