  1. Postimage.org FTW And their app is very useful as well.... Sent from my SM-N9005 using Tapatalk
  2. Yep, seems like 780m is really $#@£€! Up card, maybe 870m gtx will work in the near future but since using NVidia card prevents R2 users from running dual then we are limited to AMD GPUs. Since I got crossfire and I witnessed the performance jump....going back to single GPU configuration would be like walking without 1 leg... I was thinking about getting m18x R2 but I compared their screens side by side and the difference is....very substantial. So no. Sent from my SM-N9005 using Tapatalk
  3. Yes I also experienced this on my own skin. Sent from my SM-N9005 using Tapatalk
  4. Well, you don't have to do that at all. What i done is I soldered all the cables onto the Jack, then allign the jack inside so i could see where to make a hole, then drill the hole, allign the jack in it, and use a strong Two Part Resin Epoxy Glue
  5. In @Nospheratu guide you have clearly shown 2 types of psu's. One of them have a chip in a TO-92 (Delta psu)package and I would say this chip is easier to work with than a SOT-23 package chip. However situation changes if you obtain a separate pcb to install SOT-23 chip on it. Then the SOT-23 is easier. Sent from my SM-N9005 using Tapatalk
  6. standard No OC on cards And small 900/1200
  7. i am now ! i have already removed the ferrite ring !
  8. Hi Slv7, please could you take a look at this 8970m vbios if time allows. WOuld that be possible to reduce 3D voltage on it please ? I heard in 3D it is running at 1.025 and 0.975 would be nice to reduce power draw in R2. Thanks as usual ! HD8970 vbios gpuz.zip
  9. it will not hurt to put a thermal paste on it, but i would get 0.5mm thermal pads. IC diamond is fairly expensive, so i would save it for CPU DIE and GPU DIE only.
  10. Very frustrating this is..... I did not buy that card to beat some kind of record you know, or to increase the performance, which is already very good with my 7970m overclocking like CRAZY on stock voltage. AMD Radeon HD 7970M video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-950 Processor,Alienware 014M8C I bought it, strictly, just to show how awesome R2 is, and to encourage R2 users to upgrade their machines. If it happens that because nVidia screwed up the vBios and because of this i failed, than i accept the fact, i take slap onto my face, and throw another glove towards 8xx series card. So far, it has been loads of fun for me to experiment, loads of frustration as well, but let's not be thrown away, 8 series cards are already on the design boards. Till then 7970M is more than enough..... Selling the 780m soon if we will not witness any Ice Braking News, since the card is fully working, others may find it more useful than me........lucky you R3/R4 users..... Thank you Again for loads of support guys, it is pleasure to be a part of such an awesome community
  11. 1mm in most cases will be fine
  12. cpu +150mV (then after first shut down tried +75mV) 25 or 26 FID 5% BLCK TDP 95/82 gpu 1020/1450 voltage at stock 1.05V All tests passed ok, but when Combined test starts...... laptop shuts down, blue LED on the end of cable turns off, i have to plug off PSU, wait 30 seconds, and reconnect - and all is fine again i know, that is some crazy @W$^ going on
  13. Yep, AMD Radeon HD 7970M video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-950 Processor,Alienware 014M8C 200 points does not really matter, unless you are trying to beat somebody on 1st place in the world by 20 points. So, i went to BIOS bumped +150mv 26 all cores, 5% BLCK, and power brick switched off during Combined Test in 3dMark 11, that was at 1020/1450 GPU clocks. Any other attempt resulted in sw-off. assuming power draw of 7970m @1020/1450 + XM "5% "25 or 26 is more than 240 Watts...... How the hell you can run XF ?...you must be in the EDGE
