Its to low clocks methinks, you got the same idle or? does YT works good for you, i'm using 12.7 beta, because it was very unstable on 12.9 flicker fest...

see the difference between idle and load.. it is normal..




and yeah i forgot i had some issues with youtube so i also disabled HW acceleration like that the above said to do and havernt issues with YT since smile.gif

so ive had two msi 7970's since they were released earlier and i just added them to my watercooling loop. so now im trying to overclock them to 1200/1500 but i hit a wall at 1100 or i should say i cant overclock to 1100 without artifacting, ive tried to read through the forums and did some searching but i cant find an answer to this little problem, check sig rig below for specs
post #16813 of 38701
My MSI R7950 finally made it biggrin.gif



My rig looked so lonely before without it

Thanks rep + ye i disabled HW accelaration, will report back if i have any issues after.

BTW great clock on memory there, and temps as well!

Can you please post GPU-Z with VRM temps after oc load with heaven max settings, (10+ mins run) thanks! thumb.gif

As for your problems - what Core and VRM temperatures are you seeing? (I'm sorry if you already said that earlier) Is this only at max load? Do you see your artifacts and hardlocks right away or after you do intensive stuff for a while? Do you see them in certain benchmarks or everywhere in games?
Is the card stable at stock - before overclocking?
Lastly, have you tried 12.7 and 12.9? Have you done a clean install of your driver, such as by running DriverSweeper on AMD and nVidia graphics drivers in safe mode before installing your current driver?


Thanks, rep +

1. Core temps at idle are around 33-40, load around 70 (oc 1150/1460) @1.150v and 70% fan, VRM 1 is around 80-90, VRM 2 - 60-70.

2. Its only when i start youtube video, but now after i disabled hw acceleartion i guess its fine, will report back.

3. I see the artifacts in game as well but pretty sure that was cause i forced my core to much around 1200

4. Yes, i'm using 12.7, 12.9 was flickering galore, due to using oc programs and unofficial oc modes (confirmed on G3D)

5, Yes clean install.

Artifacts could be due to an unstable overclock. Overclock stability seems to be a function of temperature with these cards, so if you can set your fans to 100% and check if you get lower temperatures and reduce / eliminate artifacts, that would be your answer. Could also be insufficient voltage for that overclock (not sure on that). Your temperatures look fine though. If you don't see any of those artifacts at stock without overclocking, could just be that 1150 is too high of an overclock for your card on air cooling.

Well guys I messed up BAD!!!!!!! I have a fan speed 3 position switch in my computer hooked up to my push pull h100 configuration and when the computer was off I reached in there and turned it to high position and hung it back up on its bracket i made in side the pc. Well basically the switch is metal and somehow i didnt hang it back up right (yes i know a metal anything inside pc is prob not smartest idea but with my previous card it wasnt an issue as it was a lot smaller than this one and was no threat to it) and i turned my pc back on and heard a POP sound and the pc shutdown. I felt like my world stopped for a few seconds I jsut knew it was bad. Well anyways, my 5 day old 7950 is shot. A little metal (chip?) black in color shorted out and literally popped off the graphics card. I am not sure what it is, there are many of them on the underside of the card (exposed part) so long story short I am out $300 sigh....

I didnt wanna get on here and tell this story cause i feel like such an ass but maybe there is someone as complacent as me on here reading this and it will encourage them to not do what i did. Dammit Man!

Blows, but I know those feels. In my very first build I just got in my brand new ASUS Radeon x1950Pro graphics card. In the case I had a case fan in the front that I had to get an extension cable for. I went cheap on it and I paid for it....so did my CPU. I had the computer on my desk with the side panel off. I decided to move the cable a bit, not unplug it, just kind tuck it somewhere else. I did this with the computer on not thinking anything bad would happen. Well as soon as I touched the extension cable, one of the metal ends came out of the connector and drug along the top side of the graphics card sparking along the way. Well, I killed a few things lol. So yeah, everyone has done something stupid in their lives and we pay for it.

Edit: HA just noticed your sig. Self fulfilling prophecy much lol

too many to count. To think I use to work on F16's Avionics systems. Damn glad I never killed anyone. Hah im just messin. But I did wind up with a few extra nuts n bolts after a couple jobs smile.gif thanks for sharing yours tory man it did make me feel better. Could have been worse I guess, I have over $1000 worth of stuff in my pc not counting the graphics card, that woulda been real real real bad
