    XFX HD 4830

    I'm going to jot down my initial thoughts and bit about its overclocking ability.


    Setup 1

    • Athlon X2 5050e 2.6GHz 1MB L2
    • 2x1GB Super Talent DDR2 800
    • Asus M3A78-EM 780G/SB700
    • XFX HD 4830 512MB
    • Vista 32-bit


    Setup 2

    • Athlon X2 7750 BE @ 3.0GHz
    • 2x1GB OCZ DDR2 1066
    • Asus M3A78-EM 780G/SB700
    • XFX HD 4830 512MB
    • Vista 32-bit


    Setup 3
    • Athlon X2 7750 BE @ 3.3GHz
    • 2x1GB OCZ 1066 DDR2
    • DFI LP Jr 790GX-M2RS
    • XFX HD 4830 512MB
    • Windows 7 Beta 32-bit


    Aesthetics

    The card looks great! Typical XFX quality all around. It has a flat black finish, a black PCB and a black PCI bracket. Did I mention that its black? :)


    Cooling

    First off, with the stock fan profile the 4830 idles around 38 degrees and loads in the low 50s! That is a huge difference than what I used to see with my reference 4850 and 4870. Fan noise is pretty quiet as well but picks up a little as the card is loaded (obviously).


    Overclocking


    The factory clocks are set at 575/900. So far I have it 3DMark06 stable at 802/1074. Any memory frequency above 1078MHz causes instant artifacting on the desktop. In addition, overclocking the core and memory haven't raised the load temps above a couple of degrees.

    Yes, they do. I've had a couple and both have been great. The 'higher' end 4830s can generally hit 700MHz+ on the core.

    What's your cpu scores for those runs? I'm contemplating getting the Sapphire 4830.

    Yeah see in SM2 and SM3 scores you are very very close to my e5200 4Ghz run.

    EDIT:

    Very impressive, the 4830 is a beastly little card. I probably would of saved a few bucks and gone for the 4830's in crossfire rather then my 4850's if they had been out. No regrets though.

    Are you going to do some vmods on it?

    I might volt mod. Depends on how they crossfire together.

    *Updated maximum stable clocks to 700/1050*

    Congrats! So, I am just guessing here, that this card would have no issues with most gaming titles at 1680x1050 at max then?

    I think it would be safe to say that. Not all of the 4830s OC this well. Although I've personally had a MSI 4830 OC edition which was a monster clocker too.

    HAHAHA...the display settings in 3DMark06 are at their defaults....1280x1024, no AA, etc

    802/1074 is as high as she goes.

    What did you use to OC your 4830? I get nearly the same 3DMark Vantage score but with a 3.2Ghz cpu and 750MHz gpu. Is it game stable?
