6950 overclock question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What kind of overclocks can people generally get from these cards? I'm just wondering for a reference to get started.

Depends ...

Mine maxes out at 940/1440 but mine is rev1 and flashed with 6970 bios .

Not all about clock speeds , sometimes i get better results than 6950's @ 1ghz .

The newer revisions clock abit higher , so expect close to 1ghz core and 1500mhz memory .

but 950/1450 is a sweet number for 6950/70's , most can achieve this on stock voltage though its impossible for me even at 1.3v.

its just your luck i guess , u might do 920 , 950 or you might do 1ghz .

Being a TFIII though u will get a nice overclock im sure of it .

start off with 950/1450 @ 1.2v and see if thats stable .

From what iv heard you should be able to get close to 950/1450 on stock voltage with the TFIII , im sure you can alter the memory voltage on those cards too .

anyway you dont need to go higher than 1.25v , use that as a max and see how high u can take your clocks . Run a few benchmarks to see if it remains stable and keep doing so until u get a freeze up , then you will know thats the limit of your card . Also make sure you setup a custom fan profile in msi afterburner to keep it cool under load .
