6970 maximum stable over clock - Page 3

post #21 of 28
I use 1.35v, but my load temps are around 50 for the core, memory and vrm.
Not sure what the max safe voltage really is, but as long as you can keep it cool you can take it pretty high.

925/1450, I think memory can do 1500Mhz. As far as the core it can do 950Mhz with much higher fan speed so the cooler the card the more you can overclock it. The card has a limit of 1.3v in MSI AB and 1.35v actual software limitation. My card did 1Ghz @ 1.275v @ 100% fan speed with a load temp of 58C. At that fan speed you are better of listening to a jet engine lol. ~ 6K RPM i think.

935/1470 stock is the best. i can do 2x aa 16x setting all high except bloom and hbao which look like crap anyway. eyefinity 60fps all the time. butter smooth. all clocks with increased volts are not stable in games making me believe its not really over volting again. stable in combuster but not in bc2.

Ultimate stability I'd say 915/20 MHz.
Higher than that and I'm sure I could find ways to make it unstable. wink.gif
