Overclocking Radeon 5870 @ stock voltages - Page 2

Tried that, the option was greyed out even with opening the .cfg. My card is non-reference so I guess that's why D:

That's weird. When I used Trixx it didn't have an offset voltage like that; it was a fixed voltage. headscratch.gif What version of Trixx are you using? And if all else fails, have you tried using a windows system restore before you did any of the overclocking?

Well it's still doing it.

I uninstalled the ATI drivers using Driver Sweeper etc, turned off my PC then opened it and reseated the Video Card.

Turned the PC back on, installed the drivers for the Video Card.

Ran FurMark and it happened instantly - black screen as if to say the video card wasn't responding to it, and the fan speed went to 100%.

I'm refusing to believe the card is ****ed, it's never done something like this before, it works fine when not under heavy load.

uninstall drivers and try a different pci-e slot. I'm quite sure it won't anymore on a different slot (had a similar issue few weeks ago)

Will try that, there's white and blue slots, what's the main difference there?

There is a BIOS update for it here - http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/AMD_Series/EAH58702DIS1GD5V2/#download

I'm leaning towards using it, can't think of any other options.

I'd have to get in contact with my dad about the RMA, this was his card.
