What Overclock is good for the 7970 I head using the drivers and clocking the core to max and memeroy to max was good but for some reason I crash in bf3 and other games when doing it and the power is on the 20% mark

Played an hour so each of BFBC2 and BF3 with no issues. Maybe the drivers will be okay...

OK you guys with Eyefinity crashes in BF3/Crysis 2 and DX11 in general check this out.

Since I got my new samsung 830s, I've been throwing on new os for each driver. Anyways to the point, those dx11 eyefinity crashes are due to a msvcrt.dll which is a c runtime file. I figured this file gets updated when you run win update, and it gets changed quite a bit AND it has really serious security rights on it to further complicate things. I got an older version thinking I would swap dll's and see. I managed to swap the file thru playing with rights trickery, and swapped files.

Long story short it fubard the install. At this point I could either do the command line deal and revert the file or windows repair. I opted for windows repair and it blasted out the sys32 folder and replaced the runtimes. Thus in my long winded adventure, having windows run repair fixed this msvcrt bug and voila, Crysis 2 runs in dx11 in eyefinity.

Previously I've had issues running all the drivers past 12.2 to 12.4, all of them exhibited bsod 116 msvcrt at some point or other. I'm currently running 12.3 whql and crosses fingers it continues to work. So far its pretty stable, I'm vnc'd into the box with Crysis 2 running as I type this.

12.3 were total crap for me. I had the same issue you describe and many more. I switched back to 8.95.0 and the problem was gone. They're the best and most stable drivers imo.

is this a driver problem? the down clock one idles at 51c and the one that doesnt downclock idles at 64c....

Or you can run a higher fan speed. More noise, sure, but your cards will will thank you. I run both of mine at 75% fan, loud as hell, but I play with a headset so I don't even hear them. Also, capping the fps with a limiter, I recommend Dxtory, will keep temps up to 10 degrees cooler.

What drivers are you on? I just got my Lightning and it's booted to a low res screen, I haven't touched anything yet but I usually take that as needing to re/install drivers. I was/am on RC11, but might go to 12.3 if there are BF3 gains to be had. With my DCII at 1100/1500 I ran everything completely maxed out, no motion blur, 2xMSAA. I can record at a solid 60fps with those settings. I want to be able to push it to 4xMSAA and still record solidly at those settings. My Lightning will go further than my DCII did purely because I can overvolt safely, but will one card do that anyway? I'll be pushing my CPU further next week too, when my H100 gets here.

Speaking of which, today actually worked out rather well for me biggrin.gif

I was meant to start work at 5, but woke up at 540 :S Rushed about and got to work by 6, and said I'd work until 3 instead of 2. No worries for them, but my Lightning was onboard with driver this morning and I was hoping to get home in time to get it. He usually delivers between 1 and 2 so it was going to be slim, but 3 ruined it. Then, as I was leaving, the manager asked me to do an extra job which ended up taking half an hour, so I thought I'd go to the post office just in case. Walked in right behind the AAE man, and I'm about to put the card in my system wheee.gif

EDIT: It just wanted a reboot, installed AB now. I need a new Windows install though so I'll probably start OCing once everything is set up correctly with my H100 etc.

This is my first on your forum. I attempted to flash my reference Sapphire HD 7970 with the new non-reference Sapphire HD 7970 OC Dual-X Bios I found in the Tech Power UP! Bios database. I have done it previously with my XFX HD 6970 with no issues. I tried winflash and atiflash, neither of them would do anything. Followed the instruction exactly as stated, with no change. Is it possible the reference card is not allowing either of the dual bios switches slots to take the non-reference bios flash? rolleyes.gif

Any responses would be greatly appreciated,

Thank you,

Frank in Alabama.

I have a 76.6% ASIC quality, that seems about average from what I've seen on here. AB is giving me a stock of 1112mV.

Bios 2 is locked and the fail safe, don't try to flash to it,

Bios 1 is unlocked and flashable.

You should really do some research before attempting to flash, very easy to end up with a brick or at best difficult to recover.

 

You will need a boot disk or boot usb.
Once you have ati flash and the bios stored onto your newly formatted usb or cd...
Select it as your primary boot option...it will load into dos.
Then type the following....

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Atiflash.exe -fs -p 0 (name of rom or bin) for your primary GPU
Atiflash.exe -fs -p 1 (name of rom or bin) for your secondary GPU
