I have freezing issues as well unless i load up a custom fan profile, i think maybe your cards get used better with the new drivers and they are heating up more. once i load up a custom fan profile, i never get graphics driver crashes.

Any idea where I can buy VRM cooling for my 7970's in the UK?

My god, do all 301 posts from you have this horrible grammar / spelling?

Ehm, my 7970 does about 160 amps on that voltage, meaning roughly 200-210w of power consumption. This is measures solely on BF3 and what I saw as highest in AIDA64.

Not cool man.^ His main language may not be English. Lets not try to embarrass any of our colleagues, We all have something in common and that's our appreciation for these great cards. Lets not dampen anyone's spirits and cause them to stop coming here for help.thumb.gifthumb.gif

Are any other users experiencing flashes of black shortly after startup on 12.8? Mine happen about 5 seconds after I make it to my desktop. They happen only on startup and not after that.

So I'm about to pay for a HIS Radeon 7950 3GB it's the IceQ Turbo, are these any good? I know a single one beats 2x 6850s and even 2x 560ti's.
What are HIS like with warranties also?

I'm selling my 6850's for a small loss for this upgrade, I'm hoping that it should run BF3 on ultra or close enough to. thumb.gif

Ive read alot about the HIS 7950 IceQ as I was going to buy it also and this is what I got out of reviews

 

+ IceQ HSF assembly is good
+ Fan on auto is virtually silent
+ Excellent build quality
+ Excellent performance 
+ Factory overclocked to 900MHz
+ Variety of outputs: Mini Display Port, DVI-I and HDMI
+ Good power consumption
+ Support for 2/3/4-way CrossFire

Best Cooling Performance: HIS HD 7950 IceQ Turbo

The DHE cooling solution on HIS' HD 7950 IceQ Turbo really works. Not only does it cool well, but it outperforms the thermal solutions of the other cards we tested. It also manages to beat them in the gaming benchmarks without generating that much extra noise.

The HIS 7950 is $300 AUD and around $320 with shipping + CC.
A decent 7870 is $300+ and a 7850 is $275. I did find a nice MSI 7870 Hawk on eBay for $280 shipped. But I figured the 7950 was a better buy being new also.
I should be able to max BF3 though yes?

I edited my above post also for you to see. As to maxing out BF3 I cannot tell you for sure as I atm do not play BF3. I played through the single player with my gtx 580 but I have not touched the game since. Others may be able to help you there
