Windows and 2 HD 5850

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am not an english speaking person so I hope you will undersatand me :D

 

I have on my windows 7 64 bit 2 ATI Sapphire 5850 Xtreme. With TRIXX I can overclock the first one at 1000MHz for the GPU, 350MHz for the Memory and 1200mV (this is not for game or benchmark)

 

I want the same configuration on my second card but I don't know how to do it. I tried to use AMD Engine Control Center, it OC both but I can't go over 900MHz for the GPU and I can't change voltage.

Same with MSI After Burner, I can't go over 1000MHz or change voltage.

 

I already tried to change the .cfg of MSI AB but this didn't change anything.

 

Did my only solution is to flash the bios?

 

If this is the case can you give me an appropriat bios for my card?

 

Thanks :thumbsup:

The card may be simply unable to get that high, not all chips come out equal overclockers.

 

That one 5850 @ 1000mhz is phenominal though! my 5970 can't even get that high even with max voltage

They can all reach 1000MHz, I tried all of them 1 by 1 and all can reach 1000MHz/350MHz/1200mV

 

I just don"t konw how overclock the second one

you may not be able to get as high an OC while running them in tandem. 1Ghz is a very good OC and not all cards will reach that

 

350Mhz is is the 'throttled down ' power state 0, the factory clock for the memory on that card is 1000mhz (4000mhz effective)

 

In the Trixx software , look for a setting that will apply settings to all graphic cards , or something to that effect.

I use the card to hash so I just need a good GPU clock and don't care about memory clock.

I have 3 cards and 2 mobo, each card have been tested and a mobo alone and each of them reach the 1000MHz (I tested them with TRIXX).

Now I have one of them on a mobo at 1000/350/1200mv so it's OK. But on the second mobo when I use TRIXX with the good option that normaly OC both there is just one card overclocked. I suppose that TRIXX card overclock 2 card but only if they are in crossfire and it's not the case in my mobo.

oh i see, I assumed you were C. them. yeah that setting is only for 'linked adapters'

Just look at my System builds link. My dual SLI GTX 570's or dual HD 6970's won't get as high an overclock than if they were running in single configuration.
