Nice... decide to take the risk now. However one last question... My B-day is on July 5, the 4870 should be out by then right? and it seem like the 4870 has a much better cooling solution
I think the HD4870 has 10C lower temps, I might be off by a bit. There are three HD4870's on Newegg right now. I suggest you wait for a VisionTek to appear though. They have a lifetime warranty unlike the 3 year standard warranty that all the other AIBs offer
HD4850 temps are usually 80C at load and 70C at idle. It's highly dependent on your case's temp and fan speed you set(do it manually) One thing that I have to warn you about, at this moment, ATI hasn't fully implemented a clock down driver for the HD4k. This means they will always run hot right now until a driver update. ATI releases drivers every month if you didn't know.Edited by RussianGrimmReaper - 6/25/08 at 9:06pm
