VR001 is a heatsink kit that Arctic Cooling sells. lol. So you'd have to buy VR001 on top of TTP. Good thing VR001 is only $5-6.

I noticed that during Vantage my Gpu Usage sometimes falls around 70%... I thought it should be 99%/100% during the whole benchmark.

Don't you think there's something wrong?
Unstable overclocks cause bad performance.

exactly. hence why i asked if he was checking for 100% stability before running 3dmark.

its like giving your car bad gasoline. will it run? sure, but how well will it run as opposed to good gas?

I've noticed a lot of people have 6870s, but only a few have 6850s. This makes me sad because I'm part of the minority.

But I don't think anyone has 6850 CFX. Lol.
I'll probably get a 6900 when they come out and I want more power.

Fear not! for I am here. I just bought a Gigabyte 6850 today! Its installed, I'm just waiting on my ram to come in next week so I can see if my new rig works or if I have to problem solve head aches away.

I went for the 6850 over the 6870 for 4 reasons listed below in no particular order:

-price,
-crossfire later when I get into newer games (I'm still thinking L4D2 is new)
-low power consumption (want to go crossfire with 750w PSU, this gives me a bit of leeway)
-XFX black edition PSU is semi modular, and has 2 6/8 pin wires in its ponytail, and in the attempt at keeping a reasonably clean look to my mid size case, I figured using both of those for 2 seperate GPU's would be nicer than using 4 cables for 2 6870's.

Anyway I forgot to make a sign saying I <3 Overclock.net next to it, but I'll do that tomorrow! For now, see this as my evidence, if not

I'm pretty sure my OC is stable: 15min Gputool stable + 10min furmark stable. :/
I lowered the clock, same thing.

But the problem seems to be my CPU actually: I OCed the NB to 2600 and now I get 17K

O_o

I'll continue to study the problem, because for some reason my mobo's NB is unoverclockable (anything above the default values will make the computer crash during Intel Burn Test). So I can't just live the NB that high.

Any ideas?

For those of you wondering about the arctic cooling twin turbo pro, it does fit, and vr001 is a heat sink set for it, but the only heatsinks you really need are the ones for the vrm's out of that pack. The problem with the vrm's on the 6870 is that you can't lay a heatsink flat across the vrm's, you have to put an individual heatsink on each vrm, or find a way to mod the stock heatsinks so that it has little arches when going from one vrm to the next, just like on the stock vrm heatsink.

Have any of you tried the Tessmark Tessellation benchmark, its kind of neat..

Check it out:
