What you're saying (here) makes no sense.

Which one is going to heat up your case/room more, a GTX 480 running full load at 55C or a 5770 running full load at 95C? The GPU core's temp has no bearing on how much heat the card is putting out. It does show how effective (or ineffective) the card's cooling is, though. In fact, the better the card's cooling, the more it's going to heat up your room. (the heat has to transfer somewhere.)

Your right its not that simple but thats not what were talking about.If you look back we were talking about reasons to keep his card cool (and only his). Sure a 480 with good cooling is going to dump more heat in your room if your talking about one card putting out a tiny amount of 95c air versus the other putting out a $hit load of 55c air .But that same 480 overclocked with added voltage is going to get hotter and add more heat in and outside the case.

That makes perfect sense maybe you should troll less and read more. Check the name of this thread no one here talking about 480's or 5770's.

Maybe its just me but when someone with 2 6870's asks why to keep his temps below 80c in the AMD Radeon HD 6850/6870 Owners Thread fermi cards are a little off topic.

Hi i am new to this thread but thought id throw in my 2 cents. I have 2 Powercolor 6870's overclocked at 970/1150 and they run at around 72-77degree's at full load depending on how hot the day is. And yes they do heat up the room with pretty much 2 hair dryers cranking air into the room constantly. So i can see where ur cumn from smoke420, but if the cards r feeding the hot air straight out the back of the pc i wouldnt worry about them heating up the whole system.

I can't seem to overvolt with trixx Is there something I am missing? Can some one walk me through it. This is my first foray into overclocking and I am such a noob.
post #4867 of 6939
I have a sapphire 6850 and since I started using it I have noticed these lines on my screen wether I'm playing a game or on my desktop but they only are visible when I'm moving a window around or running around in a game. Can't figure out what it is. I don't think it is effecting my performance as I have ran almost every new game on 1080 res and high setting and it's always been smooth. I use my 26 in vizio t.v for my monitor could that be the prob? It's vary annoying

Are you running 1080p or 1080i?


fester99: Maybe your one doesnt have voltage control.

I'm not a overclocker either, but I do know that for most you need to enable Fan Control in the settings, and that will bring up voltage control. At least, that needs to be done for the Green side...

1080p and I can change my voltage I oc it the other day I have some screen shots of my stats on a thread I started the other day I was at 1000 gpu clock and 1140 mem but it still dose it at stock speeds and volts I was thinking maybe it has something to do with my mobo because I have gpu boost but not sure.
