I do have a tiny ITX case
EDIT::
Quick game of BF3 on Grand Bazzar and what would you know.....55+ FPS......after I installed 12.7 but CCC says 12.8 still and so does MSI AB.
Max GPU Temp 82* C
VRM 1: MAX 90*C
VRM 2: MAX 80*C
is that bad?

you can try and test on an open bench. see how the card fares . its a bit of work but might be well worth it. if it overheats in open test bench i would return the card. 82c core temps at 950 Mhz is not normal.

Those DC2 HD7970 had some serious issues, poor stability,crashes,VRM overheating etc.

And also many of them were Voltage locked: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=168143

I would look elsewhere if I were you..

Yeah when you are testing on the open bench try a lot of cases. first stock and auto fan, then overclocked and auto, then overclocked and manual fan speed at 50 - 70% , then overclocked and custom fan curve with trixx or afterburner. you will get an idea if that card is worth keeping or not.

I use HWinfo32 and in Furmark i hit 65c with the fan speed at 50% and VRM temps hit 49c . i run the benchmark preset 1080 with 8x MSAA which takes a little over a min . I don't run the Burn in.

 

I am using HWiNFO64. I know my temps are safe. Is there a difference between HWiNFO64 & HWiNFO32 ?. I cant get over 50% fan speed on this card anything over 40% starts to get loud. I keep it 50% max & with no OC as I said temps stay decent. Ill get more accurate temps today

Hi guys in the market for a new card and after looking at prices a 7950 looks like my next upgrade after I sort out a CPU... what I'm wondering is, what are the chance of getting an MSI Power Edition 7950. I love the look of MSI coolers and that blue would look awesome with what I've got in mind.

I have the same CPU clocked at 4Ghz and a 7950 dual-x clocked at 1150/1550. The cpu does not bottleneck the the gpu it always runs at 99% in BF3, cpu-s load is between 75-95% soo the cpu u have is just fine.
post #15290 of 38704

I know this is not a very long test but here is 25 mins of BF3 all settings at ultra. I do not see what others see tho. my GPU fluctuates in all games. I do not see 99% GPU usage. If I run Heaven my GPU will ping at 99% during Heaven but in games I do not see 99% GPU Usage
