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

whats the difference between stock cooler and these?

You probably already know the 7950 ref designs have the fan placed in the middle of the card. The only difference I see in the Sapphire OC version is it uses two fans.

When I "reset" in AB it show my voltage at 1.112 which is also signifanctly higher than yours.

Also verify that it's showing the same in GPU-Z

I do not own this card, but from what I have read it the OC version runs at 31c idle and 64c load with the fan speed profile on high, I think I remember it's 31 and 69 with the low profile selected, which is not bad considering the card is OC.

I have not seen temps for the non-OC version set at the same clocks, so I can't comment further. Google will probably find the numbers. smile.gif

Actually there is a HDMI to DP.

Click on the pictures to enlarge them. I think that it is the last picture but if you look at what is in the box there are three adapters. HDM to DP, DVI to DP, and DVI to HDMI.

And like mentioned before HDMI if you are using built in monitor speakers and DVI if not. Really they both will work just as well.

@Lard

Nice find!

If I read it correctly, it seems the Sapphire was not bad. 75c for the gpu, which was beaten only by the OC version. The VDDC VRM got hot at 96c, but that is not uncommon. Look at the XFX 7970 Double Dissipation! 85.6 and 101.6! Those are high.

The Sapphire 7950 OC version seems the winner here with 71.5c on the gpu and 75c VDDC at load.

Try reinstalling CCC but remove Afterburner before that and install it after CCC install.

I did ATIman reinstall, and then installed the driver and then MSI afterburner. it was just after I reinstalled both that I noticed this.

While using Afterburner, it will take over the control in Overdrive such as fan speed and Power Tune. There's nothing wrong in your settings. Uninstall Afterburner and whatever you set in Overdrive will stick after you hit "Apply" smile.gif
