makes me a bit worried =( I couldn't imagine my poor card running at that...

Only card I was ever that abusive to was my 8800GT which I didn't like because idiots at dell invested in single slot models (no exhaust).

I had that thing running non-oc'd at 12+hours a day around 105C, but it never damaged the chip to my knowledge and is still running perfectly. (turned out to be the crappy thermal job, about 2-3mm of thermal paste! Everywhere... couldn't even see the GPU it was so bad.)

LOL HAPPENED T ME!

do not run gpuz and ab together!!

DO NOT. I can confirm that the voltage was reallly 1.65v

just use sapphire trixx

as for damage...well, it's working fine still

After I disabled Afterburner's voltage reading it never happened again. Something about the sensors is finicky when multiple programs are running. So make sure you only run once at a time, like GPU-Z, Afterburner, Everest, HWMonitor or whatever.
No damage would've occurred, you're fine.

Ya I generally don't have AB set up to overclock the chip, just too lazy and generally 5870 can max just about everything, I don't need the 10% boost.

I think you're missing the point. By default, Afterburner doesn't even monitor voltage, you have to go into settings and check "unlock voltage monitoring". Therefore by default it won't even cause any problems. Plus Afterburner has so many more functions than just increasing frequency and voltage...

The problem isn't with Afterburner, it's any two programs trying to read the voltage sensor at the same time.

From the screenshots, it looks like Trixx just sets the voltage, but doesn't read it. You can set the voltage in Afterburner just fine, the problem is when you have muliple programs reading the voltage. So in Afterburner I have found it's safe to "Unlock voltage control" but if you have another monitoring program you should not run "Unlock voltage monitoring".

Besides, I didn't even have GPU-Z running when it happened to me, the two programs conflicting were Everest and Afterburner... It's unrelated to specific programs, it could be anything attempting to read the voltage of the card.
