Top address is a link to the thread at Guru 3D...Bottom link is the download link.... Now that we got a thread going that seems to be working out well for the 6850 users.... let's start one for the next BETA.

I can offically tell you that it works just fine for my XFX 6870's!

Enjoy the overclocking guys! Now let's see how well these cards can compare to their younger brothers....:toast:

TriXX and MSI AB in one day man oh man they know how to get a Overclocker really excited!!!

Well I meant to see how the 6870 will compare in overclocking to the 6850.... Yeah I ha a RAID 0 failure today.... so I am in the mist of a rebuild with a new drive. But when that's done I can't wait!! :toast:

If I remember correctly you might be able to get around that by "EnableATIOverclock" in the CFG files. I believe that gets rid of the cap. I could be wrong though that could just get rid of the cap on the Clocks or neither of them I will have to try it later.... Just a heads up if you want to try it. :toast:

EnableUnofficialOverclocking = 0 <--- change to 1 but make sure Overdrive is not enabled

I gave it a go but it did not help, i guess i will try an asus bios flash soon but right now I'm in the process of ripping apart my higher clocking card to install my zalman vf1000 cooler so i can run an industrial ducting fan to it and pencil mod the memory :D
