I have tried everything humanly possible to figure it out. lets say you straff side to side you can see it skip. Not like Vsync being off it just skips. like a split second hang. It does this a little while just walking straight also. 

I also notice that every once in awhile my desktop will flicker. just for a split second. I used onboard for a week and never encountered this.

Nope, they be for single cards too. Read the readme on each individual CAP file for the description of improvements. You could have bad hardware, or not who knows. But what we can do is get you on a proper driver and your driver subsystem cleaned up to remove a driver issue from the equation.

First thing I would do is perform a clean uninstall. In other words a manual uninstall and clean your registry. Then install a 12.6 whql and the latest CAP. This will put you on a solid baseline. In a worst case scenario, I might go all the way back to RC11, my favorite kickarse super speed driver. You can find the manual uninstall process below. I can do a manual uninstall in about 5 minutes, click click click etc. Take yer time. The basics are uninstall the driver, thru the driver *.exe, uninstall CIM thru control panel, delete registry entries, delete vga devices in device manager, reboot, reboot, delete leftover drivers, reboot, take a breath, install 12.6, reboot and install CAP.

ok i will do that. This is the second 7950 ive been through. I have tried tons of things. I never did try 12.6 or caps tho. I always tried the 12.7's. I will give this a shot. I tried swapping out my mobo, ssd, memeory (Not PSU), tried almsot every tweak I could find. i will be back as soon as I get this uninstalled and done with results.

The card does not run correctly. I followed your entire steps and it still skips but even worse now. I am done with it. Issues an RMA/Return this is not worth it.

The flicker is one of the joys of using the current AMD drivers. I sent my MSI 7950 back because I thought AMD had improved their drivers but I was wrong. I tried my 7950 with AMD 12.7 drivers on two completely different computers that I have, both had stuttering in some games and I had that stupid flicker in every single game. I wanted to give them another chance but they blew it. I'm not buying that both computers I have are bad.

What happened to your other 7950? You mentioned you did an RMA?

Mesh on High, and especially Ultra takes a lot of fps.. i run mine on Medium.

Sorry to hear that. Since you're rma'ing anyways, try the RC11 driver. It's the one driver that supports hardware the best in my experience. You can simply just uninstall the current driver thru the exe, then the CIM, CAPS, and reboot, and install the RC11. You don't have to do the file delete and registry clean since it's already clean if you followed the steps in the thread.

Give it a try. If it's still borked, there's no doubt in my mind that it's hardware (assuming the rest of your rig is fine). thumb.gif

I am editing this just because it may NOT be the video card but possible Bios settings problems. I will update later after I get another game or two installed.

Which version of 7970 has the best temperature/noise ratio?

Wouldn't that be the Sapphire 7970 Dual-X? I think so.
I wonder how Sapphire's new 7970 Vapor-X does against it though?

I am debating on whether to get either one of those cards myself. Choices, choices...
