[Official] AMD Radeon HD 6850/6870 Owners Thread - Page 503

post #5021 of 6939
Ive had 2 Powercolor 6870's in xfire for a litlle over a year now and they have been flawless. They overclock very well, there's not a huge amount of headroom for overclocking but they run completely stable at 970/1150 and only hit about 70degree's on a hot day (30degree's C). Only worry about temps when ur hitting the 90-100 degree mark, but really dont b scared to overclock ur cards. U wont pop the card by overclocking, it will simply crash. I am now running just 1 card as im over the glitching in BF3 and just the 1 card at those 970/1150 clocks run it fine at 60-70 frames/sec on ultra.

I didn't have any problems updating for awhile now just doing the updates but it sounds like you'll need to do uninstall+CCleaner (registry files) + Driver Sweeper. Download the latest before doing the uninstall so that you'll have it ready.

The VRM is already heatsinked to the left there. The 8 black chips going around the GPU are the memory chips, put the sinks on those. Be sure to clean them though or they won't stick very well.

Enough proof? It used to never do that when i had older drivers (and a 6870 + 6850). I used to get 0% load on the bottom card. Both are loading up 'cause i can hear them and those temps are right in the ballpark. They get hotter then that, but it was just a quick run for the Screenshot. rolleyes.gif

EDIT: Just checking that but temps are 2-5c lower in windowed mode. Still means it's running CFX, they just aren't as stressed i suppose.

Its true, if you use OpenGL2 you get crossfire activated in windowed mode.
If you use DX11 render no crossfire for you. Tested it my self.
