How To: Overclock Your AMD / ATi GPU - Page 29

post #281 of 644
Once i saw artifacts on GPUtool, i gave up after a few tries. LOL

Maybe i should play a round of BFBC2 and see how that goes.

Should i also uninstall my GPUtool and reinstall it again or should i use FURMARK to check for artifacts?

And i dont intend to mess with my voltages. i''m a tech noob!

my temperatures are 53 in idle(gpu1 vrm - 50, gpu2 - 40), in game - 70-85
But, when i am testing my clocks at catalyst contol center(overdrive tab), it's fine, i am passed test and temps very good.
upd: i ran crysis now, even at Crytek logo movie i had artefacts, in windowed mode everything is ok, if my temps fine, why then i have artefacts?
I have mine overclocked to over stock clocks of the 5870 and at 1.162v with 935/1225. You don't need that much volts.

Other people have had issues like this, all I can suggest is to try a different overclocking program (but use the same procedure). I would suggest ATiTraytools -

It's more of a steep learning curve but it has many more advanced features.
If you still get freezes with that program then your card may just not clock well at all.

NC: Hrm....while it's the ATi forum it'll stay as ATi, besides I think most people refer to it as ATi still rather than AMD Game, so as far as search engine optimization goes I would probably just change it to How To: Overclock Your ATi/AMD GPU. Besides you won't see the AMD branding on GPUs until 2011, I believe then it would be appropriate for a name change.

I can only be rock stable at 875mhz...
Stock volt is 1.125.
stock idle volt is 0.95.

I dislike 3rd part software like afterburner and RBE doesn't apply voltage and fan speed properly with 5870-.-

I figured out the problem ... in you guide it said to change 'EnableUnofficialOverclocking' from 0 to 1. Well after I changed it back to 0 afterburner ran find w/o any problems. Maybe add a note for those who have this probem?

I achieved 975/1250 @ 1.162 v

Want to hit 1000 but can't w/o increase the voltage more ... anyone gone above 1.162?

^^^ I have gone up to 1.349 on my 5870, I would imagine you could rock that on a 5970 as well, but not sure how much more you will gain. You would be safe @ 1.2~1.25 though. That would get you 1Ghz I would imagine

I'll give it a try, just wanted to make sure other have tried w/o problems ... I noticed afterburner does not have voltage adjustment for memory, or does it?
