It has been a while since we've seen a review of an unbalanced Crossfire setup, so drop by Overclockers Club to see an HD 5870 and an HD 5850,
that they managed to get their hands on somehow, paired on a Core i7 920 system.  They overclocked the HD5850 to the same speeds as the HD5870, 1GHz GPU and 1200MHz for the memory.  The boost they saw was impressive, the Catalys

What could possibly be better than an HD5970?  An HD 5970 overclocked from 725 MHz to 935 MHz on the core and from 4000MHz to 5240 MHz
on the GDDR5, that's what!  Since AMD has taken down their overvolting tool it is up to MSI's Afterburner to bump the default 1.05V GPU core to 1.1625V, as you need more power to manage this overclock.  The Guru of 3D walks you through the perils and benefits of such a hefty overclock along with showing you all the steps you need in their article.
