Gigabyte 7950 Is this a good OC?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure what others are getting but I have a Gigabyte 7950 3gb Windforce. It's one of those that came stock at 1000mhz instead of 900mhz. So it's 1000/1250 stock. It's also voltage locked.

I've been able to get it to 1175/1600

Are these good numbers?

Looks pretty good. I have the same card but can normally run it at about 1230 core (don't like the temps I get in the summer without ac). I can't remember what I ran the memory at off hand. I don't think I got my memory that high though. Hows you voltages and temps?

Also end up running with fans at max to keep the temps in a range I like. Think this is the loudest card I have heard when you crank the fans.

Voltages are locked. So I can't tell. I think it's locked at 1.25v.

Temps stay under 65 on furmark, and hardly any higher than stock when gaming.

Fan speeds only hit maybe 70% max.

I checked, this card is atually voltage locked to only 0.95v. How the hell does it even run with only that little?

That's idle voltage

You sure it's voltage locked. I have the same card and mine is not. What program are you using to overclock?
I have been using MSI Afterburner.

Using MSI Afterburner.

The card is locked. It's the version that came stock at 1000Mhz. It has the model number and everything. But it's voltage locked.

I checked, the load voltage is 1.25V
