Sometimes it's a shame we can't down rate people, because either this was a troll or just some fanboy comment. If it was a joke it comes off as a very bad one.

LoL -- don't care.. Poor chap!

Ignore the troll.

DDR3 is only supported at 1333MHz but it can be OC'd in the BIOS, meaning the 2000MHZ memory you bought is useful.
Too cheap to buy 2000MHz memory :/ Am running 3 banks now and that means even 1600 is a bit of an issue- instead running 1333 cl9 at cl6 and testing as I type smile.gif Infact, 1333CL6 is giving me better results and benches than 1600cl9 !! Am running a C3 rev. and probably, using a better memory kit would enable ~ cl7 @ 1600-- that would be ideal, but I'm, stuck with value ram and performance ram :@ What a bummer--- But still a, thoroughly impressed with my cl6 achievement !! current timings ( not even close to finished) -- 6-8-8-22 2T

NB overclocking increases bandwidth and throughput, increasing performance. I have noticed an increase in FPS and smoothness in games when I run several games/applications simultaneously. I went from 2000 to 2600 last week and am glad I did, for one my BOINC WU's complete faster, which proves there's performance to be gained.
That's what I've been talking about! Am at 2.6 Myself-- working to get 2.8 running soon!

You are dead against overclocking of the NB without actually understanding it, while it's true you won't experience a massive boost, it is enough, as far as I see it.
LOL< read the last three pages and you'll see, THATS ALL I've BEEN TALKING ABOUT !! thumb.gif The NB OC is the single biggest boot ( after maybe an SSD --- but the NB OC IS FREE!!! --one can give his PC !

For questions regarding North Bridge, memory and CPU speeds please post in the correct AMD section.
Aww well, am well aware of the fact that I've taken over this thread.. smile.gif
But you see... NB, RAM, CPU OC's five us PH 2 owners better gfx performance, and that;s what it's all about!

Sometimes you're a little hard to understand, which is why I thought you were against NB overclocking. The only problem I have with increasing the NB speed is the added CPU temperature, and that I can't increase mine to over 2600.

The only thing I have come to dislike about my 6870 is it's lack of overclockability. I just can't get past 1000 entirely stable, without applying a lot of Voltage and I can't increase the memory past 1150 either. I was wondering about getting a 6850 but knowing my luck I knew I would get a 'bad' one, so went with a 6870 instead. Love the card, but I can see AMD dropping their price, making me cry. That's always the way it is, you buy something and a month later either its price drops or something new's out.

The same , prices for the 6850 have dropped by 10$ here locally in stores, without any real market influences, and I wonder what they'll be worth in 6 months -- weep +1.

Yikes, maybe that makes my 6870 CFX so much closer to reality!!! Lol so someone's loss is my gain smile.gif

You have a ton of extra SPs to boot and better cooling- Why be upset?? Good hand picked 6870s, the wat i see it, are making it to the xfx black editions , and heck , some even do 1GHz on stock O.O
Oww!

EDIT: Nb speed add to cpu temps ??? :O how where and when ! I want to know biggrin.gif

Bump from 900 to 970 on the core :/ the vapor x is a not go --- settle foe the toxic.. Those prices will fall in a month's time :
1. Nvidia will launch their 560 ( yumm, but 2 little 2 late)
2. Seeing that these cards will be non reference, whats 5 euros for ~ an 8% bump ??

UPDATE : Pricing on the 560 : And I expect custom solutions (MSI... blah blah) to retail higher !

Apparently, pre-orders can already be set for the price of 280.33 Euro

Compare this with <200E for the 6850 :/

First-GTX-560-Results-Leaked-On-Par-with-Radeon-HD-6950-5.jpg

YEAH,, right .. Budget middle -end ? LOOOL "??? NOT -- and outperforming a 6870 by THAT MUCH ??
Where does the 570GTX stand then ?? Or for that matter, the 480 GTX ??
So we can all agree that GF100 fermi was &**!
And how exactly is a 460 so muc hfaster than a 6870 ??? LOLAX xP

It's insane for me paying 280 euro for a gtx 560 eek.gif
And, not the least consider that a occed 6870 will get very close to a 6950 biggrin.gif

ATI IS DEAD! LONG LIVE ATI cheers.gif oops it's called AMD now kookoo.gif

depends on what you call budget or middle.Its more like the bottom of the top.At that price the GTX 560 is going to compete with the 6950 .Cant find pricing on it yet but it may cost more.
The 6950 is $269.99 after MIR on newegg with free shipping.

Nvidia still did a great job they forced new drivers out of amd.
