I was wondering, how much psu power would be needed to OC a 7970? Im getting the sapphire hd 7970 vapor x and i want to overclock the most i can. Would CoolerMaster GX-Lite ATX V2.3 700W 86%-Efficiency be good enough to give the power it needs?

Yes, even good 620W would to the job. I'm running OCd CPU and card on 520W

I'm using 3930k @ 4.5Ghz with Matrix HD 7970 1200MHz.

Before this I'm using AX650. And just for the fun of it, and having a problem ( can't stop till I feel like i want to stop ). I changed my PSU to AX1200i < Just for the (i) part. Want to know how much my system pulls from the wall.

And there it is, only 616 Watts @ inhumane load.

Yeah, I run a 700W OCZ (specs below).

I think UPS reports max load at 450w~ in gaming 500w~ in benchmarks and a lil bit more in Burn-Ins. Last check I had an Idle below 120w

(The above wattages are without my 4Ghz Overclock applied) and some of the power features enabled.

compared to 190-200w idle of my brother's older phenomIIx2

Has anyone bought or laid eyes on a reference MSI 7970 lately? Are they using the same black pcb as they were when the 7970s were first released? The only reference cards available here are MSI and HIS, and googling has informed me that HIS have gone all cheapo, but I can't find anything on the MSI cards. TIA

Msi has one true reference card and one reference based card built on the alternate pcb. This alternate pcb card it's the oc version and it uses a boxy looking ref style cooler.

I have the reference MSI. I haven't pushed mine yet so I can't say much for overclocking. I haven't had any problems with it yet. Looking to find 2 more in the future.
