I want to buy a 285 Black Edition. Are there any waterblocks on the market right now that support the 285, or do they carry the same form factor as the 280?
post #4 of 599
they are excellent cards in my opinion, I waited for these instead of buying the 280, they use of less power, run cooler and they oc like a champ bought mine with a 702 oc and run fairly cool and was able to oc to 744 on air with no problem and going for higher when I get the time

No issues with my xfx at stock speeds.

Do you get any squealing noise with this card when its under load.I get it but its a common issue with alot of 280 gtx's.
So far I have overcloked it to 715 on the core and 1323 on the memory.How far have you overcloked it to

It's not worth it- it's just basically an EVGA "SSC" gtx 280 55nm revision

Just has a slightly faster clock and is 55nm- not worth the money imo- for much less you can get a 4850x2 or two 9800gtx+ in SLI that can outpreform it by far.

mmmmm, I have rivatuner installed, but am not to familiar with it. Looks like idle core is 47C, I played farcry2 for a bit and it got up to 70C. Fan duty cycle stayed the same at 40% or 1430rpm.
