I'm using my old AC Accelero S1 on Sapphire 6870. I've used Furmark, ATITool and GPUTool for stability and artifact scanning and reached 1000/1150 (1.266v) clocks (1 hour test with each of them, 0 errors). Also passed few benchmark tests in loop mode like 3DMark Vantage, Crysis etc. and played so many games with these clock rates for hours. No artifacting, no crashing. But after i read few articles about stability test with OCCT in some topics i gave it a try and after 30secs it started artifacting. I checked my temps in GPU-Z while running OCCT and they were like;
GPU Temp #1: 65c
GPU Temp #2: 105c
GPU Temp #3: 85c
It seems artifacting starts after Temp #2 reaches 100-105c above. This Temp #2 is also showing highest values in every test and games but never passes 75-80c. Should i keep using my card like that or replace the old cooler with Accelero S1? I really don't know cause Accelero S1 gave me far better temp values in every condition except that GPU Temp #2.
Sorry about my bad english. Btw here are the pics of my card with Accelero S1;
