Yeah, that's how I generally come up with classified prices. List it for what I think the product is actually worth. Crap these days is over priced. lol

I just found a better deal on a pair of these cards: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1617586
Buy 2 get $80 off.
If I had just waited I'd have saved $180 total.
2014 is turning into a clone of 2013, for me.
I should really move out to Colorado and live the high life.
The new Powercolor R9 295X2 is looking even better: http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_radeon_r9_295x2_review,1.html If Hilbert likes them then they must be fantastic!
My ARES II was $1500 just like the 295X2. It even comes in an aluminum briefcase. It's gonna be just as scarce as an ARES II, as well.
Somebody should've said I should shut down CCC in Task Manager and just run Afterburner.
Now I can play Fallout 3 GOTY with my Lightnings.

I got a lightning today and i can say that i am disappointed with the OC capability.

at +100mv i can only get 1125mhz stable, at least the temps are great.

Just a question what are a safe voltage to use 24/7 on this card?

What exactly are you doing besides raising core and voltage? What are you testing with? That is awful low.

only running firestrike xtreme, only tested with 14.4 drivers, the screen flashes with anything lower than 100mv at 1125.

Strangely msi afterburner defaults with +63mv, so in theory im just adding +37mv.

Man, I have a 7970 lightning right now and the lack of Mini-DPs in this latest one absolutely kills it for me.

Try 13.12. Sometimes a clean driver install will do wonders. If you're coming from a Nvidia card, make sure all remnants are gone. What is your asic%?

Yes. At least i selected 50% in AB. I had 2 290x trix before. Im currently doing a clean install. Any idea why AB defaults to +63mv?
