Hey how do I overvolt a Diamond 6990 for some reason neither MSI nor Trixx will let me do anything with it to sustain a good clock...

Did you hit the BIOS switch?
Also, you can try OCing with AMD CCC overdrive.

I had the switch switched over from the stock configuration, I had overclocked it to 980 core and 1350 memory, but when I needed more juice I went to afterburner and the bar was faded and wouldn't move for voltage...so I tried Trixx and it wouldn't let me push voltage either beyond 8__something I forget... btw this is watercooled.
I saw somewhere that only certain brands of 6990's had the ability to push voltage i.e. Asus, Sapphire, MSI, Gigabyte etc, but not the ones like Diamond... so maybe I could use software from one of the other companies for mine?
Thanks in advance for the help.

This happened to me once. I uninstalled and spent a week or so just OCing by CCC. It actually worked fine. Then I downloaded a newer version of afterburner. I remember I was using a beta that stopped working for some reason.

Not sure if it helps... if you' using beta version, roll bac^k to 2.1 (don't remember) or so?

Guys,

I come to the experts because I have reach a point on a issue I can not decide on. I currently own two ATi 6990s in quadfire. I have had some issues over the last year with ati drivers but nothing major. I anticipated the Nvdia 680 to be fast so I bought two for SLI. I am not ton after reading reviews if I should keep them. I currently game at 2560x1600 and mostly use single monitors although I own three. What do you guys think I should do?

Thanks,

I would sell them and wait for the 4GB versions of the GTX 680 or the 7990 I imagine both will be out around the same time. No point in buying the 680's now when larger memory versions have been announced.

My advice: MSI GTX 680 Lightning 4GB SLI or 7990+7970 Crossfire thumb.gif

2g vram... meh. If you're going away from the awesome 6990, get the 4g vram versions or the 7970.
That's my opinion.

Well better late then never I have finished my water cooled 6990 trifire set up. Add me to the club... I have them overclocked to 950 core and 1375 memory on both cards. Any advice on how to reach 1 GHZ ? I have the switch flipped on the 6990 and havent increased any voltages yet. Max temps full load is 57 C on the 6970 and 55 C on both cores on the 6990.450
