Now I'm worried.

He raised the voltage a little and installed net frame work 4. He actually sold it back to me as he knew I loved this card and saved up for it . After doing what he did I got one crash (BF3 after that stupid patch). It works very well now. The other thing I did after some tinkering, was set a fan profile. The card gets choppy when the temps get around 65c. After the fan setup and now the card stays under 65c it kick a$$.

Thinking about getting one of these sometime but kept seeing a bunch of people in other places saying that using an AMD cpu is bottlenecking these gpus

Is this true or just the usual fanboi bull----?

your current cpu will NOT bottleneck a 7800 series card, i was running a 720 x3 stock and it never hiccuped a single time, so your fine =)

Cool. That was a nice thing your buddy did for you. Can't imagine net framework having any effect on the gpu but certainly the voltage to the gpu would. Glad to hear your back to using the card. Yeah, regarding that BF3 patch. Holy $hit that was big. Also, setting a custom fan profile is the way to go. I like to keep a 40% fan under 2d and low load 3d, and at 50 degrees C set the slope to 1 up to 80 degrees C at which point I have the fan at 100%.

At first I didn't really think I needed a fan profile, as this card ran very cool compared to my 470. I forgot to mention also that there is a program for net frame work that puts it back in order also (forget what its called). The net frame work from my understand helps software and hardware work together. The BF3 patch has some lag issues and from reading EA forums will cause crashing. Your profile is very similar to mine,but at 70c its 100% fan. Still very very quiet.
