I just put together a strong rig to begin with and get my cpu to where it needs to be to run this setup. All to push three and now five monitors. Its also a challenge and hence could be why I'm constantly changing gear. I've been a lot happier putting my efforts on a MMG rig and trying to game (tongue.gif). This is my first time pushing more pixels then three 1200 monitors so I'm really riding my Tahitis on some games.



Didn't get some gaming done this weekend since both babies fell ill and had doctors visits. I got a chance to gauge my new cpu and was happy it could hit 5.0, though, i"m settling on ~4.9 which uses less volts and runs a good 10c cooler. Its plenty enough to avoid any issues w/ quad gpu's.

Thank you smile.gif Yeah, no fun when they feel ill. It would be somewhat guilty to enjoy yourself while they're not well. As a parent they come first, the rig is some where down the line tongue.gif



At least I found out I didn't not have a faulty monitor or another faulty m-dp on the BE card. Looks like I have a bad dp cable. Simple fix on ebay smile.gif

Sorry about the kiddos being sick Mad, I have a 16 month old son, and I know its hard when the little ones are sick. I hope they get better soon, and I hope you don't catch it!!

PS- +1 for the help on the blocks last week.

Thanks and np thumb.gif

You found any backplates (if you need them)?

Lol, haven't had time to look. Need 2 of them. And I'm only 1 rep away from being able to put a wanted thread in the market. Doh.

A question for the guys they have gone aftermarket cooling.
Is it normal for 7970 newer versions not to need the copper shim?

Had the cooler off my 2 PC 7970s and both the die sticks out 0.4mm past the core protector shim.
The protector shim is basically the same height as the resistors.

fans occasionally can make a sound similar to coil whine, but this is rarely the case and only really found on cheap PWM fans.

a straight out explanation of what coil whine is; in the power delivery for your card (and the rest of your hardware really), there is an array of chokes in parallel which provide a resistance and drop the 12V coming in to whatever voltage needed, this case 1-1.25V, now these chokes are basically a little bit of thick copper wire rapped in a coil and are placed in plastic or ceramic cases with a bit of special glue, usually the glue will stop the coil moving but occasionally you can get bubbles witch allow the coil to vibrate and even collide with itself, making it able to create a "whine" noise under load.

generally computational silicon and conversion from AC from the wall to DC both have variations in the current draw, generally not detectable by anything bar an oscilloscope, a common benchmark for PSUs is to monitor them with one, the flatter the resulting lines the better, and these existent oscillations is what exposes loose coils and creates the whine.

some general fixes have been to try burning in the card for a while to make the glue melt and re-settle, most people have done this with great results, but it could also be your PSU either poorly regulating your power and causing the card to whine, or it could be the chokes in the PSU itself whining, you try to test with different PSUs to at least see if it sounds different, I think in some cases you can end up with a card that whines all the time despite the actual core states due to it actually being one of the memory chokes at fault, which isn't exactly an easy fix...

Help needed.

Hey guy's i need some help with my HD 7970.
So.. it is a FX-797A-TDFC (it can be the TDBC also) with bios 015.022.000.004.000000 version.
it has a mechanical damage - some SMD are missing, it was an accident.
but anyhow i'm searching for someone with the same card that could help me out identify those parts.
Thx

I would have a look here for your card if it says you need a shim you need it. Not sure what card you have so this should help you.
