    GPU Overclocking Tools

    i used the evga ages ago on my gtx 560.. didnt like it.. i prefered nvidia inspector.. much better and my fave for nvidia chipsets.. also used that on for my 580 sli setup.. too bad they dont make a AMD/ATi equiv..

    The Official 'i Just Bought...' Thread

    I officially just bought a Samsung AS850 24" (for my photography work), SSD Vertex 4 (so damn fast!), Plantronics 780 gamer headset (better than my previous cacharias from razer), and an insane 7970 from asus.. reference. but clocked at 1125/1575 (max sliders) without touching voltages.. Pretty happy with everything, and stoked with the vid card. its not far off my old gtx580 overclocked SLi setup.. and its just one card hahahah insane.. Oh and a 70-200mm f2.8 IS L MKii lens and a 135mm f2 L lens, bike tatt on my back.. santa was really nice this year hahaha

    ASUS HD 7970 DirectCU II Reviewed

    i totally agree.. i game with those settings everyday for hours.. and i mean hours.. im on holidays from my real busy tradie life so getting a good 8hrs in dayz or bf3 isnt uncommon hahah well earned rest! i was surprised how easily it overclocked the extra 200mhz without any increase in voltages or loss of stability.. hasnt crashed once or even gone past 80c with the stock fan profiles.. i made my own profile coz i dont like to take risks at it sits around the 55-60c mark with fans hovering around 50% ive seen that i gotta use the older 12.8 drivers to have unlocked sliders but it runs great as is so i see no point going back just to push more.. maybe when we have our next oc comp to enter i will.. by then ill be sporting an intel system as well as this 3 year old @ 4ghz+ 1055t has starting taking its toll.. poor bugger.. hahah oh and my card is just the reference asus card lol

    ASUS HD 7970 DirectCU II Reviewed

    1134mhz with 1.263v? wth!? ive reached the limit on the slider at 1125/1575 and i didnt touch the voltages at all lol still a 1.112 wish i knew how to "unlock" the sliders so i could tap 1200 on the ass.. easy done for this card id say

    New video card for 2560x1440 display

    7970 (same price as 670) is like having a 680 with a slight overclock.. id go for a 7950 3gb min for that res.. who wants to be limited by vram.. seriously.. the more the merrier and cheaper than nvidia and just as powerful in some cases and more in others..
