Most VR Modules are good to 90+ ^C

Can anyone see a difference between these cards?

Sapphire HD 7870 XT Boost 2GB GDDR5
11199-20-20G

Sapphire HD 7870 2GB GDDR5 XT with boost
11199-20-40G

20G vs 40G? Specs are the same as far as I can see.

Error Correction on VRAM, Reduce your VRAM Clocks.

FWIW, this was my brief 7950/7870XT 3dMarks, I refuse to spend time tweaking to get better scores, so i simply ran them on the fly with other programs running.

Had stuff runningin background and with power saving stuff on, I get crappy scores in 3dmark for physics:
(Stock settings, No OVERCLOCK, Power savers On (for both GPU and CPU)
http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/177907

Secondary System Build,
ASRock Extreme 4 990FX, AMD FX8120 @ Stock settings, Ram is the same, Windows is the same, GPU is a Sapphire 7870 XT (7930):
Power Saving Stuff is also on)
http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/212943

Note: since the CPUs are different, I'd look at the GPU SCores only.

FWIW, this was my brief 7950/7870XT 3dMarks, I refuse to spend time tweaking to get better scores, so i simply ran them on the fly with other programs running.

Had stuff runningin background and with power saving stuff on, I get crappy scores in 3dmark for physics:
(Stock settings, No OVERCLOCK, Power savers On (for both GPU and CPU)
http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/177907

Secondary System Build,
ASRock Extreme 4 990FX, AMD FX8120 @ Stock settings, Ram is the same, Windows is the same, GPU is a Sapphire 7870 XT (7930):
Power Saving Stuff is also on)
http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/212943

Note: since the CPUs are different, I'd look at the GPU SCores only.

Allow me to contribute my experience:

Same system (CPU/MB/RAM/HDDs) different gpu, 7870XT & 7950 .

7870XT @ 1200/1500 (some artifacts on bench, not playable freq) scores: 7139
7950 @ 1150/1500 (artifact free, playable) scores: 8321

I have another question about these cards

What is the reccomended amps? I ordered a PSU that only delivers 30A combined, but I read the the GPU needs 32A?

I can still swap the PSU to one with 33A combined, but tbh I don't really know the importance of missing 2 amps.
