Thats golden?
iirc all 6850 owners managed to do atleast that atleast both of mine do that
I can get my 6850's at 1Ghz core with a lil voltage bump
If you lower the memory a bit you can prolly push the core a lil more, your on the limits of the 6850 memory chip. That is the max I've seen stable memory wise, and when you try to bring the core up with the memory at that level you start seeing artifacts and ull think they are caused by the core which they arent, they usually caused by the mem.

My ASUS 6870 is stable @ 1020/1190/1.3v using MSI Afterburner. Idol temp 56c @ 37% and 75c @ 58% under load and is almost inaudiable over case fans.

Yea these cards with a good case can handle them selfs pretty well, I had 2 case fans broken and my window fan was the crappy stock fan... Did so much noise that I had it always turned down. Changed it this friday for a Noiseblock XL1 which is absolutely silent at 100%, its throwing air onto the GPU's and replaced my broken HDD fan which was also throwing air to the GPU's.
I basicly only hear my HDD's cause the rest of the system is absolutely silent.

How can I see if my cards use Elpida Chips?

EDIT: I'm asking 'cause I want to change voltages and I can't, I tried to put a Asus bios on one of my cards and the card didn't even boot, so I guess it's 'cause they have Elpida Memory's, instead of samsung memorys, is there any bios that allows voltage tweak, using Elpida Chips?

Wow that's rediculous. I got 2 bad XFX chips I guess. Needs about 1.274v for 930mhz/1100.

What are you using to adjust the voltage on these cards??? I cant seem to unlock the voltage control on my Assus 6870s

Ok, I am going to give you the solution to all your problems, I would like a bit of credit for this because it wasn't easy to find it in the first place.
To enable over voltage in MSI Afterburner you need to edit a reg file in the MSI Afterburner directory, but to do this you need to log into the administrator account, you begin by searching in startup for: secpol.msc

In "Local Policies>Security Options" Enable: Accounts Administrator Account Status
Log out and log back in as admin.

Alternatively:
Run CMD as administrator and type:
"net user administrator /active:yes" to enable
And "net user administrator /active:no" to disable

Once logged into the administrator account find the MIS Afterburner main directory and edit the MSIAfterburner.cfg file located in the installation directory of AfterBurner (typically Program Files (x86) MSI Afterburner):


You need to alter the following:

Seek UnofficialOverclockingEULA field, open it in notepad, and add following text:
I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it
Set UnofficialOverclockingMode to 1 to keep PowerPlay active (may not work on old ASICs), 2 to traditionally disable PowerPlay or to 0 to temporary disable unofficial overclocking path

I know it sounds like a lot of bother to do this but in truth it is pretty easy when you know how.
I tried Smart Doctor (ASUS' solution to overclocking) which was unstable and unreliable, Trixx (Sapphires attempt at graphics card control) which didn't work at all with my card, Riva Tuner which was far too complicated and finally I tried to edit the Bios on my card but was unsuccessful (however looking back I'm glad I didn't succeed as it is a risky thing to attempt and can turn your pretty cool card into a door stop) but as far as graphics card overclocking goes, MSI Afterburner is the mutts nuts, and as a bonus, once this method is applied, you will have the ability to take the core clock over the 1000MHz restriction.

Good luck to you all, feedback would be whole heartedly welcome.

I'll try that as soon I arrive home, if that works for me I will be very apreciated. Thanks mate
