[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 407

post #4061 of 38721
Hey guys, is it possible/safe to overclock the 7970 over the limits of CCC without using a third party program like Trixx or AB?
Method in thought is to edit the values in a custom profile in the ATI folder, as shown in the following link.

A proper new driver.

Just remember that if you use it, you have also to use ATIMANs patch afterwards if you want TRIXX or MSI AB to be fully functional (-xcl command etc)
By the way,... at least from the link you can see its an official driver, so if its not meant to be for your card it simply would not install...
Driver: http://www2.ati.com/drivers/hotfix/radeon_7700_series/amd_catalyst_8.95_rc_vista_7_32-64.exe
Patch: http://www.mediafire.com/?p5y24gfh4s5bmrz
12.1 CAP 3: http://www2.ati.com/drivers/hotfix/catalyst_application_profiles/amd_catalyst_12.1_cap3.exe
Oh and a picture thumb.gif

Fine, tested now:

700

No different...

Just spent 1,5 hours with that other driver, and then a new one gets out... For crying out loud!

Will test that one aswell, now...

Edit: when starting that installation, it says that all the driver versions are already installed and updated, meaning it is the same as the one ElGreco linked earlier?
or may there be differences, but the drivers are named the same?

Special game-specific profile's for Crossfire only. Single card setups do not need or use them.

I just reinstalled the drivers again with the 12.2 cert drivers. installed 12.1 Cap 3 over them. Same results as the 12.3 preview +12.1 cap3 driver that I showed results above. MSI Afterburner says that the 12.2 pre cert is 12.3 driver too for some reason.

Anyway, no performance increase in that driver, maybe a Stability fix that I have not seem to encountered yet.
post #4070 of 38721
They also read out as 12.3 for me in Trixx. Installed them over the official 11.12 7970 drivers and jumped right into a BF3 B2K map without restarting. Performance seems the same overall.
