I am lovin my 5870.. couldn't be happier
post #2793 of 3765
I am super torn between the 5850 and 5870. I have the money for either and am ready to order. Only problem is I will be overclocking on water and am scared that a 5870 won't overclock enough and the 5850 overclocked would be just as fast for $100 less. This is killing me.

I'm in the precise same conundrum as turbocharged. And it gets worse when you hit the voltage regulator issue - i.e. most of the in-stock 5850 cards have a fixed voltage regulator that connot be increased in software.

So by the time I spend £240 on a decent 5850 and another £70 on a waterblock, you essentially have a card that's marginally slower, but quieter and around the same price as a 5870.....


So 've just decided, for once, I'll stop being an overclocking cheapskate and go for a 5870 with a waterblock already stuck on. Which is another £100 - which makes for bizzare logic but sort of makes sense.

post #2799 of 3765
May as well go ahead and say that I'm in; maybe I'll be that lucky #400? LOL

Finally made the switch away from nVidia which I've been using since 2001... actually I'll have two gaming boxes now, the other will still be running my GTX 275.

So for my first ATI card?

A reference Sapphire 5850 Vanilla; picked up off Ebay through Bing.com, at $275!

It went into my new build, which is my current Sig Rig...

As soon as I got the build finished, and Windows installed, the first thing I did was go straight to downloading MSI Afterburner and started overclocking!

I took it up to 950 Core clock first thing, with 1175 on the Memory and voltage at 1165; set the fan speed at 65% and run Furmark for about 20 minutes. Temps pushed up to 75+ so I cranked the Fan up a little more and Temps held steady at around 70 - 75.

Now I have a Cooler Master R4 Red LED Fan mounted on my side panel of my Storm Scout Case, pushing air directly onto my 5850 and this time, while running the same Overclock and running MSI Kombuster for 30 minutes, my temps never topped 64!

Though I think Kombuster doesn't push things as much as Furmark does; even though they appear to be roughly the same program.

Anyway, I'll have a pic of that, posted later tonight!

Gonna try to go for that 1000mhz mark soon. Waiting on a couple more Fans to arrive so I can set up my Corsair H50 and get another side fan mounted, then finish off some cable management!

If you really want to oc it that much that bad. You could always try to mod it and replace the voltage regulators with some higher end ones? possibly.
