All I wanted was to finally break the 10k overal score, graphics was 11646). As I said nothing special just cranked the voltage, 1340Mhz on core and for the memory just for some extra stability 2Ghz with 1.66v (those hynix are rated at 1.65v and run happily gamming stable at 1800Mhz with 1.6v). What really surprised me since I had no time to tweak it was the fact that it had runned with not a single artifact at 1330Mhz but it didn't manage to break 10k (was like 9992), so I've just pushed 1340 and run it again, this time there were some artifacts and mild corruption at instances but it have run with no problems, could have pushed further a little bit probably, but did not had the time and patience to do so. That's on water.

P.S. I edited out some folders that were showing some work stuff at my desktop.

That's a sick score. I was hoping to reach 9K on my 7950 but hitting a ceiling where I need more voltage.

Thanks, much appreciated. Definitely would like to try the BIOS one way or another

I am thinking of replacing my 7950 with a 480. My 7950 plays fine at 1080 and even 1440 VSR in some games. The fans, though, on the Twin Frozer get a bit loud in heavy scenes.

It's definitely tempting. I'm also tempted to pickup a 2nd 7950 for cheap and try crossfire.

The new RX 460 will be coming out soon for under $100. It could be faster than the 7950. I'd say sell your 7950 for like $75 and wait for the 480, which would be equal to crossfire 7950s. Sell it while you can. A single 480 will sip power less than a 7950.

The 470 will be like $150 and will be rivaling the Hawiis.

Hey buddy. How are you ? Say, you planning to sell your MSI R7950 ? Do your fans work great or have they gone wonky as mine are stiff as stupid and won's spin. I don't wanna sell the card right now as it can do 1350 and is enough for me at 1080p for most games. But I need to use the card again. Would you sell me your cooler if you sell it to someone who does not need it ?

I'm not sure if that's my card or not (only way to really tell is to look at the sticker on the back of the physical card), but that doesn't look like a BIOS I've tried so if you're willing to upload it I'd try it out. I see though that your clocks are running above stock. Do you have it OC'd in software or is that a result of the BIOS?

Anyway, if you could use GPU-Z to upload the BIOS, (if you could do both with the bios switch light on and off that'd be awesome), either here or some other filesharing site, it would be much appreciated.

Sorry for the late reply. Here's my BIOS. Good luck!
