I got my 7950 running a decent overclock nice and stable now. Went from 900 core, 1250 memory to 1030 core, 1575 memory. I know these cards can go so much higher, but it would appear I drew a short straw with my chip .

Before:
AMD Radeon HD 7950 video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-3770K Processor,ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. P8Z77-V DELUXE score: X2544 3DMarks

Very Nice! but I have to ask what are your increase in temps now,on stressed full load?

See thats kind of why im disapointed, I have a Gigabyte Windforce 3x card with very descent cooling, especially compared to the reference design. With the fans on 30% and absolutely silent, low 20s idle, mid 50s load. If I could get the card to go higher I could cool it just fine, but the core doesn't want to play ball , people can push their 7950s to the 1200mhz range, sometimes even more, and they out perform reference 7970s.

Yeah,I know what you mean, but my main concern is temps,so when I overclock I try to keep the cards in the same,or close to the same temps as it was before overclocking. And I don't think you can return your card based on the fact that it doesnt overclock as well as the others hehe, But still,that is a respectful oc.

Well yeah. It does have coilwhine, I have considered getting it returned for that reason as it is legitimate, just...difficult. If I asked for my money back, assuming I got it for the original price, I would be like $30 off a 7970 due to price drops. However like I said, RMAs for coilwhine, while possible, are very difficult because it can be hard to replicate well, for example when I run crysis 1, the card sounds like a dying mouse, and yet it is out of the hearing range of some older people...whos to say the guy at the store won't be able to hear it and ill have wasted $30 I dont have shipping it back halfway across the country.

Temps wise its quite good too, stock clocks under load it was still around 50, the temperature increase has been minimal.

Wanted to try something new so I ordered myself a pair of XIGMATEK Dragoon N422 Ram Coolers, first time doing this and I was a bit afraid I would be to rough when I removed the old ram fins on my corsair vengeance ram's but so far it seem to be working, I don't really know how durrable ram sticks are but im glad it all seems to be working

And bought a GTX 560 to replace my old GTX 260 card, and pretty happy about that card temp wise and fan wise, running the fans at 50% and they still make less noise then what the single fan did on the GTX 260

If you removed the factory applied heat spreader you voided your RAM warranty.

Very true but can be used for testing, then use the settings obtained and set them in BIOS or UEFI.

That must have been a darn nice upgrade.. You skipped quite a few generations of GPU improvements in one big jump there!

Ya, but the vengeance heat spreads feels so cheap, and the ram itself was cheap so if somethind would have happen it would not have been the end of the world, and I gotta learn by trying ^^

It feels damn nice, but the 2 fans on that card and the 2 fans I have at the side is bringing in way more dust then the old card so I need to find some dust filters now, so I guess it was good and bad, even overclocked it a bit also and its stable at 1000 core clock and 2300 memory at 1.04 running everything on max in heaven
