I wish my card would enter idle clocks when im not using 3d apps. mad.gif
kind of annoying. Happy with the overclocks so far though.

What are you using to oc with? If yer using AB, set the 2d profile to stock clocks and the clocks should drop to 300/150. Although I noticed that 12.3 didn't allow my slave cards to drop clocks and I went back to rc11 and everything is back to normal.

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.

Cheers guys - I checked the screws (which are all tight) and the clearances around the card (which are all fine) but it's still running ~20c hotter than my other card and I have absolutely no idea why!

I'm tempted to pull it apart and check the TIM but I'd have to ask about my warranty first.

As I figured out, rev. 1.0 is a test sample. These samples were sent to reviewers, for exumple here is the review of one of the cards: http://oclab.ru/topic/obzor-videokartyi-asus-hd-7970-direct-cuii-top-chast-2-razgon There is written:

Пожалуй, на тестировании в FurMark пришло время оторвать от замеров температуры и донести до читателей политику компании ASUS относительно представленного нам продукта. Перед нами видеокарта ASUS HD 7970 Direct CUII TOP, которая имеет ревизию печатной платы 1.0 и в продаже данные видеокарты не появятся из-за ряда недочетов, выявленных внутренним тестированием. Поскольку некоторые неисправности были найдены уже после отправки семплов из главного офиса в региональные, то у нас и появилась возможность поделиться собственными наблюдениями о предстоящей новинке.

Perhaps, while testing in FurMark it's time to tear from temperature measurements and inform readers about the ASUS's policy of providing products for testing. We were provided with the ASUS HD 7970 Direct CUII TOP video card, which has a PCB revision 1.0 and would not go on sale due to a number of deficiencies identified by internal testing. Since some faults were found after sending samples from the main office to the regional, we now have the opportunity to share our own observations about the upcoming new product.

Below is a videoclip that shows some artifacts during testing in furmark. Despite the fact that rev. 1.0 cards were not for sale, some number of these cards has been sold, particularly in Russia.

This info isn't 100% checked and one of rev. 1.0 owners has already sent a letter to ASUS office asking them to comment it.

I would probably word your comment previously differently because it gives the impression that there is a widespread problem with retail/gold product which I'm not sure that exists. Though, Asus does indeed have an issue with their laziness and the 7950 DCII, but I'm not sure if that is related to the 7970 DCII which has a wholly different cooler.

Do any of you running crossfire runs in to this issue aswell?

has anyone experience this issue??? is this a known issue?
post #5459 of 38704
i have tried using only one card and that seems to work. the problem with that is.... then when i try to disable corssfire VIA game profile in ccc it doesent seem to work, it still usses both of my cards no matter if i disable the crossfire settings....
i need to completely disable the crossfire in the comoputer via CCC. the main crossfire setting if you know what i mean..

its kind of annoying doing this everytime i play SC2.

just wanna make sure im not the onlyone seeing graphics corruption in SC2 when using 2 7970s...
