Not to mention hes using modified versions of the card and overclock utility. To the OP; you should clearly state this in your OP in bold text.

I personally think that its dirty to trick people like that. But whatever.
Ah. The usual ATI owner.



GTX 465 825Mhz On air. Going for 900 next week. Seems like I have alot of thermal headroom. And his 980x is the best example, with the processor unbound this gives us better results which are more leaning to the limitations of a graphics card.

They were ran at the same speeds on the processor for both cards so cooling method is nulled for the comparison. I'm not using modified versions of anything. This is a retail sample that I got from newegg using programing limits in the retail afterburner/nvidia inspector.

H50 as watercooling? Yes, maybe the most primitive type of water cooling, but hardly what I would call over a typical high end air cooler for performance.

Every user on this forum has the ability to reach the same scores as I. Nothing fancy-dancy going on here. Just an unlocked 465 going toe-to-toe with a 5870. Nothing more, nothing less.

Good job. Need more indications that this is an unlocked card though.
