MSI 6850 Power Edition - Settings safe for 24/7?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I just bought my msi 6850 power edition and I have it overclocked at 1ghz w/ 1.25v. I'm wondering if these settings are safe for 24/7? With summer ambients in the high 80's, I load around 80c at these settings with the default fan profile.

Just up the fan a tad, I would set it to spin up to where its just audible (I'm guessing that its quiet). I think that voltage would be fine, I havent been red in awhile but I do remember them taking more than green cards as far as voltage was concerned.

Edit: Did a little search and people are using 1.3v for 6850s.

Really surprised about the overclockability of these 6850s since they have such low power draw... was able to take mine to 875/1100 with no voltage bumps

by the way, as far as I can tell memory overclocking has a much bigger impact on my performance than core OCing

Eh, the memory is a little stubborn, but I think i'll try out the memory voltage feature on this card.

lol yes, and they were the exact same cards as this one, except they were the overclocked editions. I loved those cards so much that I got them again for my low power downgrade, but in the stock version. And this card clocks better than they did. <3 msi
