New to this forum with a brand new Gigabyte 7970 GHz edition, and in need of desprate help!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
HEY!
I just joined this forum, after someone from Toms hardware linked me here..
I went through this forum posts like 3 times: http://www.overclock.net/t/1294856/cant-increase-voltage-gigabyte-7970-windforce-3x-gv-r797oc-3gd
And no matter what I try, nothing works!
I CAN NOT unlock the Voltage slider on MSI AB..
Using 12 beta 11, on the date 12 12 12 'coz that's epic.
Using AB 2.2.3 because that's the version used in the second post, judged by the date.
I did every step, and it didn't work. Then I removed all the ATI drivers, reinstalled both AB and ATI drivers, did everything the second post said, and still, nothing.
Can someone PLEASE put up an up-to-date guide on how to unlock the voltage?
It really annoys me, I am on 60% fan, 65C max and I just can't go past 1150\1580.
Please help <3
Thanks alot! I am going to sleep now, so i am gonna check this thread as soon as i get up. And I bet I will wake up several times at night just to check this tongue.gif
Thanks again!

Tried that Trixx thing. When I start it, I am able to change the voltage, but only down, not up. Cant go past 1256

Also, with the Trixx, it DOES say I am on higher voltage, but I cant overclock a single bit more than I could without the modded Trixx.
***?! I prefer using MSI AB :\ Still cant pass the 1180ish mark

1. Its entirely possible raising the voltage does not grant any additional headroom. Look at the TechPowerup review for the Asus Matrix 7970 for proof of this.

2. The Gigabyte 7970 has been voltage hardlocked for the past two revisions.

Well that sux :\
Do you maybe know, or any of you know, a stable OC for a fan cooled GHz edition Gigabyte 7970? I seem to be only able to run it at stock GHz Gigabyte speed. Any OCing makes the screen jump..

We can't tell you a stable OC. If your card is only stable at stock speeds thats that. Theres nothing really you, or anyone else can do.
Screen jumping with any OC is a widely reported issue. There's loads of threads about it.

Right now, I am working with Power Limit 20, core clock 1175 and mem clock 1620.

This is funny if you can click thru.

What I would do at this point is take off the cooler and write down the numbers on the vrm controller. It is the lone IC at the end of the board right next to the vrms.

That's an average overclock. 1200+ would be good, 1275+ would be amazing.
