AMD 7950 Stock Sapphire, is it even possible to OC?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi!

Just bought an AMD 7950, full name: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 - 11196-00-20G

Most of the tests iv'e seen are using various different brands except for the actual stock one. Well there's one by antech where they simply state "AMD 7950" not sure if that's my card they overclocked.


I realise the cooling on the stock sapphire probably isn't the best one. Thought about buying an aftercooler but i've read some horror stories on how the cooler shorted their GPU!

Since this is a brand new GPU i'mt a little afraid to OC the standard one. Especially when one is to crank up voltage.

Anyone with a similar setup who OC'd and if so how far did you get? How many FPS did you gain? If it's less than 5 then it's not worth it in my opinion.

Thanks for reading thumb.gif

Pretty likely that you won't see more than a 5 fps gain from overclocking your GPU (if that) wink.gif

Wrong...
I get around 15-20% increase @ 1100/1500 over 900/1250. (ie; 50 fps vs 60 fps)
And 25-35% when it is at 800/1250. (ie; 50 fps vs. 67.5 fps)
