Ive got the sapphire 5870 but havent pushed it very much, it seems to run a little hot when under load, around 76C, but its fast! The only problem I've run into is I get really bad tearing and lag when in full screen on opengl programs, (doom 3).

Hours and hours, and I have an insanely clean case (we won't talk about my radiator and state of distilled water - we'll get to it this week)..

first thing noticed, this board is easily 2.5, 3 inches longer than my 780G....

No complaints on the install, minor grubbings would be that they should not have designed the front panel connectors right above those handy little buttons...

didn't even see the temperature monitor last night, it must be hiding below my 4870...I'll have to look at lunch..

screwed around for a bit but this was WAY late into the night...so my only goal was to get into windows.

got in with 550 BE@ 3.2 with RAM running at 1333. Will tweak that later

BIOS flash to 1.6 at lunch, and then I'm gonna unlock the cores - will give update after lunch.

And yes, will need you guys in a bit.

Wish there was a line by line BIOS settings guide. Ton's more than my 780G offered......

Crossfire??.....as Quint said in Jaws "We're gonna need a bigger boat." - case in this case (no pun intended). This board quickly humbled my mid-sized case.

what are your fan settings set to? my 4870 rarely ever passes 65c under load.

I did a fresh install of win 7 last night and did some tests. i think i might have got it stable at 3.8ghz..well atleast alot more stable than before. I ran prime95 for 20min and the temps rose to about 59c@1.475v. So i just backed it down to 3.6ghz and im gonna stay there till i get better cooling. I wanted to go water but that doesnt seem possible with my money situation right now. What would be a better cooler? Scythe push pull or maybe a Prolimatech Megahalems Push Pull?

Bios v1.6 official seems to be working well for members right now. So far I haven't noticed any 'bugginess' in it.

I've just been running my fans on auto in ati overdrive, I just went in there and set them to 100% to see what it sounded like and I basically started a plane. The auto settings seem to not be changing the fan speeds to keep them lower, what do you keep yours at? Or do you use a third party gpu controller?

keep it at 50-60% and youll do alot better temps.

Scythe Mugen 2 in push/pull seems to be compete pretty well with the Megahalemsn in push/pull. Those temps are actually really high, considering you have an aftermarket cooler. You might want to look into trying to reseat the cpu cooler, with the reapplication of thermal paste and all. I'm running my 955 at 1.49V, and it doesn't surpass 58C.
