Crossfire Sapphire 6970+EAH6950 DCII Overclocking - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Thread Starter 
okay, thank you for your time - knowing that Afterburner can regulate the vcore on DC cards is giving me hope... so I've got either broken card or bad version of Afterburner... I'll try to find another 6950 DCII for testing

Your Afterburner version seems to be a bit old, I think there's up to 2.2.0 BETA 6 already or even newer!

Get newest version and try!

I'll sit here waiting for your reply, I want to know if it worked.

I will not rest until we've got ur issue fixed!

Why would you gimp your 6970 by mixing it with a 6950?

Alright, sorry for the misinformartion here, apparently I was wrong.

MSI Afterburner does not support Voltage Control on the Asus cards with their own Asus PCB.

The only way to do it is via Smart Doctor, now the issue is I don't know why Smart Doctor doesn't work for you...

Have you tried removing the Sapphire HD6970 and just doing it with ur 6950?

Maybe SmartDoctor is acting up because you have an HD6970 + HD6950... Could that be the problem?

If you have some time, try just the HD6950?

Hope I could help you out, and sorry for the misinformation about MSI Afterburner, my bad.

Read what I said above, I was wrong, I'm sorry.

Only way to do it is via Smart Doctor, remove the Sapphire HD6970 and use only the Asus 6950 DirectCU II, see if it works with just 1 card.

I think it could be a conflict for having an HD6970 together with an HD6950.

Have you considered watercooling the Asus card then and just make it the top one? That would solve all your problems for about $200.00 USD

Usage of both cards in 3Dmark11 is 100% and I'm getting pretty nice results... everything is running okay

I can't run the Smartdoctor when that Asus card isn't in primary slot (I've solved this issue by flashing that sapphire card with asus bios ;-))
When I was testing single card solution everything was ok (6950 DCII - 1,206 Vcore 970/1430 using Smartdoctor)

Considering you had to flash your Sapphire to get Smart Doctor to open, I'd say there's a conflict between cards.

Have you considered selling one of the cards and get a new one with the same model?

I'd sell the Sapphire and grab another 6950 DirectCU II, they're great Overclockers and you wouldn't be dissapointed.

I think you're right because that Sapphire reference card is too loud (I hate when my computer is noisy) and it hasn't got so good overclocking potential
