You're using an old version of Afterburner. You need beta 4 or something like that to unlock voltage adjustments for the 68xx series. Beta 6 for the 69xx series.

It should be stable stock at 1000/1250. Is it giving you trouble on stock voltage?

And finally the X4 965 arrived. Was supposed to get the 955, but they messed up. Silly people. Got it for the same price as the 955, so I am good. I guess..

Here's the 3Dmark 11-result. http://3dmark.com/3dm11/445440 (the basic test only. I am cheap.) A LOT better than I had with the X2 250..

Have not OC'd the CPU or GPU yet. Need some better TIM first. Will hunt for some tomorrow. Payday then. yay!

If you guys don't mind I'm not going to read 100 or more pages and will just ask a few questions.

- These cards are more limited by memory speeds than core?
- Is it worth returning a 6870 (if at all possible) and getting a 6950 for gaming at 1680x1050?

I doubt I'm going to be able to return this card, so it's a hypothetical question. From the benchmarks I've seen not even the 6970 is really worth it at 1680x1050 but due to the possible modding of the 6950 I was just wondering.

Strangely enough since reverting back to stock and overclocking at stock voltage I've been able to hit 1010/1150. I will see how far I can go before the GPU needs more power but I'm impressed, maybe it needed to a good burn in.

lapping the proccy?? I figured it wasn't worth it as I'm using the 212+ w/ a sad base.. think I afterall WILL lap it. Shall try to be carefull

To the new 965 !!
Hit 4.0 and temme what temps / volts ? I'm stuck at 3.8 w/ this 955 but the previous 555 unlocked to 4 @ 4.2GHz @ 1.46V so...

Updated unigine score 720p please. w/ normal tess and no AA , everything else default !! Thanks!

No and, probably no.

You can unlock the 6950, so get them before they change that.

Benches are unreal. Will not materialise into good FPSes w/ games at extreme settings anytime soon. Cut back on quallity somewhere and use optimisations and ur 6870 will perform quite well..

A 6950 IMO is worth it--- all the more if you can unlock it.
Anyway its > 5870 so and the 6870 <5870 .. So .. DO IT

And if nothing, dont get rid of your current card- I wish , just wish I had bought the 6870 over the 6850
For:
1. more SPs
2. better mem controller ? unconfirmed
3. Better coolers.. OCing a 6850 to 6870 is possible, but more heat.. inhibits the headroom really.
4. Better card overall??
5. VALUE option vs a 5850 ~ 70 ??

but :
1. Single powa conn FTW !!
2. Milk spilled.

Be happy w/ your purchase. Ur gaming at 1050p. This card is PLENTY .. go for ingame performance, not synthetics..

Synthetics are guiding and benching factors only to be used as a yard-stick. Letting them f* w/ ur mood ( they did mine) is making no headway. OC, and you'll see your card bear a 470 in everything
Hitting 1GHz on the core is good. Go for more !! I'm stuck at 940 -- sad cooling.
Up the volts. BURN in on a GPU ??? Think that translates to something like a BURNT GPU in reality

Your mem clock should hit 1200 ?? Mine's at 1185 . But I can't guarantee anything - your mileage may vary! Also -- Bench incremental mem clocks. At some point the ECC on the ram will slow things down before it goes out of hand and you see artifacts-- A good fallback of around 20 MHz will let your card breathe.

Using OCCT for quick 2-3 minute loops while monitoring temps?? This will truly load your card and give you a GOOD idea of stability.

Updated unigine score 720p please. w/ normal tess and no AA , everything else default !! Thanks!
Installed the proccy, booted up, checked cpu-z. Showed 4.295GHz. Forgot to set everything to auto in the bios before I booted up.. Took about 5mins to BSOD.
Will go for 4.0GHz and beyond next weekend. Using stock cooler now. With CnQ off the idle temps are at 40C. I think that's a little high. Not sure, though..

694p on Unigine..

Edit: ok, so I couldn't wait. http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1601556 OCCTing while I type this. Idle temps at 40C and at full load 63C. Only changed the Bus Speed. Everything else is on auto. And CnQ is off. But, good grief, that fan is loud! Definitely need to throw it away. Will do some reading about OCing the 6850 soon. Have a good feeling about this system right now.

XFX 6870 doesn't like to go higher than 925. Perhaps they get binned pretty hard?
