AMD 7970 RUNNING WITH 1155 MOBO AND CPU?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys my question is simple past summer i spent out a grand on parts compponants as a farther i cant afford to go out buy all new parts. Not without the wife killing me first, So that said i know the 7970 in compatable but ive not seen no user reviews of one running on a 1155.
If anyone has ran this GPU on a p67 series please can you confirm all is well. i know there maybe a performance decrease.
Thanks guys:thumb:


im also looking at the xfx black edition with liquid cooling if thats right blushsmiley.gif

If you are worried about the 7970 performance on PCIe 2.0 over PCIe 3.0, there's nothing to worry about. Sandy Bridge will run fine with 7970.

 

Here; PCI Express 3.0 Has Zero Performance Incentive for Radeon HD 7970: Tests

 

If you are looking to water cool the 7970, get the reference design. The waterblock for reference design is available from EK.

WOW cheers guys some great links there. well looks like i have no worries.
This is the card i was looking at

http://www.anandtech.com/print/5314

If any of you guys think this not good salution let me know. i have recently moved from having a SLI GTX560 kfa2 oc ex.
With nvidia drivers being a pain on this model and others on 500 series it seems with TDR all over the place i have to jump ship.
having been a fan of nvidia i did have a ati 4870 for some time till i went back last year to nvidia big mistake.

Other note what does AMD offer in away of physix thanks chaps.
