Ati ccc will not downgrade the 6870 to 6850 in x fire..
I guess I will be getting a 6870 then!

Thanks.

got a msi 6870 OC twin frozr recently having a small issue with it


it works fine BUT at time using MSI's default AUTO settings (without afterburner fan profile)

the card hits 90-100C under heavy load but the fans are only going at 50%
obviously i can make my own fan profile but my gripe is... why should i have to create a profile to protect the card from overheating?


anoyone else have this card and issue? or is it just me

It's like that with most of them, the default fan profile either sucks or the companies that sell these cards know something we don't. I use MSI afterburner now (was using sapphire's Trixx but when running Xfire the fan profile will only work with one card) but on certain games like BF-BC2 any 3rd party overclocking software has to be disabled or in the middle of the game you will get a lock up. So I have to open the CCC and run the manual fan controls from there and bump my fans up to like 60% to keep the cards in a good temp threshold. I would like to have the cards automatically do it but mine will stay at 20% speed until the card get's up to the danger levels (or what I think is the danger levels, like 75-80 degrees).

Most people say they do this because they want the cards to be silent, but I think they can handle higher temperatures than we think... I guess someone will have to email the manufacture to find out.

thanks for the reply. i have emailed MSI and will edit my post with what they say.I think their customer service isn't very good but i will keep annoying them till they give a decent reason why they allow gpus to run at 90-100% with only 50% fans running.



anyway heres my dusty soon to be upgraded rig
6870 twin frozr OC

Yeah, I'm waiting to hear what they say...

Why does Noctua make all their case fans brown and Tan? I hear they are pretty good, but I have an all black with neon green and blue rig, I don't think the brown will set things off the right way. lol

I wan't to get dust filters for mine but I'm to lazy to take the fans back out to put them in. the front one for me is a pain because I have to take stuff out to get to it. So for now I just spray it out once or twice a week with the air.
