XFX HD 6950 2GB Nightmare - Page 4

post #31 of 46
XFX has recently changed the parts of their gpu's to cheaper components.
That is your problem, don't ever buy another xfx card from them, don't be surprised if those cards die in like 2 or 3 months anyway. Even tough XFX has changed to cheaper gpu components, they haven't informed the public, although some people did her about this.

Even if the psu is crap, my system pulls a little more than 400w while gaming.

73c idle is way hot. My cards hit 90c but idle way down in the 40's. I would bet that it's the temps.

By the way,if you look at the mobo i have(start of thread)there isnt enough spacing between cards.Its like if theyre touching eachother. Someone said about the PSU for 100 and being 900W,i got a bargain with MIR. Apevia Warlock 900W.price with shipping.If its no good, then a return will be made.

I had a very similar problem. I had a brand new corsair AX750 (gold certified) and only one 2gb xfx 6950 card. Nothing overclocked. I had idle temps in the 40-50's and around 70 Celsius under heaving gaming.

My case is an Antec 902 with plenty of cooling. IF you can, try to see if your PSU fan is spinning at all, one look see after testing my card in a friends computer proved it wasn't the gpu, rather it was the PSU overheating and shutting itself off to protect itself. I'm in the process of replacing the PSU and I will post my results in the near future.

Well, if a complete stranger told you it was good...

...no seriously, that is crap. No offense intended to you.

See if there is an underwriters number on the label. I'll bet it is a re-badged generic unit.
Can you take a photo of the label on the side of the PSU? I really am curious.

I suggest you return that PSU. For 100, you could do much better with a PSU. You do not need 900W, nor is that unit really 900W.

Now hold on just a minute! That PSU is back up by a "World Trusted Warranty", surely it is among the very best PSU's?.



Just kidding..... ;-)


To the OP, I have dual 6950's and my Corsair tx850 is more than enough to power them and the rest of my system. They can usually be had for a pretty fair price on sale and whatnot....
