3: is the stock cooler a 2 part cooler (like the GTX 580 cooler) so that you can take off the Copper block on the GPU and still have a cooling plate (other half of stock cooler) still mounted on the cards over the VRM's. Or is it all one whole piece and I should buy VRM heatsinks aswell?
Thanks smile.gif

1. The EK-VGA Supreme HF is great. I was using 4 of those on my 4 Lightnings before. But the problem is that all the ''universal'' blocks are not fitting the new 7970. They need an ''adaptor'' (0.5mm piece of copper) to go between the block and card. Sigh. Universals are not universals LOL. EK are selling those little pieces for cheap.

2. Yes. It's REALLY important to put those on the VRMs and VRAM chips, or use a Swiftech Unisink instead. See 3.

3. No. Only non-reference cards like the Lightnings (and some others) are like that. But Swiftech are making some ''Unisinks'' that you can buy for cheap.

My Lightnings were like that. Remember the Mammoth Tanks in C&C? biggrin.gif

Because Trixx is showing the hardware data and could be the Vdroop.

 

Try Afterburner 2.2.0 Beta 11  Memory Voltage Contol for Reference 7970 - Afterburner 2.2.0 Beta

Doubt AMD is going to make them all black due to this. Besides why aren't they the same color to begin with? Who's working for them, color blind employees. They should all be same qaulity and color. Blame them for any inconsistencies.

Denim is a good OCN member and has been a contribution with his results to this club. Let's not nail him to the rafters people. That's my take. Back on subject

You can have good business and priority with a supplier without treating him like scum. It just shows what kind of character Denim carries, and he may be a good OCN member but he sounds like a disgraceful human being IMO.

Plus you also have to consider that now all those boxes he opened are technically open box products. I am sure nobody here would like to have bought a product that a supplier opened just to please one customer no matter how good of a customer they are.

Personally, if I knew my supplier had done this, they would have been getting my product back and I would have taken by business elsewhere.

Anyways, I guess something on topic, is there is any discussion on an ETA for a driver? Would be nice to see if AMD has come up with any big improvements on this card already. Its kind of sad that their driver department is in such a sad state of affairs..

Have AB also. Same story..... Only thing I can think of is that AB and Trixx 1.3v is not actually 1.3v, as both have same results. Any word yet on how to go past 1.3v on any site via software?

Ok, so I just checked, and it appears that my LOWER binned card with a VID of 1.17v has a grey connector, while the 1.05v one has a black connector?

EDIT: That is, unless Afterburner is doing that thing that it does with some cards where it reads the second GPU as GPU1 and the first as GPU2.

Does anyone here getting flashing lights now and again in Crysis 2?

running at 1200mhz @ 1.175v, if anyone else gets this flashing it would probably mean I am stable biggrin.gif

Dammit, I'll run it at stock and then at a slightly lower voltage and see if it still happens.
