Hey guys, I'm in the market for a new graphics card. The price/performance point of the 7870 is to tempting to look past. I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with the MSI Hawk version of the card or the Gigabyte version. Both come factory overclocked at 1100 mhz. I just didn't know if the unlocked bios that you can get on the MSI version really makes it that much better than the Gigabyte version if you are looking at further overclocking it. Thanks in advanced for any info you guys might have on either of these cards.

Looks fantastic, great job!
Did you have any difficulty fitting the radiator? It's 280mm, right?

Thanks. I had to expand the 140mm mount holes to 1/4" to line up the rad holes. So that meant it lost its threads but there's threads on the rad to hold itself up. There was no way to mount a fan at the back with the H110 rad hoses in the way. I slapped on a Silverstone magnetic filter to help with dust filtration since the 2x140mm fans will naturally bring dust in without a rear fan in place.

It came from my old Dell build. It's cheap, does its job, and it fits perfectly in there.

first Carbide upgrade is complete, almost..
for some reason now I get some freezing and BSOD but it's not from my overclock or my RAM.
it's time for a fresh install I have corrupted something, I also swapped out two HDD's.
anyways it's a phone pic of the 200R with BitFenix Recon fan controller..:


edit:
some ironic news is that last night when finishing a case swap my Z77-M Pro's NIC decided t o go out.
so it seems I'm going to be using the Gene V as my primary after-all.
got my RMA approval already from ASUS, they do not play but it's the simple fact it went out in the first place.
