Gigabyte 7950 (GV-R795WF3-3GD) - voltage locked at CC's "+20%" ? Need to raise more! - Page 2

Mh, this raised the clock bar but I still do not see a single thing that refers to the voltage... :-/

Even with the F43 BIOS there is nothing there. Dammit.

Hmm, well I dunno. I guess it's locked for that card.

Found this CLICKY. Maybe that will help.

Any luck? I'm having this exact same issue. I bought this card about two weeks ago and it's driving me crazy trying to figure it out.

Concerning the link, I disabled iGPU and it didn't help. I'm not sure what "virtu" is that he says he disabled in bios.

Mh, I will leave it now. There is no way to raise voltage above 1.25 for me at the moment.

My current clocks are:
1010
1300

Is that a good OC? Or do I have a bad chip and should conider returning this one and getting a new one?

Also - what is a good, reliable benchmark that I can run in the background while playing with clock speeds? Kombustor and FurMark are the ones I use at the moment.

Pretty bad OC to be honest 1100/1400 is "average"
post #16 of 19
The only way I can get 1100 clock to be stable is to lower the power limit percentage to -10%+. The result is high fps for a few seconds and then they immediately drop off lower than stock settings. Right now I'm at 1065/1450 stable. It holds 58fps on furmark 1080p benchmark.

Yeah dont bother with anything like that. Its not really stable at 1100, then, as its not running 1100 a good chunk of the time.

Probably just a bad clocker. but going from 1060 MHz to 1100 MHz won't net you much fps believe me. it is probably a 3% increase at most which you might not notice during the gameplay anyway.
Also depending on the policy of the place you are going to return, they might not replace the card for you as it is "stable" at stock clocks. and getting a good clocker is highly dependent on the luck of the draw.
I recommend to not use Furmark for testing GPU stability as it is useless and will punish the card with not benefit. Try a demanding game like Crysis 3 or Battlefield 3; as not everything is stable in Furmark is going to be stable in those demanding games.

Well I talked to Gigabyte technical support and they said my bios version (zx0) is unable to be update by me. I have to process an RMA and send it in for them to update it. I think I'll tryto get a replacement from Newegg first.
