[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 1474

post #14731 of 38701
I just received my 7950 yesterday (HIS IceQ) but literally from the get-go the fans have been running 100%. The iTurbo program doesn't show an accurate fan percentage and it cannot be controlled. Afterburner and Catalyst Control Centre cannot change this either. iTurbo says the fan is always going ~3000RPM.
I have tried re-seating the graphics card twice. Temperatures seem good - 30 degrees Celsius when idle and 50 when stressed for 10mins in arkham city maxed settings at 1080p (didn't want to do more in case it damaged the card). Otherwise the card seems to work fine as far as I can tell. I have installed the latest version of all the listed software and tried the latest drivers and some older ones (both HIS and AMDs). The problem was present from the first time the card was used and the rest of the computer works fine. The problem is present when using HDMI as well and is present from before the BIOS and during windows (so all the time). The graphics card settings have not been touched (i.e. it has not been overclocked at all from out of the box).
Any idea what could be wrong? I've been in contact with HIS but so far they've just told me to do things I've already done. Thanks in advance and sorry if this is in the wrong place! I'm new here! My build is in my sig (I think)

It looks like Sapphire Trixx did the "trick" with the higher voltage cap. wink.gif

Here's Heaven 3.0 with 1250/1600 1.38v/1.625v. I really want to break the 1400 score with 1080p maxed settings.

How are you adjusting the memory voltage using Trixx? Out of the blue my Afterburner stopped saving profiles and keeping OCs, so I want to use Trixx... but with only core voltage control it kinda sucks :/

I'm using MSI Afterburner to adjust the memory clock/voltage, but I did add the 2 missing .dll files and used the -xcl method for MSI AB. My clocks and profiles stick, so I don't have your problem.

For Trixx, I'm only adjusting the core clock/voltage.

Here is 1275/1600, just shy of 1400. Looks like my card wasn't as bad as I thought! biggrin.gif

Yay! biggrin.gif

Congrats. looking forward to you posting some OC benchmarks with clocks, voltage, fan speeds,temps . Sapphire trixx is a good software you could use for overclocking.

I like Afterburner, I've been using it since the 4850 I had almost 2 years ago.. If it supports it i'll be sticking to it smile.gif

Maybe your case has terrible airflow for such a high end card?

Wow that mod is a life saver! Now I don't have to use both. +rep to both you and lsdmeasap. Here I thought my card was a bad clocker, but all it took was switching from MSI AB to Sapphire Trixx.

Broke 1400 with 1285/1600! Goal reached! thumb.gif

How much improvement in percentage compared to stock clocks? biggrin.gif

Earlier today I ordered a Powercolor HD 7950 PCS+, just have to wait a few days until I can play biggrin.gif
