If your not using reference cards it pulls a great deal of heat out of the case when the cards are at load.I've seen a 5-7c drop in load temps on both cards and there is no longer a hot spot just above my cards.It shown in the last pic.

That's a good idea, thanks man.

Hey guys, my latest Sapphire 6870 card that I got from Newegg came with 2 games! Deus EX, and Dirt 3! I already had Dirt 3 so I gave the other to my little brother as an early Christmas gift. I'm looking forward to Deus EX, it kinda has a Crysis look to it. Oh, and the card came with the blue outline instead of the silver (it's not the Flex addition either).

That's $100.00 bucks worth of games or free, so I paid $75.00 for the card, nice!

Oh, does the Non reference Sapphire 6870 have the same cooling as the vapor X model? it looks the same...

Can someone help me in OCing my powercolor 6870
post #4088 of 6939
I bet you can bump it up to 940 or 950 core clock, and 1150 mem clock, with no voltage increase with no problems, you don't have to start there you can take it slow, Check youtube for overclocking the 6870, there are plenty videos... Then go into settings and adjust your fan profile, the stock one doesn't kick in until the card gets really hot (at least that's how it is on the sapphire ones.

I wish they would add voltage control to the CCC, and make it so you can set your own fan profile there... basically they should mimic the MSI Afterburner software so that I don't have to start that up all the time.

When I'm playing BFBC2 I have to use the CCC, disable crossfire, and turn off afterburner (so no custom fan) because it crashes in multiplayer. They really need to fix that.

I've had my xfx 6870 for about a month and it's a great card, CF it today too since I got an awesome deal on the second card.

Liked the dual fan XFX 6870 I have in my HTPC so much, that I picked up two for crossfire to test in my gaming rig. Great cards for the $$. Currently OC'd to 1000/1175 @ 1.23v using Trixx. Have tested them up to 1050/1200, but needs lots more voltage to do it stable. So sticking with 1000Mhz for daily use.
