It just gets worst the less your cards are stressed.

All of your charts back this up or are within the margin or error.

To your question why would you get a 6870 when you know 6850 overclock so well. my opinion
And I would not get a new cpu with bulldozer right around the corner .
As I said before all this you need a better monitor
Not planning a new CPU right away- but I'd like to wait for the AM3+ and 32nm refresh before I think constructively. However, I wonder if these console ports will ever get tuned to run more efficiently :/

I'm planning a 3x900p setup in a few months and then a 6870 down the line with maybe a 32 nm proccy next year.. wishful thinking

But what I'v learned , I should not be worried as the CPU will now be stressed less than the GFx .. cool. Sounds sound to me

BTW- MSI site shows two, Twin Frozr II R6870 and Twin Frozr II R6870-OC. Has anyone ever seen the non-OC version of this card? (core clocked at 900 vs. 920)

Mine is OC version, though it wasn't advertised as such. Didn't find out until I received it.
I ordered my first MSI AMD 6870 Twin Frozr II from Newegg on 12/19 and ordered the normal one, they don't even offer the OC, yet the OC was shipped to me. I hope they do the same for my second one that was shipped 1/14 and send the OC version. Can't wait to crossfire since this will be my very first time with two video cards in one rig ever!

Also can't wait for the final release of Afterburner that allows me to voltage tweak my AMD 6870. Any suggestions on a good, safe overclock, core/memory/voltage I could use for any other owners that know what thier doing? LOL because I don't. LOL

Exactly what happened with mine, that's why I asked, and why I still wonder if anyone has gotten a non-OC version. Let us know if your second one is OC as well.

Phenom II's suck at handling multi-gpu set up's

not a fanboy. but this is truth,

Phenom's can choke on multi gpu set up's much easier then core i7's.

Unless u got a 4.0GHZ OC.

i also have a Phenom II 955 C2 @ 3.9GHZ at 1.55V it is the original relase model. so it cant oc as the newer C3's. but it chokes on 3X GTX 280's. my core i7 can handle them easily.

You have a c2.. lol , How's ur memory holding up ?? Running your ram @ what timings / freqs ?

Btw, My p2 955 C3 goes to 3.8 GHz @ 1.4V, and anything above that- funny crashes (instant reboots) on P95-64. Even if I go up to 1.55 :/ WILL NOT stay stable beyond 3.8... sad though--- I'd expect a crash at least.. Simply reboots

Boots into windows , p95 will give no errors, and tada- reboots anywhere b/ 10 seconds and 10 minuts

HAAALP!

ASUS EAHD6850 owners;

What are temps and noise like? I might be picking one up for my Sandy Bridge build. If not, the MSI GTX 460 Hawk is lookin' mighty fine
