And yeah the Sapphire HD-6970 vents the heat out the Rearplate so might make a good card combination ? And if you ACT NOW ... it's still on sale w/ a MIR at NewEgg ... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102918 ... normally $360, on sale $350, plus -$30 MIR expires 10/31/2011 SO HURRY ! = $320 + Free Shipping + some lame free gift.
Ok after hours and hours of testing last night on through to this morning.. The unlocked 6950 is unstable at stock 6970 clocks 1.3v reaching 95C under load.. that to me is not good for a 24/7 OC.. I was getting freezes as well as screen tear while in games. Getting artifacts in furmark to.. So I went ahead and returned both cards this afternoon and got 2 6970's. Received 2 more copies of dirt 3 as well... So I got the new cards in and about to run some tests in BF3..
will report back results.
Thanks again for all the help and advice from everyone that took the time to read and post
