I normally like your articles SKYMTL and i'm an nvidia user myself. However, this reeks of trying to create controversy where none exists. I say good on AMD, I haven't heard of a single user not successful with a 7970ghz BIOS flash. All 7xxx cards tend to OC extremely well, and without the retarded temperature throttle / power throttle that plague nvidia kepler cards. I purchased MSI lightning 680s precisely for this reason, becuase overclocking STINKS on most kepler cards - you can OC but you will run into thermal throttle....overpower throttle....if you keep msi afterburner overlay open you will see your clockspeeds continually fluctuate from all that crap.....
