    I recently bought a Sapphire HD 7970 Vapor X Ghz Edition (3gb model).
    Everything is working as it should. My only problem is that Afterburner recognizes my card as if it were a MSI R7970 Lighting BE, aslo I can't see or change the Core Voltage.
    I'm using the latest versions of CCC and Afterburner.
    Thanks in advance.

    Actually it is "unlock voltage control" under settings in the GUI.

    I stop to use new MSI Afterburner. After 12.1 driver on ATI 5870 MSI Afterburner show clock 0 for GPU and Memory. I need to tweak damn Afterburner and than I need to stay in 3D because after back on 2D screen flashing start.
    I found solution. I back on MSI Afterburner 1.5.0, 1.6.0 or 1.6.1 is last good.
    I only need to tip 1 nothing more. No more flashing with new drivers, now more tweaking MSI Afterburner. With 1.5.0 Afterburner is unlock OC immediately I think. Only option for AUX voltage on my card is lock I can control only normal voltage. But that not help me much because card is hot and without that and memory can't go over 1300. Now I play again on 950/1300 every day without restart after gaming.
    My dear ATI, this is from good old times... After series 5xxx is AMD in device manager and GPU-Z, because that after this card cross on EVGA NVIDIA.
    Many people ask me to sell this but I will keep best and last single ATI model, smoother than 6970.
    5870 with 2GB and Volterra VT1168 Diode x6 Eyefinity.
