post #2861 of 38704
does anyone play world of warcraft with 7970?
I don't have any problem with others games except world of warcraft. It keep crashing randomly. It freezes my system.
I test my stability using OCCT 3.1.0 and ran 30 mins without errors. My cpu OC stability is tested an hour with LINX. Anyone else having problem with world of warcraft?

Also, 7970 is not performing well compared to my old gtx 580, 6970. 7970 supposed to have higher FPS. I also saw review from techpower and 7970 wasn't doing well in world of warcraft.

probably a driver issue. The latest support release did mention a crash issue with Just Cause 2 on launch but i played it just fine yesterday....

world of warcraft is one of my favorite game and my old gtx 480 was doing better lol. I am sure it's driver problem, but not sure when they're going to fix it.

There is a huge differences in PSU's even when it's from the same manufacturer. It mostly comes down to what series they have, but even in the same series, there can be quite significant differences.
Visit the PSU thread section on this site, they know a lot! Check the stickied database thread there. They have even made a tool which can help you get your estimated your PSU needs, it evens recommends those that are great if you need a new one. I'm not a expert on PSU's, but I have learned a lot from the visits I have had there. One thing, review sites can inhabit fools that think they have a handle on how to review a PSU properly.

There has even been a case that a site gave a award to a PSU, when a proper review site did a review, it actually burned up.

There is to much misinformation floating around about which PSU's are great.

I just wanted to throw it out there, since this thread is pretty active. I think it could prove to be a good advice to many here.

I'm not making this statement because of your post btw, I just saw this as a opportunity to mention this smile.gif

We are the grouphug.gif 7950/7970 club right? smile.gif

7970 should eat wow alive. What's it doing? Hitching, freezing, constant low fps, or crashing?

It freezes randomly during the game.

well it is very smooth of course, but doesn't perform better than gtx 580, 6970, gtx 480.

Here is review from techpower

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_7970/23.html

sometimes gtx 580 and 6970 are doing better than 7970, but this is obviously driver issue.

Oh, and I have this system which has the 7970 up again.

I'm the one which had that sketchy remount of the waterblock.

My card is running 30c idle smile.gif
My card is still doing this weird downclock of the card, bringing down Core clock, but still running 1500 on memory, instead of 150. This would have caused between 50-60 idle temperature on air (even with a own fan profile).

I'm off to play some BF3 to get the water temperature up, then do some overclocking.

Welp guys, finally got it stable at 1200/1600 *I think*. I'll test it a little more, but here are the results.

That's perfectly normal as it should be with multi-monitor setup.

 

To test; remove all monitors but one, it will downclocks hence lower idle temperature.
