well. for the 8x/8x mode is better to not go in crossfire/sli with 580/6970. more and bigger frame drops in moments with big action. but still, you will not see that very often (or even if you will see that. drivers are getting better and better fot cf/sli, looks like they found a solution for lower bandwidth from 8x/8x mode)

you can crossfire hawk with twin frozr 6870.

why people dont buy it? its quite new model and many people already bought twin frozr

Lol thanks for the fast reply. I was just wondering about single card 580/6970 vs x-fire 6870's on 8x/8x. But if it works. then that will be my future upgrade path Maybe I can even sell my twin frozr II for some $ and get a hawk... it is cheaper at the moment with the rebate lol.

ive tried both 8x/8x and x16/x16 on xfire 6850 and there is a small difference in benchmark scores but its not anything you can see.the difference is so small its not worth talking about.At the time I had x4 gpus and after raising my nb/pci-e voltage the scores were in the margin of error.If your system is fast enough for x8/x8 to be a problem it wouldn't matter because you would be able to run any game at any setting.Now on the other hand if benchmark scores are what matter to you then it makes a difference, however small.

I just bought one and my pc kept shutting down after 5 min of playing WoW in Ultra.

So I Downloaded GPU-Z and...



What the hell is wrong? Is it my PC refrigeration?

My CPU temperatures seem fine...



Is my graphics card defective?

Please fill out your system specs so that people can help you out. You are even using a Q6600 like I do. Is it overclocked to?

I'm just a lurker here but even I can help you out if you have given your complete PC specs.
post #3007 of 6939
Sorry I'm totally stressed out first I thought it was the power supply so I bought a Corsair CX500 and now this still happens, jeez....

Actually I don't have anything overclocked in my computer, the specs are:

Processor: Q6600 Intel
Motherboard: Asus P5K
RAM: 3GB DDR2
Power Supply: Corsair CX500
Graphics Card: Radeon HD6850

One interesting thing... Right after my pc shut down because of the 105ºc in the GPU I put my hand on it and it didn't seem that hot AT ALL. It was a little bit hot but I could keep my hand in there for as long as I'd want, and I don't think that would happen if it really was at 105ºc...

One thing I'm thinking is maybe the sensor is not good. If my PC temp is more or less at 40ºc why would the graphics card be at 105ºc? It seems exagerate.

Thanks a lot for your help and sorry for my silly questions.

What case are you in?
Is the case in an enclosure in the desk?
When is the last time you've dusted out the case?
What are ambient temps like?
post #3009 of 6939
sounds like a bugged temp sensor.

Or maybe the Heatsink got unseated some how?

I have a crappy HP case and it's not in an enclosure.
I've dusted the case this morning actually.
The ambient temps are around 17ºc.

I opened the side of the case and the idle temps went to 60ºc but in load it goes to 105ºc also...

If it is in fact a bugged temp sensor how can I know that for sure? And how can I fix it? Can I somehow turn off the temperature safety shut down?
