Sapphire Trixx HD 6870

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I really have no idea how to overclock but I downloaded Sapphire Trixx since my HD 6870(1GB) is Sapphire.
I was looking at the info then my clocks seem to be weird 900/4200 MHZ is that normal? It says thats my default mem clock.
but on AMD's Control Center it shows 900/1050

281

anyway how do you overclock this? lol

thanks

Yes those are the default clockspeeds. To overclock, just slide the top slider in AMD overdrive. I recommend putting it to 940mhz core and 1100 memory. See how that goes for you. Also, your idle temp is 11c higher than mine. I have a reference sapphire 6870 running at 970/1100. My fan speed is at 40% and yours is at 50%, yet the temps are higher. What's you case situation? Have your pc in a hot place? Overclocking only take the temps in one direction and that's up.

yea the weather here is pretty hot 26-34'c . I have a fractal design core 3000 case I added a NZXT FN 140RB fan (1300rpm) I'll also be replacing the stock fans that came with the case, I'm looking onto a 2000rpm case fan.. Anyway I'll try 940 / 1100 mhz, I'll let you know what temp I get and what happens.

okay lol. somethings wrong. I put the slider to 940 and 1100 as you said Battlefield 3 suddenly stops after a few seconds.. windows said something wrong with display driver... I used AMD Overdrive not trixx. I set it back to default again.

...

happens with trixx too I tried putting the core clock to 940 still happens... BF3 stops after a few seconds

Catalyst overdrive and Trixx aren't stable to OC.

Get MSI Afterburner Beta from the forums. (Sorry my internet is limited at work).
