also I found that ATIMAN cleans a little better than driver sweeper.

exactly. why even bother with amd overdrive to begin with? just disable it and use afterburner for your overclocking.

Bought what I thought was an AMD branded card and received a sapphire card. Good or bad? How have they been for overclocking?

Depends how it is cooled :-)
If for instance you got a HD7950 and you have the standard Sapphire card you only get 1 cooling fan, if you have the HD7950 sapphire oc edition you have 2 cooling fans which should give you higher OC capabilities thumb.gif

Not my experience. My HIS card performs in a similar manner to air vs under water. More asking if sapphire cards are duds when it comes to overclocking.

My buddies 7950 is freezing at stock about twice a day, and he's discovered that after waking it from sleep performance is down about 30 fps in wow. Running 12.2 with cap 1 and AB beta 14. Anybody else got these issues?

Just be careful man, watch readings on all sensors. I was getting some real worrying jumps on it. Enough to make me go back to the stock bios. Very wacky.

I haven't seen that, but I'll keep an eye out. Thanks for lookin out.

Send a PM to pioneerisloud mate, he's been having the same issue and might be able to help.

Your the one with the card bud, overclock it and you tell us if it's a dud. Every card is it's own animal. Water will let you go further with less volts thats for sure. My VRM temps on water never reach 50c and on air they were going above 80c. My card can run stable at 1200/1600 if temps are under 70c loaded. If it hits 75c, it will crash. I have 1 card on air and 1 on water. Can't wait to have them both on water. It does make a difference and being silent is golden.

Yeah have not installed it yet. Reason I asked was I remember there being a thread of people complaining about lame overclocks, think most of them were sapphire owners.
