    Man amd has gone no where with cf... pitty

    I dont mind loseing cf when i push it too far or something but its just rediclous to have the os lose a card at will.

    With the core I read that 1.25v is safe for 24/7 use with good cooling.
    What about the memory voltage? Is 1.700v safe for 24/7 use?
    Do the memory chips get good cooling with the stock cooler of the reference boards, to run at 1700mv 24/7?

    Wih my card it is voltage locked which is a shame because the temps are excellent.

    So I am only able to get around 1170-1180 - I don't mess with the memory as it is already clocked high and has little effect anyway.

    My experience, well, coming from the Nvidia 600 series, I have only tried one set of drivers from ATI atm and I am on my second set as of yesterday, if i was pushed to comment now, I would say the overall experience is far more stable on Nvidia, however it really is early days yet and I will not be drawing any conclusions for a GOOD while.

    Overall I am happy with my 7970 although I keep getting a tiny stutter which I cannot figure out.

    It seems to happen on AL my games.

    I did not get this with my 680.
