7970 Core clock stability

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a reference HIS 7970 but i cant figure out why my memory clock is so much more stable and overclock-able than my core clock. Im able to overclock my memory to 1825mHz and my core clock to only 1150mHz before it crashes (All this at 1.25mV temp stays under 60). Its just a little odd considering people are putting up 1150 easily on stock voltage

At stock voltage my max stable core clock is about 1068mhz

I dont really want to bump my voltage up too much more, i was also thinking of flashing the GHz Bios

it's luck of the draw really. You don't see all the people complaining who can't even reach 1100.
They are just happy with what they got
