That's weird; I had similar good side-effects. After flashing to the Asus Bios, I was able to get artifact free stable @ 1300/1700. I may try to get a little higher tonight.

*Edit: I can't wait for the MSI lightning version to come out. Somehow, I have a feeling that the Bios for that card will be truly over-voltage protection unlocked and we will see higher numbers.

Got four of them coming my way of the ASUS variety, along with a fresh series of ROG boards and another 3960X. All I need now is that multi-monitor setup smile.gif

Ok, in a previous post, I mentioned I have to remount the EK waterblock (entirely my own fault, can't blame anyone else)

And that I'm out of Artic silver mx4 TIM now.

The TIM's I have now, is the one that came with my XSPC Rasa blocks and some Artic Silver 5.

The card has never been powered up, and has never been lifted off to check the spread.

Will I loose cooling performance if I unmount it, fix pads at correct places and just mount it again without applying new TIM?

The TIM that was used were Artic silver mx4.

How much tim did you use the first time? You don't need to be as precise on AMD gpus since the surface is puny. I'd even just try reusing what is already on there. If it looks messy just use a credit card and make it smooth again. Worst case break out a dab of AS5.

You should always reapply the TIM - if you remove the block and then put it back you'll be introducing air pockets which will hinder the thermal transfer.

Yar that blurry photo was taken from my iphone, that said, Rediculously fast card is redliculously fast

also, AMD eyefinity is so much easier to setup compared to nvidia surround


*Both teams plug in monitors*
*both teams turn on pc*
*Both teams go into the multi display setup wizard
Nvidia: *Screws around with the cables making sure they are in, AND what order they should be in*
AMD: *Please select the display that is lit up on the control panel* *Click*
NVidia: *Starts going back and fourth in the wizard to try and line monitors up into 1-2-3*
AMD: *Please select the second display that is lit up in the control panel* *Click*
Nvidia: *COntinues to screw around with the wizard, before starting to slowly manualy move plugged in monitors*
Amd: Congratulations, your new eyefinity setup is ready to go.

Nvidia....*Ten minutes later it finaly works..*
