It will be useless to contact XFX , all brands have this same voltage issue. Quite annoying though , my sapphire card @1300/1550 goes up to 1.7v according to gpuz although i only set 1.3v in afterburner

My card doesn't have the voltage issue.. scroll back a couple of pages for my screenshots with max Voltage readings. So contacting XFX might just be worth it.

Besides, i'm rather curious to hear what they say is the culprit.

Reviewing my sensor logs, its quite obvious there is something bug related going on here. More than once I have not only read voltages above 1.6v, but also in the realm of -80v. That's just not possible.

Your card is 7850 and afaik there is no voltage spike/ issue with 7850 but its different story with with 7870, somehow i starting to believe if there is some defect with hd 7870 series frown.gif gotta wait and see if catalyst 12.4 will fix this or not

Because the problem is usually presenting in the 7870.

Contacting XFX tech support is just as useless as posting on here and speculating why voltage spikes are occurring. I understand all manufacturer's cards are seeing the problem. Whether or not this is actually an issue or a monitoring bug we don't know.

I would rather get the manufacturers opinion on the matter that way I am covered if my card gets fried from ridiculous voltage spikes; if they are indeed occurring.

At the very least I expect XFX either knows about the issue, or has no clue and will offer me another card... or perhaps an upgrade to a 7950.

Either way I will get information from the manufacturer or at least bring the problem to their attention.

I created a support ticket with Sapphire to see if they can provide a solution to our voltage spike issue, ill let you guys know if they respond with any important information.

I mentioned this forum, and this thread, and that I am not the only one with this issue, and it is present amongst several different brands of the HD7870.

I uploaded my GPUz sensor log so they can see first hand what we are seeing.


Update: The support rep suggests that I test the card in another system, to determine if its a hardware issue with the card or the system. I know that its not my system, and I am betting that I will see the same results on a different PC, only because everyone else is having the same issue. Never the less, I will try to get another system going to test out the card on.

Anyone here with a 7870 CF set-up and a 2500K or 2600K that can reach attleast 4,6ghz that wants to help me in creating a nice interresting review between the 7850 and 7870 ?
