That's a gem of a card you have there nice find. Was it one of the first 5000? Do you know ASIC quality? (I'm just curious is all, each card I've tried had successively higher ASIC% and each card has clocked a little better than the last).
So, ~1400 game stable at 1.36-1.37v and 1480 bench stable @ 1.42v, pretty badass. What's it do on ~1.25v do you know?
Actually, no, not one of the first 5000. Had to flash the BIOS on this one like everyone else, so there's still hope out there
Sadly, this card did cost me more than $600, because I had to buy 3 cards to finally get this good one. I would sell the previous card as used on eBay though, truthfully answering any questions anyone had. So, someone gets a used card (used for a day
) in perfect shape for less than a new one, and I get most of my money back to try again. Win-win
This card does 1350mhz/6800mhz on the stock voltage. ASIC quality is 73%. Stable in every game at 1400/7000 while staying under 70C. I kept trying for this card out of spite, because I had one of the original 5000 that did 1372mhz/7000mhz on the stock
voltage, before AB 2.2.3 was even released to the public. Man I'd kill for voltage control on that card, it was even better than the one I have now. But it stopped working before 2.2.3's release unfortunately. All I did was take the GPU Reactor off to fit it under my NH-D14. Did that and it wouldn't work. It didn't come into contact with the NH-D14 or anything like that, so, I have no idea what happened. But I was so disappointed that I had a golden chip slip away that I decided I wouldn't stop trying until I had another one.
