PowerColor LCS Radeon HD 7970 3GB

There is a review of the PowerColor LCS Radeon HD 7970 3GB posted this morning at Overclockers Club that is worth the click to head on over and check out.

Since the PowerColor LCS HD 7970 is liquid-cooled, I cranked the voltage up to 1300mv and let it rip. Any lower and the clock speeds would suffer. The higher voltage and frequency only impacted the load temperatures by 2 آ؛C, coming in at 44 آ؛C, validating PowerColor's claim to less than a 50 آ؛C load temperature. By overclocking, there were significant gains to be had in performance in all the games tested, making it a worthwhile endeavor.
