If anything, vsync would reduce temperatures over vsync disabled. It works fine with vsync disabled.
Let me make it clear for you. You modified the cooling setup of the cards. It's not just about how the cards were cooled.

There are two exhaust fans at the front. That means they are in front of the cards. kookoo.gif

My friend had a similar issue that I helped him fix. Windows automatically installed 12.8 drivers when he plugged in his cards, but he installed 12.10 software. He uses HD 6870 crossfire and 3 1920x1080 monitors.

Perhaps Windows installed drivers without your knowledge.

Here's what I suggest:
Uninstall your current drivers through Windows.
Reboot into Safe Mode (no networking) and use Driver Sweeper to try to pick up any remains of AMD drivers.
Boot your computer with only 1 HD 7970 in and install your drivers.
Shutdown and boot with both cards installed, crossfire bridge attached.
Restart your computer and try running a game in Eyefinity.

A full cover waterblock cools both core and the memory. Dont make sense what you post here.

It's not a cooling problem. The only problems that I know tend to result from a bad cooler installation are temps that are too high, which cause errors or shutdowns, or too much mounting pressure, which causes artifacts; tearing won't be caused by either.

Have you tried setting the frame limit to 15 FPS above your max refresh rate? That's what I do in counter strike, and it gets rid of a lot of tearing.

Yeah, frame limiters don't really change the tearing, they just change how much the lines dance around.

Wow, I can't believe I need to explain this. But oh well... Does the card only consists of just a gpu and memory?
This is why I'm not making any sense to some of you. GPU temps are not the end all be all.

Look, man. I have a backplate to dissipate heat on the back of the cards. I have a full cover block on the front. There is airflow on them, they are sitting directly behind 140mm fans.
I really don't know what more you want.
