Precisely as the thread states!

Thought it be better to consolidate any information about the cards in one place.
If you have any problems with the cards, this is the place to ask for help or if you just want to share your benchmarks/over-clocks feel free!

If you would like your cards/ overclocks added as well as your name, just ask as you join or change your cards! : ]

I was initially disappointed by my 5770 due to the crappy stock cooling ( and difficulty of changing the cooling due to 43mm mounting holes) how ever I've been running it @960 mhz and I've got to say, feels a bout as powerful as 4890 at that speed!

Nice : ]

Technically on my 2nd 5870. First was Asus reference that had to be RMA'd, now running Sapphire Toxic.

Does anyone know a software solution that will push it past the CCC limit of 900mhz? I wouldn't mind doing a new BIOS RBE style but would like to have software to test settings before something that permanent.

It's non-reference so MSI afterburner won't go beyond the 900mhz cap. Voltage adjustment is also not available...

Have you tried GPU clock tool? Was the only thing that could push my non ref 4850 past 750mhz.

Adding peoples names to list in first post just like all the other clubs.

Welcome everyone by the way, hopefully we can make this a 5000 series gold mine for information and trouble shooting : ]


I understand most clubs have a club logo, I'm useless at graphics these days but if someone else wants to make one go nuts!

I'm not the leader of the club after all, I just made the thread XD

I`m not to sure in the quality of 5xxx series. Maybe later models that would go true more improved manufacturing process. So far I`v had two defective cards one ASUS 5750 and the current one Sapphire 5750. First one was not stable at lower 2D clock(I say lower because it has 2 2D clocks) would defect on 2D work or just watching desktop.
And the second one every time that powerplay changes the clocks the screen stutters.
They are great overclockers low power consuming and cold running. But some of them especially first batches would suffer from imperfection of the 40nm manufacturing.
If some one have the same problem http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=116057 it shows how to save preset that edit it to lock clock. It also can be done with ATi tray tools and for some with MSI afterburner-did not work for me. Many on the net were complaining on low FPS that is mainly because of poor detection from the power play so if in the game 2D video is showing the card can lower the clocks and when the game continues in 3D the clocks don`t change. And because the voltage is also lowered can lead also to instability besides low FPS.

Yesterday i boght a gigabyte 5770 reference .The cooler seems a litle noisier than that on 4850 also reference ,and has some kind of disturbing buzz .

RMA it you've got a faulty fan, mine doesn't make this noise ( I have sensitive hearing so would notice such a thing too)

I have a HIS 5770 and love it. Just starting to test some overclocks. Ive had it at 875/1225 so far, not much but it will come. I hear a lot said about the reference coolers being loud, mine is almost silent unless you take it up over 55%. I can game all day long with the fan set @ 30%.

I just set mine straight to the CC max, give it a go, worst that can happen is the next game you play will crash ( or system will crash) but you can't cause any damage : ]

If it does crash just knock down the overclock by ten and try playing a game again.

I have a Sapphire 5870 watercooled right now.

MSI Afterburner allows you to take the card as far as you want and enables voltage control. FYI
