I want to buy it but i think that my case is not tall enough for it, and there is a steel bar across the the top!
Can you run furmark or OCCT and tell me your LOAD temps on 900/1100 stock voltage? or just LOAD temps on stock clock and stock voltage?
In OCCT im getting about 103C on the VRM which is crazy!
TESCO hah haar.. ok. so!
Well ,got my s1 from overclockers... well , its rated at 120 W but thats a dumb figure.. throw in a pci blower (like ma cool zalman double ball bearing 92mm silent) or any fan and ur good2go w/ anything <5970 ??
The s1 is not as wide as it seems... ots massive on a card.. make me laugh.. but IMO if u have abt 14.5 cms from side to side(the inner width of ur cabinet), its gonna work.. U'll have to cut the vrm coolers though.. easy enough- they're aluminium,.
used it last on a 260 gtx that's lying in the uk ... and dead... lol. Is on it's way back this month ( around the 22nd) so if u want to wait for my testing ., by all means,, but TBH, just jump the gun and get urself one of these bad babies.. the TIM is pretty good too !!
Unfortunately, my MSI non ref card doesnt give a real reading in any app on the VRM temps... stupid that asus and msi left this out.. sapphire on its dumbest cooler on the 6850 cools the VRMs...
hey , must be freezing rite now .. why bother w/ an s1 ?? s1's mainly for easy cleaning and hot dusty lands such as mine..
Where do you put up ? I visited ur little island ( rochester.. and around) this summer and I must say, the British are as fine a people as they come!
If u want more specifics.. check out the website,,, and then goooooooogle
