    only playing at 1920x1200 here chaps. I did buy GTX 670 SLI to try recently, and got almost the same 3dmark scores, despite 7970s overclocked to 1100

    EDIT - Sorry i put a typo on my 3dmark scores

    Icestorm - 168664
    Cloudgate - 33415
    Fire Strke - 12162

    Run them in crossfire - there is no trifire profile for them yet.

    **Edit**
    Sorry, just noticed those are runs for 2x

    She could definately do more with a few tweaks.
    Here is mine also running 2 cards with Cpu @ 4.7 and ram 2200 on the 13.2 release. Havnent tried 13.2 beta 7 actually.

    Ive drawn over a KW from the wall from mine set to crossfire. bear in mind thats wall draw, so multiply that number by your PSU efficiency at that point to get a PSU output figure.

    As for the meter, not sure whats "uberfunny" about it?

    Couldn't be more happy with mine! Running 3840X1024 desktop and gaming is sick.

    Awesome value for the performance and just getting better as drivers mature :)

    My MSI 7950 twinfrozr 3 is weird. In idle it has 30 degress and 30% fan speed. However when im gaming fans something goes ballistic. I mean really loud noise like its running on 80% or more.

    Is this normal for that GPU? Im using 13.2 beta 7.

    I've been told that the twinfrozr 7950 card runs pretty hot, which leads to higher fan rpm.

    My 7970 Lightning TF4 does the same. The MSI's are a little bit hotter and louder than Asus DCu ( I had one, cool card very quiet but locked voltage).

    The TwinFrozr III cooler works out really well with the R7950. The temperatures are pretty impressive at roughly 60 Degrees C under full load. Whist doing that the card remains virtually inaudible, which is a huge plus as well.

    What it says in review conclusion. Its funny because mine is very audible. Like a hower at the moments...

    I see your case is pretty small. how's the airflow? how many fans do you have in it? I'm thinking hilbert uses test benches for his reviews. but if you only have a few fans in your case, you'll hear the gpu fan over them easier than if you had 6-8 fans. more case fans will make your case louder and cooler, meaning your gpu will run cooler, hence lower revs and harder to hear it over 8 fans. 2 fans will run the case hotter, also the gpu fan will easily be audible over the 2 fans.

    MSI TF3 7950 is hot and loud, I can confirm that. I have Coolermaster Storm Trooper full tower case with 8 fans, two of them blowing directly over the gpus from side panel. Even though the case fans are running at 100% and are loud, the gpu fans easily overtake them if I fire up a gpu intensive game.
