but the Athlon II X4 will be your biggest boost, at this point. GPU can always be better, but it seems you are rather set in that department.
Do you think a 5830 would offer much more performance? Or do you think I could overclock the HAWK to be the same performance?

Ok, do you know anything about video card overclocking, I never got good at it. I will get ramsinks for the RAM on the back, but I have no idea if the cooler covers the RAM near the GPU. What do you think my limit w/ the memory and core would be on stock and on 1.2v?

well, the HAWK cooler needs ramsinks on all eight ramchips, but has no clearance for them on the GPU side. So you have to rely on the downward air from the two fans to cool them. Have OCD in setting the the ramsinks on there. Overclocking is easier without a crossfire setup (in my experience), and I use MSI afterburner for that. eVGA precision works, too (even on ATi cards).

That being said, Bo_Punk_2.0 did a nice review on the HAWK

The hawk cooler doesn't touch the ram chips, its fins sit about 3mm above them.

I don't understand the bold? Do you think there are any low profile sinks that will fit underneath the ones near the GPU core?

I was really annoyed by one ramsink that I did not *exactly* set perfectly on a ramchip. So I procede to rip it off. And the ramchip came right off with it.


Needless to say, I was lucky to get the RMA accepted. The Bo_Punk_2.0 review seems to imply the top ramchips are adequately cooled by the two fans on the MSI HAWK.

one of my unlucky XFX 9500gt cards

This was before I joined OCN, but a little after I got the idea of overclocking.

EDIT: I hot glued the RAMchip back on for the RMA Dirty, cheating, and probably why XFX now has to cut costs on all of their products

Another Q, (SORRY EVERYONE GOT GOING OFF TOPIC, THIS IS MY LAST Q :"p) but did the card work w/o that chip? Is that even possible?
