I would say no but It really depends on how high you want 3d mark scores.I only overclock in benches and metro 2033 other than that no need.I mostly play nba 2k11 and all you get for overclocking is more heat and power consumption.

Now I manage to get 56° in Furmark and stock speeds (with fans at about 2000 rpm) cool.gif

On the other hand I manage to overclock my videocard getting 980/1150 stable with 1.26v (I know it's not quite a lucky card, but I couldn't get first more than 960/1120 stable with the same voltage) and get 61° max on full load in Black Ops (with all settings at maximum & morphological AA) and cooler fans on min. (about 1400 rpm) as well as the other system fans Ultimate SILENCE

AHHHH it's SO tempting!
The only problem now is Crossfire. That cooler takes 3 slots, so yeah, luckily my motherboard is full of PCIe, but still that's something I have to consider...

Thanks anyways, +rep.

Got my Sapphire 6850 from NewEgg, finally got my pc finished. Running 850/1100 right now, and I'm sure I could go higher on the gpu but I'll probably leave it. However, it looks like most of you are running these cards in crossfire and now I'm tempted to pick up another.

P.S. Love this forum. You guys are really smart and I read a ton here before I built my new rig. Props to all you guys!

I won't be happy until I've reached 1050 at least.

UPDATE

My 6850 goes at full load (100% as monitored by GPU-Z)at 43A and then the game crashes (Video driver has stopped responding ERROR) on my 30A Rail 500W PSU.............hats off to ASUS for biulding cards which take in 43A at full load.......WOW
That is exactly what is happening to me at the moment. When you got your new PSU, did it work correctly?

Its really luck of the draw with these asus cards got them both at the same time and at stock clocks and voltage at 100% load one card gets to 38a the other 43a.the card that pulls more current is hotter load and idle(tried switching the slots and psu connecters its the card for sure).

to fix my issue ive removed my physx card (gtx260) my tv card (8500gt) one of my three hdd's and a powered ide to sata adapter.

I have a pretty good 850w psu so if you plan on any future upgrades a 400w is not going to cut it.

@Mr.Bones

do not recommend thermaltake psu my brothers 850w is on its way out.after overvolting his gtx470 it went into protection and cut power to his system .after turning the psu off than back on and returning to old settings it smells like somthing is burning and it cuts power randomly.

I manage to reach 1000/1200 @ 1.293v on my Sapphire HD 6850. I saw the review of this card on another website and that is the OC the reviewer managed on his card too.

Is the voltage too high or ok?
