Hi,
Just recieved 4 MSI 7900 GTO's and I thought I would give them a quick test with the control panel to see how they faired with 'Detect Optimal' Obviously I'm aware they can be pushed further. I'm at work so I can't do any more with regard to OC at the moment.

Default is Core 650 Memory 660

Card 1 ---- Core 678 Memory 729
Card 2 ---- Core 691 Memory 756
Card 3 ---- Core 672 Memory 717
Card 4 ---- Core 692 Memory 757

I'm having the best 2 to play with SLI on my Badaxe tonight.

HI there

Get them SLi'd m8 !!

We are selling these things in bucket loads, absolutely cracking card and no reports of any issues/faults either which is good news. :)

Maybe you could flash a couple to the GTX BIOS to see how it effects overclocks and performance too. ;)

Agree with the others.

Get to it man! :D

Out of interest, how come you purchased four? What are you going to do with the other two cards?

I will be recieving mine tomorrow. Will flash to GTX bios and post results! I still have my benchmarks from the XFX 7800GT SLI setup I had. Interested to see how this single card will compare.

If all goes well, I will purchasing another ASAP. If they still have some...

Gibbo, do you have many left?

Thats the plan m8.

If you can supply / give me a link for the GTX Bios I will update them and see how it effects performance.

...sorry new to all this...isn't the BadAxe a Cross-fire motherboard...forgive me if I'm doing something really stupid here, like the old "asking the stupid question that everyone else knows the answer too...." bit, but how are you running two SLi nVidia boards on an Intel D975XBX board...only asking because I'm about to order a new system, and have been troubled with the lack of choice of SLi boards to support SLi...want a Conroe 6600 based rig...thanks for listening (putting up with)... :D

I'll let Asgard answer that one lol.

I am unsure if the bios is a specific MSI or generic nVidia bios. But people appear to be having success with it.

Perhaps Gibbo or someone else can elaborate.

Almost certain that is a build / driver related issue. I had the same trouble with my 7800GT cards in SLI mode.

One rebuild and an updated driver install later, all was well :cool:

Make sure your using updated drivers and try re-installing them, as suggested by MeatLoaf.
