Xfx 5770 oc

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Okay so, I haven't overclocked my GPU in a long time. I had a 3850, and recently decided to purchase a 5770. So instead of enjoying the performance boost from purchasing 2 generations above my current card, I decide I have to really push this card to its (safe) max.

My questions are:
What software should I use to OC or is AMD OverDrive in CCC fine?
What can I use to modify my fan speeds to keep my GPU cool and;
What is the max I should let my card get to in terms of temperatures?

Thanks!
Harness.

Ok,You can use the CCC to OC your card if you want.
Most peeps like me OC with MSI Afterburner:http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/download.htm
Which with a few tweaks you can exceed past 960mhz core plus your gpu memory too.
You want to keep the temps lower than 90c,card is capable of 100c.

The MSI application will work on my XFX card? I'm not at home to try it atm otherwise I'd check. Judging from the site makes me think it will which I think is really cool.

As for temps, thank you. Does Afterburner do fan control too?

Yes MSI Afterburner will work on any ATI card.

I have an XFX too and I persoanlly flash my overclocked 3D clocks and underclocked 2D clocks into the BIOS using RBE.

For the fan speed, I use Sapphire Trixx since you can setup the fan's curve the way you want. (infinite number of points on the graph)

As for temps, I am a temps freak and I have 3-custom fan setup which lets my GPU idle at 40c and max out at 47c in Crysis 2 maxx settings.

Could you please reply with the exact model number of your card and maybe an image on its back? I just want to see if your card is the same as mine since the one I have does not have voltage control.

Thanks,
ULTRA

my XFX 5770 supports voltage control. It is not the reference design, as it only has a single Crossfire bridge, not the double to allow for Tri-Fire. i am currently running at 925MHz core and 1325 MHz Memory at 1.237v. I am also using a Scythe Setsugen 2 cooler on it which i got from Newegg for $40. never get over 62C full load.

I am gonna try to go higher on the core clock... seeing how some people have got higher with stock voltage.

Remember each card is unique when it comes to overclocking.

I have been able to do 970/1350 @1.1V without voltage control.

yea, thats the one i got! It will overvolt to 1.23v~ with afterburner. you need to unlock the volt mod feature in the .cfg file.

Guide Here
http://www.overclock.net/ati/641299-guide-enabling-unofficial-overclocking-msi-afterburner.html

I was just doing some benchmarking and was able to hit 1000/1335 and ran both 3dmark 06 and 11.

3dMark06= 19061
3dMark11= p2992

not to shabby for a $125 card biggrin.gif

For stress i use MSI Kombuster v2.0
