I don't know if this has already been posted here, but I just found out about this in my search for a fan fix. While this didn't solve my problem (still looks like a hardware issue) it may be useful for others. This is specific to the XFX 6850 model ZNFC.

I have just run kombustor on my system and at 1020/1180 3.0v I got a steady 61oc with a fan speed of 79%. I feel for you guys having problems with cooling, but I have to say ASUS have done a great job with their cooling system even if it is a little noisy past the 60% mark.
If you are thinking of getting one of these cards seriously consider ASUS, you won't be disappointed. These cards are just under par with a GTX 560Ti and with a 6870 overclocked it probably matches them. I have started playing STALKER call of pripyat complete and with everything ramped up and a directx 11 enhanced full dynamic lighting I get about 60-70 fps at stock and well over a 100 with the overclock. This card never ceases to amaze me, I have had as low as 19 fps but still had a flawless gameplay.

Any one know if a 6870 and a 6850 work well together? Or is it still up in the air on that topic?

Voltage doesnt even go up to 3.0V
6870 and 6850 in cross fire will only perform like 2X 6850s.

maybe 1.3v

That is true, the fastest card only runs at the same speed as the slowest card thumb.gif

Been using the Sapphire HD 6850 for almost a year now, performs darn well in most games for it's price. I must say though..i read some of the post that they're getting idle temps of 40C and some at 30C. Mine idle at a constant 50-52C and 44C was the lowest i have seen so far. Stock cooler, not overclocked and have a decent airflow with my NZXT Phantom 410. Load temps sometimes hit the 70C mark (not a constant though, mostly hovering at 60+C) when playing BF3. I use a can of air to blow the dust out periodically, but some areas are hard to get to..
Never taken apart the cooler before..afraid that i might messed up the whole thing.

There appear to be minor rusting on the screws on the PCB board, and some on the back the the video card. No idea how it happened..sadsmiley.gif

I have taken mine apart a couple of times. It's just 4 screws from what I remember. When I first got mine I thought I was going to change it out for a passive cooler but it was too big for the case. So I had to put the stock cooler back on with a fresh TIM and it would idle mid-30's during winter.

The 2nd time is to put my Kuhler 620 on it.

I don't remember there being a sticker or paint over the screws. And I sorta kinda remember that it doesn't void the warranty just removing the cooler and putting it back on. I think it was any sort of modification to the cooler or card and it gets voided.

But don't take my word for it on the warranty thingy... my memory isn't exactly a high end model.
