Those Windforce coolers are good. The 7950 does not have vrm heatsink and 7970 does. Thats the only difference between cards. Cooler stays quieter and GPU stays cooler as long as your case has good air ventilation. Remember, that those aftermarket coolers blow air inside the case. My card is perfectly stable @ 1.2v 1230/1750. Played hours of BF3 with this setting.

All the black and "white" chips? Or only the "white" ones?

I will probably get copper or aluminium heatsink in shape of Z on top of those and have 4 fans blowing on it. So i think it should be much better then without any.

well regardless i'm getting crap load of problems and instability with even 1 of them
so i got 2 of these beast ASUS HD7970-DC2T-3GD5
however tested and tried on a clean Win7 x64bit install on both Intel and AMD platform
and it crashes randomly, and it hangs on all the 3D mark benches
i have several old ATI 5900, 6800 and 6900 series, and many of even older ATI X series, all of them runs great on both rigs (intel / AMD platform)
is quite discomforting and stressful not being able to fully enjoy your $1500 purchase in game, only old games runs fine on the 7970, but most of the newer games crashes as soon as it loads into the game, regardless of Crossfire or not.
all my old cards can fully complete the 3Dmark benches without any error, yet the 7970 crashes on the spot.
I'm contemplating going for the 7800 series, since the latest Catalyst 12-3 drivers just provided official support for them.
I'll like to hear some feedback on the 7800 cards, are they as problematic as the 7970?
how about the 7950, i'll assume the 7950s faces the same issue as they are on the same trunk of the series

Ive had nothing but problems with crossfire with afterburner. With AB installed, windows hangs on startup randomly. Tried all the drivers, same problem. Fresh install. I uninstalled AB and went back to RC 11 drivers and have been running them at stock volts since.
No game needs 2 overclocked cards anyway so im not too bothered. Hopefully drivers will be better by the time I need to overclock them to maxout crysis 3 and the likes.

Same as me, his temps are bad for water.

You should watercool them my friend.

I did some benchmarking last night and just wanted to make sure I'm doing this right, also don't want to damage my card.

I used GPU Tweak for the over-clocking

GPU Temp Max: 60c
GPU Clock, MHz: 1125
GPU Usage Max: 97
GPU Voltage, mV: (1185 Max) - 1120 Average
FAN: 60%
PCIE12V, mV: (12000.0 Max) - 11968 Average
Memory Temp: 26c
Memory Clock, MHz: (5680 Max) - 5600 Average
Memory Usage, MB: (2572.9 Max) - 2405.8 Average
Power Temp Max: 90c

Heaven Benchmark Results:

Any Advice or help would be Awsome thumb.gif
