been trying to test these as much as possible but having very limited time to being forced to leave the cards running overnight.
left it on Heaven 3.0 rolling and came back early morning (approx 8 hours of running) to which the cards were at approx 74 degress both at 100% usage. (running 7560x1600 with the standard options already in)
with 13.12 drivers i seem to notice that every now and then after running something for prolong time - once i quit and exit the application/game the PC hardlocks and im forced to reset. is the issue driver related?
Don't think it was power since it happens at very random times and i cannot consistently replicate the issue.
Running all at stock now for the time being since RMA option only lasts until another day or 2 from the reseller store.
If anyone can recall another person bringing up the issue in thread please point me to which page and i'll have a look, only managed to read about 10 pages so far... thanks in advanced,
Did you try completely remove the drivers using DDU & re-install fresh drivers (13.12)? If you already did, you might want to try it with fresh windows installation before RMA the cards. If the trouble you had with 7970's is similar to the current problem, there might be something else broken.Edited by kizwan - 2/23/14 at 8:12pm
