HD 7950 Stock Voltage at 1.25V?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I noticed that my powercolor HD 7950 was loud during moderate gaming, so I checked the voltage settings, and I realized that when it's under load, it's at 1.25V.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling power up tuner, tried tweaking with the voltage settings in msi afterburner, sapphire trixx, etc but those only seem to be temporary solutions, the voltage goes right back up if I exit out of those programs.

I also tried uninstalling AMD catalyst to no avail. My theory is, when I was trying to overclock and I raised the voltage to 1.25V, it somehow got stuck that that became a default setting?

Thank you in advance.

NVM I got it. It seems like .950v/1.250v is the stock setting for the boost edition hd 7950s. It's a tad high for my liking as the noise becomes too high, but I guess I'll just have to manually adjust.

thats normal on alot of the newer cards that dont have voltage control or boost cards they have voltage set to 1.25 nothing wrong with the card.

if you can get voltage control to work you could run at at 1.175 i bet or mod the bios for less voltage thats a risk if you dont have dual bios tho or a backup card to flash use to flash incase you bork it, my 2 7970s run 1100/1650 on 1.175.

Is voltage peaking at 1.25 V no matter what you set it to?

One of my R7950 behaves this way. Enabling 'Force Constant Voltage' in Afterburner allowed me to adjust voltage

good that you fixed it. if it should ever idle at that voltage make sure powertune and ulps are enabled and "force constant voltages" disabled.
