Which test(s) are you referring to? Yep kept the 3960x at a modest 4.5 GHz as not many run theirs rock stable daily at 5ghz.

of course not. but i don't have a 3960. i beat them with a good oc but not my best. so, for $330 price point that i bought last april - i'd say it is a good deal.

It has been a long time well known fact that the difference per clock between 7950 & 7970 range between 0-6% depending on the game.
I had a golden GTX 670 before that can do 1360/7408 I switched to a 7950, and the 7950 can easily spank it in most newer & demanding games.
My 7950 is not even that great.
Thats including Metro 2033, Sleeping Dogs, Crysis Warhead & Skyrim with 8x AA.
There are guys here with 7950s well over 1250+ MHz beating the max OC of some dud 7970s and GTX 680s.

mine is not the greatest oc'er. my asic speaks for itself - 56%. i play my games at stock and have to oc my i7 to keep up with it. others flash their bios to achieve even higher clocks that are crazy.

IIRC you have the Gigabyte 7950 WF?
At stock 900 MHz it is as fast as my GTX 670 on stock (Boost at 1228 MHz out of the box, which is about as fast as a stock GTX 680). But when both are overclocked the 7950 is faster for the most part, only in a few Nvidia optimized games the 670 can keep up and in Heaven Benchmark.

yes, there is a new bios to boost it to 1000. not needed because this thing can oc to 1100 easy. the memory can get crazy all the way up to 1750.
