This is how I did my fresh install the other day. Install Windows, 12.3 drivers including latest CAP, wait for all Windows updates etc. Then, download the two files directly (not the patch) and place them in system32 and SYSWOW64 respectively. Reboot. THEN install Afterburner, don't start it. Go straight in and enable UOM. Voila! All works fine. I haven't tested games or benches yet because I've been busy, but I can confirm that UOM in afterburner works for me using that procedure.
Works for me?

While playing BF3 on max settings, I got a temp of ~60C. I'll run HWinfo64 while playing again.

EDIT: with HWinfo64 I got 79C (VRM), with @ 50% fans speed playing BF3. Any good? I havent OC'ed yet, still trying to learn.

So I'm looking to crossfire soon, probably within the next couple of weeks. So with the new card I'll be getting a couple of other things, ssd, some faster fans (to keep me happy until I can WC, which will hopefully be soon wheee.gif ), and a new CPU/mobo (maybe), however I'm at don't know what to get, either a 7970, 7950, or wait for 7990. My questions are: 1. Will the 7950 or 7990 cf with a 7970, I've asked and looked but only come up with answers for previous gens. 2. Currently I have an i5 2500K will there be a bottleneck? I have only ever run single card for my entire life, ever since the Quake 2 days, so I have no experience in terms of how adding another gfx will effect my system.

I'm only going reference as I prefer to have the hot air go straight out the back of the case, and also for WCing later. Edit: I will also be going eyefinity 120Hz (if possible) hence the upgrade.

Sounds like you got lucky, or they fixed the VRM controller bug. Core is fine, VRMs are a bit hot but nothing to worry about smile.gif

I'm having issues with Afterburner reporting min VRM temp as -127 and max as 96, but it's hovering at ~45 the whole time (just idling, haven't put it under any kind of heavy load yet). Haven't looked at HWiNFO.

Just switched back to RC11 and it is working perfectly now. Unlike the 12.3 official drivers, it now downclocks my 2nd card back down to 2d mode.

What's up with AMD? If they were to release an official driver, wouldn't it be fixing problems, not causing more problems? If some people are less aware that this is happening, they are adding more heat to their card and they wouldn't even know it.

Is there any way to lower reference fan rpm lower than 20%? I mean when i lower it with msi af, it still stays 1200 rpm, which is pretty loud for me, may be there is bios with lower fan speed?

You did mention the Rampage was not able to detect the second 7970. Have you ruled out hardware motherboard, PCIe slot or it's the latest BIOS? BSOD116 could be hardware related.

 

Crossfire should have no issue with any drivers for 7970s. Only some users with multi-gpu Eyefinity have issues.

Have you got your head inside the case? blinksmiley.gif

20% is almost silent. I have two of them, about a metre from my head, and with the windows open I can barely hear it over general outdoor noise.

Also, I can drop mine below 20%. I have just set it to 15%, and it drops to 1000RPM, but that is the lowest it will go. It sounds exactly the same as 20% BTW biggrin.gif. Have you adjusted the custom fan curve in Afterburner?

Also, for the BSOD 116, try running Prime95 (with error checking), and also booting with Memtest to see if the problem is not related to your GPU. If you get errors in either of these, then it's probably a RAM problem.

Anyone know how to fix MSI AB for those who have crossfire?
I get that problem where I cant clock the second card because the values just goes back to 0 when clicking "Apply"
Ive tryed to format the PC and everything.

Seems like this new drivers really make fuss
