After reading some of the horror stories about PPC on this forum, I wouldn't order from that place even if it meant going without the part, indefinitely. I have actually waited weeks for FrozenCPU to get things back in stock to order, even when PPC had the parts the whole time.

You see that PPC? You may have your infamous 'bad customer' blacklist, but don't forget, us consumers bite too... and it's much, much harder. skull.gif

PPC isnt that bad. i got a really good deal on the accelero xtreme 7970 cooler. they had it for $75 when everywhere else wanted $99. a couple other things that i picked that day were cheaper thorugh them than anywhere else i looked. insurance is optional and tbh you dont need it. its not like missing packages is a common occurance these days. i see nothing wrong with the usps shipping price. the ups shipping is what looks like a rip off.

I used them and Jab-Tech for all my W/C parts. I didn't use FrozenCPU because last month when I wanted to cancel an order I placed an hour and 1/2later after placing they charged me a 10% cancellation fee. To me, if it was a first time customer, i would have waived it. Jab-Tech did when I placed the 7970 blocks and found it they might not work with my cards. I think it's John, emailed me right back and said he would change the order for me and recommend what blocks to get and also offered free shipping when they came in. Although I ordered directly from EK, it was nice of him to offer.

Jab-tech is the best imo. Fedex dropped my rx480. I didn't check it till a week or so later, had no clue and well I was busy. I could sense John's troll face behind the screen since I notified him a week later, but then he shrugged and sent out a new one. They be better than Sidewinder. Sidewinder sent me a rad with lots of flux trapped inside and no amount of flushing would remove it. I'm talking big chunks that thudd inside the rad. They wouldn't let me return it for another and forwarded me to swiftech for rma. LOL Wut? I'm not a fan of pawning the customer off on RMAs on brand new product. Yea, last time I buy from them.

Btw svthomas... that so funny with the customer blacklist. It's like they are penalizing you for being their customer lol.

Regardless of voltage, that's the total power you let the card to draw at drivers level. Physical measurement could be different because of OCP (Over Current Protection).

You can not go higher than +125mV over stock voltage based on the ASIC quality. If you go higher than +125mV, the OVP (Over Voltage Protection) will kick in.




Worry not. The lightnings are equipped with goodies to by pass OVP and OCP as in ASUS DCII 7970. That's if you really are up to it biggrin.gif

so max volt will be 1.093(stock) +125vm = 1.218
so what is the advantge if i enable powertune 20% ??? more fps in games or high clocks

I have +180mV and no problems. Even after hours of gaming BF3.

There's a TDP limiter on the card. WHen you hit that limit it will throttle the card. Powertune is a setting to adjust that limit, +20% raises it by said amount.

Are you reading this voltage from AB? Are you reading REAL voltage or intended voltage, because the two are not the same.

Can you try +200mV or +300mV? Maybe it will clock higher and perform much better?

Not sure if sarcasm? It probably would go higher resulting in better performance until it would pop:>
i don't get it, why are some 1,093V and mine is 0,993V at stock?
Is it because the other ones are 900Mhz stock and mine 810 or is there a less capable chip in mine? Oo

What wasn't I clear about and what is this sarcasm? AB does not read REAL VOLTAGE. You can slide it over to 1.4v but that doesn't mean you are feeding the card 1.4v.
