Help me overclock what looks to be a golden chip! HD 7950 :D

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I just got my EK waterblock for my 7950 installed and I already started OC'ing it. It ran 1100 mhz core and 1575 on stock cooler, and it seems like its stable at 1250 core and 1650 mhz, however if I change the value in MSI after I already changed it once, it seems like it goes back to stock fps while im benching, even though it reads in GPU - Z that its running, and in heaven as well. What's up with MSI afterburner?

Thanks guys!

I was having a lot of random weirdness with afterburner right after I bought my 7950 but a re-install fixed it.

Sounds good, I'll give that a go. Do you know if a certain version of MSI plays well with the 7950? I know thats the case for some cards

The memory can go MUCH higher than that. Seen the memory hit 1700+

Had the same problems with AB and trixx after a rather large OC on my 7970 and a round of Valley. Reinstall fixed the problem as well.

I've gotten the chip so far at 1255core and 1655 mem. If I go above that when testing I see these extremely small artifacts. I had to stare at the screen to notice them
