Sorry dude, yea I tried it in both slots, no joy. Also started a new thread here so I don't hijack/go way off topic here. Thanks again for your help!

Hey all, I have a transaction in progress right now for The Gigabyte Windforce 7870 with another OCN member. Really excited to play with this card. All my years building PC's this will be the first non-reference card and I'm really looking forward to the reduced noise, heat, power consumption, etc. + 28nm. I do have some questions for you guys...

1) What's the best way to wipe the Nvidia drivers clean (I've used ATIman to wipe AMD drivers before just never Nvidia) Driversweeper?

2) Are others pleased with their Windforce model card? It seems to be a popular one with its 1100 clock out of the box.

3) What are the standard achievable clocks for an average 7870? Above & below average expectations?

Edit: Why isn't this thread "official"?
I have Ryzen!

I have a GTX580 in the Windforce edition, and it's silent (unless I turn its fans to 60%, then it makes a loud rumble, but the fans never go that high on automatic mode anyway). Pretty good cooling.

Be careful with Driver Sweeper. I used a Guru3D version on one computer, and everything went smoothly, but then on my main computer, I got Driver Sweeper from its main site ( a newer version), and it deleted my Program Files folder contents along with nVidia drivers, as I discovered after a restart... Wasn't a huge deal, but somewhat irritating. It was still useful, because I was getting some artifacts when refreshing pages and scrolling, using my Korean IPS monitor (controlled by GPU), but after running Driver Sweeper, the new Catalyst 12.6 beta works like a charm with my HIS 7870.

1) i do a clean install every time i get a new piece of hard wear because everything is faster with a clean install so i can not answer this one.

2)i am very happy with mine, i use afterburner and make a custom fan setting because it is at 40% by default when it only needs to be at about 20% at idle and keeps very cool even at 1.3 volts

3) i had mine at 1274mhz/1450mhz@ 1.3volts but since i installed catayst 12.6 its can only get to 1265/1450 @ 1.3 volts

So, I know a couple of us were having trouble with crashing during BF3 after long play time or idle.

Net Framework 4 install didn't do anything; rather I already had it installed and was still experiencing crashing (I don't have a degree in computer science/engineering... yet, so I am not even sure how this would help?).

I believe, for whatever reason, there is a problem with the voltage regulation on the 7870. This goes in hand with the wild voltage logs we have witnessed.

Increasing the voltage, even at stock clocks or in some cases (like mine) factory overclocks, seems to give more stability; I have not experienced a single crash in 48 hours since I have been running 1.3 V. I have played BF3 multiple times, all day rolleyes.gif, and the hard-lock black screen has not come up. Fixed? I don't know, but this goes in tow with others experiences as well.

I was starting to get furious; I only run my card at high overclocks for games that really need it. BF3 runs fine on Ultra @ 1080 on stock clocks; but the sporadic crashes at stock clock/voltage were really starting to piss me off.

So, let me know what you guys find with your set ups. I don't necessarily like running a higher voltage 24/7 but I can not complain with the performance.

Question:

Have a Asus 7870 Direct CU II.

Whats the best way to overclock the **** without increasing the voltage to stupid levels.

The voltage is locked to the Core freq.

I could unlink it with asus GPU tweak, but I severly hate that program and dont want it to start on boot each time, but ofc I want to have the clock.

Since the voltage is already at 1.2 default that should be enough to bump up core to 1200-1250 and memory to 5800, but as I said I dont want the voltage to go nuts, want to lock it at 1.2 under load.

Whats the best way?

If your card allready goes up to 1.2V in load it wont go higher by overclocking.

To raise the voltage you need Asus GPU tweak to do so. [or any other software that can do so]
An overclock alone wont make your voltage rise.

So just overclock your card till you find the max with your stock voltage.

If 1.2V is enough to reach 1200-1250mhz can only be found out by trying.
Not all cards clock the same.

Btw, i would feel 100% safe with a voltage of 1.25V.
I would even feel safe with 1.3V if temperature's are really low.
Thats just my personal opinion though, nothing is "truly" safe when you overclocking.
