Default Gigabyte HD5870 Super Overclock

In response to Hondacities thread, here's some info on the card




Since i know you overclockaholics are already clued up on what's what im just gonna give you the juicy bits and shave this review

The Card:







OC Guru app. With this application you can tune almost anything. From the basics of checking temps , fan speed , clock speed to seeing the actual power draw and phase of the card. A very useful tool to monitor GPU activities as well as set profiles to suite your overclocking needs. You have access to Core voltage AND memory voltage which makes this tool Super Awesome.
But i use the cool app that hicookie posted on XS




Test platform
:
Gigabyte UD7 motherboard
Intel I7 980X
Gigabyte HD5870 Super Overclock
Corsair 2000 cl8
Corsair H50
Corsair HX1000w PSU.

Results at stock speeds (Card).
2003: 84276


2005: 30330


2006: 24871


Vantage: 22200


And for those not satisfied with the high stock clocks of a Gigabyte 5870SOC edition can push even higher for that little bit of extra performance.

Done with ease. I'll unleash this cards full potential when i hit sub-zero this weekend.
Voltages adjusted:
1.25v GPU
1.6v Memory
Fan speed 100%

3DMark 2003: 87767


3DMark 2005: 30773


3DMark 2006: 25119


3DMark Vantage: 23118



SUB ZERO COMING NEXT/SOON


Keep overclockaholicaning it

I'm guessing that card overclocking utility only works with the 5870? I searched Gigabyte's site and found no mention of it...must come with the card.
