O.C. tips for xfx 6950 1gb. XXX edition

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to oc my XFX HD695XZDDC it has the dual fans design.
What is the top core voltage for these cards? Stock is at 1.1volts. If anyone has this card or something close, please share your oc and what ever tips you might have. I'm using msi afterburner and trying to follow the sticky guide for ocing amd cards form the top of this section. But it doesn't say much about safe max. volts. Also I've got two of these cards in crossfire mode, should I oc them both at same time or 1 at a time? Thanks in advance!

I don't know about how hot these cards get but both the 6000 series and 5000 series are 40nm, so I never try to go higher than 1.25 volts, I stay at 1.225 maximum to be safe.

Thanks for the reply I have seen some web sites using 1.2 volts and 1 using 1.3 volts but I'm not sure if those are safe to run daily or not please keep the tips rolling in I want as much info as I can on this

The rule I go by when it comes to OC graphichs card on stock air cooler. Maximum load temperature should no go above 75°C mark during stress testing or for 24/7 gaming.

Find your highest stabil OC with lowest possible voltage. For your card 1.15-1.2v should be more than plenty.

The stress tests I normally use; Furmark, OCCT, Vantage, 3DMark 11 and most importanly test it with the games you play.

The cards I hear the most on this site are
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121431
If you have enough space it's a 3 slots so it might make crossfire imposible. But a very good oc'er!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127562 This is a great oc'er too and it's only a 2 slots. Might be better for the long run with crossfire
