Count me in guys. Just got a Firepro V4800 yesterday, basically a 1gb workstation version of the 5670. I needed it for engineering CAD work.

The bad thing is, there're absolutely no way to overclock via software. Overdrive won't even start with this card, and Afterburner won't even touch clock frequencies (yes I did the enable unofficialoverclock thing on the cfg file).

So the only thing I could do was a bios edit and re-flash: went from 775/900 stock to 850/1000. Used risky Winflash because my crappy board won't boot from USB drive (to flash in dos). So far, running completely stable as long as temp is kept lower than 72. Only mod is some high quality copper heatsinks on the back memory modules.

What gets me though, is why some struggle with 830/1040 clocks, while one member hit 1000+/1270 on stock volts?

If I really feel adventurous, I may put my Accelero twin turbo on it, which is completely overkill. But it's too risky playing with bios overclocking, all it takes is one step too far, and I won't be able to boot. Can't even save it in dos mode, unless I hook up my ancient floppy drive frown.gif

Hi All,

Nice to see such a long HD 5670 thread here smile.gif

Actually I got a HD 5670 recently to serve in my main PC till I get the 28nm refreshes tongue.gif
Got a slightly 6 mnths used Sapphire 512MB DDR5 one for arnd just 55-60$. Just wanted to know what the best drivers for the HD 5670 series....I heard that the recent Catalyst releases is causing more problems and performance deficiencies in the HD 5000 series frown.gif

Also did one try a Bios mod to get some additional voltage on the Sapphire one....mine one has reference VGPU of only 1.1 V compared to some 1.19 on the MSI etc ....any way to up the voltages...mine is stick at 890 Mhz core/1150 Mhz mem ! Raring to try out some simple pencil mods also may be !

so was your bios voltmod successful ????
I have same card as you ... and I don't have any experience flashing the card.... i did open up the default bios with RBE and it was all gibberish computer symbols not in english frown.gif

need more core voltage on mine ..... its barely stable at 830mhz

Didn't get any link of any simple pencil mod for vGPU ! Mine goes stable at 880Mhz core/1150 Mhz mem for 24X7 setup ! I got it uber cheap for a slightly used one for around 55 USD biggrin.gif for the 512MB Model

I get 890/1190 from mine, been running stable now for months smile.gif And it still runs cooler and quieter than my mates 5770 with a cooler about twice as big. But guess his card is twice as powerful tongue.gif

Its the Asus EAH5670 1GB. No volt-mod. Gonna get some RAM heatsinks for the rear uncooled chips and maybe dare clocking higher tongue.gif Besides I got an 8500GT that I replaced blown caps on to fall back too tongue.gif

I'm stable with a nice 940/1050. However, that is at 1.2 volts instead of stock. I honestly love this card. I even can play bfbc2 @1080p with all high except effects and x16 aa. Msaa is actually completly off though. I get average of 40 fps so I consider this card perfectly capable for playing games. I will however welcome when I can steal my friends old 5770.

hi,

how did you get 1.2volt ?
does your HIS card allow it by software or what other steps did you do ?

Thanks

Would also like information on how to OC or do voltmod. I have messed with RBE but my Sapphire 5670 512 (Redwood) wont let me. I'm wondering if a Bios Flash or a pencil mod is necessary. Stock Clock OC are at 850/1050.
