Doesn't look good but there are other areas to consider such as monitor connections and/or driver conflicts...

If that's stock settings I would just RMA it.

Has anyone been able to solve the monitor sleep issue or flash 2d clock issue by doing a fresh install?

A quick feedback on 12.4 and cap 12.3 from me....

I have been thru everything with these cards, and things seemed random, suddenly one day after trying everything it all worked, that was on 12.3 drivers. My biggest problem with 12.3 was the alan wake didn't like crossfire and i got a annoying flimmering line down on the bottom of my screen when i watched movies/youtube/series ans such...

With 12.4 drivers...
Watching video: Flawless
3dmark11: Flawless
Mass effect 3: Flawless
Syndicate: Flawless
Fallout Nv: Laggy/studdery like always (not because of graphics cards...)
Saints row 3: Flawless
Alan Wake: Flawless
Bf3: Freezes at startup same as with 12.3 but runs Flawless (+120fps avg with overclock)

All-in-all really good ! biggrin.gif

Your problem is the card goes to 2d clocks. Now what you need to make sure is that there are no videos open or any embedded video on anywebpage. Having any video will cause the card to downclock to abt 500 to play the video or the video will crash and you will get an adobe crash error

Same problem here. Just Get RC11. I have to restart the PC each time i want to play a game. Basically after idle or non 3D mode the GPU enters this low state mode which does not get out of. It has nothing to do with clocks.

Can anyone run a Crysis 1/2 bench in CF or link me to one please? I couldn't find many using Google search but seems like my scores are pretty low because they sit around 580s range. Both my cards are always sitting in 65%~ range.

Here's a Crysis 2 one. 60fps at stock speeds and the 67fps is at 1100/1575 with the AB showing both benches with GPU usage around 65%
crysis2bench.png

Here's the Crysis 1. GPU usage on both is only 75% and ran at stock 925/1375 speeds.

These numbers seem a low and same with GPU usage. I doubt my 2600k at 4.5ghz is the choke point for two 7970s....I ran a Crysis 1 bench with 1 card at 1100/1575 and netted me 56fps with 95%~ GPU usage. I am on RC11, are these numbers right?

***Edit:
Just realized my Crysis 2 bench was ran at the lowest "High" settings so I reran it with Ultra @ 1100/1575:
crysis2benchultra.png

Same results from Ultra/High settings at 1100/1575 @ 67fps~ with GPU usage floating around 65%

Hi Chaps,

Need some advice if you don't mind. I'm making the jump over from Nvidia and I think i've narrowed my new GPU choices down to a 7950 and i'm torn between the XFX and the powercolor because they both have black PCB's (lame I know). Powercolor seems to have better reviews from users in terms of quality but they have two models, the standard and the PCS+. Is the PCS+ just a model with higher stock clock (factory overclock applied) and better cooling. The reason for asking is that I will overclock the card anyway and be watercooling it so is there any reason for me to spend the extra £ on the PCS+?

Thanks
Black Pearl
