I am using 2x 7950's.

It'll be fine to use 24/7 however lower idles and voltages mean less power consumption and less heat.

If you read the posts above about changing the settings in the nvidia control panel, I'm sure you can do the same with catalyst control center or whatever it is called.

roll back to 200 series drivers. 300 series drivers are buggy as hell on the 500 and 400 series.

I will certainly try this, can you give me the specific version of the driver?

I use 296.10. It seems to not be buggy.
