Does this sound about right?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been playing around with MSI afterburner. I have a Sapphire HD 5870 2GB and I've overclocked it 900/1300 on stock voltage. So does this sound right?

1920x1080 res. 15 minute test w/ MSI kombustor
Avg. temp 72C
avg. FPS 282

Am I missing something? One would think you would need to put some more voltage to it...

It only gave pause when I tried to open firefox while doing the burn in, but it still didn't crash.

EDIT: What is a good aftermarket cooler for my card? I have seen a couple but they all have different placement it seems and I need to know which one I need. +rep to whomever can answer this question. My card is Sapphire HD 5870 EYEfinity6 2GB. Also if you can find me one with red LED lights I'll rep you for each post you make in this thread LOL. Please only 2 slot coolers. Thanks.

oh.. and why is it that a brand new 6970 sells for about $340 but a new 5870 still sells for $400+?! I must be missing something here...
