    @;...;@ I am OCD - but i do have patients...honestly I do! I have it in bukket loadz!! its just that there are certain things that I cant let them stay the way it is so Im all over it trying to fix it till im happy with the way it is - and this just doesnt apply to technology - if affects me in other fields too - its like in Royal mail, when i was working on one of their big mail sorting machines that tend to eat letters for breakfast and dinner - the people there told me I didnt NEED to be so 'critical' about sorting mail for the machine - e.g there are some really small or thin letters that cant go through the machine because it would jam it up. or letters that were too big or thick to go through the belt. They told me i didnt have to be so critical about it - i told them I CANT :( its just the way i do things - I sorted the letters faster then the bloody machine itself. its just how i am - somethings i cant just let things sit as they are and i have to toy around with it or move it sideways a little till i am happy

    --its not easy - these voices in my head drive me mental!!

    That's it. I'm getting takeaway. Thanks FreedomEclipse, for contributing towards my unhealthiness.

    I've got an XFX HD 6950 on it's way, got it for £200 too! Looks like hopefully it will be a HD 6970 within about 5 minutes of receipt :rockout:

    No brand new ;) No mystery really, I had a £30 off voucher! Have you edited your 6970 Bios to raise voltages at all?

    Smooth!

    Not yet, haven't had the need to tbh. I've OC'd slightly to 900MHz from 6970 speeds and been too busy sorting out machines for other people and not really played much.

    Tonight I'll push 910MHz and I'll see how that goes. I usually take small steps when OC'ing. I'm also slightly reluctant to push this card after my nightmare of having artefacts appear in 3DMark11 and games.

    :ohwell:

    And have you increased Powerplay to 20%, yes having now read the hardware differences between the 6950 and the 6970 I am reluctant to add additional voltages beyond the 6870's reference (and higher) 3D volts. I might try powerplay +15% to be conservative and therefore trying to keep the max TDP draw to the 225W rated spec, it appears a very small minority are getting some real issues now even after re-flashing to the 6950 Bios. The way I see it, any performance increase is free performance.

    A paperclip and very small screwdriver will easily sort that.

    Not skilled enough to break open a lock with "circular teeth" instead of the conventional one :shadedshu

    Going to find biscuits and things like that for now, and hope I can survive until he comes back

    I heard that he was going up to Anfield to watch the Liverpool v Everton Game and he said that this time he wasn't coming back until Liverpool had won, expect to see him around April :roll: Thats a hell of a lot of Custard creams!!

    :laugh:

    I haven't dicked with Powerplay at all, I'll find my max stable OC at stock volts and leave it at that until my rig starts feeling the burn. Considering I can play Metro 2033 maxed out (settings in previous posts) with MLAA enabled I'm happy.

    :D

    All I need now is a PCIe SSD to dump Windows and my games onto and will only then need to replace my case and get on with WC'ing it. No new hardware for me for at least 2 years!
