You mean HDMI to DVI cable ?
Is this to connect the card to your screen? And is this better than a standard DVI to DVI cable connection to your screen?

Unfortunately that wasn't stable for some reason because whenever I try to join a game in BF3 it immediatly hangs and tells me that the display driver has stopped working.
So I tried to install the earlier RC11 driver and do the same overclock. It seemed to be working untill artifacts started to show up and my computer completely resets itself.
Also tried upping the voltage to 1.2v but that gave me the same results.
I've tried using CCC, Trixx and Afterburner but they all gave me the same results.
Do I have a bad card? Or just a bad driver?

Its absolutely no guarantee that u can overclock outofthebox to 1125/1575 straight away. Try and up that OC little by little. I know it's tempting to do so, cause there are many examples here that people reach the CCC max. My mem won't go over 1450 for example, yet my core goes around 1140 with 1.2volt. So try upping the core first to see where u can get. Some have very good cards, others have lesser. Consensus around multiple forums is that if you reach 1100 core on a 7970 on stockcooling, that's nice.

HDMI and DVI are both digital signals, so quality should be the same. HDMI carries both audio and video, DVI only video. If you are using speakers in the monitor, then the HDMI connection will be easier. However, if you are using external speakers, which most do, then it's up to you to decide which connection. I guess whichever cable you have on hand. If you can avoid adapters, then why not... smile.gif

Strange that you can't get 1500 on the memory. That's the stock rating of the chips that were installed on the cards. AMD has underclocked the chips to 5.5ghz when they are factory rated @ 6ghz. Anyone should be able to get 1500 or 6ghz on their memory

For those that can't get the overclock up high. You need to see what your doing. You can't just max the sliders without controlling the voltage correctly. You will not be able to get 1125core without taking the steps. Maybe a very few will be able to do that, but for those who can't, try this. Use Afterburner 2.2 beta 12(14 is out now too), as soon as you open it, unlock voltage in the settings and then restart AB and hit the reset button and see your voltage. You DO NOT want to go above .125v over stock or you will become unstable. My card runs 1.049v stock. I can push 1000core with stock volts. I CAN NOT get 1125 tho. Now with applying .125v above stock, 1.174v, I can reach 1250core stable, have not gotten 1300 yet on my card. At that same clock of 1250/1600 1.174v, if I try 1.225v, it fails and crashes. Exceeding that voltage has not done good for me or a few others.

Try that and see what happens.

The saphhire 7950's are deactivated on newegg:((( wtAHHH
post #4569 of 38701
I find it strange too, but perhaps BF3 is the only one complaining there. I get major performance loss if I up the mem in that game. Without even having MSAA on, so I decided to let it alone because increasing mem doesn't even match up to the performance gain you get for getting the core higher. When I "reset" in AB it show my voltage at 1.112 which is also signifanctly higher than yours.

Likely only means they are out of stock and have no ETA on new inventory. If they have more coming, they just move to out of stock. If they have no view of any incoming inventory they deactivate.

This is my understanding.

Amazon has both the non-oc and oc versions. Non-oc version ready to ship, OC version requires 2 days.
