hi all (again)
instead of helping you've deleted my posts. with no answer to why or anything. I came here to help and advise and all I wanted was to put info up for people in the CORRECT section. this board is behind a joke. so I'm going put information here. where no one who will give a damn about it will not see it. rothchilds running this board?
anyways, my point for coming on here is 5850's, I.e HARDWARE! I recently purchased a load of shapphire xtremes, all of which got upto 1000/300 when on 1.2 volts. pretty impressive and especially on a 4 card rig. the first card seems to do better when clicked down to 945 when all are going though other wise it SLOWS down with clicking up. weird. is it because monitor connected to it?
anyways, I just purchased another 5850 and i noticed the power connectors on the top, not at the back, vrms are closer to front of board and twice as many. the back of the board is slightly different and IT IS NOT ALLOWED OVERVOLT. shapphire xtreme they all are but this one is 299-23174-230sa, not 000sa. its a new revision.
so, I tried see what it could do with stock and low and behold, 1015/300 at 1.088 volt (stock), that's better than my other 6, which need 1.193 volt at least.
either its a good chip or these new revisions (with twice as many vrms) are looking at 1050 easy when the trixx comes out for them
note, the 230sa at the end of the pn, not 000sa.
I have pics but due to stupid regs, moderators, board, whatever, I can't post in right section or nothing. least you can do want you want, need on the dark side. life doesn't need to be so hard people ha ha
