The theory being it would be okay running 390/430/820 IF 430/430/820 ran without problems, it does.
BTW the bfg stock 2D clock is 390.
As far as it goes anyway, I'm done with the bfg card, the leadtek
definately is king.

As expected it runs much better then the bfg.
cooler and faster!
Shame on bfg for ever putting out a garbage card.
IMO that was bad marketing strategy!
I see your reasoning, however you are confusing me again ?

A typical 5900XT card is set at 300/390/700, which is 300 in 2D, 390 in 3D and Memory at 700 all the time ! And the only other important speed in bios is throttling which is set at 375 ! So why your original bios would have 2D set at 390 baffles me ?

A 2D speed of 390 would be way too much overkill ?


Is the Leadtek here then ?

If not, then you speak nicely to that BFG card as it is all you have until Leadtek up and running !
The more I know, the more I know I don't know
