A good Radeon HD 7950 that's not voltage locked? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
The new 7970 by Msi has unlocked voltage and is pretty good...specially nice cause of the video outs it has.

Ehh, I had bad luck with mine. Loud and hot. Terrible OC, couldnt even touch core clock really. Atleast 1 or 2 others had the same. But a couple had really good performance too. Lottery for sure

I'm talking latest batch...7950s specially.
WF3 cooler is way better but voltage is locked.
Asus DcuII are hit and miss, HIS are decent overall but can't speak for their support. Same for Sapphire, lots of different variations of the same part names, though lately the 4L has been solid for wc'd rigs.

seriously contemplating a pair of the HIS 7950's. the ones with the blower fans so they dont bleed as much heat all over each other

Loving that review. I cant seem to find the turbo versions anywhere though. Is it a big difference?


edit: Weird they gave it a "meh" but only real drawback was the price. The normal versions are $289 right now so seems like a great value for 2 of them

Yup, it's an older review...I have the X2 Turbo one and it's real solid.
Can't go over 1200mhz core though, and 1700mhz mem with 1.225 and 1.65v respectively.
Don't like super noisy fan for daily use, so my normal clocks are 1150mhz/1675mhz with lower volts, and consumption.
