Can this Sapphire 5870 do a moderate OC?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a Sapphire 5870 1GB and want to OC it a little. First, is it a good idea with its cooler? Second, about how far could I get it without much trouble? I have Trixx and Afterburner and good airflow in my case(HAF X). I don't mind too much noise but anything over 75% is over the top. Here's the card:

I have one of those, just try pushing it with msi afterburner, and see what your temps are, and if they are too high make a fan profile on it with msi afterburner.

Alright, I have and use afterburner. I'll see what I can do. Any voltage tips I should know?

I dont know personally if they support volt modding,(think only the reference models do this) also how far are you planning on pushing it?

Certainly not anywhere its limits. I'm new to this so I didn't know if I'd have to volt up or not.

you shouldnt have to volt up for a semi decent overclock. I have never done that myself.

Alright, I got the core up to 900 from 850 stock and memory to 1245 from 1200 stock. Ran fur mark, no artifacts, small temp increase from stock(1-2 degrees), small fps increas(1-5). Not much but that's all I want to do for now. Highest temp was 81, so I lowered mem, stayed around 77-78 C for intense burn-ins. Is that ok? I know my own gaming and folding is not that stressful...

That's as far as you can go with stock voltage because that 5870 is a non-reference and it doesn't have software voltage control. If you wish to increase the voltage, the only way to do it is by voltage hard modding.

77-78°C is exceptional good with that Vapor chamber colling running intense burn-in test.
