if an overclock is unstable enough to artifact while playing games but not unstable enough to crash, how would that translate to bitcoin mining?
(im not saying im getting artifacts or anything like that, just curious)
My 5850 is semi-stable at 860/1190 but I can't run games for more than an hour without the clocks resetting. I can mine fine, but I'm likely killing my card faster. I wish I bought an Asus reference card so I could up the voltage and get a nice 1000/1300 overclock going, the model I bought is voltage-locked at 1.15v. Weirdly though, when I installed the Trixx overclocking utility I was able to change the voltage and it reflected properly in GPU-Z. I OC'd until my system became unstable but upon restart I lost all software voltage control. Bloody strange.
