I really need to get back to work, so I just quicky tested it and it looks I can hit 1135Mhz on stock volts.

Metro maxed out (4xAA DoF ON) bench, 6 runs, max temp 75C with manual fan @ 50%. Average FPS - 34.8. My 580 Lighting @ 930 was getting 31.7
First impression - I like it. Gotta do some extensive benchmarking vs 580 in everything else.

I'm still hitting the refresh button like a mofo for the ASUS ones! Thanks for showing pics of unboxing! I can't wait to play around with the new GPUTweak thumb.gif

All of the 7970s sold on newegg have a black PCB.

I had not tried the "disable ulps" box yet so I will give that a try.
So is it for certain that I do not need to flash the ASUS bios to increase the voltage? Thanks for your help!
p.s. Having read the entire thread I now know that Furmark is not the way to go so I'll be changing my approach from now on - thanks all! Great info here.....

GPU-Z shows my voltage at 1.17 as well, even though its actually 1.237. I haven't had many issues when gaming so far, so it looks like maybe GPU-Z needs a software update to properly read 7970s. Anyone else have insight on this?

I posted this issue yesterday.
The cards seem to have a noticeable vdrop.

Aha! So here's a dumb question - how you know it is 1.237? Does OCCT report that? Still learning here......

I've been reading those comments too. Thing is - mine stays locked at 1.17v with no variation whatsoever, at least as reported by GPU-z....

I assume my voltage is whatever I set it, since my clocks at 1.237v (1220/1575) would probably blow up my game if the voltage was actually at 1.17.

Furmark is like taking your brand new sports car and sitting there revving the engine to red-line. It is completely pointless. Stick to playing games to test OC stability as that as a realistic load.
