I thought so too, but checking CPUID hardware monitor, it shows the voltage being 0,90 even when I run ungine heaven, and if I apply the 1.1 it will always show the card being at 1.1 voltage even in idle. Maybe a sensor bug, since you cannot actually modify the voltage of the card by software.

I guess i'll give it a try to the lastest amd drivers
post #242 of 352
Well the sensor is somewhat funny - it shows it being 1.1 even after successfully volt-modding my card.

yeah when you leave tray tools at 0.9 while using the OC settings manually and try to overclock it to something higher than the bios settings it will crash! but when you change the voltage to 1.1 or mod your own volt settings with the setting it has you can go much higher without it bugging out and crashing.

my answer to you ramako is to get a bigger PSU or try leaving your ram settings as is. i got mine stable to a T now at 1020/1220 without bugs laggs or glitches in almost all my games cept F1 2010 because that game does not like Overclocked GPU's at all.

and hey ramako try leaving your case open while overclocking to get a little bit more air flow to the gpu, and make sure you change the voltage in ATI tray tools and hit apply before overclocking your ram and cpu. i think it might have something to do with the drivers im using but idno tray tools is funky so i use sapphire trix now instead of tray tools i can get a higher clock without it being clocked in idol, saves alot of electricity becase this card OC eats alot of power from when its not!

good luck to all the 5670 card holders with there overclocking! im thinking of gettting this in the next few days with my new mobo im getting http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...295&CatId=3669

Then and only then will i be actually happy with my fps rate when i overclock that bad boy!

Good luck If only I could fit it in my case - biggest I can go is a 5770/6770 or 560 at a squeeze. But when I get some money I shall But like rocking mid-range - and extreme overclocking

Well, the PSU might seem like its quite short, its only a 450 W, but adding up , amd phenom x4 (160 W MAX shows CPUID hardware) , + gpu which tdp is 63 W, lets just say overclocked goes to 100 w (improbable), I still have plenty of room as energy is concerned.

Also, the gpu overclocked temp is quite good. I don't think that should be an issue?
post #246 of 352
psu is more than just wattage ...
for overclocking you need it to be stable with minimal ripple

Also that 160W TDP - becomes more when you overclock. And then you forget to add 15W a hard disk. I thought my 460W wasn't the problem - upgraded to a 550W and its running great.

Yes, of course I know it is more than wattage. It has active pfc, and 85 % efficency. The 160 W is already with the overclock. My cpu TDP is 125 w actually (phenom x4 b55, unlocked one), running at 3400 mhz, black edition so multiplier is not locked.

Roughly, it should be 300 W the total usage of my computer.

But, just wondering, if I do the linx + furmark test at the same time (one stresses the graphic card, and the other one the cpu), I may find out if it's PSU problem, right? It would draw the maximum amount of power from the graphic card and the cpu, so if the computer crashes while doing those tests, I may think of getting a new PSU.

You guys think this test would be reliable?
post #249 of 352
Maybe. Best advice I say would be to borrow a PSU.

Well PC may not crash, but would definitely be unstable.

EDIT: I'm gonna try get hold of a multimeter and try measure how many watts this card pulls when overclocked to this extreme, but I'm thinking its more than the 120W max allowed from a PCIe slot. So peoples, no doing this on cheapy boards. Quality boards only.

Even tho there really is no way of telling how much wattage this card eats away while being overclocked i am pretty sure that it is your PSU and your current system settup.

Me and courage both got dramatic results when switching to a higher psu, i know it sounds silly thats what courage said until he tried it and BOOM he got the amazing score's he is sitting at right now which are insaine by the way courage GOOD JOB MAN **** is crazzy, besides that point

and ramako all systems are different so you might find better or worse results from us even if you meet the the same specs as us, just depends, ive realized that my mobo eats nothing compared to the rest of yorus, since my mobo is a micro mobo and is tiny as hell in my gigantic black widow from thermal take. that might also be the problem, who knows.

you should try doing things different like me and courage took 2 different ways to reach our scores his being benching his scores and mine testing the scores out on every different game i have using CMD, which took twice as long i am sure but i bet i still havent reached my max scores but i believe the difference between our scores aren't worth all the trouble of those annoying trial and errors until i finally get a stable score i can live with.

but without me rambling on about me and courage's awesome scores you should also try keeping your CPU at stock speeds while overclocking your GPU that seemed to be my down fault when i was trying to overclock my gpu with my ****y diablo tek 550 watt psu, and then my buddy needed a 800 watt for his 6900 series gpu and gave me his mastercooler 650 watt for FREE HELL YEA. lol and i could finally reach my scores while my cpu was overclocked to 3.5 with my 7850 BE with the mutiplyer at 17.5 and 50+ watt increase. then when i tested and tested to get my scores i realized that my old psu was the down fall of everything i had problems with and when i suggested it to courage he said the same thing your saying until he tried it and BOOM there are his amazing scores right in front of you,

so i suggest going to best buy and buying a 600+ psu and just trying it out for a couple of days and see if you see it helping you out, and if it works then take the psu back and get your money back, Then go to newegg or Tiger direct (i suggest tiger because of there deals and cheap ass pricess and easy and quick shipping based of countless experiences from them i give the 5 stars) and get a 600 watt psu or higher and be done with the pains that come from crashing your pc over and over again!

i also recomend you making sure that you did the pencil mod correctly because i did it wrong the first time and i saw a little bit of increase but not near as much as i am seeing today! and make sure your getting enough direct air flow to your gpu not just air arround it i mean DIRECT AIR FLOW on the back of the card. get a small fan and try to jerry rigg it to blow right on it.

i wish the best of luck to you but like i said all pc's are different and you might not see the same results as me and courage have ive seen some awesome scores but i take it me and courage are the only ones to get these types of scores without artifacts and stability. only because we are persistent as **** and well i am poor as **** dont know about him but this card was only 15 bucks for me and even that put me back lol didnt have smokes for a week lol

also courage i am having problems with my acutally ddr2 ram, there suppose to be clocked at 660 and 800 mhz but my 1gb is clocked at 333 mhz and my 2gb is clocked at 440 mhz and i am clueless to what to overclock and ive looked and looked for tuts but i cant find any. do you think you could help me out overclocking them and setting the correct parramiters without frying my precious hard ware that i cant afford to replace right now considering im getting a new mobo and gpu but keeping my ram and cpu. just private message me if you could please i would appreciate the help very much soo i just want to get all the speed i can get out of my rigg before i upgrade it to see weather or not i should spend the money.

HELLS YEAH 5670 this card is a beast and i would have bought this card for full price if i knew what it could do!

scores currently at 1020/1220 100% fan and 3d in CCC set to high quality.
