I installed my x850xt pcie yesterday, and i started overclocking right away.

The first problem i had was the fan was stuck on 5%.. :?
so i downloaded ati tray tools, and the problem is fixed. I hear that's a problem with some sapphires.

All was fine, and the oc just wouldn't stop until i hit a wall at 584/1208, so i backed it down to 580/1204 and it works fine.

Any ideas on how to go higher?
Can i play around with the memory latency settings or will does do some serious damage? :twisted:

I know i can go higher the temperature stays at 56C at full load. (fan 100%)
this card seems to be a good overclocker, think it could hit 600 on stock air? :mrgreen:

What was the wall, was it artifacts or the utility would not allow setting higher?

The utility freezes. Monitor turns off for a second.
Catalyst control center says that the card stopped responding and it VPU recovered it.

I suggest that you imprve yout cooling, I have the sapphire x850xt PE and my card topped out at 624/649

I have a swiftech mcw55 GPU waterblock and some swiftech copper ram sinks

hope this helps


PS try using omega drivers, with Ati Tray tools built it, I obtained my highest overclocks with these drivers and program

is 56 degrees high? It doesn't seem like that much.

I'll try those omega drivers and see if it goes faster.
I think your PE overclocks better than the regular though.. :twisted:

the PE has faster memory chips
