It just started doing this tbd other day, the men was coming down in 2d now it stays exactly where i set it. And when the mem doesn't come down, the core won't go all the way down. Used to sit at either 300/150 or 800/500. Now it runs at 800/1250 until i go back and clock out down when I'm done gaming. The big problem with this is with stiff running higher, its been wanting to idle in the high 40s. As far a cooling while I'm gaming it does great.run it at 1175/1400@1.25 after droop its right at 1.15v. Runs about 62° on the core and vrams r high 60s low 70s, its just idling around 47 i don't like.....

I redid my drivers, software....today i even formatted my drive and started all over thinking maybe ether was something in the system keeping it in 3d... What could it be? Could it be the card itself??? Out sound like something in the bios screwy? I got new (same version) bios off the Web and r e-flashed it...same thing. Boost, no boost, trixx, ab, ccc, the memory won't come down......AAAGGGHHHH!!!!

I ran into this problem too, how many monitors are you using? what is your refresh rate? it will keep a higher mem clock if you are a) using more than one monitor or b) have a refresh over 120hz.....

Its not voltage locked but this took me a week to figure out so.

1). Make sure your boost button is off

2) I used the Trixx software and it worked great. I tried using Afterburner/ Catalyst Overdrive but they did not help me with my Vapor X card.

3) Make sure overdrive is turned off in Catalyst Over Drive.

4) Make sure on Trixx you have constant voltage and disable ULPS

5) Play around and test your numbers.

This is what I achieved on an awesome stock card:

lol... youve searched vapor x and start posting? lol... 1st gen vapor x 7950 cards are i believe v locked... thats the one with 6 and 8 pin... new ones with dual 8 pins theyre not, even boost vbios... only problem with boost now is the throttling issue... which it downclocked itself to 850... whatever settings you do... its a known issue and never care to fix it...

lol nah well sorta. I typed in Vapor X in originally to see what other people were getting as far as their numbers and voltages. Most of the threads I read it was people bashing the Vapor X so I wanted to share my good experience with them to let them know the Saphire cards are pretty respectable.

I have V1 Vapor-X and its not locked. As long as I use force constant voltage.
