Mate, lookin good.

460 2gb card? Seems nice for sli, two of those equal a 580, but with more vram, which would be nice for recent games like Skyrim. biggrin.gif

I was tempted to buy two of them, but I'm on a tight budget. Still, it performs really well on it's own. I get an average of 48fps in Crysis 2 in Ultra with High Res Textures and DX11 Tesselation enabled.

Yeah, it's a nice card and overclocks decently.
You can delid those and lower temps a lot, coupled with the "mod" you can get 30-40c lower temps and higher overclocks. biggrin.gif

Sorry, you've lost me. Are you saying I can under-clock the card and still get the same performance with lower temps?

I over-clocked it last night, managed to get 850Mhz Core(From 700Mhz) and 1900Mhz Memory(From 1800Mhz). It ran stable for about an hour in Ugine Valley(at highest settings) with temps around 68C. I've dropped it back to stock for now, I don't want to overwork it, lol.

Nope, I meant you can lower temps and overclock even more if you remove the heatspreader that covers the gpu core and apply a special liquid metal paste on it. You can then remount the heatspreader and put regular thermal paste on it and attach the cooler back in place.
Easy 20c temp drop, with the stock cooler.

I'm intrigued, is there a tutorial on doing this somewhere? I am looking into water cooling my system, not to soon though.

There was a thread here...there's the Ivy bridge delidded club, but there was a fermi gpu thread. Let me search for it. (remember that the results you see there can be improved by 15c by using coollaboratory liquid ultra paste instead of regular tims on the die)
