How do u get the dried paste off the card, when u go to watercool it, the paste is dried on, and rubbing alcohol does not usually get it off, is it the same with this card. If so, how did you guys manage to do it?

dry paper towel. then alcohol after most is gone. Q-tip with alcohol after that if you can't get it all. Pretty easy.

Edit: for 1200/1600 1.174v works but crashed a few times after gaming for 30-45min. 1.200v hasn't crashed at all.

2x 6950 > 6990 > 7970 would be a downgrade, unless you want less noise

It was pretty dry when I took it off. Didn't take much time at all. Took me 30min total to take apart, clean, cut thermal pads, peel the plastic of both sides of the thermal pads, VERY thin layer of paste across both chip and block, and then very small rice sized in the center of the chip, and then put together. Temps are amazing!!

Would someone be kind enough to do a run of Crysis at 1920x1080 all very high settings please?
post #4737 of 38740
When you overclock, and it crashes, is it normally the voltage for the core or the memory? Cause my card overclocks like a beast, but it needs a lot of voltage. I crashed at 1.275v/1.65v at 1250/1750, but 1.281v/1.681v was perfect. But that is really high. I just want to know how impactful is the voltage for each portion of the card. So more or less, which one is more important for OC I guess you could say?

FROZENCPU.com OF COURSE thumb.gif

Invisible, If your card need that much voltage to be stable, you answered your own ?. Just makes sure you keep it cool. That same overclock may work at a load of 75c but could fail at 80c. Keep it cool and you'll be fine.

I ran my 5870's @ 1.3v for a year and a half on water. Heat kills cards, not voltage so as long as you are properly cooling them you are fine. As far as 28nm's ability to deal with higher voltage... I couldn't comment on that, but it was fine for my 5870's that defaulted at 1.164 volts.
