Just know, it's not a quality control issue, some of the AMD partners started using different capacitors, and one is about 1mm taller. The PCB is still the same layout, but the capacitors just are different heights. EK responded to this super-fast, and is notching all the blocks made for the tall capacitor post Feb 25. So any block made after Feb 25 won't have an issue. Also, as far as I am aware, PowerColor is the only one doing this (MSI maybe, too?), but I could be mistaken--I have one of these PowerColors. Performs well, but just has that blasted tall capacitor lol.
Also, I had asked frozencpu about this last week, they are aware and have put a note on the description of the blocks. If you are worried call the order in, that's what they told me to do. I just put in a order for a 7970 block last night and simply put in a note saying I wanted one with the notch for the taller capacitor. I am going to call here in a bit just to make sure they got the note, but unless it's old stock (prior to Feb 25), they should only have the revised blocks anyways.
In regard to FrozenCPU themselves: I have had great luck with frozencpu (they are located in East Rochester, New York), they've shipped every one of my orders the same day (if I order before their cut off), and I am quite certain I am over 2k worth of orders (various watercooling goodies) within the last 12 months. Just thought I would put in my 2cents.gif, I really like that shop. In fact, I will wait for something to come back in stock at frozen, rather than order from somewhere else...and I am impatient lol, so that's saying something. smile.gif
Hope this helps.

+1 ... I've used frozen cpu in the past... and my new 7970 is a sapphire ... so I think I'll buy from FCPU again.

i tried it last night on CCC 8.9.21.2 RC11, then updated to whatever was most current before yesterdays CCC 8.95.5 got posted, both had the issue. I'll try CCC 8.95.5, but can't test it until after work.

So Im returning my 7950 cause I keep getting freezes when PC has been idle for hours.

I cant do anything at all other than move the mouse, backgrounds are black, I cant see the startmenu other than the Icon, but I cant click it.
And I can see the previous windows I had open, but cant interact with anything.
((Not to forget the Mousepointer bug is back))

Good Job AMD.



Quick reply doesnt work?

Hello! Hopefully I'll be joining this club soon. However, I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on which manufacturer to go with. I haven't had much experience with any in the past to know their ups and downs. I've been waiting to see if that XFX DD Radeon HD 7970 BE gets stocked on NewEgg since I don't need the card any time soon, but I was hoping to learn more about the quality of components XFX and other manufacturer's use. Feel free to PM me with any advice. Here's to hopping I join soon! Thanks!

Edit: Does XFX still have their lifetime warranty for their 7970s (mainly the DD BE)? I hear some people say it's been removed and now is only 2-year but others say once you register the card you upgrade from 2-year to lifetime. Also, I ran out of PMs for the day so pardon me if I don't reply.

I'm using a Diamond and a Visiontek. Both are playing well with no issues other that they whine a bit if overclocked like crazy. My VisionTek shows lifetime warranty on the box. My Diamond has 5yr limited.

Don't bother with 8.95.5, its crash city. I have not been able to get the lastest beta to run anything but Heaven. BF3 crashes, Crysis 2 crashes, Dirt 3 crashes, stock or overclocked. What the hell AMD?

I've no idea what they're doing, but this is just straight crash BSOD 116, with CAPS or w/o. With AB on or w/o. Btw, eyefinity 2.1 features still broke, center start button does not auto enable (have to manully right click to open catalyst before it enables), well at least this driver it still works. 12.2 would stop centering after the next boot. I'm getting tired of these driver updates. mad.gif

Good Job AMD.
Quick reply doesnt work?

Did you try the new beta? or fiddling with powerplay through afterburner?

Think the problem is everyone is testing these drivers to fix various issues on all cards and rarely stating exactly what their card setup is. Would help a lot if everyone would post their exact card, whether it's in crossfire or not, etc... so you know if that driver might help with your issues.
