GPUZ is just like the others for me. The GPU is the only temperature on the list of sensors.

may try this bios. thanks.

I tried this BIOS before on my 7950 (shipped with F42 BIOS) and it bricked the card for me, I reflashed the bricked BIOS with the original F42 again and the card works fine. So if you have a card with F2 or F42/ F43 BIOSes I don't recommend flashing to this 7970 F62 BIOS.

You are scrolling down right? VRM temps are on the very bottom of the list. Not saying youre an idiot or anything, but you might not have noticed the scroll bar.

You do realize not all cards show the VRM temps, right?

Yes.
Ive also helped enough people on these forums that I know that people can overlook something as seemingly obvious as a scroll bar. Im not being offensive, the guy might take it as that, but its not.

I just picked up one of these cards and it looks like the voltage is locked on it. Does anyone now if it can be flashed with a different bios that will unlock this or is it something different with the hardware where some cards were unlocked and others weren't? It looks like it is currently running the F43 bios.

For the 7950WF3 Boost Cards (1000 core stock) -

In MSI Afterburner, if it's voltage locked (Latest 7950WF3 are bios Voltage Locked) the volts will remain at 1.25 under load no matter what you change the slider to.

Both my 7950WF3's were bios volt locked, was stuck at a pure 1.25v unload load for any core setting.

Flash the Bios (They both came with FZ1 or something) to F43 and the voltage can be adjusted and actually takes effect.

Certainly doesn't take 1.25v for 1100 core, both cards running 1100 at 1.150v now.

Flashing down to F43 will remove boost, put you at 1.094v load for 900 core stock, adjust from there.

BEWARE - If your WF3 comes with FZ0 bios, flashing it won't do anything, the cards that come with them bios by default are hardware voltage locked.

Haha! No offense taken.
I checked, and there is no scrolling.
Here is a pic of the sensor tab in CPUZ:
