[Official] 7870 Tahiti LE (XT) Owners Club - Page 394

post #3931 of 5223
What BIOS should I be using for a Sapphire 7870 XT if the core clock is constantly changing from 975 to 925 and sometimes lower when it should be seeing 100% load from MSI Kombustor?

I tried disabling Powerplay, changing voltages, increasing the power limit %, but nothing helps. Is their a BIOS that fixes that for this card?

Edited the bios on mine. Only thing that worked 100%

Also those temps are with all radiator fans 700-800 RPM smile.gif. Silent beast.

what paste did you use?

First time was Gelid GC-Extreme which is actually just about the best regular TIM around. By regular I mean no diamond/liquid metal etc.

Thing is the plunger for the tube was extremely difficult to push in. It would come gushing out all at once with way too much TIM. Decided to use MX-2 this time. Nice little dot in the middle.

Almost 10k on graphics:

FX 4.5 + VTX 1200mhz.

Fun thing, it show´s HIS as the vendor:D

Better than my Asus 7950 DCII V2 TOP 1050mhz with I5 3570k 4.5:

I don't see how that score is possible. I did quite a few firestrike runs at 5 GHz+ on 8350 and 1200+ on GPU. Score always sucked compared to any Intel graphics score (my physics was around 9500 too).

I looked at every result for a 7870 XT and 8350, my results were right in line with the top 5. In fact my scores are now in the top 5 for an 8350 with 7870 XT. My graphics score always around the 6500-7000 mark...

So how is an 8320 with 7870 XT getting near 10000?


LOL, it's 3dmark11... that's why. Derp. I've only run firestrike.
