Thread: Gigabyte X58A-UD7 Gulftown smackdown at 6GHz looking pretty easy

    OK so here we go i did the first very quick GPU test due to some early cold issues

    first of all.... >> Gigabyte 5870SOC card has no cold bug woohoo so you can run it at full blast and not think about it however memory chips on any GFX cards will eventually get a bit too cold so that is one thing that needs to be managed. The way i will fix that is same as i did on GTX275 lightning card by using Inox grease which will not freeze or melt any any temp lol....youngpro's tip that one from last year's testing we did for GPU competitions...:thumbup:

    in the first few tests i went up to 1350/1300 (escaped half way through) but until i get this grease sorted right i wont know if i will be able to get more or not

    i used 1.45v or so.......card didnt like 1.47 so im guessing its hitting some ocp or whatever i dont know....blank screen when it hits 3d

    here is a canyon in 06 (heavy GPU test) at 1300/1300 which looks fine at 157FPS so it wasnt throttling



    Here are a few photos from the bench session

    Damn, looks cold over there!!

    Is Gigabyte releasing a voltage tweak software with this card, or does others work like the MSI one? Or is your voltage changes hard mods only?

    HAHA, I hear that!

    Tell them they should at least release some form of it, to keep up with the competition.
