Possible to overvolt crossfired cards independently using Trixx?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have both a Gigabyte R585OC and Sapphire 5850 Xtreme in crossfire. Both are non-reference, so I can't overvolt using Afterburner or whatever, but the Xtreme just got overvolt support in Trixx. The R585OC overclocks just fine on the stock voltages (my goal is to try and approach 5870 clocks as much as possible), but the 5850 Xtreme can't really go very high without needing some sort of boost in voltage it would seem. But looking at the Trixx software, there doesn't really seem to be a way to control just the second card's voltage.

For reference, I have the Xtreme in the second slot because it only has one DVI port and I need two (using two monitors), so simply switching their physical positions and unlinking them in Trixx won't work. Is there anything else I can do? I thought maybe I could just take out the R585OC and just overclock the Xtreme by itself, then figure out what voltage I need and change the BIOS, but is that a bad idea? (I've looked at RBE and I'm not honestly sure which of the voltages I would need to change anyways). Or would I just be better off trying to trade the 5850 xtreme for another R585OC or something? I'd hope not, as it runs quite cool/quiet.

Thanks for any help, and let me know if I need to explain anything else.
