@ Mumbles720

I would cut off the bottom floor, the floor between the PSU & the Mobo... I also don't like it.. that 2nd video card is too close to it

or save $$$ and buy a bigger/different case

Oh come on now. Do we all have our anal retentive head gear on today?



Of course there is a difference. But it's minor compared to the heat buildup incurred from the lack of airflow when almost directly against the divider.

Getting a 5870 is almost TWICE the expense of owning two 5770s'. In fact the gent ALREADY owns them. Be realistic here. You can be anal retentive and jump all over my choice of words or you can just leave it alone.

In the end we all should pretty much agree that buying a new GPU while nice does not fix the issue. Because eventually he'll want to upgrade and XFire again. Then he's stuck in the exact same predicament.

" Do I upgrade to 5970 or do I get a new case..." I guarantee that some people here are "damn the consequences! Upgrade Upgrade Upgrade always upgrade!"

So to me it's not as noticeable as starving your system of cool air to ingest and get rid of the heat.

It also is right on top of the of the front panel connections.(SEE PHOTOS) The only options I came up with are:

buying a new case
OR
buying a new motherboard. From what it looks like is that mine has a bad layout with the bottom pci slot is too close to the end of the board.
OR
buying a one card, a 5870

If you need more information just ask and PLEASE HELP.

Thanks, Brian
EASY! Just remove the plastic dividers there - It will grab air from the PSU / HD chamber.

Have you ever Xfired two 5770s. They scale really well. You almost get a 60%boost. I am pretty sure that is what the benchmarks put it at. He would def see a big drop in performance.

Take 3dmark Vantage with one OC'd at 1000/1300 I see a gpu mark of about 9500. With the two I see about 15500. I will provide proof later if neccesary.

Not trying to be stupid with you but please do some research if you post something informative like that.

there you go again. its not a minor difference. i have a trifire setup with a 4th card for physx so i know all about heat, it can be overcome with proper fan placement/airflow. come on dude, this is beginner stuff.

True story

They scale very well. My pci slots are x16/x4 and I had similar results, mine were in around a 50-60% bump (havent tested with new drivers those were with the first generation ones). Basically what you would expect adding two cards. Which is impressive. Youll get close to 5870 (stock) performance if you OC them slightly.

Pretty solid for I'd dare to say 95% of games @ 1920x1080 where you can pretty much turn all the goodies up

Download Afterburner set a custom fan curve and they dont go above 75 as long as your case isnt an oven, and I dont have AC in the stupid humid mid-western summer

Thanks for the XFire 5770 reference. Great WOO HOO that changed what and how?

THE FRIGGIN ISSUE IS...

Drop 5770 from a PAID for set and get new case...

Just purchase 5870 and KEEP the problematic case....

People should stop bustin my balls over poorly used words.

Sorry I put it in the context that I did.

Point is if he drops one 5770 and gets a new case to run the pair in AGAIN...

PROBLEM FRIGGIN SOLVED!'

How old are you guys that you gotta bust peoples balls over a gaff of words?

I didn't tell him to NEVER run it again. I gave him reasonable feedback. If you used your friggin brains for something beside a seat cushion you coulda let my gaff slide.

But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO you gotta break my balls.

The above is it wrong or right? Should he spend MORE money than necessary on a 5870 (which be honest, you'd want to XFIRE them right?) or get a new case?

If so then please ST F U and move on. It's done.
