Thanks!

AFAIK 21197-00 is the reference.

Just checked the EK block compatibility site and it should be good for watercooling. Pictures also indicate that there is the AMD logo on top of the PCI-E fingers, so that's another indicator of a reference PCB.

That not true.
That is being caused by certian driver sets (most likel;y beta) or an unclean install.
I have been through this 50 times with people. there is no reason that your clocks have to stay in 3d mode because you have more than one screen.
I have a 3+1 extended setup and notice the clocks on the other three 7970's as well as the voltage

4-way means its not triggering enough load on a single card to trigger the 3D clocks...?

usually if you had a multi-monitor setup and the idle load went high enough, it will flip into 3D mode, not particularly sure how boost cards or certain OCs behave to this though...

It does the same thing no matter if I am running 2,3,4 cards. 2D mode is 2D mode. the cards don't start load leveling until you get into 3D mode.

I have seen this problem corrected by using an uninstaller cleaner, simply reinstalling, or using a non beta WHQL driver set.

***** If you have Aero on, turn it off. It can screw with 2D/3D clocks as well*****

Now I'm slightly worried haha. As this is my first build I rely on people's input. A few months back I got told it was safe. So I went with it :/. So any advice would be really helpful.

Don't get me wrong, your clocks idling @ 500 rather than 300/150 is not going to hurt anything other than a bit extra heat and a cents on you elec bill.

When the driver set goes WHQL, you will likely see the 2D/3DF clock issue listed in the bug fixes
