1.First manully flashed to Asus bios.
2.Asus voltage tweak set to extend overclock enhancement, but not run it when overclocking
3. Afterburner set to 1.25V and 1250Mhz, 1700Mhz for meory and at 1.7v
4 unselect CCC overdrive, but set the values in it same as afterbuner
5.only use AB to overclock.
So this is all I did, I know you can go even 1300Mhz but to me 1200Mhz is the wall, but our cards are all Sapphire brand, did I miss something or just my card is werid?@@ Sorry I am new to overclocking, I really need your help, I see your post result that is amazing! please help me out with this>< really appreciated man!smile.gif

Might be in same situation with me on my HIS -- Having issues getting it stable with the right voltages, it's just funky. Might not reach the 50 extra mhz, nor is 2-4fps worth it

Imagine if LG released a new tv that didn't work with Comcast, or if the next iPhone didn't support any 3G or faster connections.

Ditto on that sentiment. I mentioned how AMD always seems to give their customer base the shaft in terms of driver support in another thread, and I was flamed for it. I just spent $1,200 on two cards, the 7970 has been out for over almost a month now. I expect proper drivers for my cards, still haven't received that. Come on AMD, get your **** together. This is this is unacceptable for their flagship cards.

I've been getting this buzzing sound from my MSI 7970 OC edition. I got the same thing from my XFX 7970 BE. It isn't the fan. It sounds like some sort of electrical buzz. It only happens when it is under load (game, bench, exc.) Anybody have any ideas?

Capacitor squeel. Not a big deal. They all do it to some extent. If it's really bad you could consider RMAing the card.

The real test comes when another AAA title comes out and whether or not Amd is ready for the game with proper drivers this time.

This!

What games are you having a problem with? Most of all the current big hit games like BF3 are scaling and running awesome right now especially in crossfire. If your having problems with a particular game who knows if the new driver will fix it especially if its an older game. All I care about is BF3 and the new serious sam and it runs them great.

I'm having the following issues (and counting)...with just ONE card.....

Killing Floor - Doesn't open (main screen black, secondary flashes)
GTA IV / EFLC - Stuttering
GRID - Resolution doesn't exist past 1280x1024
Bioshock - Doesn't open (crashes)
Duke Nukem Forever - same as Killing Floor
Crysis - same as Bioshock
