    The original BIOS is fine as is the 6970 BIOS. I'll keep fiddling. I bumped the core to 880MHz with the file you linked me to and that's when more, smaller artefacts started appearing in Burnout. In away I'm expecting the unlocked shaders to have a few issues.

    Still, I'm slowing increasing the core speed to see how things improve/turnout.

    66'C so far with fan about 50% so far its 830 on the core stable. not upped the voltage yet but i think i got to the bottom of why i wasnt clocking very well earlier. when i first got the card i put some new thermal grease on it (AC MX-4) but it would seem i didnt put enough on for overclocking but it was enough to run at stock clocks. anyway, i put some more grease on and now its a lot more well behaved. the only problem that remains is the displayport connection on the card doesnt work

    :eek: That's very tasty!! I'm not too good at the designing side of things, so if anyone wants to play about with the designs, feel free.

    Yep, that's the one, I ended up recuva-ing it off my HDD. Thanks though man :toast:

    That's okay man, Gas2100 gave me a ton of info on them, he's pretty good with petrol RC cars etc. Looks like I'm just going to get it running and sell it as I can't really afford another hobby at the mo :laugh:

    Never ever used the display port, I had a HDMI (monitor) to DVi cable..... 66C idle?.... wtf you doing? There is something wrong, It's never been 66C at load @ 900mhz, is your case an oven or what lol, let me dig them screenies out from an old thread.

    Base kit £200++ (new), various belles and whistles to make it any decent ~£100, and then there is "crash fund" which can be anywhere from £20 to £100 depending on how often you crash them. If you are careful, you can probably get away with less than £50 worth of maintenance a year, possibly less depending on how often you run your car. And then there is the upgrade itch...

    66'c in furmark stress test. so far ive got it upto 880 on the core with no voltage increase. i tried using afterburner to set clocks and smart doctor just to set voltage but there conflicts between the 2 so it looks like im gonna be running without no exta voltage. find the stable clocks - flash it into the bios so i dont need to touch nothing and off we go

    Thats a relief, I thought you meant 66C idle! Couldnt find the attachments I posted a few months back so probably good job, I still cannot understand though why you are only getting 880mhz stable in games.

    Ahhhhh well done, I see you are just a slow starter!!! :roll:

    Edit: Found that screenie, just worked out that you can access every attachment you have ever posted from the day you joined :eek:

    http://forums.techpowerup.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=38744&d=1288652514

    Furmark @ 900mhz with fan speed at just 50%, now thats a serious cooler you have there, ohhhh and if some heatpipes are hotter than others, slightly loosen the retaining screw(s) closest to hottest ones (or tighten the ones nearest the coldest), you may have uneven pressure on the GPU.
