I only use 1 lcd monitor, btw I think its a bug with Afterburner, I just ran another test with Vantage and CPUID HWmonitor running in background got this :

Max with HWmonitor is correct 1.22v (stock 1.218volt in AB) and never went beyond that, but in Afterburner max volt was 1.600v hehehe really weird with AB. Ok now I'm sure its not my card's fault but Afterburner did.

Nah, what I mean is sensor monitor, ie. monitoring your volts, temps etc.

ANd by that pic, you are using a buncha monitors hehe, cpu z, gpuz, hwmonitor, ab. Using a monitoring app for screens is ok, but for real time monitoring, stick with one app at a time. My choice is hwinfo64. All the other monitoring apps only read input voltage, not real voltage.

@tsm106, Its for detail spec so I added CPUZ after vantage finished, when running vantage I only use HWmonitor and Afterburner for monitoring.
Ok HWinfo64 sounds good and more accurate smile.gif thx for the tips, tsm106 thumb.gif

So, okay, I'm having a fan issue. For some reason, every time I start my computer, the fan starts at where I set it at (38%). But after about a minutes of starting, the fan shoots up to 50% and stays there. I can't figure out why. I go into Afterburner and reset it and it goes back to 38% and stays there. This happens every time I start the computer.

Anyone know what's going on here?

EDIT: Here's a screenshot:
416

EDIT AGAIN...
Nevermind, I got it figured out. I am not used to ATI/AMD cards much, so it's a bit of a learning process for me. redface.gif

So, a couple of things. First, welcome to all the new members. Those screenshots look great. I noticed a lot of Sapphire and MSI models. We need some more of the other brands in here. lol

I'm gonna make updates about once or twice a week. That way, in case I don't get on here much, I can at least update every so often.

I'm keeping my card stock for the time being. I'm more of a fan of BIOS editing. I should actually install my copy of 3DMark 11 once I get my overclocks on this card. I have a code, and haven't used it yet. biggrin.gif

Get my card (7870) tomorrow afternoon sometime via UPS. Should I uninstall my current drivers which are 12.3 and working fine. I was thinking just install the 7870 and go with it. They work fine. My rig will recognize there's a new card once powered up. Might have to download a Windows update at the most I'm thinking. smile.gif

Guys, I need help.

I'll be getting one 7870 in a couple of weeks. My concern is that my PSU won't be able to keep up with the card.

I have a XION Xon 700p12n 700W. It says on the label that has two 12V+ rails, one at 21A, the second at 22A. It does have two 6-pin PCI-E connectors.

So, should I get a new PSU? I'm also worried about the power consumption and my electric bill. Since the 7870 requires more power than my 6850.

I was looking at the OCZ ModXStream 600W. My budget is like $60-70.

So, what do you think? And which one would you recommend if I need to change it?

Uninstall what you have, shut down, put in new card, install 12.3 thumb.gif
