Hey people. I just got an ASUS HD6870 two days ago, and I did soem OCing last night, but I want to know what you guys think.

Using GPU Tool for the test, GPU-Z for the temperatures and Catalyst Control Center (AMD Overdrive function) for the OC.

Stock:
Core = 915
Memory = 1050
V = 1.05

What I got:
Core = 980
Memory = 1175
V = 1.20

I get 30 to 32 degrees on idle, and I max out at 66 degrees at 93% to 98% usage in GPU Tool. Fan is running at 55%.

I just wanted to know what you think? Should I go higher or leave it as it is?

That's A LOT like how mine came out to be. I just did benchmarks in different settings and found that I'm comfortable at the OC at stock voltage. Might be different for you though. Just test some benchmarks and play some games see where your comfort zone is.

Being its a 6870 1000 on the core may be possible.1175 on memory game stable is awesome.game stable is what counts you can run those stability programs all day they tell you nothing but how good your cooling is.Some people say bc2 is great but I use metro 2033 maxed out and nfs shift maxed out.Ive found that if I can play these games maxed in a warm room for more than a hour and a half im stable.I do this while running fraps to make sure im not throttling.

Why bother with stability programs if you have to game to make sure your stable anyway? (needless stress imo)

For that I check out HWBOT and see what everyone else has put in. There's a lot of search filters you can use to get it as close to your system as possible.

Most use the stability programs because they stress the card beyond what most games do and you can monitor what's going on. I do them to see how well the cooling performs at higher settings, but in gaming, I never see that high of a load and my cards run perfectly. NFS shift works flawlessly at highest settings as well as Dirt2. IMO, id it works fine for your apps, then it's good to go.

Has anyone had any bad experiences with Crossfire and 2 different vendors for their 6850/6870?

I currently have a XFX, however I am in the market for a second. I am pretty much just looking for the best deal on the 2nd card, whether it is open box on the egg, here, or craigslist/ebay. Should I really try and find a matching XFX? (I have been looking at Sapphire and ASUS also)

You can add me to the list of 6870's! Just got this card today as a replacement for my old 5850! So far, so good. Knock on wood!

I'm also using the preview drivers 11.4.
