GOD i wish these 6870's had voltage control. These are awesome amazing cards besides that one little fact....which makes them horrible if you like to overclock like i do.

I wonder if it is possible to overvolt this card at bios level, maybe future versions of RBE will implement Gigabyte 6870 OC's bios support as well

Yea its kind of stupid to give a card a huge cooler it does not need and then remove voltage control.

If gigabyte says there is no way to control voltage, is there still any hope?

My understanding is the Gigabyte OC edition 6850's & 6870's do not come with the chip that allows voltage control, so no amount of bios updates will ever allow this.

I was talkin' about the RBE (radeon bios editor) future vers. that will possibly unlock voltage modification via modified bios (not 100% sure however)

whats the quickest way to test an overclock to see if I can push it more?

Whats the best way to know im 100% stable?

P.S. I know 100% stable takes longer and im ok with that but I am not willing to use OCCT for a extended period of time (the temps are not safe).Please suggest program and settings not just " furmark maxed ".should I use post fx ,Xtreme burning mode,displacement mapping .does it matter what resolution I use of what level MSAA.

P.S.S.
Im ok if this sounds stupid. you dont know if you dont ask.And if you have the urge to call me a noob feel free as long as it comes with some useful information.lol

Quickest way to test an overclock? Load up Crysis, and make a lot of explosions.

Best way to know if you're 100% stable is to stress the system for at least 12h, but 24-48h is preferred. To stress it, run either OCCT, FurMark max (every setting to as high as it can go. Post fx - yes, Xtreme burning mode - yes, displacement - yes, max resolution, max MSAA. You want a 100% load on the GPU, so you have to push it to the max.
