post #6251 of 38701
No the joke will be on those that buy the card that was going to be around the $400 mark but are going to charge $550 because it competes. I can't wait to see what it does overclocked vs the 7970 at 1200/1600 or even higher like some others have gotten. So glad I went with the 7970's instead.

I had this problem once I went with eyefinity, and my issue seemed to be attributed to Unofficial Overclocking in MSI Afterburner + monitors going to sleep. My issue was either solved by disabling sleep on the monitors in power options, or by disabling unofficial overclocking in MSI AB. Overclocking past 1125 core was still able to be achieved after disabling unofficial overclocking in MSI AB by using the -xcl flag when opening MSI AB and rebooting.

Here is what I did to fix my issue, not sure if it is the same as yours, but worth noting I guess:

I found this thread and it seemed to work: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1671423
How I fixed it:
Disable unofficial overclocking in the MSI afterburner config file. Reboot
Run MSI afterburner with the -xcl flag. Reboot (this will allow for extended clocks without unofficial being enabled in the config)
That's it. You should now be able to overclock past the 1125 core without unofficial overclocking enabled. My monitors going to sleep and waking up no longer cause my display driver to crash.

I think I will go with the HIS brand again, however tempted by asus as there is an unlocked volts bios floating around. How have the asus cards been performing guys?

You don't need an asus card just for the bios because the bios is not needed if you use Afterburner. The bios does not control OCP.

Here is what I did to fix my issue, not sure if it is the same as yours, but worth noting I guess:

After some more thought, I don't think its necessarily Powerplay, but your cards stability. The cards that have trouble are having issues switching between the different clock and voltage modes. The BIG question or glaring issue is that if you used AB right, the card would be in a low power idle clock before sleep anyways! My main card is at 500/150@.95v due to the eyefinity monitors, so switching between that and a lower state is not a clocking issue.

How do you have AB setup with your 2D profile? What driver are you on? I know that 12.2/12.3 even with the missing files, has issues releasing the clocks to AB. In other words it won't let the clocks drop all the way down. I don't know if its the driver or AB, cuz AB isn't perfect and we def know the Catalyst team is on glue sometimes If you check and see that your memory won't drop... it's indicative of an issue of driver control over clocks. XCL bypasses this by using Overdrive to switch clocks, it doesn't fix the problem right?

I didn't mention overclock nor is it actually about overclocks. Imo it's about AB and its interaction with Powerplay, which AB is supposed to manage w/o a problem. Anyways for the other guys, worst case scenario you can bypass/disable Powerplay in the AB config if you are married to the current driver. Then you can control, well not anywhere as well but still control the lower power mode.

Think we are talking about 2 different things. Modded asus bios removes the 1.3v limit when overclocking. I tried to flash that bios to my current card but would not have it.

Anyway no matter now, I bought another block and an AMD branded card. Cheapest I could find.

TSM you having xfire already, how have you found it so far? What oc, if any, have you got at the moment. Are they under water?

The modded asus bios that was posted way back from kingpin? That bios removed overdrive limits. There is no bios that I know of that can remove a hardwired overvoltage protection, and if you have one you better share it.

It's freaking fast to put it bluntly. Two cards alone are faster than my old workhorse quad 6950s. Three is just wow. I had a feeling I wouldn't need quads again this time and I was right. thumb.gif

lol, never got it to work, so I couldn't tell you. It is in this topic somewhere, give me a few minutes.

This may be well-known, but I've been trying to get more voltage since I got this card on 1/10.
That asus overclock bios and gputweak will do it. Notice the actual voltage in gpuz. Before I was stuck at setting at 1.3v so I could only get about 1.23v load. Setting to 1.4 gets me all the way to 1.31v load. Before I could not get past 1190 stable and now I can set to 1318mv for a stable 1200mhz.
ASIC quality is 55.8% fwiw, so my stock vid is 1.175V(1.12v load). This bios is obviously allowing my to go past +.125 or whatever the hardware OCP limit was thought to be. It allows for ~+200mv. Anyone with a decent clocking chip(mine is really on the bad end of the spectrum) on water should get some nice results with this.

This is the only known OCP bypass... er and the DCII+ROG Hotwire. I was going to switch to 3 DCIIs and a ROG w/ 3820, dammit was so close too, but the DCIIs turned out to be capsized.
