What kind of question is this? You can because those are around CCC limits, nothing special. Most 7970s will max CCC no problem.

Well this is the first card I ever used AB on. And I qwas wondering if it was like riva turner where it detected max setting?
And if I don't ask I, then won't know. CCC?

Catalyst Control Center. Overclocking from CCC has max sliders of 1125/1575. You probably haven't enabled unofficial overclocking in AB, which is why the sliders correspond to the CCC sliders.

AB will NOT detect your "max" settings. If you enable unofficial overclocking and push it to 1800/whateverthemaxmemory is, it'll run at that speed and artifact itself to a BSoD.

No, it's a Black Edition Double Dissipation. It runs at 1245/1740 at 1.17 volts.
