    My ATI Radeon 5850 review (Gigabyte 5850OC) (custom dual fan model)

    Sounds awesome. Since I updated the drivers to 10.9 I started seeing flickering on my TV. The only way to get rid of it was to create a third overclocking profile in ATi tray tools with slightly higher clocks than the 2D clocks. Perhaps now I don't need that.

    Which Media Player do you use?

    MPC-HC. Haven't been without CCCP for many, many years. I use VLC once in a while too however. Mostly when watching DVDs on the PC.

    My ATI Radeon 5850 review (Gigabyte 5850OC) (custom dual fan model)

    I have just ordered the same kind of card that Erixx posted in his first post. I just wonder about this "55%" fan bug. Can I change the fan speed in programs like Rivatuner or ATi Tray Tools? I have pretty much always used ATT when I have had an ATi card and I intend to do so with this card...

    Is this the reason my card won't start? (See pic)

    Far as I know... 2 years old maybe? Tops. My guess is 1 and a half year old. On sapphires website it says they don't handle RMAs. I traded the card with some random dude on a Swedish hardware site at least 6 months ago (I don't remember when exactly) so no possibilities with RMAing the card to...

    Is this the reason my card won't start? (See pic)

    Alas I have no warranty on the card. I traded it for my 9800GX2 which didn't fit my case too well. Bad luck it would happen on the one card without warranty I've ever owned in my life. But that's life. Stupid mistakes are done and we learn from them. C'est la vie. When it comes to high-end...

    Is this the reason my card won't start? (See pic)

    Yeah been looking at different HD5850 cards. However I've always been careful when applying coolers. Not being too rough, always balancing the card right and making sure the screwholes lands exactly on the right place etc. Not really sure how I managed to do that crack. A Hd5850 should do...

    Is this the reason my card won't start? (See pic)

    Ugh I have been having extremely bad luck with my PC this month... First my monitor break (2493HM), then my 750GB drive and last but not least my HD4870 :/

    Is this the reason my card won't start? (See pic)

    So it's pretty much dead? Odd though that the PC still could boot and show picture for a while after that had happened.

    Is this the reason my card won't start? (See pic)

    Short story: Harddrive was giving error (during boot, in windows, Everest S.M.A.R.T diagnostic, speedfan, seatools etc) so I took it out. Everything worked fine, but suddenly one of the cards VRMs temps goes through the roof (105~ C) so I disassemble the cooler (twin turbo) and reattach it...

    Meh and here I was uploading it to both rapidshare and megaupload for you. :P Anyway, here's the links just in case you are getting slow DL speed from their website. http://rapidshare.com/files/378629351/stone_giant_setup.part1.rar...

    Bethesda to Publish id's Rage

    I recently found Doom (the original) for my iPhone so now I carry Doom with me wherever I go. How awesome is that? Can't wait for Rage to be released... been waiting since I first heard the rumors about iD's "new game" being developed. First game I played by iD was Wolfenstein 3D and man was...

    Best Remote Desktop Software

    Listen to this man. I've used tightVNC, RealVNC, UltraVNC, the built-in remote control thingy on winXP etc but logmein is far superior. Even the free version is (with the exception that it don't stream sound). It's a lot more smoother. I think it's the "mirror drivers" or whatever it's...

    Gordon Freeman needs your help!

    Link gets my vote. Half-life is an awesome game and I love playing them, but Zelda is an even more awesome game and I really do like medieval-type of games, with swords, bows and monsters :P D:

    Hitman 5?

    You sure it's only possible in the PC version? Far as I remember, I read a guide which was for the console that you were supposed to spin or tap the control stick to make him stand up. I only have Hitman 4 for PC, and you can in fact make agent 47 stand up, as he isn't dead (remember the map on...

    My HD4870 is acting up. Help please!

    I'm about to give up now... Read carefully now please: I just tried playing Runescape again. I used my 2D profile in ATT, which is 200/400 and fan at 30%. Everything except for the ram was around 40C according to GPU-Z. The ram was 42C while I played. I could play Runescape for about 4...

    My HD4870 is acting up. Help please!

    I just started Frozen throne and after about 2 seconds at the first screen (where you choose multiplayer etc) I got the same error as the picture attached to the first post. This was at default clocks. From IDLE (200/400, 1.1v, GPU 45c, mem 47c, VRMs 45c) to load. Is this REALLY heat...

    My HD4870 is acting up. Help please!

    I reduced the voltage to reduce temperatures. I haven't had any problems with low voltage so far ever since I set the fan speed at a higher percentage during gaming. Perhaps it was heat issues after all. BTW, I didn't set the fan at a fixed percentage before. I left it at its default...

    My HD4870 is acting up. Help please!

    I've noticed that my fan STOPS spinning at idle for some strange reason. GPUz says 0% on the fan, same do CCC, though ATT says 666rpm on the fan... perhaps it's too low for GPUz and CCC to register any movement on the fan? This is what I've done now with ATT: fan @ 30% when idle, 300/700...

    My HD4870 is acting up. Help please!

    Strange, considering it's the default settings for the fan. I'll use ATT to set the fan to a fixed setting, like 50% or so, while in 3D. Though I somehow doubt it's overheating that causes this, since nothing goes over 60C while in IDLE, and I'm having trouble even @ IDLE. At the moment the...

    My HD4870 is acting up. Help please!

    Thanks for the replies! Ok, a small update. I just had the first freezing while playing Crysis, so it seems the card freezes both on 2D AND 3D clocks. I got the exact same kind of "artifacts" or whatever I should call it while playing, and then the PC froze. Drivers I've been testing with...
