I am not going to push my core beyond 1200 @ 1.25v because it is owning everything at 1080P. But it appears that my ram can go higher, any benefit in running my ram above 1600, thanks in advance.

Probably not, 7970 isn't really memory bandwith limited especially with such a high overclock.

no, not much difference at all. i found very little difference between 1500 and 1725 on my vRAM in 3Dmark11 for example..

The only game that I know of that would benefit from anything higher than 1600 Mhz VRAM is Metro 2033.

I'm pretty bummed, turns out my new 7970 (MSI) is a dud. By itself it artifacts at stock when playing something that actually stresses it like BF3 64 player games at ultra settings. My sapphire 7970 handles the same thing overclocked to 1150/1575 easy. Tested different drivers, PCIE slots, overclocks, stock everything, crossfire mode, and single gpu mode.

Now to decide whether to return it and get another or spend the money on some other gadget rolleyes.gif.

one question. Core voltage set to 1.2v in Afterburner or Trixx (mod version) and Gpu-z shows arround 1.15v. Which one is closer to real ?

Gpu-z. But AB and Trixx are in fact correct, too. They tell you the nominal voltage, Gpu-z the actual voltage. Nominal voltage is what is usually talked about on these forums, for example when considering so-called safe voltages etc. But yeah, closer to real would be Gpu-z.
