Want to replace my current two 7950's - Page 2

post #11 of 17
If you're going to OC, and if you want reference design PCB (PLus an extra power phase) go for the VTX3D 7950 X-Edition, great overclocker and you can add waterblocks in future if you want since its reference board.

I got two of those but the 7970's, and they're great, no boost, you can OC as much as you want. smile.gif

then avoid the windforce. it is locked. go with what Kcuestag pointed out if you can find one locally.

edit: that msi you linked, i believe, has voltage control and should overclock. check out the ocn market as well.

The VTX3D sells all around Europe, if you can't find it, I believe the MSI has voltage control too.

They're locked now, but they weren't when they were first shipped.

Maybe if he found a card that had the voltage unlocked guaranteed then that would be the best choice, otherwise the MSi or that other Sapphire card would be the best.

Any other suggestions? I pretty much want a stable OC. I was thinking of switching to single 780
