6870 Black overclocking questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i just got my first ATI card ever for $110 off craigslist. a xfx hd 6870 black edition with twin fans. my afterburner says i can increase the volts to 1300mV and the stock setting is 1174mV. i dont know anything about these cards and was just wondering if it was safe to push it that high. my 470 card's voltage wont increase that much ( it would melt anyway i guess )

thanks

Well i currently have a powercolor reference 6870 running at 1300v 1050/1250 on the stock cooler. These cards can take the voltage just watch your temps. With the double fans you really shouldnt have a problem. Consider settingup a fan profile on afterburner to keep you temps under 80.
