So i installed new bios drivers for my gigabyte x58 ud3r motherboard and I tried overclocking my msi 4890 (stock overclock 900/1000) and I managed to hit 1000/1150!!!!!!!!!!! the speeds at that clock are crazy I manage to out perform a gtx 285 and almost equal performance of the 5850 at stock, but I am worried that this may kill my card. I had some micro stuttering issues with dawn of war 2 but it turned out to be the lan connection. The fans are at 50% and the temp never goes over 70c and i havent done any voltage tweaks, so should I be worrying. The extra 5-10 fps in games can make the world of difference in some cases.
run futuremark if it passes that its totally stable
is that really true? cuz futuremark is rather short (i'm using 3d vantage) and it passes, but i get random system crashes.... only problem is that i switched to Windows 7 and a new HD5770 at the same time so i can't tell which is causing the crashes.
well i assume that anything that runs it at 100% is good so i played crysis for a couple of hours earlier today and it worked out fine. I did lower it down to 1000/1100 just for the sake of more comfort. Temps are always the same though, 60c idle 70c load.
Forget if it's true or not.....does it even make sense?
The lack of literacy on this site is astounding. People who build computers but can't write a complete sentence is amazing to me.
this is simply a forum for people with issues et cetera. i don't realy see a need for perfect grammer, punctuation or whatever, as long as your understand what's being said the goal of communication is met right?
i mean, if this were an english paper, i'd proof read and all, but this isn't
