running catalyst 13.3 beta

hesho what are your temps, fan speed, power limit and clocks at?

oats2012 My understanding is the power limit will increase or decrease the amount of watts available to the card.

when I decrease the power limit to 0 my card throttles bad at a milder OC, runs fine at +20 and throttles again not as bad at +8 here is a screenie:

So I flashed 028 bios, and now after +20 and 1000 core, I had my first stable run in Heaven. But my temp hovered @ around 75 with fan speed of 55(using a fan graph in AB).

BTW, what are your temps like @ 1200/1500?

you sure you definately have the newest beta msi ab?

I havent run heaven or things like that so it may not be totally stable biggrin.gif but it runs far cry 3, bioshock infinite, and BF3 all at full crank with no dropping that i see in fps or clock. so......im gonna just be content and not get greedy getting picky on if the benchmark utilities recognize it lol.

It depends with ive seen it hit 82C but with a more agreesive fan profile and my fans all cranked it tends to be 76C. on stock it runs at 62C...

tangent:

so I'd like to do the cooling mod to get it low and save my hearing lol.....only negative about this card is that the cooling is far inferior to my old HIS 6950 frown.gif but ill deal with it considering the perfomance boost it was with two great games and once i sell my 6950 ill be sitting pretty and wait till 8000 comes out and move this bad boy to a lan rig or htpc or something biggrin.gifthumb.gif

I have read though most of this thread.
Does anyone have a listing for the Bios's?
Like a list of all of them from each vendor?

i may be mistaken but i think the bios are the same between the vendors but if you go to the link for flashing that was listed somewhere in here or on ocn its got a link to tech powerup or tomshardware with a bios search engine of graphics and you just pick one and then download and go throught the flash steps in the thread. I tried it on a 6950 i bought off ebay, pretty easy (didnt work bc it was a bad card but the flash worked well, no hiccups)

ok thanks, wasn't sure if it was in the list or not yet.
I've tried bios 32 that was sitting around in here, it seemed to work ok, but i dunno gonna go back to 28 and try a few things.

EDIT:
Ok running a few tests.
It appears, I can't overclock my memory really at all, and the cards are semi stable at 1200 Mhz with the 32 bios.
However, I'm running Heaven 4.0 right now at extreme tessillation with the 28 bios, and i'm seeing some interesting stuff.

1080p full screen max everything Heaven 4.0 Runs

1.) Cares are stable at 1200 core and 1550 memory.
2.) My GPU1 is around 85% - 99% usage however my GPU2 seems to be going between 67% and 99% its really odd, its jumping back and forth I wish I could fix this issue.

Why can't I get Afterburner to show both my GPU's clockspeeds? I can only get both useages, and GPU 1 clockspeed/memory.

My Score at max everything 1080p and extreme tessilation was 1411 with min fps of 19 and max of 127.9.
FPS average 56.

MAX GPU Temp 65C (But, this is prob low compared to others, my PC is sacrificing being extremely loud, for good air cooling lol And I run fans at 100% on both my cards.)

As you can see, the 2nd gpu..is just like...fluxuating so much.
Also, why isn't the GPU1 being fully used?
I have a core i7 3770k as the cpu, so id hope its not limiting it.

Hi guys,

I've just jump ship on this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131484 due to the recent sale, and also to replace my old EVga GTS 450. I haven't receive my new GPU yet, but I have several questions regarding this card.

I heard that this card is very power hungry, and I was wondering if my current system can handle it and that my component won't be a bottle neck.

Processor: Intel i5-3570k
Mobo: Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H with F7 Bios
Memory: 4 X 8GB 12800 DDR3 Crucial Extreme RAM (don't remember the actual name)
PSU: Corsair 520HX
HDD: 2x 320GB in raid 0, 1x 2TB, 1x 750GB

Do you guys think my current PSU will be able to handle the 7870 Tahiti Le? Also, I heard that the card doens't work well with the Gigabyte Z77 series Bios, so should I upgrade my Bios too?
Death to SONY!

I have the same card you just got and used to have the same psu. Depends how old it is + you're using 32GB ram. The 520HX is a good psu with 40amps on the 12v.
post #228 of 5223
That's good to hear that the Corsaid 520HX can handle Tahiti Le, all that's left is whether I have to upgrade my bios on my motherboard or not. I'm not familiar with the bios upgrade methods, and I don't want to brick it. Only one upgrade component every couple of months!!!redface.gif

Can u guys tell me what voltage do u use to get 1200 on core, or maybe u use only power limit?
I got BIOS 0.30 and i can only make stable 1160 on core :/

I can get the core clock to 1200MHz easily without upping the voltage. It all depends on luck I guess.
