If you guys want to OC above overdrive's limitations try the below tool-

http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads...r_HD_5870.html

Works fine. I've made it to 935|1300 and don't think it's going further without voltage tweaks.

Haha, here is some great information!!!

PhysX with ATI + Nvidia secondary is back!! Its been cracked! yay for the interwebs.

http://physxinfo.com/news/427/modded...sx-for-radeon/

Here is an interesting read on PCI-e scaling with the 5870. Basically for folks with P35/P45 you can run a second Nvidia card for physx in exchange for 1 FPS!!

I updated idle temps, with CCC open it jumps to 3d clock speeds. Now it's correct.
