Bought a 2nd hand Sapphire HD5970 OC Edition video card off gmeup on OCAU forums for AUD$30 less than the average Nvidia GTX 480 asking price!








Plan to put this HD5970 OC into action with 2x HD5870 for quad-GPU crossfireX - dealing with 3x physical video cards easier than 4x!

Came across a few teething/driver issues. I used HD5870 with 10.4x beta drivers, but seems 10.4x beta doesn't recognise HD5970's 2nd GPU for some reason, hardware device manager showed the following when I tried HD5870 + HD5970 OC



Then tried single HD5970 OC and same issue on 10.4x beta catalyst drivers. So removed the 10.4x beta drivers and installed 10.4 official catalyst drivers and it picked up the HD5970 OC properly



Then next issue was with newer drivers and ATI enabling ULPS which seems to conflict with adjusting settings and voltages in Afterburner 1.6.0 beta 5 - see http://i4memory.com/f18/sapphire-597...oltages-23844/

Some registry magic to disable ULPS should fix it apparently. Will do this tomorrow

Still not bad for Sapphire HD5970 OC so far at 1.049v stock volts 800/1200
