Gigabyte HD 6850 Overclocking/Review - Page 3

post #21 of 36
Hey All
Thanks for the replies. More voltage huh? Okay now I seem to have another problem.
I'm Not sure If my voltage is locked or not. I Use triXX and there I can set my voltage higher, however, When I open Kombustor to stress, It still shows 1.150v. Also: TechPowerUp's GPU tool says the voltage can't be modified...

Is this a software error (can TriXX REALLY change my voltage like it shows on its gagdet, or do I need to Bios flash to another brand like Sapphire?

Thank You!

Don't use Trixx. Use unlocked Afterburner.

I've used MSI afterburner before... what is the real difference? Is the one more stable? It felt like I got better results in TriXX.
But I think I'm just going to leave my clock be for now. I got yet another error... If I start up Furmark Of kombustor (even on stock clocks), my system crashes and the GFX driver recovers... sometimes with a lovely BSOD. However, games and other graphic programs run fine.

I installed the 11.10 beta driver for Battlefield 3, it might've been this. So I will just leave the clocks where it is now... no sense in burning out my card...

Bad English, sorry.
Advise me guys. Changed the values ​​for 900 Core Clock (original 820), Memory Clock 1200 (original 1050). Should I raise the Core Voltage??? (Original 1149). And to raise approximately how many???

After the 11.10 Catalyst release, my card seemed to get new life!
I juiced out an extra 20 clocks and are now running on a toasty 910/1150/1237v with max temps after 2 hours stability testing of 85C. This is as far as I'm willing to stress my card...
Thanks you for everyone's advice!
