i always thought it was like a cf or sli on 1 pcb?
when i look at it your way and hokies,
its kinda of a marketing trick, and its more expencive most of the time then a cf or sli,
i saw a 7990 for 1000 euro today, rather have 2X 7970 then
more what hokies calls, E-peen? strangest word ive learned this year for sure, E-peen ..

Nah the 6gb / 4gb Vram with only useable 2/3gb is not E-Peen it is a marketing ploy or "Gimmick" like Amd did with the 8350 with the 4ghz factory clock.

A duel gpu card is just SLI on 1 PCB..

Think of it as gimped SLI as the duel gpus never perform nearly aswell as 2 separate cards there mostly for space saving.

if i look at the pricing, they should perform better then 2 cards..

Nah hot poor performing card that can very easy beat by 2 289$ each 7950s.

E-Peen would be Quad sli /Quad fire water cooled voltage unlocked with a 3960x cpu.

Yeah, or dual socket EVGA Sr-X (with locked) Xeons and quad channel 64gb ram and quad-sli 680 classifieds lol
Watercooled of course, with every component in the loop, including a waterblock for the power button too! xD
Useless but massive E-peen...I'm not into that.

So...... Im amazed at Intel after an hour long phone call they decided that after I told them that I overclocked it to the wall didn't tell them I popped das lid and sanded it. They went and said oh yeah we will just give you a new i7 3770K...........

Eat it AMD.

Also asus wont answer me lol. So ill get a hold of them later but yeah its amazing. I. Love. Intel.
post #4636 of 33641
Awesome man! biggrin.gif Good to hear...Asus can be more of a pain for rma's from what I've heard so far.
Hopefully they won't take long to answer, maybe you can get a refund and grab a new board lol

Lol I would enjoy that so much lol.
post #4638 of 33641
You never know...

I'm hunting for some value ram, too bored at work lol
post #4639 of 33641
I was hoping that cpu lived, every time I've seen 00 the chip lived to post another day. Have you tried it in a different board?

EDIT: Hey FtW, that BBSE guy said 'express or nothing for foreign buyers' so I said screw him :/
