post #5611 of 38701
Downloaded 12.3 pre from amd's site. Latest driver. I have not overclocked my GPU. I dont have afterburner or asus gpu tweak. My cpu idle is around 30c amd thr VRM's i think was called the power tempture under ASUS GPU tweak ? Well it idled at 60c and i saw it pop up to mid 80's when i had a little furmark work befor it crashed. Nohig besides fumark works at all after it loads.. can i check the cooler to see if its mounted properly without voiding the warrenty? I wouldnt have to take the heat sink off, just the fans and shroud to see if its making good contact? The GPU temps never pass 70c

One more interesting post about manufacturing quality of the reference heatsink madsmiley.png :

http://forums.overclockers.ru/viewtopic.php?p=9415875#p9415875

This is a HIS 7970 H797F3G2M. How can a $550 card be made so disgusting?! Yet the oracool's card itself is pretty good at overclocking and after "repairing" the heatsink shows good temps under load. Also have a look at pcb. It is blue, it was made just two weeks ago, and it has no vrm temp sensors. Is it a new revision of reference pcb or just HIS's own "improvement"?

Negatively interesting pal, unfortunately. Fortunately, my Giga Wind 7950 gives me extremely good temps and almost completely silent. For first time I'm 100% satisfied about the temps/noise behavior.

By the way, did you find anything about those black lines/triangles? Yesterday I disabled Overdrive in CCC and haven't seen them again, but they're rare anyway and probably they'll re-appear later, unless Overdrive is the total culprit.

If I'll see 'em again, I'll revert the clocks of my card from 900Mhz to default to see, 'cause I was getting similar artifacts with my ex-Nvidia when I was overclocking above its limits. I truly hope it's not the case now.

Every time I search for drivers, all I find is the 12.2 one. How do you find the 12.3 on AMD's site?

Hello there everyone..

Good to see I'm not the only one with problems I guess? doh.gif

I think my XFX Radeon 7950 DD might have some issues.
It sometimes hard locks on me. Not really funny when playing BF3 I might add tongue.gif
But the best thing was yesterday when I was playing World of Warcraft. Only doing Guild Management stuff.. So I think the core activity was maybe 50ish %. The Core temperature hit 95 Degrees.. Celsius. I'm running stock core/memory speeds.

My case is an Corsair Obsidian 700D. only with stock fans.. I know.. not really an superb Airflow case, but I still think 95 Degrees sounds brutal, in "normal" temperature room.

I was running 12.2 Drivers with 12.2 Cap Profile I think..

Any thoughts? thinking.gif

I dont have the DD, I have the reference cooler 7970 BE and while I have never seen 95c I do see 85c regularly. I was tempted to swap the TIM but my search results were that the difference is negligible on these cards. I was waiting for the Swiftech block to be released but I may have to just go with EK if they dont hurry up.
