Depends on what reference PCB he wants.

I think he wants the reference HD7970 PCB since this is what this whole thread is about.

True, but didn't want to assume.

I went with the MSI, but there are some reporting that they may have switched the pcb again. Mine arrives tomorrow, we shall see. The HIS will be quieter, but from what I have read, the MSI is fairly quiet in normal operating conditions.

Your card looks like it is built on reference HD7970 PCB. cool.gif




I am not sure how much clearance your VRM#1 had or your vram has to the stock heat sink but if you have a lot of room I think your best bet for a great air heat sink (IF it fits) would be the Swiftech HD7900-HSF for HD7970.

Not sure it will work with stock heat sink.


I have good experience water cooling my HD7950 with a full cover clock and I think full cover block is the best way to go.


You may be able to fabricate one...

Bummer your card didn't come with any heat sink on the VRM #1 or VRAM. IMO these cards benefit from proper cooling on GPU/VRM/VRAM when over clocking.


Are you guys sure VRM 1 is located near the crossfire port, and VRM 2 is located near the power connectors?

you know that's all lies yeah?

look at the second GPU-Z picture that shows the 2048 cores.
The device ID has clearly been photoshopped in, and not even very well at that.

how'd that work out?
