Try flashing the BIOS to a 7950. The dual BIOS feature makes sure that the process is bullet proof.

Hi Guys,

 

Cram back reporting on the final OC of my 7850...

 

I'm a bit disappointed on the final clock due to the limited VDDC...I clocked out stable with the following screen shot:

 

 

1260/1345 @ 1.3VDDC w/ 20% PowerTune (Board Power Limit) is a little bit "meh" for me knowing the fact that I have it under water...but...this is as stable at it's going to get...I did get a full bench without hiccups at 1263/1348 @ 1.3VDDC w/ 20% PowerTune and it's very stable but I dialed them down to a good round number...I'm OCD like that. :/

 

So yeah...might pick-up another 7850 fox XFire (CN$154 right now with MIR) and another waterblock...I'll have to consult EK for their FC Link thing for these cards. But that'll happen after I get HotS. :P

 

Cheers guys!

But to answer your question its ver J.O, care to share what that means?

What would you ask for those games? If I could get them for 25 € or maybe one of them for 15?

Is that bone stock, 1.3v I mean? Or did you do a BIOS swap. Also, does your block cool the VRMs, or are they still passively cooled?

do it.. better for gaming than a AMD can take full advantage of the cores you cant as well with a bulldozer

better overclockers too.

BIOS swap from PowerColor to an ASUS one, PowerColor stock bios can only go 1.25v via TriXX.

 

Full-cover blocks do include VRM cooling so everything is cooling via the water block.

Link has my review of the block.

mine is the oc model http://uk.msi.com/product/vga/R7850-Twin-Frozr-2GD5-OC.html

it depends on what it takes for each GPU to hold its default clock, better quality cards are volted lower if they can mange it.

I dont know if you've decided on cpu yet, but this 3570k has been faster or at worst equal to my 7850... sry meant this response to another post and edited...mad.gif

Asus GPU Tweak.

13.2 Beta 5

The "PE" suffix in the MSIU R7850PE stands for "Power Edition". I actually called MSI's chief designer of the MSI GPUs, (can't remember his name because it was several months ago), and I flat out asked him which card was the better one if I want to OC the thing; the Twin Frozer or the PE?

He clearly stated the Power Edition is the card that's meant to take higher clock speeds because it was built with materials that handle higher voltages and temperatures. In fact, it was easy to here how excited he was about it and went on to say that the clock speeds have already beaten a number of 79xx's.

That's straight from the sources mouth and so that's the one I bought, (PE). But as far as the voltage is concerned, I did say that the highest I was ever able to go with the voltages was 1.21 but it's because the OC program, (Tweak, Trixx, Afterburner, etc), wouldn't let me go higher. The card itself can take some pretty high voltages so I'm not sure what your point is.

But what I really need to know is why is there this big warning about not running any CCC version above 12.8? I see you listed that you're running 13.2 Beta but is anyone else doing that? I just don't want to have problems I don't need so I'm trying to find out why that warning was placed on the home page? If it's not true, then why is it still there?

Anyone care to field that?

Well this is my 2nd install of win 8 with this drivers, had issues with 13.1 but they stopped with 13.2

Also to be fair that was written last year mate.. and if your gonna listen to a warning instead of actually reading up on the driver and whats been said about it in the forums i just wouldn't bother trying it, if it didnt just try things for the sake of it or to see how things work to be honest there would be no point in my buying good hardware such as the 7850, and to be completely honest 12.8 is an old driver. granted 12.9/10/11 had issues but they had performance enhancements, give it a go, if it doesnt work just revert? whats the harm in trying?

And with your Power edition remark... of course its gonna overclock better, its a 4th gen card setup, (twin frozr), all companies do a "best" edition for example power color with the PCS+ models. And Just so you know the power editon is also known as the MSI R7850 Twin Frozr IV Power Edition.

Im using 13.2 as well no problems so far and I have been using them since they came out..
