I also dont have idea what suddenly happened, i had 12.8 couple of weeks ago and i started to notice those strange readings, now i had reading that heaven uses more than 1900 MB of Vram, which is impossible.

Hey guys, what programns are you using to up voltage for your GPU and what not? I'm monitoring temps using Vision control center. About to run some benchmarks and see what I get on highest settings. I usually run all my games at everything cranked up as high as it goes, yea I'm one of those guys... Running at 1280x720 res on a 42inch hdtv.

I've got a sapphire 7870 OC edition so I wanna make sure this puppy is being used properly. To be honest I haven't once second guessed if it was running how it should be since I got it.

I have to add that my 7870 also smokes my 6870 in 3dmark 11.
It's showing a real improvement in Benchmarks, but I have not seen any gains at all in games, even worse, in some cases performance has gone down.

It's going to win handily in DX11 games. Get the DX11 patch for Crysis2 and the 7870 should be far superior.

I hate to say it but my 6670 that I use on a 32in TV @ 720p maxes out most of my games. A 7870 at that resolution is way overkill. Shoot for 1080p at least! Although since it is overkill, it wont have any trouble at all keeping up so I imagine your ultra high and smooth framerates are very enjoyable! thumb.gif

I might go back to 12.6 and see if it happens. It might have and I just never noticed. But it does seem like a lot of us are scratching our heads saying "***" lately so maybe its the drivers?

Hey guys.. I've got a single 7850 and I'm currently playing GW2 and I'm not very happy with my fps heh smile.gif

I'm thinking of getting anther 7850. Anybody tried GW2 with 2x7850? I saw 12.8 cap 2 improves GW2 crossfire performance.

Generally I'm prone to notice suttering and I want to avoid it just as much as I wanna stay in the smooth 60fps range. (not talking gw2 wvw ofc). I never fall bellow 30fps if I up all settings to max right now in GW2, including supersample and reflections and stuff.

XFX cards are fine. I have never seen it go above 62C in any game at full load. They are the silent type fans and only when I increase fan speed above 60% am I able to hear them over my H80; with the H80 at idle mind you.

I have a DD BE and I am planning on picking up another DD for crossfire. The only reason I can anticipate temp problems is because of my mATX board. Even then the top card isn't going to increase over 30C and become borderline iffy.

They're the sexiest cards imo (with the exception of EVGA'S FTW 6xx) available and perform great. Support is great and they have a lifetime warranty. You can't beat that.

I am glad to read a good experience with xfx 7870. Yeah it's the sexiest AMD card this series. smile.gif

I've heard the XFX cards aren't great. I have an ASUS 7850, which is kinda related to what you're talking about. It's around an inch or two longer than all the other 7850's, but the stock cooling on it is better than any of the other 7850's, even the Twin Frozr, and stuff like that. It's extremely stable at maximum OC, and my temperatures never go above 65C on this card while playing games such as COD and Skyrim on it. I've yet to try BF3 on it yet though.

I already know xfx cooling is not that great compared to asus, msi, gigabyte. I just want to know by how much. smile.gif

Edit: Just realized you have a 7870. Do these results look okay for an 7850? I had to RMA a previous 7850 due to grey screen issue. Skyrim runs laggy compared to my other card sadsmiley.gif.

I really regret buying a PC now. Nothing but problems with it. I've went through 1 6850 (memory was fecked on it) 2 6950 (the games looked really crappy and jaggy compared to my 6850 so I rma'd) 2 7850 (the sapphire one had a doggy cooler on it) and the asus 7850 gave me a grey screen of death.

I thought it might have been my previous gigabite motherboard, so I replaced it but everything still seems the same. My power supply might be a bit doggy since it produces a whine noise plus some of the components at the back are a bit slanted. I can take a pic if you guys want. I am going to order a new one in the coming week anyway.

Sorry to hear you're having a bad experience. What CPU do you have and have you tried different RAM?
