I got 9325 with a 7950 at 1250/1750, so I would say yes.

Hi guys.

I camed here because I am looking for you're opinions about this. Ok I bought sapphire HD 7970 and I think its a great card It rased my performance in games notably. But I heard this card is great for overcloaking so I thought I might give it a try. First I wanted to use sapphire trixx but then I decided I'm not gonna do any of that real tweaking so I just used CCC. Well anyway I got to a point where I raised Core and Memory settings to its fullest everything was stable max temperatures I got where 86 which is got considering I got 84 without any overcloaking and I tested with FurMark. Now here comes the funny part well I'll keep this short and just show you or rather tell you the results.

Non overcloaked Benchmarks:

-Crysis: Everything MAX, 8x AA was 22-25 ( GPU benchmark )
-Crysis 2: Everything Max DX11 and High resolution textures plus I manually turned AA on trough autoconfig.cfg 20-35 ( In game )

Now don't get me wrong games where running fine but those dips were noticable at times. Now here comes the so called funny part.

-Overcloaked 1125 / 1575

-Crysis: Same as before ( 75-85 )
-Crysis 2: -same as before ( constant 60 )

And every other game I tried runs like a charm and I'm honestly shocked I mean this is a real performance increase over the stock. Is this because drivers aren't really there yet or what ( every opinion is welcome ). And with trixx I could but I won't raise those clocks higher. biggrin.gif

Oh and can anyone with a sapphire 7970 write his temp when Idle and when on load. Thanks.

Cheers

I have my 7970 on water, and to get 1200/1750, I'm currently running 1.237v/1625v/+20% in AB. Max temperature I have ever seen is 42c I think.
Otherwise Battlefield 3 starts to artifact after about 30 minutes.

Aren't that voltage quite high compared to other watercooled 7970's?

Does watercooling allow for your voltages to go lower? Or in WC'ing just for temps?

better overclocks you can go higher with lower voltage.

btw i have watercooling had blocks on both of my 6990s but im not going to wast my money on blocks for the 7970 cause im swaping to nvidias highend when it comes out hate amds drivers.

I feel like I need to get a block for my 7950. I have to be close near 1.281v/1.681v for my 1250/1750 clock. I would really like to go lower in voltage.

I personally would not do 1.281V on air 1.2v to me is as high as i will go.
