hello

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hi guys its been a while since i posted , i came back because of some troubles with my graphic card , well its working fine
but lets try to solve these issues if you please

1_ a metal bar from the back of the case covers fell on the top of the card damaging the upper DVI connector (keeps showing corrupt colors and artifacts )
thing is the lower connector and the card are working fine but i was reading about DVI connector and i learned that
my card have x 2 DVI one single channel and one dual .. what i want to know is if the upper connector is not working
because its damaged from the metal bar or because its a dual DVI and i need to use the single ?

2_ new ccc driver gives a strong warning against over clocking , saying it migh damage amd processor , well i thought ocing
would only cause instability if heat is under control , actually i am running a high oc on my power color 6870
at factory its 900/1050 i have set it to 975/1170 , is that dangerous ?

3_ new ccc over drive is enabled by default not like the old check box and its interacting with after burner causing the fan to
jump at 50% when i start windows . what should i do ?

thanks

All I can tell you is that your graphics card overclock isn't dangerous. I'm sorry it's not much of a help...

1. dual dvi simply means that you have 2 dvi display ports - if you are having issues with one of the connectors - i might very well be damaged.

2. as long as you keep your temps in check and your card is stable, its safe.

3. if there is no way of disabling overdrive just unstinstall CCC or prevent it from starting up when your computer does

hope this helps!

yes thanks but still i can use some more advise

1_ so everyone now is disabling ccc ? i thought its an important tool i use it to adjust colors .
i have lowered the fan on over drive to 20% and it stopped setting it up . i dunno if there is other conflicts

2_ http://www.powercolor.com/us/products_features.asp?id=272#Specification

DVI Output DL-DVI-I/ SL-DVI-D

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/304311-33-6870-multi-display-problem

dual dvi connector dose not mean x2 connectors . it mean one of them in single the other is dual in the newer amd there is one dual only

http://www.powercolor.com/us/products_features.asp?id=386#Specification

DVI Output Dual Link DVI-I x1 , here there is one connector but its a dual DVI , so maybe i should not use the upper one because of this issue not because its damaged , just a guess
i dunno the difference
