Safe X1950XT temps? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Thread Starter 
When I first started ATItool the core was at 575. I moved it up quite a bit. =D So I still overclocked. Yay for me.

That is because of the ATi hotkey poller. It downclocks your card while in 2d mode, so that it will use less power, last longer ect.

So what you have done is brought it up to stock 3d speeds while on the desktop.

I'm not sure if it will just apply the stock settings over your overclock (once you start overclocking) when you run a game, so you may want to look into that.

You can just disable the hotkey poller that changes the clock speeds (note when you do this the default will be the lower 3d speeds so you will have to clock up from there). Go start, run, services.msc and ATi hotkey poller should be near the top. Right click and go to properties and set it to disabled.

yeah defualt is 621/900... i can get mine up to 700/1000 pretty easily with a small voltage increase. temps dont go up to much either. my main beef with the stock cooler is that its only really efficetive if the fan is cranked and that = loud to me.

oh and since we have the same card im gonna say our coolers are pretty equivelant. the spinning cube/artifact scan will "load" your graphics card SIGNIFIGANTLY more than C&C generals...

Well my cards thermal protection kicked in at 102c so reckon at least to keep it below this! Anyway, usually 80'ish at load

You shouldnt have to disable the hotkey poller if you are using a newer version of ATI.Tool. I use version 0.26 (seemed to be the most stable/effective version for my system)
I know that the version I'm using allows me to switch to 3D clocks when ATI.Tool starts... this in effect disables the hotkey poller for you. You should check the box that disables clock switching until a system restart... disabling and enabling multiple times can cause the drivers to become unstable. Also, you really shouldnt use the "finer clock step" option, because I've noticed this can lead to inneffective gpu/mem speeds which can actually lower your fps in a game.

I have both of my 1950XTX's OC'd to 722.50 core / 1080 mem. and the voltage settings are stock on the ram, and 1.5 gpu main / 1.382 secondary. I have also removed the stock hsf and used new thermal paste for contact with the gpus and I used copper shims & dielectric grease in place of the thermal tape that was on the mem chips.
I have a profile that returns the speeds to the 2D default when ATI.Tool starts even though the program switched to 3D clocks only at startup. then I have a profile for the standard 3D clock speeds for playing games that dont require any extra muscle, and I have my overclocked setting for when I need the extra kick out of my cards. My temps are as follows while gaming (Playing KOTOR 2 at Full Settings & Max Resolution)...

58'c - 63'c @ 722.50/1080.00
fan settings in ATI.Tool :
00'c - 25%``\\
34'c - 31%```\\_ only speeds/temps hit while on desktop
39'c - 44%```/
44'c - 50%``/
49'c - 75%```\\
54'c - 88%````\\_ speeds/temps hit while gaming
59'c - 94%````/
64'c - 100%``/

Notice the jump in speeds after 44'c... since the card(s) should not get hotter than that while not gaming, I can use this same fan setup for 2D or 3D clock speeds. When I'm not gaming, I simply switch back to my profile named "2D DEFAULTS" which sets the clocks back to 506.25/594.00 and back to lower voltage settings as well. I hope some of this helped you out. This is a very comfortable setting for my PC / Gaming needs. Perhaps you could get some use out of similar settings.

I got my X1950XT with a HR-03 cooler

Core: 680 MHz
Mem: 1030 (2060) MHz

Idle: 40-43C
Load: 59-63C

I have the heatsink on the other side with a 90mm fan on top of it pulling air away from the card going up plus a 120mm case fan blowing on the card on the side of my Antec 900 case as well as the two in the front intake area.

What drivers are you guys using for your X1950Xts?

I just use the most up to date Catalyst drivers... I refuse to use any other drivers than those provided by the manufacturer. Just causes too many problems, and I've found that most secondary drivers like that are built to enhance just one game in particular, or to boost scores of 3D.Mark xx. (Which I consider cheating!)
I have found the newest catalyst drivers to be the most considerable boost I've gained for a long time as far as performance goes... I just played through BioShock @ maximum settings @ max resolution, and never noticed a hiccup. Great game by the way, BioShock!

With my overclock I NEVER go above 60C on the core. (after crysis beta running for 2 hours) Look into the gigabyte V-power. I HIGHLY recommend it.
