Should I OC more? I'm using a stock cooler though. I'm not sure which aftermarket cooler to get for my 5850.

And yes, named after SC2 Idra, but I'm not him.

To put in perspective, I OC'd mine with stock cooler and stock voltage from 775 to 925 and the temperature has only gone up a little bit. Only reason I had to stop is because at 950 it started to artifacts and I'm too chicken to go higher with my voltage. I brought it back down to satisfy the 6 hour stress test.

Just keep temps in check. They don't increase that much when you just increase the core clock.

I have a phen.II 6 core@ 2.8Ghz, 6870 ATI Radeon , I have 2--`120m case fans, plus extreme liquid cooling for pc. and 8gb ram.. I want to OC my Graph card. my catalyst control dosn't have auto tune or auto test. I went ahead and set the clock speed from 900Mhz to 940Mhz and my memclock speed from 1050mzh to 1140mzh. is this going to work or is there a beter combo that i can set for my Card? I am totally new at this so any suggestions would be appreciated. I am running everything on this manually Please let me know.

Every card and chip is different so we can't just say yes it'll work. Follow the guide and you'll find your best settings in one night.

I flashed my HD 6950 from a HIS BIOS to a Sapphire BIOS, just for the TRIXX, and now when I try to change the voltage it doesnt do anything and I am using TRIXX 3.0.4, and Catalyst 11.2

If someone could make me a Sapphire HD 6950 BIOS with unlocked shaders it would be awesome! Thanks!

did you not try using Afterburner or TRIXX before flashing?
