As others have said before, if im not mistaken, temps have a huge influence on the 69xx, when OC'ing.
Usually, my card would idle at around 45-50+C at OC'd clocks, but with the window open, temps dropped to 33C idle @1060/1470 1.3v, and maxed out at 50C with metro, outside temps are usually -10+C.
I'll try to play atleast 30mins to 1 hour @1060/1470 and see how it goes.
EDIT: Also, as a side note, im not using 6970 bios, but a modded bios.
I kinda gathered that , but to get 1060 stable in metro is pretty good considering if i put my card on 1060 it would freeze on the spot .. Thats what i mean , lol theres no way i can run any game at 960 let alone 1060 .. Even at 1.3v my card dies at 950 in crysis with stock mem clock =( .. Maybe my voltages arent applying ? i have done everything accordingly in msi afterburner ..
Just suggesting here, but have you set the "Unofficialoverclocking" to 2?Edited by Davidsen - 2/15/11 at 3:48pm
