Aah, down here you're not allowed petrol ones because of the animals. Leccy only. Damn wildlife
Well the 6950 is in and running, gonna leave it for a couple of days before I flash to 6970, so far it's looking good though!
I started noticing a little bit more of this horizontal artefact in BC2 that appeared, only happens when I'm in tanks.
Hope the new cats will amend these abnormalities.
WHO is that in your sig? she is fine!
It could be that with the full 6970 Bios your memory don't like the extra voltage that it's specced for, for that reason alone I will flash just to the modded Bios where only the shaders are unlocked and no voltages are raise, I can always raise them a little in RBE if I want more.
For Nitro RC cars (im into electric) try
in the UK. For £30 quid that thing seems a proper bargain well done. Hope you enjoy it!
Innocent.... just to give you an update, I couldn't wait! So I have taken initially the soft option and flashed Rui's modded XFX 6950 Bios just to unlock the extra shaders, I have not tinkered yet anymore so I have the full 1536 shaders, I have gone +5% only on the powerplay thingy just to make sure that there is enough juice to prevent any throttling and currently have her at the CCC max of 840mhz, nothing else in the modded Bios is touched like voltages or clock speeds. I can report that she is running smooth and no artifacts after 30 minutes of Furmark, even the temps seem no different from the basic 6950 configuration (idles in the forties, fan never gets high enuff to invade my drums). I am sure this way will avoid any possibility of issues down the road. I might overclock a little further and even do a bench or two with Afterburner on higher voltage but not yet, I am happy ATM..... my concern all along with the full flash was those memory voltages which are higher in the full 6970 Bios where the memory is lower spec in the 6950.
Got my TV, 5m HDMI and 5m Aerial cable, but not my freaking wall mount! It's just laid next to me... asking to be used
Sounds like you got yourself some nice women there .
Think I'll dump the 6970 BIOS into RBE and make my own. Just have the shaders unlocked.
Virgin media's schedule for increasing upload speeds.
I feel really left out with all these new cards coming out. I got this 6850 in Decemeber for £130 to replace my old GTX260 but im starting to doubt that purchase.
Fucking hate Glasgow! its raining again and there is nothing in the fridge for munching.
EDIT: Actually know what annoys me something awful, the fact Virgin Media send me letters and leaflets advertising their products but i cant even receive Cable in my street! I can get crappy regular broadband through my phone and not fibre optic.
We had to bitch and complain for a few months before they came and dug up the place for new internet lines. Now we've got fibre optic lines which are awesome so you'd think they'd upgrade Glasgow and Edinburgh before our crappy little town.
use this one..... post 343.......
How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 695...
I actually get more artefacts with that BIOS.
The only way to really test that your card is not damaged is to flick the switch to Bios 2 and see if you are still getting them with the stock 6950 bios.
Managed to find them UK TPU logos, had a little fiddle with them too. They're the same background colours as our avatar section, and the post section.
The original BIOS is fine as is the 6970 BIOS. I'll keep fiddling. I bumped the core to 880MHz with the file you linked me to and that's when more, smaller artefacts started appearing in Burnout. In away I'm expecting the unlocked shaders to have a few issues.
Still, I'm slowing increasing the core speed to see how things improve/turnout.
NICE pics matey....
Do members wanna select one to use as a siggie?
If anybody wants a unique one let me know and I'll see what I can come up with. I'll be changing my avvy shortly.
Ahhhh another day, another week and another attempt at trying to oc tattys 5850
