[Official] AMD Radeon HD 6850/6870 Owners Thread - Page 234

post #2331 of 6939
Just got my XFX 6870. OC'd it to 975/1175 on stock voltage, would like to push to 1ghz but there doesn't seem to be voltage control option in Afterburner. Looks to be a reference design. The factory cooler kills me, way too loud.

I'm thinking of replacing it with an Accelero Twin Turbo Pro GPU cooler, is it going to be enough to keep this card cool and quiet? I had a Zalman V1000 on my 4890 and it was silent at full speed compared to this thing at 40%! I'd plan on using the reference cooler back plate to cool the VRAM and other bits.

Thinking of adding a second one down the line, probably summer time.

These are great cards, noise is completely bearable even @ 100% fan speed on both cards at the same time. At stock clocks I like to keep the fans at 40% 24/7 and the noise is non-existant.. after hours of Bad Company 2 max temps never go over 60c. For overclocking I'm able to get both my cards up to 920c/1150mem without adding any voltage but due to crossfire my temps can almost touch 70c.

I originally had my heart set on Cayman 6900 series but after they released they didn't appeal to me as much as I anticipated. So I looked back at the 6850 and saw greatness. In crossfire their scaling was incredible beating 5850 crossfire and even 5970 while consuming much less power (requires 1x 6-pin). For $320 after 2x $20 rebates I thought it was the best bang for my buck.

Hope this helps out your decision.

That's much better than my current 6850. It gets to 70C+ on stock everything, even with a 1:1 fan profile set up. Would it be possible for you to make a video comparing different fan settings, like 25%, 40%, 60%, 75%, 100%?

Sorry but I don't have a good video recorder to do so.. if I did though I'm sure the noise levels would be too low to capture it anyway. Put it this way, anywhere between 0-40% you can hear almost nothing, 45-70% is the range where you start to hear the fan significantly rev up from lowest to loudest (still very quiet though), and anywhere between 71% and 100% all sound pretty much the same.

Here's some links to reviews that should help you get a better idea:

first question..my first GPU reached as high as whooping 97c when running furmark :S
IMO this card shouldnt be that hot.. cooler is not a reference one

ambient 28, what should i do lower to the temps ? theres only 1 slot spacing between the two pcie 16x slots on the MB. I'm using CM Elite 310 (i know it sucks) with 2 intake fans from front and side panel both running @1200 rpm

shall i change the casing to better one or any ideas ? If i need to change, which casing would u guys recommend? my budget is not more than $100...

Thanks in advanced

THE HAF 912 IMO is really a studrier cm335 w/ better looks outside. And of course a few mid-range bonus features.
Look @ the CM scout- really cool when you have to move it around- and a joy to mod. Should get one fro about 70-ish in the market, or the 690 2 advance/plus if u dnt need some stupid features the 690 2 has ! Like that external sata mount!
