And is the TIM of the Sapphire 6950 decent, or will it be worth changing it with AS5?

I don't know about the thermal paste and the bottleneck depends entirely on the resolution. At 1280x1024 and lower no CPU can bottleneck a high end video card, regardless of speed, and at super high end resolutions it's the GPU that will bottleneck the CPU. However at 1680x1050 it all depends on the game, as some rely far more heavily on the CPU than on the video card.

Is there a trick or guide to it? I checked the "unlock voltage control" option in afterburner and it's still locked.

And to answer my own question I checked other overclocks at HWBot. There's one OC'd to 1275 memory on air so Imma keep pushing. biggrin.gif

i think you need to download the beta version of msi afterburner.

MSI Afterburner (2.0.0 Beta 6)

I'm at 950/1200. max temps on OCCT were 69deg.
gaming around 50-52deg.
hohoho i want to push it further but i dont want to mess with volts and heats keeping me from going any further tongue.gif


Bah someone already answered your question T_T my bad!

Anyway did it work? Don't forget to restart afterburner after making the changes

Your heat looks fine to me. Still got 15C to go. biggrin.gif

And thanks, no problem. Still +rep you for the effort.

Haven't had a chance to try. I had a 4 hour ordeal with older rig that includes interruptions by kiddos. Will have to try tomorrow instead.

& can i ask you guys a question about driver 11.1 & 11.1a i noticed that after i updated
from 10.12 my idle core clock that used to be 100Mhz now becomes 300Mhz does that change my idle power consumption?

& also i have friend who has MSI 6870 twin frozr II he also updated his driver to 11.1
but his idle core still remains @ 100Mhz + his memory is @ 150Mhz which further confused me cause my idle memory is @ 300Mhz that remained the same even with the driver change.. thanks to those who can answer my question smile.gif

Yes it would be fine I think.
My top card gets max 74~75c on heavy gaming/benchmarking. The 2nd card doesn't get nearly as hot tho, it floats around 50c max smile.gif

edit:I'll switch the cards to see if it'll make any difference (different heatsink).

Yes it's on stock but their black edition cards. Their voltages vary from 0.95v to 1.15v load (core820 / memory4400). Ambient temp is ~15c.

I also noticed my idle clocks went from 100/300 to 300/300 since I updated to 11.1a.

Check it out.
I have profile "1" set to default 775/1005 (2D Profile)
I have profile "2" set to OC'd 950/1200 (3D Profile)
but if you check the graph..my clocks are actually at 300/300 when i'm idling. confused.gif

Thanks for the rep!
I'd love to push this baby to it's absolute limit but I don't want to decrease the life span even more hehe.. I'll definitely buy another one and CFX when the price is right, for now, it plays all the games i want in awesome settings.
