I was seriously impressed of your 1Ghash/s and I would like to know which brand is this 5970?
Is it XFX Black Edition or something or just a reference card?
Haha it was actually a HIS.
It's now hashing away at 465 mhash/s per core. I prefer seeing the VRM temps in the 80s.
I just got another 5970, XFX Black Edition, with a Koolance block, but unfortunately when I clock over 900 MHz, the VRMs in the second GPU skyrocket. So at 900, GPU 1 VRMs are at like 70, while GPU 2 jumps to 110. Probably just thermal pads or something, but I don't have time for that, so I just down clocked them to 850 and VRMs are below 80.
Personally, I really liked the EK Block on my HIS Card, but the Koolance block on the XFX didn't look to bad.
I was looking around and didn't really see anybody else doing that, so I decided to not push my cards that hard and so keep all my VRMs under 80 now.
Clocks for the 1 ghash/s are on first post.
