5970 with 285 benches before reformat
Well got one of these bad boys.Waiting on another.Thought I do a few quick benches before format.
I reserve jugement till after format of computer.

First up quick and dirty overclock with MSI afterburner,just using core voltage,because Overvolt tool from Sapphire does not reconize the OC edition for which it was made.
Core 935
Memory 1100

To my surprise there were no crashes when clocks were set and I ran about 20 game benchmarks.

Very nice benches!

I have to say it's nice to see that overclocking the card can be a successful enterprise. From what I have read on varous sites around the net, OCing a 5970 seems to be a bit of a crap shoot. I am glad you had a good experience with it.
