Yes it is, get it to 4.5 at least.

Thanks for the quick response!

I'll get my 2500k to at least 4.5 then. See if I can push it towards 5.0ghz, though I have a pretty hungry chip, I know from the past. Not exactly the right spot to ask so I apologize in advance but 1.40-1.45v should be safe voltage for a 2500k cooled by a H100 (2x GT's) I think?

It's a little odd though, BF3 gives me pretty nice fps. Where Crysis ( a less CPU demanding game, I think) does not run as good. That was actually the reason I starting thinking of a CPU bottleneck.

Hi guys, just got my Sapphire vapor X 6gb 7970 with another one on the way, I've spent more money on my PC in the last 2 weeks then i ever have on all my PC's, kinda alarming so to speak

firstly my little ****ty case was not good enough so i just got a NZXT Switch 810 (white) fell in love with it, watch this...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=s9R_o3a45os

2 x sapphire 6gb 7970 (dry your eyes on price!!)

1000watt modular PSU
Didn't upgrade my board from p8z68 pro, as its a pretty good board

i already have an i7 2700k at 4.9ghz
corsair h100
kept my 16gb of corsair Vengeance 1600mhz
Ordered my Revo drive x3 500gb worried whether or not this will work?? what with 2 massive cards, but ****it got it anyway...

hopefully this will tide me over for some years...it better do after spending that much...

may upgrade to a saber tooth x79 in the future, but i like my z68

anybody found a good Waterblock for the 7970? mine has got those vaporchill heatsink on the cards, is that even removable?

I've played with the overclocking, although on my 600watt PSU its limited but i got to 1270mhz seems stable although i get the 2nd orange light on the card at about 60ish, hella fast cards man...hella fast

I'm running a dell u3011 + 2 x 2007 fp's at 5339 x 1600

Crysis should be driver issue, you also use auto fans? and do you have power to + 20 in AB?

I use a 1:1 scheme. 70% fanspeed at 70 degrees for example.
I haven't touched the power slider in AB yet, that would push my cards more?

Are they overclocked? and yes even on stock it will stabilize the fps.

Hey guys, I am the one who just fried my brand new xfx 7950 (non overclock) and im in the market for a new one obviously. I really thought the performance on the 7950 was great compared to my hd6850 and I only paid $270 for the card after a $30 rebate. I was just wondering, exactly how much better is a 7970? The prices range from $400-$500 and I am kinda itching to get one of those instead. Or maybe I could get 2x7950 for $600? I am only on 1080p but I jsut wanna put a card in there and turn the settings up as high as they go and not have to worry about a damn thing. Im sure some of you can relate. $600 is the absolute most I have to spend so 2x7970 is not an option. Oh and dont worry I will be more careful with my new card/cards.

I'll sell you a 7970 if you want, a lot cheaper than retail. I have a spare one that does 1295/1750. At 1080 you only need 1 7970 unless you want like 120fps.
