That's exactly why I went for the 6850 instead. Much more OC headroom, therefore much more bang for the buck. I like my 6850 so much I just bought another one

Well I don't have crossfire as an option and I'm looking for something to outperform my old 5850 @ 1000/1200.

Then don't look at the 6000 series, as it is more of a fine tuning of 5000 series with the 6800's or next generation architechture prototypes (think 4770) with the 6900 series. In the end, 6000 series is marginal improvement over 5800 series, and would nearly be a side-grade (but a nice upgrade over 4000 series). Best wait for the 7000 series as it will come with a die shrink and perfected shader architecture. I would either save your money or get another 5800 series card to crossfire.

I don't have my 5850..."former" is the word for it. And like I already said, crossfire isn't an option. I don't even have anything other than onboard video so I'll be getting something soon. Probably a GTX 560 when it launches.

I HATE STOCK VGA COOLING --- the noise is ONE thing, temperatures, another. But hey .. used an Accelero s1 rev.2 w/ my NV 260 and despite falling 15C loaded, it died in a month --- bad power---A Glacial Power 650W true power ( 2x8 pin pcie ) -- my bad.

Picked up a new 6850 a year later---- well well well -- loved the single 6-pin power Going to CFX it w/ a 6870 down the line.
Regarding that--
then the 6850 will be on a 4x lane ( my mobo the m4a785 Asus does 16x + 4x) Will that goof things up ??

Secondly, the heat on this card is stupid. I correct myself , the cooler is stupid .. for MSI ripping off an asus design --- hey, POLISH the HS man, and it may just work !!
"Just a heads up on anyone that orders this 6850. XFX put a void if removed sticker on two of the screws for the heatsink. What the hell. Now I can't take off the cheap thermal crap on there and put some as3 without voiding the warranty."

So I'm using the Coolermaster Thermal Fusion 400 -- had it lying around for a while now --- gives good results on my PH 2 @ 3.8 @ 1.41V ... so hey , went ahead and used it -----

The Deltas --- no kidding :") ---- and right into my first Boot
IDLE :: from 36-> 30 fan at idle :_)
LOAD (OCCT) 2 MINs from 92 -> 82
OCCT >2 mins ---- stock FAIL(>94 and I panicked) --10 minutes new TIM ->85 YO!!!

OK ,, so I'm running 925, 1185 @ 1.193V gonna push my card now

Hey ,its NO AS5 (looks like ass arctic silver 5).. I'm sure I haven't heard the end of it!!!! But spreads easy and no curing time!

All right ! I've been through EVERY single post so far --- thats >200 pages in 3 days and 2 nights w/ a few (ok. many) hours of CS and COD7 thrown in !

I rather like what I see..

FYI --- I have the MSI OC 6850 that I nabbed cheaper than the XFX .. XFX of late in my country (INDIA) -- Lifetime warranty and that nasty MOH -- more of a gimmick.. has failed. As simple as that.. Cheapo components and baaaad cooling and locked clocks... RLLY???
http://www.hardwarezone.com/product-.../104604/page:2
http://assets.hardwarezone.com/node/msitt.jpg

Not into benching.. I do enjoy OCCT only

Right, So lastly , wazzup w/ LAPPING THE HS ??? I did it w/ great caution on my CM hyper 212+ and ohh did I love it, but this vga heatsink is 2 big to wanna play w/ it. I do think it'd produce splendid results.. Ideas?

Btw, I could just reuse my accelero s1 .... What say ?

FOR a completely incoherent post--- lets go with these :
1, HOW do u like my OC'd Temps w/ stock (msi) cooler and 1.193V ?
2, Shld I lap the heatsink ? I HATE HEATPIPES_-- scary if they rupture- oh the thought of it.
3, Shld I just reuse my accelero s1 rev.2 ?? I'll need to do some cooling for the VRMs separately!
4, MayB 1st post in this forum :_ )) HI Y'all !!
5, Isn't benchin overrated ?? I'd simply go w/ custom ATT profiles per game for acceptable performance. Stability w/ higher clocks = greater perf ?? Other than the ECC on the dd5 , I get it.
6, Shld i clock my memory higher than 1200 ?? Does overhead increase on upping core voltage?? Am at 1185 rite now @ 1.193 or 1.149 volts..
7, I plan on a 19x3 eyefinity setup -- TN PANELS Have one (900p) as of now.. Shld I go with the above or is eyefinity overrated? Option #2 is simply a 23in along with my current 19 Play fps rpg and sim games..

THANKS A lot for the effort if u got this far

IM GOING NINJA

Hi guys,

i've got 2 x XFX HD 6850 in crossfire 8x 8x

i could OC only via Catalyst Control Center to overdrive limits (very poor, 875/1250 at least for core) and voltage is not

but if i use tools such as TRIXX and Afterburner, if i just set 1 mhz up or down any setting and click on APPLY the pc freezes instantly causing manual reboot

how can i fix it ?

Thank you for your help
