No.

A 7970 can and does use over 300 watts.





Either way, OP is fine with his CX600.

Thread Starter 
Thanks for all the replies. The card seems to be running fine now. I tried out Metro 2033 and didn't have any crashes. I am, however, experiencing some screen tearing and slow loading textures.

Also, the 42" that I use to play on now has a 2" black border around it. Can anyone well versed with CCC point me to where I can fix this? biggrin.gif

for another reference: with my i5-3570K OC'd to 4.7GHz and 7970 OC'd to the max, my kill-a-watt shows 480W max at the wall under full load

you might need to enable overscan and adjust the slider bar as necessary in CCC

my digital flat panels-> scaling options (leave box unchecked but adjust slider)

Try CCC > My Digital Panels > Scaling options and adjust overscan.

By the way enjoy the card.

learn to read, TOTAL system power

No need to be a jerk, it's clear that I can read, I think... I simply didn't bother to read well enough before posting those pics because I have read that a 7970 can pull 300W. Keep reading and educate yourself.

I'm still right, the 7970 can pull 300W.



"The architecture hasn’t changed, and the AMD reference card looks nearly identical, right down to the display connectors and fan. However, PowerTune Boost, the higher core clock speed, and the faster memory does come at a cost—while idle power is actually a little better than the original, at 120W (versus 124W for the first Radeon HD 7970), full load power is a whopping 384W, over 18 percent higher than the 324W maximum power draw on the original HD 7970. The GTX is more power-efficient than either card, at 119W idle and 318W under load. Note that the HD 7970 GHz Edition still uses the same power connectors as the first 7970—one 8-pin PCIe power connector and one 6-pin connector. The new AMD progeny is the same 11-inch length as the original; both are a half-inch longer than the GTX 680."


For future reference, you should use Google before calling somebody out and being mean.

I used those pics because I knew I read 300W somewhere, and I did. On average, a 7970 won't use nearly that - but you have to account for a worst case scenario when buying a PSU. smile.gif

Here's four 7970s, drawing 200w each.

So this is impossible and I Photo-shopped it, right?

And I made up the following:

"The architecture hasn’t changed, and the AMD reference card looks nearly identical, right down to the display connectors and fan. However, PowerTune Boost, the higher core clock speed, and the faster memory does come at a cost—while idle power is actually a little better than the original, at 120W (versus 124W for the first Radeon HD 7970), full load power is a whopping 384W, over 18 percent higher than the 324W maximum power draw on the original HD 7970.

The new AMD progeny is the same 11-inch length as the original; both are a half-inch longer than the GTX 680."

Right?

Crossfire doesn't scale very well, there's no way all three cards are pulling 100% in your pic so it's no wonder you're only pulling ~200W each.
