Time to return my 4850!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Looks like a got a lemon. Can't even hit 700/1085 without artifacting like crazy (full load temps hit mid 70s) ... Hopefully the Bestbuy close to me will still have the card in stock so I can exchange it.

I am having same type of problem... If I OC just a little I get strange things happening, But I am hitting the low 80s for a max temp (idles around 66*)...

Ugh, now my OC artifacts at 670/1045... Might as well just exchange this for another one at Bestbuy. Anyone know if their 30day return policy includes Video Cards that were opened?

I think you will have to use some "strategically misplaced honesty" and tell them it artifacted when you got it rather than mentioning OC.

Are you using the stock cooler? And did you set the fan at a fixed speed? I know from experience with my 3850(which is basically the same cooler) that I can't go past 730/950 and even stock with default fan settings it reaches 90C under load. When you consider how much more powerful the 4850 is I think it might just be a cooling issue.

You should have no problem exchanging it have you tried the fixed that is out for the fan speed? I have the same card and I just unhooked the wire to the fan controller so it runs at 100%.

Well, either way, I can return the card for 30days. So an exchange wouldn't be an issue.

There is a differnce betweeen brands and voltages set in the bios of these cards.

It seems to me that the visiontek cards have a lower voltage setting on the bios. Some have been able to OC higher using the MSI bios and some other modded bios's .

Keep in mind the voltage range set in these bios is very limited and you still need to pencil/hard mod to OC past around 720. ( as of now OC past 700 is only workable through editing the bios clocks).

hope this helps.
