2xSapphire HD6950 CF OC?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Dear readers

I've just installed my new water system and I'm wondering if it's optimal to overclock your crossfire setup and/or how?

Excuse my ignorance, but it is a fact that I'm a rookie at overclocking GPUs.
I have 2 Sapphire cards so I should be able to use the Trixx tool if it turns out optimal to overclock a CF-setup. (Both cards are watercooled so it shouldn't be a problem.)

Thanks a lot in advance!

i think question should be do you need to really, are you seeing framerate drops, or do you want to beat those records for highest bench, i know thats what am gonna try an do when i get the rest of my parts xD

personally i would do some research on how temps would be affected, and the best method to go about doing it (i know thats why your here, but i mean do some reserch)

Yes, MSI Afterburner links both cards to whatever you set it to.
However, it is best to have one card in your rig at a time if you're looking for your absolute best overclock, then running both cards at the slower card's speed.

Sorry if that made no sense, it's early.

Overclocking 2 6970's it just overkill... as of right now(unless you are benchmarking) just preserve the life of your cards and run them stock. Doubt you're going to notice a difference in real time gameplay as everything is already gonna be maxed to it's limits.

I am actually looking into benchmarking in the near future, so I think I'll have to do some experimenting with MSI Afterburner!

Btw I've flashed the cards back to 6950 again.
