Cool.

I too have a 7900GT, but mines a 7900GT KO Superclocked. Isn't yours? I thought you asked about overclocking or something.

nah mines a 7900 GT CO

the one with the copper heat sink OCed to 550/1580

Yeah Im just saying the one I have is stock voltage meaning 1.2

7900 GTX's run at 1.4

and your KO SUPERCLOCK runs at 1.5

People who do 1.4 Volt mods usally get cores up to 650 and up.
Hence the 7900 GTX core clock at 650- 680...

with a 1.55 Mod, were looking at a 720 core, or around there.




Your card has great OC potential.

you sure you cant get it off?

I mean it cant be THAT tight can it?

or are the screws stripped?

Becuase yeah you would be looking at high 70's at load with that stock cooler and 650 core or somthing...
