Great design Great temps ran some Uniengine and 3dMark last night on stock settings. Card did not go above 61c. Don't now how fast my fans were turning but I barely notice them. My ambient temp in my room was 69 degrees fahrenheit . Didn't have much time to play with it yesterday and now I'm at work mad.gif Oh and it has Hynix memory biggrin.gif ASICS score was 82.2

Nice (69'F is 20.6'C btw). So it was roughly a change in temps of 40'C,
Is it luck on which memory you get? And whats the difference, I know nothing about memory tongue.gif I guess is better than the rest?

Well like 100% members tongue.gif on OCN prefer Hynix over Elpida mem because they usually overclock higher. Just make sure your case is big enough for a foot long card





Oh and when the card reaches 61c that blue Sapphire logo turns yellow and at 80c it turns red. Yellow does look pretty for some odd reason, haven't seen it go red yet.

That glow is sexy! I think I will actually get one of these! I have a Define R4 with the top HDD cage taken out, I looked it up a few days ago and it fits (iirc) thumb.gif

Of course biggrin.gif

Newegg has them at $449.99 right now

but they rarely have them in stock redface.gif


Tried out some game yesterday and to be honest my CF 6950's 2gb was really struggling at 1440p comparing to this card.thumb.gif

I'm in the UK and only know of 1 retailer selling it at £379.99 + £8 p+p so basically £390.00

$654.00 US dollars ..................................... sadly us Americans complain about high gas prices which is about $4.00 a gallon for premium around my area. tongue.gif

I am also interested in how it sounds whilst gaming tongue.gif Would you say it is acceptable and not excessive?

(Sorry for questions, you are our only source of info redface.gif )

Also is the default clock 1030 or 1050? It says both on the UK sellers site rolleyes.gif
