post #271 of 38701
So I'm attempting to overclock (Sapphire), and have been using Trixx along with CCC. Basically, I increased Powertune in CCC to "+20" and then use Trixx to overclock with voltage adjustments. The issue I'm having is that when I go to look at my OC settings in CCC, they don't show the new settings that I created in Trixx. On top of that, the CCC window starts to flicker, and doesn't allow me to apply any adjustments, almost as if its fighting with the Trixx program. Looking at the HARDOCP review (http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/01/09/amd_radeon_hd_7970_overclocking_performance_review), you can see that he adjusted voltage/OCs in Trixx, but also used CCC to adjust Powertune, and the new OC settings actually appear in CCC. Am I missing something?

I thought MSI AB caused issues with Powertune in CCC? I thought I remembered reading that you can't use Powertune (or CCC Overdrive for that matter) when OC'ing with AB?

Just set powertune then close CCC and launch Trixx, works perfectly.


As far as the OCCT test, you were right Penguin.... I get a small # of errors at those settings and it gets worse the higher my temps go. In fact once I hit around 78c I start getting small handfuls of them even with low voltage at 1160c/1585m (1.206v) and 41% fan after 4-5 minutes. I tried cranking up the fan at the higher settings I had listed and it fixed errors but was too loud tongue.gif. So, I'm trying to find a good balance of thermals and few-to-no errors now without noise. I'm about to try down-volting further as it seems the lower I go the better off I am at avoiding temperatures with no real noticeable difference on error count until of course it hits that threshold.

I'm really impressed with this card. I turned everything up to ultra on BF3 and it runs superb on my 27 samsung. 3d looks great too. tongue.gif
That was on campaign as I can't do multiplayer yet.

Goldentiger, the man I want to talk to.

I am selling my 570s to get a 7970 because of vram limits causing stuttering, even at 1080p. Does the 7970 run smoother with no stutter vs the 570s albeit lower fps? At this point I don't care about high fps, which the 570s delivered but it wasn't able to max MSAA without stutter for $700. It would be in the 80fps then drop to 30fps after and stays there all jerking and lagging. Does the 7970 eliminate that?

What kind of fps are you getting?

I have the same monitor so hoping for +60fps with ultra -MSAA

Guys i cannot stress this enough... Afterburner and techpowerup Gpu tool or OCCT are the most accurate ways to test for absolute stability.
I was able to max the sliders in CCC and run benchmarks with no problems, but i did notice minor little artifacts. 
I then used GPU tool and it showed me where the cards where missing renders.
To my surprise, it gave me my 100% stable stock voltage overclock which was 1070/1575 mhz. 
This performed better than when i had the sliders maxxed in CCC due to the fact that it wasn't a stable overclock.
Just because you can max the sliders and finish bemchmarks, doesnt mean your overclock is completely stable. 
Good luckkkkk yooo

So got my card installed, and it works excellently. However, when I go in to crank up the clocks in Overdrive anything using the gpu crashes. Hopefully that doesn't mean I have a dud
