[Official] AMD Radeon HD 6850/6870 Owners Thread - Page 83

post #821 of 6939
Don't bother trying Scythe Musashi coolers. I ordered 2 because the bottom card has limited room that will not let me use a 3 slot cooler. Temps were about the same in idle but about 14c+ under load.

Also, add me to the owners list!
It's a Sapphire, btw.

It seems normal, maybe it's a bit low compared to whats in all the reviews because of the CPU?

Hmm.. I hope these have memory voltage tweak like the reference 5870s.. that would be awesome, come on MSI update Afterburner already!

Messed with bit of overclocking lastnight, got 850/1150 but haven't pushed it anymore, had a decent jump in Furmark. Hope to push it and test more tonight. As for the sound of the XFX, I can definitely hear it whined up but it's actually quieter than my 4850 and it's not a high pitched whining like it either. So far I love this card.

I have about 2 1/2 slots of room on my bottom card. My first choice is the cooler you have but... PSU is in the way.

I agree with the little bit of clock and memory for the great score improvement but I am frustrated with AMD and their poor driver support. I been dealing with this for years and I am sure I will catch some hate but yesterday I ordered a GTX 580 and 2 hours ago I sent my 6870 back to Newegg.
I wasnt overly happy with the 6870's preformance and the ability to overclock aswell. This will be my last post for I will be a proud GTX 580 owner come Monday.

Yes I understand the 6870 is a midrange card so it cant be compared to a GTX 580, I never compared the 2 either. For me its mainly the drivers that are buggy from AMD, come on how many years does it take to get right?

New Beta 10.10e drivers are out for those interested, sucks I sent my card back should have waited til new one comes..
