4870 Overclock limits?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Someone posted a reply to an older thread referring to overcloking limits, do these cards have them?

If so what are they?

Thanks.

P.S: What are the best brands of ATi cards, the eVGA and XFX of ATi manufacturers?

Not sure what the overclock limits are for this card, im getting one in a few days though..

From my experiance its normally fine to max out the overclocking in the ATI overdrive panel, as long as your fan speeds are set correctly (may need rivatuner). Just watch the temps and see if you get any troubles in games.

As for the best brands i think Visiontek are seen to be the best (they have good warranty), also sapphire and HIS are good. My last two cards have been sapphire and i havnt had any problems, and HIS do some good coolers! Not sure if they have released any ICEQ coolers for the 4870 yet though.
