Sapphire 6970's under water, want to OC - Page 2

post #11 of 12
You should go step by step :
First : Increase Memory 50Mhz at a time until you got Driver failure or crash
then back up a little
Second : set your memory back to stock and increase your core frequency by 20 Mhz until you got driver failure or crash then back up a bit

Finally set your Core frequency and memory frequency maximum and run for stability (games)

This would give you a starting point with your stock Vcore.

Then it's just a little game to find your Vcore for the Core/mem frequency target
Takes time, but it you test for stability while gaming so It would become fun.

my 2 cents : Do not use Furmark or any other.

You can't expect to throw a Vcore and voilÃ*
Each card is different and you'll have to figure out your own OC

Ya that's my plan once I finish running my stability test on my 2500k
