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