Ah well, I guess we can all look forward to better HD7900 drivers now since they're not fully optimized and all for the new architecture smile.gif

I only hit 1300 on the core water-cooled, which is just about as high as you can go no matter what (not counting LN2). 1175 is retarded-awesome on air.

Gigabyte 7970 Windforce VRM cooling

I saw I think in this thread somewhere a little discussion about VRM temps on the 7970's
I'm pretty sure it went along the lines of OC'd card with XFX custom cooler and VRM temps were hitting over 100'c, yet stock was about 90'c.

Well just had a play with my Windforce oc'd to 1260/6200 @ 1250mV

Ran the Unigine bench for about 2 hrs looping with all settings maxed. VRM max temps were 69'c

The reference designs only go up to about 91c.
Just remember.... with these cards, the lower the temps, the higher the overclock...
For example.. you could have a stable OC at 75c but at 80c you will crash.
28nm for ya tongue.gif
These cards are monsters, but sadly... their drivers are fairys mad.gif

So far I'm not really a huge fan of GPU Tweak. It may just be that I'm more familiar with Afterburner, but unless I have to crank the voltage up past 1300 mV I jus can't see myself using this as my primary OC'ing tool.

Ordered my Reference PowerColor 7970, of course they shipped it from Cali and I'm in NJ so can't play with it 'til Thursday, Wednesday if I get uber lucky.

Is it safe to say that BF3 causing a hard freeze and a 'driver stopped responding' log being in event viewer indicates an unstable OC? What I mean is, as opposed to something else. Does punkbuster have the same types of quirks with AB that it does with programs like Rivatuner (which afaik AB is based off of). Is there any point to shutting AB off while playing? I understand the clock/volt changes stay the same this way, but I'm just trying to figure out what the deal is. What's a good way to 'test' my card other than OCCT and furmark? I'm normally a guy who gets it game stable and I'm happy. This OC played many hours of BF3, then last night bam, crash city.

After flashing to the ASUS BIOS I can't seem to get my card to fully underclock. Even setting a default profile for 2D applications only returns the card to 925/1375 when sitting at the desktop.

try undoing it and redoing it. i believe i had a similar issue and fixed it by resetting ab completely and then inputting the OC again......

Just got my Sapphire 7970 a couple days ago.

So, somewhat impressed out of the box after upgrading from a W/C'ed 6970 other than the following issue.

There is an annoying high pitched sound when the card is idling. I have sensitive ears so I can hear it well. It is probably coil whine coming from the card when it is idling at 300/150MHz.
I can constantly hear the sound changing frequency, as if it was doing work, but it really isn't
Whenever the GPU becomes utilized (over 300MHz) from web pages with flash, gif's, whatever,..youtube, watching videos, the whine disappears, which is strange but annoying.
I've tried playing some games and the coil whine is there, but that is to be expected, I hear it but it is not annoying due to the fan.
I've read a few topics regarding the issue, and it seems to be common for high end cards, but I never read anything about this during idle.

Is anyone experiencing this?
The card is only a few days old, and I have my EK water block ready, but I don't want to proceed if this is some sort of defect on my card.
I don't recall my other cards ever making this noise at idle, so I am contemplating on whether I should RMA it or not.

FYI - I am using the GPU Observer gadget to take clock readings.
