Hi, I would love to know temperatures of gpu temp #3 using gpu-z of other 6850 owners (I myself was early adopter of asus 6850 which had no vram heatsinks). I can OC to 995/1250 with no artifacts with 1.2V (lucky me), but if game is really intensive vram shots up to 100+C degrees (that is if gpu utilization is hovering around 98% all the time) and not long after that I get either system lock up or at best case - driver stopped responding. I think that is high vram temperature since it I can reproduce lock up - when VRAM temperature skyrockets towards more than 100 the magic happens .

The most funny thing when running msi kombustor/occt even at stock clocks all temps are around 65 degrees max while gpu temp #3 (vram?) is reaching 95/96 degrees. That is NOT nice to see at all.

Any other fellow owners of not cooled vram can declassify their vram temps at stock and OC?

If that problem repeats what are solutions? using http://www.computerbase.de/preisvergleich/a340457.html or http://www.mwave.com/mwave/skusearch...iteria=AA77249 ?
Since where I am living none of these are available ( eastern Europe) Ebay solutions would be preferable. I also have another option -Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo Pro - it costs to me 50$ and it has vram cooling modules in the package, thing is I'm totally fine with other temps except vram (all are around 65 at max load with fan at 45%)

Thank you for your time

heat is the main issue when it comes to stability.your just not stable and if your ram is getting that hot your not going to be at those clocks.air cooling and heat sinks will help but yor talking about 100c + to cool that you need a waterblock.lol lots of people including myself have aftermarket coolers and its very rare to get 1250 game stable.with the coolers I just got (im still overclocking) im at 920 / 1120 both cards stock voltage so far.My temps were never that high on ram it was usually within 5c of my gpu your pushing way too hard or there is some thing wrong.
the card that gets hotter can also overclock better it can get to 1000 with just v1.21 and 85c after 15mins of furmark.the cooler card requires v1.31 to hit 1000 and only gets to 75c after 15 mins.
my coolers are not the best but I can run them 100% if I need and cant here it above my case fans .the best part was the price $35 each.

Thank you. It's not like I play with that kind of temperatures, that was just for test runs. Thing is your vram temperature is within 5 degrees of your gpu temperature while mine at stock is solid 30+ degrees of difference . There are no dust, airflow is above decent, I just dont get it - am I the only one getting that high vram temperatures?

And yet again - I am from Europe. Shipping from USA is just... You know... Will cost me as much as the product itself and then there are customs

get the Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo Pro its a better cooler then mine but for me wasn't worth the extra money for you it might be cheaper considering shipping and the hassle.
What are your temps stock in furmark or kombustor?
EDIT:just saw the pic that seems way to high have you modded the card in anyway ?

Proud owner here as of last Christmas.

Ditched my crossfired 4850s because of flickering in BC2. Awesome card and my frames went up a little bit. Maps load way faster too, I get 20 seconds of adjusting my load out before the round begins. With the 4850's, by the time the Map loaded, people were already spawned and playing and I still had to choose my squad and weapons.


-Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 ftw

I have not modded card in any way or form... airflow is good, I have temperature sensor probes and there are no heat pockets around video card (around 20 degrees ambient temperature). Any thoughts about a reason why I may RMA a card, with these temps I'm not sure how long it will last.

If you can RMA do it .search this thread I dont remember anyone else having this problem.there was a issue of gpu #2 getting hot after changing to aftermarket coolers (I dont have this problem)and there is a problem with vrm's going 100c + on some cards in occt.
