    I just now trying that, the fan control seems to work well when minimized and I love the task bar monitoring, I have the GPU temp and fan speed showing, but wouldn't you know it, the core voltage doesn't work, still I can live with that, I don't think it worked in Trixx 4.1 either.

    The Voltage Adjustment doesn't work on our OC ards due to a different Voltage controller being used than was used on the Non-OC cards.

    I just downloaded the latest version of Trixx (4.2) and set the core to 1.150v (max) I then ran GPU-Z and this reflects the setting, does this mean that it is so, when you exit Trixx and restart GPU-Z it still shows 1.150v, opinions! (BTW I currently have the CCC uninstalled)

    1.15 Volts in the Default Maximum for our Gigabyte 6850OC Card.
    Trixx does NOT allow you to alter that.

    Why does GPU-Z show 0.95v then before Trixx was run?? maybe I accidentally set it back?? If this is your card please answer this-
    The only reason I purchased this card was after reading this review:
    GIGABYTE Radeon HD 6850 1GB Video Card Overclocked :: TweakTown USA Edition
    I now discover that this worked only on earlier cards, why did you change it/lock it out? This is unfair to people that purchased this card, had I known this I would have stuck with a HIS card, would have been cheaper too?
    NOT A NICE THING TO DO!

    .95 is the Minimum for this OC Card and 1.15 is the Maximum.
    On the Non-OC Cards the memory controller voltage can be adjusted with Trixx or MSI AfterBurner but not on our cards, it just gets set to the maximium Allowed Voltage.
    I test Flashed the Gigabyte 6870 BIOS to my card and the Voltage jumped up to 1.175 but I still couldn't get a Reliable, Stable OverClock any higher than with the 1.15 Voltage of the Original BIOS so I flashed the Original Back just to be safe.
    I also bought this card thinking it would be More overclockable than the NON-OC card but in fact it isn't.

    Hi Juan, sorry I over reacted, when I read "our Gigabyte 6850OC Card" I immediately assumed you were working for Gigabyte rather than meaning cards like ours! All in all the overclocking is still quite good, I just have to look at it as a fail safe! Certainly runs cool!
    Thanks.

    LOL, No Problem.
    Believe me, I understand.
    I kicked myself after seeing that I couldn't OC it as high as the Non-OC cards.
    But like you said Overall, I'm still very happy with the speed, Quality and low operating temps of this card.
