so - Novatech txt me at 2pm saying my refund has been processed....Im still waiting for my account to be credited with £150 ¬_¬ *taps foot like sonic da hedchog* /facepalm
im up for some pork rice hint hint*
Its 11pm - shops closed
If payment isnt in my account 2moro then I'l give them a call and ask
I've got an XFX HD 6950 on it's way, got it for £200 too! Looks like hopefully it will be a HD 6970 within about 5 minutes of receipt
Hey bit of a deal on 6970 XFX HD 6970 2GB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDMI Dual DP Out PC...
Don't know how it compares to other e-tailers.
Thats a good price for a 6970.
No brand new No mystery really, I had a £30 off voucher! Have you edited your 6970 Bios to raise voltages at all?
Not yet, haven't had the need to tbh. I've OC'd slightly to 900MHz from 6970 speeds and been too busy sorting out machines for other people and not really played much.
Tonight I'll push 910MHz and I'll see how that goes. I usually take small steps when OC'ing. I'm also slightly reluctant to push this card after my nightmare of having artefacts appear in 3DMark11 and games.
I am hungry, but all my cookware is locked in my friend'ss cupboard and he is still out. fml.
And have you increased Powerplay to 20%, yes having now read the hardware differences between the 6950 and the 6970 I am reluctant to add additional voltages beyond the 6870's reference (and higher) 3D volts. I might try powerplay +15% to be conservative and therefore trying to keep the max TDP draw to the 225W rated spec, it appears a very small minority are getting some real issues now even after re-flashing to the 6950 Bios. The way I see it, any performance increase is free performance.
A paperclip and very small screwdriver will easily sort that.
Not skilled enough to break open a lock with "circular teeth" instead of the conventional one :shadedshu
Going to find biscuits and things like that for now, and hope I can survive until he comes back
I heard that he was going up to Anfield to watch the Liverpool v Everton Game and he said that this time he wasn't coming back until Liverpool had won, expect to see him around April Thats a hell of a lot of Custard creams!!
I haven't dicked with Powerplay at all, I'll find my max stable OC at stock volts and leave it at that until my rig starts feeling the burn. Considering I can play Metro 2033 maxed out (settings in previous posts) with MLAA enabled I'm happy.
All I need now is a PCIe SSD to dump Windows and my games onto and will only then need to replace my case and get on with WC'ing it. No new hardware for me for at least 2 years!
In which case I am going out to invest in a new set of cooking pans and knives. brb.
Thanks, apparently increasing powerplay even just a little can have a large positive impact on performance, all it really does is allows the software to increase power draw which in real terms makes up for the limit set by AMD, just a 10% increase in powerplay should keep you below the 225W TDP level but you may actually find that you get a near 10% performance increase.
I might actually keep the card as a 6950 for a couple of days before I flash, simply to get a feel for the differences when I do if that makes sense.
Bro's machine is still down after a new PSU and video card, anyone have a crossfire LGA 775 board I can buy for a decent price?
he must have pissed about with it while i was fixing it the first time because i tested each part in my own rig
Someone catch me.
Just spent £372 on a 40" Toshiba, Wall Bracket, 5m HDMI and 5m Aerial extension. TV will be here tomorrow, rest within 5 days.
You're not meant to rest until the 7th day.
I'm a lazy God.
I was too impatient but Metro doesn't stutter like it did when it was a 6950.
HUSKIE is meant to be buying my Foxconn BlackOps but he is hardly on TPU anymore and he was planning on paying me before Crimbo and hasn't. However, I'll drop him a PM to see if he still wants the board and if not, it's yours for £60 (which includes next day courier delivery). I've got it sat here with me at work ready to be sent.
wow, thanks for the offer man, if the CPU is dead im just gonna rebuild the system, but if the mobo is faulty then i will definately consider that mobo in my short list of options
edit: why are you getting rid of the X48 rather than your X38?
