The ASUS is a triple slot card, which I don't have room for. From what I've seen only the Lightning and ASUS have a backplate.

edit: Newegg's got the Lightning for $480 + Dirt Showdown right now on rebate. Anybody think it's worth it?

I just got a 3b bluescreen error when disabling crossfire on a fresh install of windows 7. I also got a verticle line flash across my screen twice as I am typing this very message! Is one of my GPU's on it's way out?

Did the one with the lower asic reading overclock better under water? I'm confused as to how a gpu with a higher asic rating can overclock better on air and one with a lower can overclock better on water :/

mmm... i was asking because getting any other 7970 is going to be at least $50 more expensive and if i'm only going to get a few more frames out of one that reaches 1250mhz over 1150mhz i dont think its really worth it is it? So i guess its just a bit of lottery right?

I am running 12.6 at the moment and I have noticed that a ton of games run fantastic but then there are other games that dont run great at all. For some reason I can play BF3, Crysis 2 and higher end games with ease but then I load up Worldofwarcraft and I am getting some skipping here and there where I never had it before.

 

I'm sorry but AMD needs to fix there friggin drivers

Quick question guys. I have a xfx 7970 under water. (black edition DD, useless imo)

Anyways, was at micro center today and saw a vision tek 7970 for 360 and bought it as it was a steal imo. If I put a Wateblock on and crossfire, it will work because their both 7970 correct? Same architecture, etc? Thanks!
