[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 662

post #6611 of 38701
Crossfired ASUS 7950 CU][ on a Rampage IV.

Fixed the heatsink issue easily with washers on the heatsink mount screws. Just put em on the widened section by the screw head.


Funny thing happened to me with this system. The XMP in my Dominator Cas7 4x4gb ram told the motherboard "burn me to cinders" and the motherboard did. tongue.gif

Not completely happy with the massive weight of the 3 slot sinks, so going to check to see if a pair of Zalman 3000 for the 6970 will mount up nice.

When I set AA in Battlefield nothing happens. It still looks like AA is turned off and there are still jaggies everywhere + I get lower FPS. Even if I try to force it through CCC or RadeonPro, nothing happens. Also I found another issue. My card's usage wont go past 50% unless I alt-tab and re-enter the game. I am currently running this card @ 975/1450 @ 1.131v and it will not go any higher than this. I have tried cranking the voltage all the way up to 2.0 and it will not stay stable at 1000/1500. I am using the Sapphire 7950 OC Edition.

I can't seem to find a stable overclock or Tribes: Ascend just doesn't like Crossfire on these cards, lol. I only have it at 1000/1450. I've tried bumping voltage to 1.050 from 0.993, but still no luck. Gonna try 1.100 next.

Anyone have the issue with crossfire enabled windows sometimes hangs at the loading screen? Only get it with xfire on.

I am using the Sapphire 7950 OC Edition.

I have a 2500k @ 5ghz and that runs around 50-70% usage while both of my 7970's are running at 99% all time. If you enable Vsync and your locked at 60fps, then your gpu's wont be at 99%, it's only when you disable Vsync or your not getting 60fps that you would see 99% usage. I use no AA in game and enabled 4xAA in CCC and it works perfect. Looks better than using 4xAA in game. With using in game AA my fps drops to 50-60fps with Ultra settings in Eyefinity 5884x1080p. If I use 4xAA in CCC with ultra settings, I get 75-150fps and usually it's around 100-120fps. Never dropped below 75fps with settings like that. Don't Alt-tab out of the game and make changes. Make changes in game and then exit, make changes in CCC, then restart the game and play, don't tab out, use Alt-enter if its in window mode. I'm using Rc11 if that's not what your using, you may want to try.

Nope, no issues at the load screen for me. I don't even see the load screen really because of my 2 Vertex 3's in a raid 0 is over 1gb/s read and write. I have crossfire on and eyefinity setup.

I don't alt-tab to make changes to CCC or anything. It is just that it wouldn't use all the GPU usage. Alt-Tabbing and re-entering the game fixed that. Also if I don't use Vsync I get massive screen tearing. What exactly are your settings in CCC and do you turn off AA in-game? Last thing, is there a way to make it so I can go past 1100 core clocks in Afterburner?

I only set 4xAA in CCC and don't touch anything else. Don't even open overdrive. I set in game AA to "off". I don't get much screen tearing at all and I have 3 screens, it usually would show worst on 3 over 1. Also, WHAT driver are you using???

For getting Afterburner to clock higher, you just have to read a little in here. It's been said numerous times. Rc11 is the only driver that lets you unlock unofficial overclocking mode without having to patch files. If your on Rc11, just go to C: / x86 program files / Msi folder / then click on the cfg file and go to the bottom of the page, change Unofficial overclocking mode to 1 instead of 0. You need to have Msi closed when you do this. When you open Msi again, it will prompt you and just hit yes.

Hey guys.

Have anyone of you tried out the ARCTRIC Cooler for the 7950/7970 ? .. .I had one on a 6950, it was amazing.

Considering to buy one, but wanted to hear if anyone had it atm.

It should be the same thing as the one you had on the 6950. The only thing they changed was the mounting on it, because of the way the die sits on the 7900 cards. So if you liked your old one...you'll like this one too, as its the same cooler, just different mounting (and it works on previous 6900 and GTX 5xx cards too if I recall right).

I was using RC11 but just switched back to 12.2 again. Strange, when I have it set to 4x AA in CCC it doesn't work in-game. You use Override Application Settings, correct? The only game I actually got it AA to work with so far has been League of Legends.
