MSAA isn't bad with these cards anymore wink.gif
Me too, you don't have bad cards... It's the norm. If you crank your fans up to 100% while gaming you'll notice that the errors disappear.
This is because the chip is temperature sensitive... the colder the card, the higher the overclock with out the errors.
On air, ive settled for 1050/1400 mhz. 100% stable and default fan profile.

its 10-40fps increase with MSAA off compared to 4x MSAA. So I think Nvidia is still better in that area.
My card is at 1075/1500 atm, can go further it looks like!

Set your Afterburner fan profile as shown to cool your GPU by 10 degrees c
If your using air and overclocking, then the default fan profile might be a little light for the overclock so you will need to tune a more aggressive profile.
Setting the fan profile as shown in the image below, dropped my temps from 80-83c to 65-73c.
Fan acoustics are very bearable and not too different from default fan profile.
Don't forget to change the hysteresis and the update period as shown also.
Make sure you hit the "user setting" button near the fan slider till it turns red or green whatever colour scheme your running.

When you say you experience no micro stutter at all, is it because you don't notice it? Or are you 100% sure it doesn't micro stutter? Because some people are experiencing CF stutter as well and I know some people notice it, and some people don't when it is there.

Im getting absolutely none... ive stated this so much and everyones finding it hard to believe yessir.gif
NO MICROSTUTTER for me guys, ive tested it by crouch moving in all my games and the edge of the monitor doesn't skip a heart beat of rendering.

Same with me man, I was getting the odd microstutter with my CF 5870s, but now that I have just a 7970, I dont think ive ever really seen a microstutter, even in BF3.

Well, of course you're not going to microstutter with a single card...

Yeah microstutter is a multi gpu thing...............................of the past thumbsupsmiley.png

Seeing as these cards appear to be temp sensitive as many have stated, can someone overclock with say 80 or so % fan speed? I just would like to see how much further such fan speeds allow the core to go. Thanks smile.gif

I think someone tested with 100% fan speed to see the max overclock. It was some pages back but it the O/C scaled well as the temps dropped with the aggressive fan profile.

Denim - You can live with the fan over say 50%? I don't know if I just became too spoiled by the accelero on my 580 but anything over 45% sounds terrible to me...

I think I might end up grabbing another one for this card.

This^^

Hopefully there will be WC versions so I dont have to bother with installing blocks myself ^^

I told you before that Afterburner is not really ready yet for 7970. Asus are working on a new GPU tweak utility (not the one included with the Asus 7970!), working MUCH better right now then Afterburner with the 7970. I told you before, but you didn't listen. Like always. Told you to flash your BIOS with an Asus BIOS, and to find Shamino post about the new Asus GPU tweak utility that will come out soon. You can't download it yet from Asus website. Shamino did post a link to it. Search it.
Also. Asus are pumping new BIOS for the Rampage IV to help OC the 7970 better! We are all using BETA and alot of motherboards (andf probably your...) are flaky with the 7970 right now. Just like the new Rampage IV that need new BIOS to push the 7970 more... All the manufacturers will update their motherboard BIOS probably for better 7970 support, just like Asus are doing.
So wait before making big definitive conclusions like you did... wink.gif
Here's a post on OCN telling exactly what I told you:
"Some tips I found on ATF:
Use the drivers off the AMD website here:
http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles...00-series.aspx
- Disabling AMD overdrive in CCC can be helpful. What happens, if you're using MSI afterburner, afterburner will load first during windows startup and then CCC will load and over write your voltages/clock settings.
- Disabling ULPS in sapphire trixx is equivalent to enabling power tune +20% in CCC. Sapphire Trixx right now is more reliable than MSI afterburner.
- Sapphire trixx is an excellent utility to utilize, it gives more accurate voltages than the most recent MSI afterburner BETA
- When using MSI afterburner, run it with the command line argument -xcl, then reboot to unlock gpu clocks
- Before installing your 7970, be sure to run driver sweeper after a SAFE BOOT and completely remove all prior registry traces of your last vidcard - I did this to remove traces of my 580s.
- Using a voltage monitor, sapphire trixx is more accurate on reporting GPU voltage. I think MSI afterburner still needs a bit of work in this aspect.
- If you're overclocking, set a custom fan profile in MSI afterburner or sapphire trixx. Do not use auto fan! It will not ramp up (fan speed) fast enough for overclocked GPU's most of the time. You can also use a set manual fan speed if you dont mind going full speed 100% of the time
thats all for now''

I was referring to your comment about the 7xxx series driver being "beta", not about beta overclocking software.

Definition of Beta: A nearly complete prototype of a product (as software)

The 7xxx series drivers on the AMD web site are official public release drivers for the card that they have worked on for months. There is nothing beta about them.

What you are referring to is simply the drivers being new or immature, leaving the door open for future performances increases.
