Don't really need too, stock volts run fine for 1575 mate.

Could that be the cause of overheating the card? Temps are fine on idle, but I can't even check the load.

Just take the cooler off and reseat it with some new TIM. It is obviously seated poorly.

Do you have more info on this? thinking.gif

Blimey! Think I'll check my second card when I get in - hopefully this will explain why one is running nearly 20c hotter than the other!

hey all, i've only run into this problem a few times this past month, but it's getting more irritating.

i have a sapphire radeon 7970 on win7 64bit running the AMD Catalyst 12.2 Pre-Certified Driver(latest driver version to my knowledge). hibernation and standby modes have been disabled.
i dont know if my video card is bad or if i did something wrong.
i set my screensaver(stock win7 mystify) to start after 5 minutes. and after 15 minutes, my screen should power off. i see the screensaver launch and i can see the amber light on my lcd once its powered off via windows.

when i come back, i see all this garbled junk on the screen. like its not waking back up properly or turning the video card back on properly. the pictures i've taken are after i pressed ctrl+alt+del, if i dont press it the whole screen is filled with that dark dotted pattern. as a workaround, i disabled the screen power off and only enabled the screensaver. and this way i'll physically power off my lcd.
im ok with doing that, but yesterday when i got home from work, my pc was completely locked up. i wasn't running anything in the background. the screen was just completely black.

i did some searching and it appears i'm not the only one suffering from this. perhaps it's just the 12.2 drivers.

any1 else run into this issue?

Zerocore shutdown is working fine on my trifire with rc11. Btw, what output are you using to connect your display? Someone posed a theory that it only works if you are using at least one dvi.

This was mentioned in a dedicated topic at overclockers.ru. I'll try and find where this info came from. Will post here.

Also 1 or 2 owners noticed too high vrm temps.

How does that equal serious problems and product being recalled? I was expecting a press release or links to a silent recall.

Smo that issue is related to the Asus cards. Hopefully yours is fine.

I concur. It's almost impossible to poorly seat a reference cooler (TIM application is a whole other issue) since it is like mating two halves together. And because of it's size and framework it makes contact with the whole pcb like a sandwich. The Asus and Gigabyte (Windforce) and others that use heatpipes are only mounted via the four screws around the gpu. Thus proper seating becomes a serious issue.

Using 12.3 without issue.

Just make sure you have things done like having your Windows Updated. Your mobo drivers properly installed, etc. A lot of people seem to be having driver issues (across the board, not just 12.3), and I am not sure if there are conflicts with different pieces of hardware, an issue with people not having mobo drivers installed, old BIOSes on their mobo, etc..

But like I said, I haven't had any issues with the cata drivers and my 7970. But I _do_ have all the proper drivers for my hardware installed, and my Windows is up-to-date, so not sure if that has something to do with it. But who knows, maybe there are conflicts with other pieces of hardware and I just so happened to get lucky.
