Can anyone explain me how you guys get your drivers ? where do i look for them ? or should i just stick with this since its official ? any advise would be appreciated .

Welcome to OCN. Just read a few pages back and you'll get the answers. 12.3 aren't the most stable drivers.

ZeroCore Power State has nothing to do with program running or not and has nothing to do with PC sleep/hibernate. That's certain criteria must be met for ZeroCore to function.

The problem only seems to appear after long idle periods. I tried having GPU-Z running with logging on to monitor GPU speed and it maintains the 300 MHz clock and has no problem waking from idle. It's definitely the drivers in this case since previous drivers were nowhere near as bad as 12.3 in terms of stability.

also I love my H100 ... but you can do better than the stock fans they provide... I just used their TIM and it worked great on my i920 @4.4 it's rarely sees 70c on loads and idols in 40s ... lastly you can plug the fans into your mobo or I did into my fan controller ... this way you can adjust as needed - gl

I am on 12.3, straight onto a fresh Windows install, no RC11, with latest CAP. It's so far run BF3, Skyrim, and MW3 just fine with no overclock. Hopefully I won't see the issues others have had with unofficial OCing on 12.3. I realised I didn't have tesselation on after I did the test, but it doesn't matter as long as I use the same settings for every test, so I can see when performance starts to take a hit. Once I've found my final OC I'll do a run with normal tesselation so you can see the proper score smile.gif

With the H100, I've bought two 3kRPM Scythe GT's for it, and I'll be setting it up in the top of my case, so the GT's push and the stock 200mm exhaust pulls. I already have a D14, so I don't expect to see much of a change in temps - I got the H100 because of space and aesthetics. The D14 is such a pain to work with and I've just got sick of having to remove it every time I want to do the slightest thing, like reseating my RAM.

I'm not bothered by noise so I'll probably just leave the fans running at max all the time. I tried using a custom profile on my Lightning but it was leaping between 20 and 100 every few seconds so I just leave it at 100 now. Card didn't want to play nice frown.gif

Wow, goodoh then! I'll likely be overvolting further, VRMs are so cool! I'll try to keep my core under 80C though. Keep in mind I don't know if it's game stable just yet - I'll be running BF3 later in the day, too busy right now frown.gif
I suggest you to run Crysis 2 with DX11, and Crysis Warhead, i was passing BF3, but crashed in Crysis 2 DX 11, and i was even passing Crysis 2 and then i crashed in Crysis Warhead.

Hehe, but my sugestion when you are cool, to at least test Crysis Warhead, because if you are not full stable it will crush on some occasion. These GPUs are weird.

i did read some of the previous posts but couldn't find what is the the most proper driver until now . so based on the majority in this thread what is the most best stable driver based on results for the HD 7970 right now ?

also i am just wondering why when i want to update my driver version 8.950.0.0 the program says its up to date ??? .
