Its been nearly 6 months, I don't think they would let me exchange it. But I'll give it a go.

Hey, I've noticed with driver 12.11 beta 11 that it does not drop clocks down to idle automatically even with Powerplay bypassed and proper profiles configured in Afterburner. Keep that in mind if you notice your card/s not cooling off after a game.

Btw, 12.11 beta 7 downclocks just fine.

I'm on 12.8 and it almost never clocks below multi-monitor clocks. Wanna fix it, but I'm kinda partial to this driver set. Pretty much the only ones that work well in everything else.

For some reason i can't almost overclock my Sapphire Dual-X 7970 Core from 925.

The VDDC always stay at 0.975 or something even if i am upping it on sapphire Trixx 4.4b mod.

Now if i sapphire Trixx mod after computer restart and clicking reset, it changes the vddc in trixx from 1025 to 1175 like it meant for other card the Ghz edition.

But still if i go to 970 or more it just TDR non stop after couple min.

Anyone knows why the Vddc doesn't go up ?

The memory voltage goes up and oc great, from 1350 - 1520 steady with default voltage 1.500

The guide is predicated on your card being voltage unlocked. If you followed the guide, and still cannot get voltage control then you would have to investigate your bios because apparently Sapphire have used a locked bios on some of their cards.

I am anxious to get home and try Trixx 4.4.0b which i have never seen before. on my sapphire, it is a newer revison and seems to be GPU-voltage locked. i can adjust the memory voltage thru MSI AB though. i can force constant voltage, but thats not ideal....
