Well if I can find a HD6970 at a decent price or a HD6950 that unlocks for a decent price I can do some tri-fire. I picked up a Diamond HD6950 from Fry's just to play around with and got my highest Vantage score to date, around 43k (stock clocks). It is actually performing better than when I had two HD6990's running in quadfire. I haven't even unlocked the shaders, just running it at the same speeds as the HD6990 (880Mhz/1200Mhz). Once I find a HD6970/HD6950 and put it under water I can see how high I can overclock the cards and maybe hit the 45k range.

Well utnorris ... as you may know, the Sapphire TOXIC has a pretty darn good chance at unlocking (despite snakemeds misfortune though we're still working on his) and since it's built on a Rev.2 6970 PCB it can use the FULL Cover Block off one as well unlike most other Non-Ref 6950's that can't utilize any full cover ... and it OC's pretty damn well ... I'm @ better than stock HD-6970 levels with mine ...
and running @ 41c idle on only 25% fan, so under water I'm sure you could over-volt the thing from it's 1.175v stock to 1.25v or higher and get near 1000MHz give or take right now our TOXIC clubs highest OC is at 988 Mhz / 1350 Mhz / 1536 shaders ... sounds like a challenge you'd embrace actually .

Wow MODUS ... that's a bummer, where'd you buy that ? can you return it and get your money back or RMA it maybe ? such a shame.

And how (read: where) do you overclock the card? In uefi or through Catalyst?

I may just sell my TOXIC card (take the hit financially) and get an HD6970. I saw the Sapphire HD6970 on Newegg at a greatly discounted price one afternoon and almost pulled the trigger. It was around $300, as I recall... made me think!

Then again, maybe I will just watercool and overclock my TOXIC...
I'd have to invest in a complete watercooling setup though, so for now it is but a thought... someday for sure!

Guess I'm still undecided...

Bummer!
If you can't return it... I WANT TO KNOW WHERE YOU BOUGHT IT, 'cause I don't want to do business with 'em!

It would be cool if you got a true Gen 3 board that ASUS shipped inadvertantly!
I think someone posted a BIOS for a GEN 3 board in this thread too, so it is possible, I guess.

Anyway, we like firsts around here so tell us more! We want to believe you, but our leader has a "trust but verify" sort of mindset!
So, send picutures, too!

Hey, it's Friday afternoon - Cheers to you all!

It totally sucks . I was so excited I woke up early to wait for it this morning. I bought it off another user on Canadian BST forum and so far he's being EXTREMELY helpful. I don't know how long it'll take for a claim to go through so my mATX rig will have to wait.
