post #2061 of 3890
Thats weird...Im only able to run 950x1375 with an unlckd 6950...If I throw up the volts, to 1.25-1.30, and overclock a little higher, lets say...970x1350 or 950x1380 and play games, it locks up after about 5 minutes, with the fan at 60%.
Anybody know how to get it higher without crashing or freezing up?

Quick question - I'm using an eyefinity setup with my 6950 (unlocked to 70), and I'm often just using 1 monitor to watch a movie and such, but my card will always be running on 500/1375 and idling around 50c with 35% fan speed vs 35-40c if I disable my two other monitors. Will it hurt the TIM eventually by having it idle at 10++ more degrees?

tldr; Will I have to replace the TIM sooner if I keep having it at 50c almost 24/7 vs ~35-40c?

Hi guys, new here. Just build my first computer and i've got an XFX 6950 2GB flashed with the 6970 BIOS running at 6970 stock clocks/voltage (880/1375). Just wondering how high I could go with the clocks and what benefits I would get with going higher? I'm editing the clocks using the catalyst software. Should I do it with someone else and if I increase the clocks to say 920/1450 would I have to up the voltage to keep it stable? Completely new to all this so any help would be much appreciated!

i'm at the same spot. i can get to 970 stable @ 1.2v and run for hours but it won't boot if i leave it there and restart. what are your temps like?

that's a good question. my cards are currently running @ 67C 24/7, but i'll be replacing the tim shortly when i tear them apart for maintenance

the general consensus is 920-950 stable core and 1325-1450 stable memory.

depending on what you're using the cards for, whether or not you're bottle necked, whether you'll notice any fps gains, whether you care or not etc effect whether or not you would receive any benefit from a further OC.

most of the users here use a program called MSI Afterburner, which does a pretty good job of letting you customize your OC.

i'm running @ 950/1325 at 1.175vcore and all is well. you'll have to test your cards to see where your sweet spot would be w/ clocks vs vcore.

overdrive enabled, powertune set to 0

i tested different configurations w/ powertune from 0-20% and didn't get any added stability.

that might be because i'm maxing out my 750w and can't get any more power to the cards, but i have yet to have a hard restart, always artifacts and bluescreen, so i don't think that's the issue

I have had the same experience. I always just install the new drivers and have never had an issue.

My 6970 primary card runs at 54c with a load varying from 8% to 12% (web browsing). I also have a 6950 flashed to a 6970 in crossifre, and I have found they basically perform exactly the same in every respect when either is installed by itself. I would recommend you run MSI Afterburner or Sapphire's TriXX software so you can change the fanspeed ramp and get your fan running a little faster. This will lower your temps a little. My 6950 in crossfire, when it's idling at pretty much zero GPU usage, will run at 43 to about 47 depending on the ambient temperature with a fan speed at 25% for anything under 50c.
