5970 second gpu fail on oc

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
the most stable clock i can do is 800 core and 1000 mem without changing voltage. if i move the memory or the core any higher than what it is the second gpu will work for about 1 min then stop then try to come back and fail again. even when uping the voltage a tad it is still not stable all im aiming for is like 825 with 1100 mem clock anyone got any ideas on whats up or does my card just suck? lol

You can't really RMA a card because it doesn't overclock well.
If it runs at stocks speeds it's still considered a good card to the manufacturer.

Usually if the card can't overclock well at all it means it's starting to die. How much longer is your warranty good?

warranty is good for another 6 months but the clock at 800/1000 is fine for now but it sucks when u try eyefinity on crysis or something and getting lag. i was thinking of doing trifire with a 5850 and keeping all the clocks stock sense it works fine with stock clocks.
