Well shoot. BF3 still hates it. I upped to 1150/1600 and BF3 goes to black screen when my soldier dies. What gives???

I have a couple of questions, rather newbish so bare with me! :3

Firstly, does the Driver Version / Afterburner version affect temperatures? if so... I'm on 12.6 and 2.2.2 - are those bad for it?

Secondly, if any of you play Guild Wars 2, which driver version have you found best for it?


Using a single 7950 here

Not using afterburner, but using Trixxx on my 7950, also using 12.6 drivers since day one! Haven't got any problem at all yet with my 12.6 drivers thumb.gif

Hi to all... I´ll share my results with my new ring...

I´ll would to say that my ATI 7970 has some coil whine buzz under load, but I´m very happy with the results.

What do you think about the results?.

FRACTAL DESIGN R3 WHITE
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
PHENOM II X4 980BE
HIS 7970 ICE Q2 GHZ EDITION

Hello there biggrin.gif I just bunt in my new Sapphire HD 7970 Vapor-X Ghz edition! 1175mhz core/ 1550 mem and got it from the egg. Super happy with the card so far. I could use a little help from some overclocking experts to break the 1200mhz core cieling I hit though. Anyone over 1200mhz core stable?
post #16128 of 38704
^^ >1200 is rare air, keep it cool, maybe leave the mem at stock and try the core first.
But no matter what I do, 1200 is my max.
Maybe winter time temps will help.

Finally bested my 5870 CFX GPU score, took 2 gens of cards.

Ok so just got done with pass 2 on mark 11and I am pretty optimistic that this thing will do 1200mhz core. Check this out smile.gif

Not bad for a single card imo.

Here's my first 3DMark11 score. CPU at 4.5 Ghz, 7970 at 1150/1600.
