12.7 and 12.8 were fine for a while, but the blacks screen/vertical lines have been happening every day for the last 2 weeks. I just installed another SSD and did a clean windows install. same crap. couldn't play GW2 for more than 2 minutes. I went back to 12.6 and downloaded 12.4 just in case and it's be fine ever since. curious though, I was able to bench my card and play games with a very high overclock (1250mhz) when I first bought it and that was on 12.7 beta. for the past two weeks anything over 1125mhz and the stupid black/grey screen with vertical lines. well not anymore since going back to 12.6 yesterday. meanwhile my brother has been playing fine with 12.7beta/12.8 on his 7850. frown.gif

Whats the best overclocking software for 7970 with these new drivers?
Ive been using Sapphire TriXX, but I dont really like it, althought it let me get super high voltage on the cards

I did both, and I've enabled unofficial overclocking, I've done the -xcl method. It lets me dial up my overclock. I'll set it at 1275/1675, save it to profile 1. As soon as I save it, it reverts the saved profile back to stock settings again. Does the same thing if I click the "Apply" button as well.
Only solution I've found is running Sapphire TriXX, and opening it and switching profiles manually to my overclock. I got the modded version that allows me to modify the memory voltage and I can achieve the same clocks as Afterburner used to allow... it just doesn't switch profiles for 2D and 3D clocks on its own which can be a pain.
I have no clue why it stopped working. It stopped working originally BEFORE I even updated from 12.4 drivers. I figured, well, the overclock is busted, might as well install the latest drivers. Still didn't work. Figured, well, I'm still running MSI AB 2.2.0, might as well install the latest version. Still didn't work. Tried everything under the sun, battled it for about 7 hours straight (wound up staying up until 5AM that day, lol). Gave up, installed TriXX and just manually control it.
The big thing I don't like about TriXX, aside from the lack of the 2D and 3D profiles, is the fact that it's using around 1/2GB of RAM at the moment. Seems to be a quite a bit of memory... lol. Luckily I have 16GB.

No I think we have different issues. I want to revert what the xcl method does. You sound like you need that catalyst patch that was posted on here a few pages back.

How do you do that?

O and IMO the Best Software is MSI AB Unofficial version IF you can get it to work thumb.gif

Its just the bonus u get with Sapphire TriXX i guess tongue.gif
GPU-Z have read 1.3+V on my cards (they are watercooled)
post #15226 of 38704
So what do you guys think is the best 7970 regardless of price in terms of overclocking and cooling? I had an ASUS DirectCU II TOP a few months back but returned it due to the VRM temps. I'm thinking about picking up one or two of the MSI 7970 Lightnings since I see Newegg has finally started to mark them down.

Hi,

Would a Gigabyte WF3 HD7950 be a good upgrade from a 7850?

At the moment for bench comparisons I get this on my 7850 overclocked. 1200/1450.

Capture-10.png

I just want to know if what performance benefits I'd get if I "upgrade"? The HD7950 is £240 and if I sell my current card I should get around £110

Gaming on a single monitor 1080p, I like to play FPS and RPG's like BF3 and Metro 2033.

Thanks

I'm still wondering this as well. The Lightnings are crazy sexy looking, it seems like all the other cards have blue PCBs. wth.gif

Sapphire Dual-X has a black PCB, ASUS comes with a nice backplate, and there are probably some others.

At the same clocks HD 7950 is 40% faster than HD 7850. If you get a slightly lower overclock of 1.1 Ghz you will still be 30% or more faster. clock for clock HD 7950 is 3 - 5% slower than HD 7970.

here is a comparison of HD 7850 (1050 Mhz) and HD 7950 (1050 Mhz). Both are stock voltage overclocks.
