Any toxic owner here?
I would like to ask about ocing this card. From many reviews I saw online, the 6850 can run at 1ghz core when you bump your core to 1.3v
However, my toxic can not go pass 935mhz on the core (even when I bump vcore to 1.3, min stable vcore for this speed is 1.2v). Anything beyond will cause lock ups. My load temp stays at around 82 when oced (ambient temp is about 30C).
Is there anything I could do? or I am just unlucky to this core?
thanks

Question, does the voltage always stay the same when you adjust it with afterburner or does it revert to 0.095 when it goes to 2D clocks then jump to whatever you set it at for 3D? I hate using software to oc my cards but untill I can adjust it in the bios I dont have a choice. I did see there was a "test" bios that gives you 1.45v but I think thats a tad to much for me so Im steering clear of that one.

Yes the voltage does stay high.but the idle temps aren't as bad as when the clocks didn't drop.

I dont mind software for overclocks but would love to make a custom fan profile in the bios.I have no idea how to modify bios so any info would be great. I think fan rpm should depend on temps and the auto setting doesn't ramp up speed fast enough for me.afterburner fan controls would be great but it only works on one card.

Ok I might have to give that a try when I get home, I'm running 940/1175 stock right now through CCC since it finally down clocks to normal 2D clocks like its supposed to.
Modding the bios is very easy but there is no support for the 68XX series yet, yeah you can load the bios in RBE change some thing but it doesn't stick once you flash them. Perfect example is the what I was referring to earlier, how the fan profile wouldn't work when I only changed that, but it did when I changed the voltage in the bios as well. The only problem with that was the driver not recognizing the cards then, even after I reinstalled them. Hopefully support for these cards gets added soon.

You're just unlucky with that. But still, a 6850 at 935mhz is pretty damn good for the price. Try upping the memory, it helps a lot.

Yes, both of them are overclocked... With a normal fan profile, my top card goes up to 82*C when stressed at 100% for long periods of time, and the fan noise is bearable at 40-50% though it is definitely noticeable when you're not gaming.

My bottom card stays pretty cool though.

That's good to know. I'm seriously considering going CF with my 6870. I'll just wait a month or so to see if there will be a driver update that will boost the current 6970 performance. If not, I'll either do 570 or 6870 CF.

Thanks, that worked like a charm. Though Afterburner's lower limits are not as low as the default idle clocks of 100MHz core and 300MHz memory. The lowest Afterburner goes is 385MHz core and 500MHz memory. Much better than running full speed all the time but not quite as good as the stock idle clocks. Is there anyway to remove these restrictive lower limits?

I usually don't even install CCC because there are better overclocking programs out there. Also would CCC have the same overclocking cap that Afterburner has, except without a work around? Just correct me if I'm wrong, as I haven't used CCC much. Also with the Afterburner method gonX mentioned you can set different voltages for 2D and 3D. Seems like a better solution than using both CCC and Afterburner like you are doing.

When you use Afterburner to set the clocks, by default, the voltage will stay the same all the time (it won't lower during idle like normal). Though if you manually set the 2D and 3D profiles in Afterburner like gonX mentioned, it will go to whatever voltage you have each set at, so you can have the voltage set lower for the 2D clocks. To do this, click the Settings button in Afterburner, go to the Profiles tab, and there you can set what profiles to use for 2D and 3D.
