With the fan at default (im guessing 20% judging by the noise) it was at 39C, which i'm pretty impressed with, especially with the case i'm using.

NVIDIA's been creamed. The 6800 cards are only good at combat games, not Dirt2. The GTX470 beat the 6870 in Dirt2 but the 5970 is still in the lead. I think it was 5970, 480, 470, 6870, etc. for Dirt 2 Benchmarks.

I ordered two Sapphire 6870s, and they are for my brother for xmas. I'm happy with my three 5770s for now. What I really wanted was three reference 6850s but since you cannot tri/qaud fire them I was a bit put off by that, but I will see.
BULLDOZER!!!

Okay so i've just been doing some basic OC'ing with Overdrive and Furmark this is what i've reached:

Core - 975Mhz (+75)
Memory - 1200Mhz (+150)

However these are comfortable settings, the fan is only running at 32% and is perfectly quiet for gaming with headphones on. I get a feeling that with an increase fan speed the Core could be maxed out at 1000 easily.

I'll be doing some benchmarks with these clocks and stock in a little while, right after i go eat !
