what are the most common 5970 issues? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Yeh, I bricked one 5970 trying to update the bios, the DOA replacement still had the old bios on it. Hoping the replacement on the way will have the new one on there.

I was a little weary when I got mine, but nothing but great results so far.

My first Diamond from Frys was DOA and my Sapphire worked for 2 days until one GPU would not go off idle. I don't know if it would have been fixed, I was too frustrated and gave up.

I will say that the 2 days the the 5970 worked I was 100% impressed. It was easy to see the improvement over a 5870. I want another one and I know that I just had bad luck.

People love to blame me when I tell this story but I have had at least 5 5870's and as many 5850's and 5770's with no issues ever. I hope the next single chip top end ATI card is as fast as the 5970.

BTW, I have noticed that there are no more issues getting a 5970, they are everywhere. What is going on, are new cards coming out?

I had an issue with under clocking in 2d. One of the cores would under clock to 125mhz. I changed it to stay at 400mhz when in 2d. I got the info from a post here. Can't find it now though.
