You're going to be happy with that, no doubt. After waiting so long, I bet you're just glad to finally get one!
They are MLC. As to the 965's you're asking about, are you referring to the 0942 FPMW that I talked of? If so, there's a thread about the 965 C3's, and flankr has the same batch I have and we both are not getting very high clocks with it. 4+Ghz stable is fine, at least on water, but over 4.1 for me will probably be a chore, if I can even get it stable. I am using a 64-bit O/S.
Actually no! I rejected when UPS delivered it. I just told them that it was the wrong Product because of the website Misposting...
Did my Reserch and Ordered a SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X 5770!!! And WOW is it cool! Literally Runs cool! My 4870 512 OC Ran Idle at 42-44*C w/ the fan running @ 70+%.
This thing bounces between 31-32 between 40+ %!!!! It's Amazing! My case are actually lower I believe. The HEAT coming off of the top (Backside) of that 4870 510mb OC was Rediculous! Seriously like 2-3 times + hotter at idle.
Anyone that has a Version1 Should SERIOUSLY think about a VAPOR-X, ANYTHING!!! LOL

Eclipse is COMPLETELY Right. Except the fact that IF one can run CL6 @ OVER 1600Mhz, like 1700+. THAT will be the exception. But how Plausible that is, is actually the case here.... So we wll see after the 17th (Actually today).

What kind of voltage are you running for 4ghz stable and what are your temps with your water cooling?
edit: I'm definitely wanting 4ghz+, ideally wanting 4.2-4.4+, willing to push my vcore fairly high
Also considering hooking my water chiller up to the new PC, just not sure if I want to go to the trouble of insulating new components from frost and risk damage....
Hey man, all I have to say is MERRY CHRISTMAS to you!!!! I think that we can all agree on that!
Keep us informed and feel free to share your excitment when you get your parts!
That's one thing that I've come to realize that is a major part of life.....
Sharing your excitement with others. It's like one of those "small things" in life!
