New 5770 Questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have a MSI Hawk 5770 showing up tomorrow. It is my first real video card beyond an S-video card I bought earlier this year. What I am wondering is...

What drivers should I be running? The card has been out a while, are the newest drivers the best or is there a better one I should be looking at?

What normal temps should I see?
What are the safe temps?

What kind of over clock can I expect out of this card?

Edit:
What voltages are safe?

Mine is a HIS but probably about the same...newest drivers are best....mine runs around 53c - 60c while folding about the same while gaming....950/1350 overclocks are common

I run my 2x xfx 5770's at 900/1300 but I've had them up to 940/1400 but they get toasty at those clocks, at least mine do with the reference coolers. As for safe temps you want to keep them out of the 90c+ range. My cards run 72c max with furmark and auto fan speed.

Hi Fooliobass. You should use the latest drivers when you get the card, I believe 11.5 is now out.

I have the card and it's pretty good besides me buying it back when it was still 190 dollars... That Newegg 100 dollar after rebate deal makes me cry every time I see it. Anyway, my temps go from 43c idle to 63c according to Afterburner. HWMonitor reads 55c while GPU-Z reads 55c, 63c, and 57.5c respectively. When I overclock it, I put in around 1.3 volts from the 1.2. Gets me to 1000/1400 with temps maxing around 68c. Fans only rev up to 53 percent. I don't particularly find the need to overclock it in games though and I never went over that overclock.
