Partnered with award-winning cooling manufacture EKwaterblocks, the PowerColor LCS HD7970 enhances the overclocking headroom and has factory OC setting at 1150 MHz core and 5.7 Gbps memory, delivering extraordinary thermal performance for optimum system stability in a superb OC setting.

    The PowerColor LCS HD7970 dissipates the heat from the nickel coated copper base which fully covers the key components, enhancing anti-oxidizing ability and allowing GPU temperature under 50°C even under full load. Moreover, with acetal surface of water block design, preventing moisture damage to ensure the longer life cycle.

    I'm sure this thing can be overclocked with extra voltage up to 1400mhz, and at that frequency it's as fast as two GTX 580's.

    Interesting how the core speeds are conflicting. 1050MHz vs 1150MHz. I hope the higher speed is correct!
