is this voltage safe for sapphire 5830?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
so i have a sapphire 5830. stock its 1.163 volts, core 800mhz and 1000 mhz for memory.

i overclocked it to core 970 mhz and 1130 mhz memory. with 1.3 volts.

will this degrade my gpu? i tested it on furmark for about 10 minutes. i've been playing nfs most wanted for hours, and counter strike for hours so i like to think its generally stable for my needs.

edit: also, is there any way to surpass the sapphire trixx voltage? it can only go up to 1.3. i wanna see if i can get 1 ghz with this.

1.3V Is probably fine. As far as I know there's no way to go above 1.3V in Sapphire Trixx and I don't remember the 5830 being an amazing overclocker either, 970MHz sounds like a good clock.

Perhaps a more aggressive fan curve may allow for a high core clock with the same voltage.

Yea its surprisingly really good at overclocking. Card temps do not exceed 80c while testing with furmark, with actual games it goes up to 76c. I might try giving it a better fan curve, any suggestions how to make it really good?

It's hard to say as your card has a different fan to my card and my system is sitting on a box 1 ft away from me, your system could be a couple of meters away in a closed case. So what's loud right next to me may not be in a case that's away on the floor.

It's a case of what you don't mind really, if the card already gets too noisy, leave it, if not try a more aggressive curve. 1C - 1% Might be a good way to start.
