I appreciate the kind words and I hope all is well also. I really cant live without playing my games. I have been going absolutely nuts this past 1 1/2 weeks since RMA and Im starting to lose focus. I have really bad Anxiety & OCD (with Panic attacks) and Ive been gaming since I was very young and when I cant get on to play I start to lose focus and it makes everything worse. I should not of sold my 6870 that I was using cause my 580 crapped out on me until I fully tested that 7950
I also had to rma one out of my two cards today. Instead of sending to newegg like you did I just sent it two msi don't even want the hassle you went threw with that game voucher. Hopefully the turn around is fast I live close enough that they get it the next day on regular shipping. Crossing my fingers.

What was wrong with the card you had to RMA?

Wow. Stop right there. You need to read more. Unofficial is not compatible with -xcl which is a loophole to use official overclock method. So do not do both.

When i add -xcl, afterburner will not run after clicking on it? This is driving me insane if i dont add -xcl and enable unofficial overclocking via cfg, my clocks set to zero upon opening msi and it wont let me o.c

Ok, the -xcl switch is just to tell AB to create new modified Powerplay Tables in the registry. All it does is unlock the overclock limits of Overdrive. Note you won't be using Overdrive at all. You'll instead be using AB but using AB just as default with only the check marks for unlocking voltage. Don't do anything in AB's config file, that method is for "unofficial method" whereas you'll be using "official method."

When you add -xcl to the AB shortcut, it doesn't run, it merely imports the Powerplay Tables as mentioned above. Once that's done, you have to then remove the -xcl you added, and reboot. Upon reboot, you can open up AB and overclock like normal.

**There are a couple caveats with the -xcl method. The most annoying is that AB cannot edit the Powerplay Tables of more than 1 card. And that 1 card is only the active card so if you have crossfire you will have to jump thru some hurdles. There's a trick to add all the Powerplay Tables for ppl in crossfire in that link.

**The other annoyance is that you will have to redo the -xcl method after each driver install.

**Also, you will need the clock control files.


It's also a good idea if you are crossfired, to do this on a cleaned registry so you know which Radeon folder to edit.

Which cards are the best choice, The MSI 7970 Lighting, or any of the other 7970 GHZ edition cards? Im looking to run a 5 monitor set up, much appreciated input on the lightings and ghz cards from personal experiences. And yes I will be buying 2 cards to crossfire smile.gif. I love my gtx 680 sli, but I want the extra gb of memory and add 2 more screens to my portrait set up.

Question for you guys. How does this compare to the GTX 670? At stock it seems to lose out but what about MAX OC? With the 12.6 or 12.7 drivers. It's been a while since I've bought anything ATI but I'm thinking about it
