OC HeadRoom With High End Gpu's - Page 2

Thread Starter 
Just it the card is there if they give you the right bios. Yea that guy telling you 1200 / 1600 with stock voltage is blowing serious smoke up your a$$. The one I tried lucky if it made 1050 / 1250 (stable) on stock voltage. Thats serious bull, What I experienced you may as well just leave the whole 79xx series on air if, you don't bios mod. And get some voltage. Don't get me wrong you may get it work, for one benchmark, but if you run bench mark twice, or but soon as you click into something else, the card falls on its face. Have to do a complete restart. If you can get a bios for your card, thats even worse than gambling with silicon. Yea one chip better than another, not by a margin like that, some one was puffing the crack pipe. The bios is where the gamble its at, want your card to be stable sure just use a different bios, and then go buy another gpu cause you just killed your card. I can handle the silicon gamble by a mhz or 2 the other **** has to go.

i lied. it was 1200/1575. not sure of the actual locked voltage but i believe when it boosts the voltage goes to 1.25v. mine does 1200 using 1.20v (0.86v stock/62% ASIC), so it is possible.

like i said it is a sort of a lottery. you didn't win. that's all.

edit: my intel rig has both cpu and gpu watered. it only has 3 fans total. my pc is an arms length away and i can hear the pump not the fans made by cougar.

It is not that unbelievable. Some cards come with a stock voltage as high as 1250mV. Some can easily do 1200 MHz 24/7 at that voltage, very golden ones can do 1250 MHz.
I am not very lucky with my card too. It is a bit of a dud honestly. Can't even do 1000 MHz @ 1094mV. It requires 1150mV to do 1000 MHz and some guys can do 1150 MHz at that voltage.
I tried 1150 MHz @ 1250mV with no luck, it flickers in demanding games such as Crysis series & Skyrim + ENB. Tried 1264mV and was 100% stable @ 1150 MHz, max this card can do @ 1300mV is 1180 MHz. , Tahiti voltage variation is ridiculous.
But the memory is a bit decent though, not great but decent. can do 1600 MHz @ 1500mV, but anything higher than 1675 MHz at that voltage and it hangs the whole PC.

You are temp limit.
Also you dont care about the stock voltage. You care about asic and how they scale with the volts. I have 6 7970 close to 90% asic quality and they can do 1200-1250 with the stock voltage which is 1.07.But they dont scale at all with the volts.After 1.25v i trip the ocp

So I am confused here. I am not spending more than $260. I see on benchmarks, 7950 wh R n overclocked beats the gtx 760. I want the best card for my money and allows me the room to maximize the card.

Please make some recommendations. I have looked at msi 760 and Gigabyte/sapphire/Asus for the 7950.

I have a fx 8350 and Gigabyte fxa990-ud3 version 4.0 with a cm 700v.

I DO 50/50 gaming/media center usage.

Wait for next gen amd cards for price drops

Ok so when prices drop, what 7950 or even 7970 would you guys go with?

Also when are the new cards coming out?
