This 5850 for example looks amazing, the cooler looks great and the price is a steal

Nice thread jack.

Yes, they usually cool a little better at the cost of dumping hot air into the case.

you will not be able to adjust the voltage with AB with those cards.

Damn. Okay. Thanks again. So far I got the cards up to 850/1200 with no artifacts.

Thats pretty good mate i can only get mine to 815/1100 on stock volts, well the 1100 memory clock could prob be higher not really played about with it.

You could always try OCCT as a gpu bench instead of things like furmark just to be on the safe side, i found OCCT to throw out errors even when i was not seeing any artifacts with furmark or kombuster.

Charles i have just noticed you have the same monitors as me from your sig i have mine in dual whats your eyefinity setup like

Sucks you don't have a reference model. With a small voltage bump (1.16v) my 5850 was 100% gaming stable at 960/1250 and bench stable at 980/1250. I couldn't get it bench stable at a 1ghz though even with 1.2v.

With 1.25v I run my 5850 1000/1200 and 1.35v 1045/1230. Love my card

Did you try bumping it to 1.25 mate? thats normally a good mark if you want to hit the super 1ghz mark

I will try the OCCT. But if it were unstable I would notice something while playing Metro 2033 or Crysis right? And the Samsung monitors are great, defiantly paid to much for them but the quality is awesome! Newegg has a deal for a 23in Asus 1080p at 139$. I paid like $150 a piece.

Yea your right mate to be honest a lot of people spend to much time running benchmarks to test there clocks but the best bench you can get imo is to play the games you intend to use and you dont have any issues then you OC seems good.

I do love the monitors there great arn't they, like you said they are a bit pricey, i think i paid about £120 each for mine. Thats a really good deal you found on newegg for a 1080p monitor but it will ruin your eyefinity wont it unless you plan on getting 3

Let us know how the testing goes buddy good luck and enjoy

Ya unfortunately the only way to get new monitors is to get 3 Once you have an eyefinity setup you will never turn back. And also eyefinity works great with crossfire. I just keep using the 10.10 CCC. I tried 10.12 and it blows.
