Mine seems to work fine. Installed it, started up Skyrim, "Adjusting video settings.... Video settings set to Ultra quality" biggrin.gif Maxes at about 60fps in all ultra, using around 1015mb vram outdoors, but it still can dip into the 20s with a lot of fighting going on so I'll be adjusting it down some, I don't think it made it look that much better anyhow. I was running on mostly High setttings to begin with.

Before that I did about a 10 minute gpu burn in test with Kombuster, just to make sure it didn't artifact out, straight from the box.

Just a warning though, the fan can be loud on about anything over 45%, you get into the 70-80% range and its vacuum cleaner loud (maybe not quite but its a loud whir lol). Luckily at about 50% it didn't go over 60C while playing which is good enough. 45% fan speed is a little bit louder than all my case fans, but not really annoying, and it seem to hold the temp well enough. While using Kombuster it just kept going up, I think it was in the 70~ C range before I started playing with the fan to see how loud it was at certain %.

I think my cpu may finally be a bottleneck in my system since I wasn't 100% usage playing Skyrim, time to OC tongue.gif
