My System Specs

Default

Alright an update. Got a HIS 7970 from a more local computer shoppe. This one fit the waterblock perfectly. However after installing it this morning I got crashing during games. The PC would lock up with either a solid colour or vertical lines of different colours. So far it only crashed while playing World of Tanks so maybe the card is voicing it's opinion of F2P games? But it is taking more time between crashes so perhaps it's a driver issue or the thermal paste is curing. And no it is not overheating. Realtemp showed the gpu at 34 degrees. I'll do more tests once I'm done at work. Plus side it did play WoT better than the 6970 it is replacing.
