I loose another hour of life, I'll just make up for it by not sleeping as much tonight tongue.gif

Generally, higher is better due to lower voltage but asic % doesn't have a direct correlation on overclock. It's still down to the lottery.

What I mean is when you move clocks up, do one at a time. You are looking for the point where memory clock returns start to shrink. For ex. if you move mem clock up 5 mhz and you get 5pts in return, then you go up 5mhz more and you get back 2pts in return. That shrinking return is a sign of error correction working. At that point I would drop mem clock down a little bit for margin.
Once you've found your sweet spot, then try a game etc.

Ok, I did some testing in Heaven 2.5 (8xAA, 16xAF, 1920x1080, rest default)

I lowered core clock a little to 1150 and left the voltage at 1.175v

(mem speed - avg fps - score)
1) 1460mhz - 49 - 1233
2) 1490mhz - 49,2 - 1239
3) 1520mhz - 49,7 - 1253
4) 1550mhz - 50,2 - 1266
5) 1560mhz - 50,3 - 1266
6) 1570mhz - 50,4 - 1269
7) 1580mhz - 50,5 - 1272

Now, what do you guys think my stable memory speed is or should be ?
To me this looks like 1550mhz would be the best setting.
You guys agree?
Thx for your suggestions!

Yea, 1550 is the break even point. Look at how much it takes to get .1fps lol. It's getting into EC land there.

Thought the same smile.gif
I am now doing the same test with my core clock and mem clock at 1550

So far I got
(core speed - avg fps - score)
1) 1150mhz - 50,2 - 1266
2) 1160mhz - 50,3 - 1268
3) 1170mhz - 50,7 - 1278
4) 1180mhz - 51,1 - 1287
5) 1190mhz - 51,2 - 1291
6) 1200mhz - no result (Unigine fatal error !) + "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding"

Will edit as I go wink.gif
Would appreciate the same feedback from you as you did with the memory ! thumb.gif

EDIT : this seems pretty easy, I would say my max core clock is 1180mhz on 1.175 voltage, you agree tsm106?

When you try to do > 1600mhz you have locks/freeze ?

Thanks for the link, good read!
I tried 1580mhz for the memory but I got driver errors (driver stopped responding) while playing latest Batman game.

Lol, I love amazon. This is my quick picks for the day, ie. their customized gold deals. 3930k for 560, nzxt 8pin pcie 7.40. I got three cards on gold deals, sapphire 7970/xfx be/dc2t. But I'm sending the dc2t back.

I have this tearing (idk if that's even the right word here) problem that has been present in all driver versions. It only happens when I'm in duplicate mode and then only on one monitor. If in CCC I choose "make preferred" that display will be clean while the other will have the tearing. Anyone know what I can do other than RMA?

My card is the Sapphire 7950, I've also lowered and raised the clocks as well as power slider in CCC

Well, first try with the new drivers. Fail. First I tried just installing over Rc11, didn't work. windows was fine. could run any bench, no bsod, just driver crash.

Doing fresh install. Disabling ULPS, installing AB, Enabling UOM, and give it a go. See in a few min.

This process of driver changes would really suck if I didn't have these 2 Vertex 3's in raid0.
