7970 OC Issues How to unlock overclocking on 7970s (Click to show)
Managed to enable voltage control and proper clock reading. I haven't stayed up with the 7970 overclocking wise because I have been on air, and just needed time to put on blocks. Of course, I was surprised to see almost no access to any overclocking despite trying the usual tricks working. This should get you on the right track for setting up the 7970 for overclocking.

Apparently there is an easy way to get it going:

And then using the stock profile for 2D clocks, and the overclocked one for 3D clocks. Ever since doing that...I have had ZERO issues.

If you are stuck and still can't get it to work, follow the link below.

Thank you for your help with this.

Other info: Other info (Click to show)
Reason for the addition of the RESTRICTED benchmarks is to let people on air cooling or maybe just quad-cores still compete with their video cards too.

Any submission not following either the rules or not including all the information like the submission example will not be included.

AMD users may need to run one extra run of the benchmark showing Tessellation On/Off in drivers to help prevent biased looking results. Further results can be called into question by any user, and other users may request benchmarks repeated based upon requests as well. I.E. Please re-run with 50% tessellation for example. Its only fair, since essentially we can turn of Tessellation which can seriously cause an unfair advantage.

I am a bit up for democracy on the settings for 3DMark11.

Water / AIR / Extremes will all be separated too.

I am also considering other resolutions as well, afterall, 3DMark11 P isn't 1920x1080.

I had a suggestion, it means more work for me, however, I think its a cool way of doing things.

We have limit imposed benchmarks - Restriction / Competition Style Benchmarks
CPUs around 4.4GHz (so that older i7s can partake)
Possible Core Count / HT Off?
Physx Off (nVidia) / Tessellation On (AMD)


We have balls the wall benchmarks - Pure Speed
Almost anything goes here, CPUs 4.4GHz +,
Physx On (nVidia) / Tessellation Adjustable (must still be on) (AMD)

What do you guys think? Very open to suggestions, I won't be thread dictator, unless its dealing with recording submissions.
