I'm currently running 1075/1375 on stock, the stock VDDC is 1.050 and now it is 1.035 when overclocking so a bit lol there.

You invite problems by mixing CCC with a 3rd party app. Haven't yall been following along with all my rants on AB, Trixx and gputweak? biggrin.gif

Nope, y'all haven't apparently - and I've tried all 3 programs: Trixx, the Asus utility, and Afterburner. They all work perfectly fine with CCC, and I find if you don't use CCC and enable the +20% powertune your performance suffers on any decent overclock. Try it...

tsm106 what do you recommend to test stability ?

you can just use MSI AB to enable the 20% too though

Its possible to give more Voltage as 1,3V for 7970 without hard vmod ??
post #3436 of 38701
So confused by your instructions tsm106. confused.gif

I downloaded that utility, and it doesn't work. Says ULPS isn't there. I can't get a very good overclock at all out of mine. I got 1225 stable with 1.22v once, but it took 100% fan speed. Any temp over 67*C and it would hard lock.

Even at a mere 1000Mhz it locks up randomly. I just gave up and put the stupid thing back to stock, yet to have a problem with it at stock.

What do you guys consider "stable" ? I ask this because i can get 1200 stable on furmark, games, 3dmark, etc but when i use occt error check i get errors past 1175mhz... so i dont know if i have a bad chip or people with 7970 are just playing and not really testing stability...

Let me just say that for stability testing Furmark is useless. I had my core clock on my 7950 at 1025, it ran for 10 minutes with no problems. Closed it, ran the Metro 2033 benchmark tool, locked up in 2 seconds. It didn't pass at 1000 either. So Metro benchmark tool>>>>Furmark for stability testing. I wish I would've known that before I ran my card at 77c under full load on an unstable clock

Yes i know that. That why i asked because the "ultimate" stability test is error check from occt (at least the most reliable for me) but i dont know what most of people (or more experienced people) are using so i wanted to know

I seem to have the opposite effect... I have no issues with Trixx. When I used AB I could not get as high of a clock stable. bigeyedsmiley.png
