Whelp, I flashed both cards to Asus test bios and was able to run some tests at 1150/1550. I gotta reboot and clock the CPU now but it's been so long that i've forgotten how on this tp67xe lol. Ok think I got it now, back to 5ghz. Let's try metro...

And don't hate the player because they offer 30 day returns if aren't happy or have an issue. Besides it will be listed as an open box item making the buyer happy with a discounted card that I have to pay shipping and restocking on a percentage of the card.
"that's why you will never have nice things with that logic"
Touché

With my logic, I actually have more nice things.
I like my card that won't make 1200 MHz, 1125 Mhz is just as nice a thing.
Not in your book though. You need to keep up with the Jones' and their e-peens.

Perhaps i'm unlucky and have the same bios in both positions?? Or perhaps the switch is not working correctly?

Denim, any more thoughts on why I cant get the card to flash?

Update to this. I just dropped it down to 1100/1550 on stock volts. When I get the chance I will move it back up and see how far I can run on stock volts. Oh both cards are 74% asic, 1.175v stock. Anyways, I ran metro at 5ghz and 1100/1550.

Old bench via Metro thread rules:

Second Place:
tsm106 ---- i7 2600k @ 5.3GHz ---- Quad-CFX HD 6950 (970/1480) ---- 115.40 FPS


Current 7970 settings

tsm106 ---- i7 2600k @ 5.0GHz ---- CFX HD 7970 (1150/1550) ---- 117.90 FPS

LOL It's killing my old Quads! Going to try some Heaven.

Same thing in Heaven.

Old Quad run which placed me in the top of the 69xx quad setups:
tsm106 ---- i7 2600k 5.3ghz
HD 6950 Quadfire, 955/1460
121.5
3060

Current 7970 settings

Not in your book though. You need to keep up with the Jones' and their e-peens.

How do you have more nice things? Returning a card that is not performing like the 90% of other ones and getting it replaced so it does perform like the 90%? And you want to talk about logic? And state you own nicer things, when you have no idea what one owns, nor can you even JUDGE NICE on the interwebz.

Maybe you ought to read my book more. It has Logic written in it and even has a dedicated chapter to it. I can have Jone's and the Peens sign it for you if you want.

Since you know, getting a card that performs like most of the other products is such a baaaaad logical choice rolleyes.gif


EDIT: Oh, and I would be happy with my card if it was capable of doing 1125/11575. But currently, it is not -- In fact, it's barely stable at stock even with a full reformat... something's up.

But thanks for your assuming time -- Move along

Is their any update on when we are going to get a REAL driver for our 79XX? I am still running the RC version of them... and they are terrible.

Probably the "I can't get stable at 1100, so I'm gonna try 1200 and shoot 1.3V into it" part of your OC voyage.
Anyway, good luck with your OC and RMA endeavours thumb.gif

Too bad it was 1.25 and which I had to put for my first card to get the same results. I guess you're new to overclocking and still assuming on how I'm testing this somewhat faulty of a card?

Thanks, I wish you the best of luck here on OCN and the assumptions you'll spout out of your arse thumb.gif
