Well I upgraded my 7950 (GB Windforce) for a 7970 (XFX with Acellero). Very pleased so far. ASIC 72%. Just have standard OC Core 1125 with Memory 1575. According to the ASIC the voltage was at 1175. Sure enough my VRM temps were up to 90 degrees with BF3 with extended play on max settings. I actually lowered the voltage to 1150 and the temps are now staying around 62 deg with some augmented fan settings. Pretty pleased. Haven't been able to unlock OC further with AB no matter what (can't find the dll's yet). But won't be able to do much till I get a case fan directly on those VRMs. BTW got the 7970 with Accelero for $320 (used Can $)... less then my 7950!
