My case is some sort of a cheap server high tower or whatnot that i found back in the days in my country (5-6y ago) with a filter in front and a 120mm fan to suck in from that front where the HDD bay is then 1 at the back to exhaust and a Thermalright Inferno FX-14 on the CPU running at 55 C under load with yet a 3-rd 120mm fan on there. I lately replaced them
Then it has 1 SSD and 7 more HDD drives that fill up all the bays.

I don't think turned off fans of AIB card under load will rly work with my setup. Wouldn't it require a lot of airflow to work on passive cooling?
I was thinking that the reference (the one that we could see in one of those leeks) seems quite good and it will be pushing air out rather than the AIB cards that are actually just rotating the air inside the case ?

As SuperZan is suggesting maybe the reference is just about what i need and even thou 20-30$ extra on the AIB cards to not be that much more seems kind a pointless.
My thought is the reference blower style might be better for me. That's what i can't decide on.


On a much more related note. I do hope AMD lifts NDA today biggrin.gif
If they are lifting it then it better be today as on monday the 27-th it will be kind a pointless to do so. smile.gif

you could put another fan after the HDD cage and your airflow would be just fine. Cards turn off fans @idle, not under load.

I heard from reviewers the average OC is around 1330-1350 MHz. The highest clock I'm aware of is 1379 MHz. Of course all reference cards.

Then im giving +100 on custom pcb and only golden chips will pass 1.5 GHz.

Seems realistic, no company would leave much headroom if possible anymore otherwise you have to charge less for your product.

The glory days of manual OC's are dead.

Or it's limited by the reference 6-pin power connector?

Crossfire reference cards with fan speeds at 49% and 44%.

Now as for whycry's comment about oc maxing out around 1380mhz, if that's high for reference, that makes the rumoured customs make more sense if they're indeed able to reach 1500+

Only 5 more days to find out

It's getting meh everyday lol. but for 240$ even 390 performance with 120w is good enough deal. maybe more performance with upcoming drivers ? ( hint 7970 )
post #1510 of 2870
Not the best news but still rumors. Just like 1080, I will trust numbers achieved here by regular owners over reviews anyway. Might just be 980 performance across the board but still mighty impressive for a budget card at $200. I spent about as much for my 270X a couple years ago and this thing will be nearly twice as fast at max OC.
