But seriously, I expected more. But I always expect more than I get. That's life. A whole lot of tweaking to do still. Some guys are getting quadfire to work, so I'll just have to figure out how. Maybe it doesn't like the unlocked MSI BIOS - might go back to ASUS BIOS.

That's why you can't buy high overclocked scores. Even with top equipment it takes a lot of work and you have to earn them. How impressive would they be if you didn't?



HX1000 runs trifire just fine, and would probably do quad OK if everything isn't heavily overclocked. Four 4890 Toxics stressed it bad.

I use a dual PSU setup with an HX1000 and a PCP&C 750W Silencer. (Actually, it's a tri-PSU setup because I have a little 200W Silverstone that is permanently dedicated to fans and pumps).
Hi Patch,

Can you do me a favour and provide me with figures on how much a Quad-Fire system draws on stock clocks for the 5870's on both idle/load. It would be much appreciated.

Mine is coming next month, I still haven't decided XFX, Sapphire or ASUS. Can I join now ?

Just reapplied my thermal paste and the factory paste was terrible as usual. Along with the screws on the PCB you have to take off two little black screws (circled in red) in the back by the exhaust vent and maybe even the screws by the DVI ports(circled in blue). I took the DVI screws off first so idk if you need to take them off. The heatsink had some pretty big scratches on it. Also there was a little thermal pad that was crushed and looked like it was about to completely come off.

Just tested and my temps went up by about 4c . It could be my ambients right now. Im comparing them to another SS and I think I had my AC on at the time of that. wont be able to retest until Monday tho and I don't want to reapply because I'm afraid those pads will fall apart.

Lol, I completely took that metal plate off the back of my card permanently to get it to fit in my case...

Aren't you experiencing a burn in period right now with the thermal paste? By tomorrow with enough time to set and dry properly the paste should be burned in and you should see lower temps.

Using OCZ freeze there's no cure time.

Well... nevermind then. Pray for cooler temps?
