Yes TriXX change my V i can see it in HWMonitor ! so where is the problem ?
And its verry good cooling on XFX DD i have MAX on OC 77-79c and when im mining it has 83-84c
Mid 80's is hot. My OC'ed 7950 never gets over the mid 60's, and thats with the fans at 50% speed (Although its a sapphire). The problem though is the vregs do not get much air flow. If they run too hot, they will fail prematurely.

How hot does GPU-Z say the VRMs are getting when you test your overclock?

Since you guys are talking about overclocking 7970s and I'll be buying a new PC with one in it soon,I wanted to ask a question.Which is better for overclocking,the MSI Twin Frozer or the Sapphire Vapor-X OC?Apart from that...Do you guys want me to post my 3DMark scores from my laptop with a Core 2 Duo at 2.4GHz and a mighty ATi Radeon HD4650 with a whooping 1GB VRAM?You could have a laugh and I'm gonna cry in my bed while looking at your scores. :p

3D Mark 13 CloudGate = 18579 { 54652, 5613}

3D Mark 13 FireStrike EXTr = 3781 { 4004, 8793 }

3D MarkVantage = 26730 {29832 GPU , 20375 CPU }
Vantage score is kinda low. What clocks were you at
