HD6950 Arrived :D - Page 2

post #11 of 31
BTW does your hardware run cooler without a case? I've seen a few setup with just the motherboard layout and GPU on top of a box or table and thought maybe it give better ventilation or something?

just curious why you're using this in an H55? Don't think it will affect the card too much but for OCing your cpu, I think P55 has more caps?

Someone ran a voltage test with a multimeter and set voltage in AB to 1.4v+ and it's still reads 1.35v (software limited). Best stability test is Crysis benchmark max settings with 30-50 loops. Trust me. I ran MSI Kombuster/ Furmark and it'll be stable but it crash Crysis in 10 minutes during gameplay. If you can pass Crysis benchmark with at least 30-50 loops your overclock is stable.
Yeah xD, for me AB only goes up to 1.3v tho? hmmm

Also i run crysis for stabillity xD

Well im using a H55 with a clarkdale atm @ 4.2GHz, the reason i chose the H55 UD2H is because its the best board for clocking clarkdales

Switching to i7 in a few days aswell xD

Nice comparison

When i flashed mine, i just modded my existing 6950 bios so only the shaders were unlocked, that way the mem voltage and timings stay the same xD

Ah, wow, that's pretty good clocks there. I think you'll be happier pairing this card with an i7 though

You need to download MSIAfterburnerVoltUnlock.exe to get more than 1.3v

I'm thinking of giving overclocking my 5850 another go. I got lazy, because imo OCing a GPU takes a lot more patience than a CPU.
When i overclocked my 5850 i used GPUtool ...I found that to be the best
found errors where kombustor and other similar stress programs didnt

let the program run for half an hour or so ...then if it finds an error u get a msg like ...last error found xx seconds ago

and it doesnt really take all that time... I find overclocking GPU easier then cpu
and u only got 3settings to mess with ...voltage, shaders, core


...and to the topic owner congrats on the buy ...its a nice card
