I wan't to get dust filters for mine but I'm to lazy to take the fans back out to put them in. the front one for me is a pain because I have to take stuff out to get to it. So for now I just spray it out once or twice a week with the air.
They're ugly as sin but they're still the best. Here's a tutorial I used to color mine. It's really effective. Best of luck.

yeah I agree noctua must lose lots of sales due to the ugly colours.

should have used Halfords Flexible Vinyl Paint it actually sinks into the plastic
so even if you scratch so you can't scratch it off

not cheap tho and limited colors

I don't think there is anyone monitoring this thread (the thread starter hasn't updated the first page since march) so I don't think you guys have to post your cards.

From his sig rig, he doesn't even own a Radeon HD 6850 or 6870 any more, seems he's switch back over to Nvidia.

Hi everyone! I had a question for everyone. I have one XFX 6870 and I was interested in creating a CF set up on my PC. All my info is on my sig but I wanted to know if it was worth buying another 6870 or should I just get 6970? I dont know much so I want to know if its worth it or not. I do a lot of Photoshop, watch movies, and I play simple games like civilization V.

I plan on buying two monitors and creating an Eyefinity set up in the next 3 months. Does anyone have any suggestions on monitors?

If all you play is simple games then it wouldn't be worth the money. One 6870 can play about anything out there very well.

If I was to play Call of Duty 4 on a single 6870 would it look ok or would two be better? I use to play tons of games but with a wife and kids play time was reduced. I wanted to get my system ready and start playing again later on. So thats why I wanted to get an idea and start saving up to upgrade my system.

A single 6950/70 might be a better choice for 3 monitor setup. You can go crossfire later and 6970 crossfire is still very powerful.

I would get an MSI 6950 TwinFrozr III thou it's outta stock on newegg. TwinFrozr II is also enough. You can easily OC it on default voltage to 6970 speed. No need to flash it to unlock shaders. 6970 is practically the last step in AMD's gfx architecture. You can't even overclock it because it's already stretched, I saw over 1ghz overclocks and games only gain 3 fps
