1Ghz hd6850

hello everyone, i bought my hd6850 ( dual dissipation)14 days ago and i made a little overclock (920/1100) without change any voltages and i was thinking in make a overclocked to 1ghz ( 1000 clock core / 1125 memory core ) and this will need increase voltage , i dont know if anyone can answer that but how long my card will probably live with this overclock ? ... keeping the temps bellow than 77°C ...

  1. if it isn't overheating it should still last a long while yet
  2. Not every chip will hit that speed.
  3. what are the effects when increase the voltages ? ?( just heat ? )
  4. The more voltage you have, the faster your chip will degrade.
  5. default somthing like 790-820 for the mhz and the memory like 4000

    i think it max's out at 1 mhz, i have run it at this speed. it gets hot.

    i found the butter zone to be 850-900 mhz
    memory 4200
  6. ^how hot?

    then any voltage increase is killing the card correct ?
  8. running your card is killing your card, the more volts, the faster it dies, but a slight increase wont be the end of the world... when you start going at it like LN2 overclockers, then you will kill your card in a hurry
  9. ok ... just wanna know because my card is pretty new and i don't wanna kill him to fast , this should last a little more than 1 one year is what i am expecting
  10. oh god, you will for sure get well over 1 year even overclocked
  11. i am having a problem to make the overclock to 1Ghz ... my saphhire trix somehow dont go beyond 1.2v and msi afterburner when i enable the unofficial oc mode dont show any clock values ...
  12. afterburner usually dosent support other manufacturers overclocked cards, so you may be out of luck

    my card its not black edition , is standart without overclock

    so it has a blower style fan?
    usually reference/MSI designs are the ones supported

    standart the i means is stock clocks ( without overclock ) ,my gpu has 2 coolers from xfx like the photo of first img

    ah i see, but i doubt MSI afterburner will unlock for you because it's non reference from XFX

    what is weird is the i saw some people making overclock with sapphire trixx and increase the voltage for 1.3V max and here just go to 1.2V, i can't reach even 950 gpu clock with this voltage
