Or sell both and the money you get from them should be enough for a 787.
Edit: I meant a 7870 graphics card... not a Boeing 787 tongue.gif
haha Damn, I really wanted a Boeing and you got me all excited. I'm not sure crossfire is worth the pain of setup that a lot of people report, although my big case looks so empty without it frown.gif

After how long it took to RMA it I'm not going back through it all again frown.gif

It's a big blameshift at the moment, the shop I sent it back to for testing sent it off to MSI and said they had no control over what MSI sent back. Unless there's hope for a neat and quick resolution direct from MSI (I don't like my chances) I'm going to stick with running the single 6950. If anyone here is familiar with the issues I was having with Crossfire in the first place (didn't work, just caused me headaches for 2yrs) it's still an upgrade because effectively I only ever had a single 6870 running.

You could always trade for a 6870. If I only had one I would trade you for it. thumb.gif

My new rig's finally built. First time boot with a sempron (to get the 3027 BIOS for the FX-8350) gave some trouble tho redface.gif



After resetting a couple of times it booted without a problem and the BIOS updated to 3027 succesfully. Switched CPU to the FX-8350 and installed the Corsair H60 2013 edition. Test running soon after biggrin.gif

Did you sleeve that cabling or buy it like that? (I can't tell what your PSU is from the pic)

It's a EVGA SuperNOVA NEX750G Gold. It's decent value for money since it's fully modular, pre-sleeved, gold certified and has 5 year warranty (EU). Only downside i've seen so far is the big handle on the back, but I don't want to void the warranty by removing it smile.gif

I'm replacing the sidewindow for a full plexiglass and the 2 front intake fans for higher RPM ones for more air intake coming weekend.

looks ok to me, as long as you have the head room with heat it will "Turbo" to 4.1ghz on all cores, single threaded will jump to 4.2 ( although in in windows 8 i very rarely saw it do that )

No heavy load/benching yet but the rig's idling around 28c so that's probably the case then. Thanks for clearing that up thumb.gif

gaming does depend more on your video card, I don't know if you would notice any difference with a new cpu and a old 6870 edit: oh its crossfire. hmmm

oh yeah i need to update that... running a single 6950 now since MSI sent me one of those back instead when I RMA'd a dud 6870.

I was thinking 8350 + 7870 or something along those lines though, since according to 3dmark's listings a 955+7870 is not that far ahead of what i have now.....????
