Same here. I sent it back and the seller is fighting me arguing its my psu. I tested it thourougly and tested a few gpu(s) as well. I've had whine on other gpus (both sides) in the past but it was very minute and eventually it went away.

I've read quite a few cases on the 7970s. But, it does happen all the time on all types of cards (most notably the highend ones). Sometimes its barely audible, some times its crazy high.

But I thought your getting artifacts when running at 1100? Normally you get rid of artifacts by increasing voltage so I thought you increased your voltage.

What's your stock voltage?

Ok I removed 12.9 and put 12.8 back on, removed msi afterburner and left CCC's Overdrive up to check clocks. After a few minutes, my gpu usage will shoot up to 100% while im sitting idle at the desktop. I'm at a lost here frown.gif

Edit: I'm running one monitor thru displayport if that matters.

Hey guys,

Wondering if anyone has similar experiences. My card is reference, but does 1225/1800 @ 1.25V with no artifacts. The problem, is that to run it at this speed, my fan setting has to be quite high cause as soon as I hit 80~C I start to get artifacts. If I keep it under that, no problem runs great. However, the reference cooler is loud as ****, so I was wondering if my temperatures were normal?

Even idle Im at 65C?
EDIT: Might be cause i have two monitors

You are correct on both accounts. That is a high overclock for a reference card cooler design, so load temperatures will be high unless you turn fans way up.

Radeon cards run warmer / at higher clocks with more than one monitor.

Cool, thanks.

Do you think adding side panel fans (2x120mm) would make a discernible difference? I didn't play with it long cause they rattled the side panel and it made me mad

Do you have rubber mounts? If not, you can use double-sided foam tape between the fans and the case side to dampen vibrations (you don't need to peel the paper off one side - just stick small squares onto the fans around the screws.

It could possibly help, difficult to say... depends on overall airflow in your case and location of side fans. Worth a try though!

Got my Vapor-X to 1070/1600 stable on the stock 0.975v (GPU-Z records .987 or so.) Temps typically stay around the low 50s for the core and VRAM for most games and benchmarks. Sleeping Dogs is very close to a torture test as it ran my card up to 59C and VRAM temps of 70C. But that could just be playing completely maxed out. Otherwise I'm extremely happen with this card, hopefully they'll resolve the voltage problem soon (Can't change it with 12.8, even if I force it.) Will also be Crossfiring it soon, either with another 7950 Vapor-X or the 7970 Vapor-X. In the mean time here's my Heaven score.

That's quite low! My factory-overclocked Sapphire Dual-X voltage is 1.174V according to Afterburner. I definitely don't think it needs that much for a low factory overclock.
