HD 5970 overclock problems? - Page 4

post #31 of 34
My 5970 can do 910/1225 on 1.149V on core and stock on memory. Now from what I have known for about a year now mine is a pretty nice overclocker for that reason. But the main problem as other people have said is the vrm cooling is very bad, I best say that I would take the memory as far as you can go without overvolting it. Honestly ~1000 on the memory isn't terrible, the core can get you far but as others have also said I wouldn't go over ~1.17v on stock cooling just for pure safety.

Well mine water cooled but the block does not have channels over the vrms for gpu2 so those vrms can get hot while vrms on gpu1 stay under 55c.

But to the op id try to keep your vrms under 100-105c to be safe some people say downclocking memory can get you higher core clocks with my card it does not matter tho.

wait, your not using a full cover block?
did AMD every attempt to fix this issue with a revised cooler for the 5970?

I am but heatkiller decided they didnt need to have channels over the vrms at the end of the card so they dont get cooled very good. I did do some testing funny 850mhz on my 5970 only needs 1.10 but 900 needs 1.17.
