But with the stock cooler it will be @ 60c @ what should be 36c for me idle. and when you play games it will be your normal load temp.
I went back to my old bios 4 now and all is good again I like to be able to idle on air until i get my water blocks. The one good thing about that bios though I could go 30mhz higher @ the same voltage for some reason. Dont know why. I waiting for something like RBE to come out so I can just mod my stock Bios.

Thanks for the heads up dude - I'll definitely keep that in mind. I may give it a try and if idling doesn't work right then I'll revert to the original.

Ok, I'm totally new to this and I think that I registered correctly with a proof from GPU-Z for right now. So if the owner of this club, Evil Penguin sees this post could you sign me up please? biggrin.gif Just got my Powercolor Radeon HD 7970 today. Its reference and I'm not gonna try to overlock it until at least tomorrow so I can get some run time in before I up the core clock n memory. I believe that I will want to up it to the known absolute stable levels as I have read every page of this club's thread I think, so I hope that I did everything correctly to register and its great to be owning a new Radeon. I am stoked. biggrin.gif Oh yeah and if needing further proof I'll post an image of my GPU-Z proof! smile.gif
500

This is great. lol

My DCUII 7970 should be here in a few hours biggrin.gif And then, work sad-smiley-002.gif

I can play with it tomorrow though!

I'm seeing all these fantastic overclocks, so I have to ask how you go about OCing? I'm very iffy about GPU OCing because so far I've damaged a GTS450 and potentially damaged a 580 (I'm not sure whether it was faulty on arrival and I compounded it, or whether I caused the issue - either way it got an RMA). All I've done to OC them is use MSI Afterburner, nudge up the clocks and stress using GPUTool. I put extra voltage through the 450, but only a very small amount, and never overvolted the 580.

Yeah I liked the bios other then that. Like i said it would not be so bad if I had my water blocks here now tongue.gif I really dont care if they idle or not other then the heat it puts out . Some people say it will have a shorter life span but I would not care, I will just get a 8970 or w/e is the best card next gen anyways .

To tell you the truth I really dont know why everyone tries to push gpus so hard with ocing. I say dont oc much just buy more cards you will get petter performance . I just like to do a mild oc with no more voltage added @ all if I can get by with it. To me I hate more then anything is when playing a game and my driver crashes its really not worth my time to try and get a stable clock. I choose stability over performance anyday. Once again to any and everybody this is just my opinion

I don't want to push it too hard, but considering just how high people are going it is worthwhile for me to even go half that high, especially since I bought a DCUII and will be starting at 1000 core
