I'm trying all I can in the BIOS but it's to big and confusing. It has all the "power savings" settings which are making me mad. The only settings like that I want are the lowering clock ones. It's trying to convince me I need to disable some cores and lower my clock. If I wanted to not slowly kill the planted and destroy all life as we know it I wouldn't have gotten AMD in the first place.
Yeah, I also like things that use more power then they need to which is one of the many advantages of the 7970
