post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Anyone know how to help me with this, perfer to get my max without having to mess with voltages. Should I just use the boost or can I go a little higher than it and not worry about over doing it?

I've upgraded some parts and this is my setup right now.

CPU - i5 2500k @ 4.3ghz | CPU Cooler - Hyper 212+ | Motherboard - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 | GPU - ASUS MATRIX 7970 GHZ Edition | SSD - Samsung 840 128 GB SATA | RAM - 16GB Kingston Hyper X | PSU - Power and Coolir MK III 600W | Case - Thermaltake Element V Black Edition Steel Full Tower | Monitor - Samsung Black Lit LED 22" | Keyboard - Corsair Vengeance K90 | Mouse - Mionix Naos 5000 |

If you don't want to mess with voltage overclock in AMD CCC . Max out the power control to +20% in AMD Overdrive in performance tab in AMD CCC. this card should easily hit the max 1.2 Ghz core GPU clock allowed in AMD CCC. If you want to go higher use the following method

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/10/16/asus_matrix_hd_7970_platinum_video_card_review/

"We had but three steps to go through to overclock. First, we pushed the button on the side of the card that ramps the fan speed up to 100% at all times. Then we used the TweakIT buttons by pressing the "plus" voltage button on the edge of the video card to raise the voltage as high as it would go. Then we loaded up GPU Tweak and overclocked the GPU frequency and memory until we found our highest stable overclock. It was easy to setup, but did take some time to nail down the stable frequency."

For stability testing the overclock use Heaven 3.0, 3D Mark 11, BF3, Crysis 2.

Thanks will do the first suggestions, I know it can go higher but that is really fast just at that 1200!

Will try this out thank you very kindly.

I am so proud, besides my former GTX 570 which I got for free because a cousin of mine upgraded to a GTX 680 SC Signature 2 and gave me his, and now I am hoping this card will last me atleast a good solid 2 years.
