980/1125 is the highest i've ever tried.

I didn't say crash.

And I guess I should correct myself. It's commonly found that over 70 degrees... so on so forth.

I didn't believe it till I saw it for myself. I kept getting errors during stress test at 950/1100 with stock cooling and temps going over 70. I slapped a Kuhler 620 on it and now the temps stays below 65 and I can game without problems at 1000/1200 and fold at 1030/1250. If rig left unattended, it'll fold at 1060/1250.

Not sure, but it isn't a black edition. The store i bought it from has two models, a 1gb(which i have) and a 2gb. Are there several models of this card?
post #5304 of 6939
yes... the one i have is the XFX Dual Dissipation 6870

can you post a link to the card in the store you got it?

6850's have been known for higher clocks all along.. Card makers are also releasing 2nd revisions/versions of card with lesser cooling to cut costs.
6850's are a better crossfire approach, as opposed to dual 6870's.. You'll find that your 6870 may also not have had the cooler applied properly. (Tighten the screws on it). Doing so dropped my temps by about 2-4c and mine weren't even faulty..

As for the 4850 driver problem.. I had that EXACT same problem, even after using driver sweeper etc. Programs would still detect that i had a 4850. Only way to fix was a fresh install I'm afraid. Even if there is a fix, I'd suggest doing so just to clean out the crap from programs/hardware being installed!
