You better try to re-seat it yourself, you'll get amazed how much tim they waste. Do a nice clean, apply a new, good quality thermal grase (a small rice grain) and I'll also reccomend you to remove the cooler's shield protection (as I did) since you're having a cf (in case you mounted the Hawk as gpu1) for better airflow.
Just do this couple of things and let me know about your temps (and fan noise) afterwards. cool.gif

The weather in Australia (Tasmania specifically) is rather absurd, one day it's boiling hot and it makes my computer overheat... The next it's raining!
It's crazy, and yeah i suppose so. Apparently if they can tell that I've removed it they won't RMA it if anything happens.. Sigh
I'll need to get some thermal paste in that scenario so i'll probably do both at the same time, and i might as well do my CPU while i'm at it!

The 6870 is on top, seeing as the power supply is so close to the bottom card, the 6850 is more designed for the bottom seeing as the heat-sync is a more passive style. (If you get what i mean). I was considering water-cooling to be entirely honest, but it's too costly. Might have a look at removing the shroud.. I love the look of it though.. rolleyes.gif

As a reference will these be similar to disassemble as a 9800GT? I got a dead one for $10 once.. It worked by the time i was done wink.gif
I might practice on the 6870 first, seeing as it has the worst problems..

I did for a bit, but using the drivers in the thread specified helped ALOT! I never got screen tearing at all either! wink.gif

Yeah i did actually, raised my minimum FPS a little. (Not much that i noticed without a FPS counter though)

I used this one, as it was easiest to install and it claimed it was better! wink.gif

But go for it! The worst you have to do is "Repair" your game i guess.

Here are my Sapphires:

450

The weird (and awesome) thing is that I get no micro-stutter. Also, no bottlnecking and no frame spiking, when all I have is a humble Phenom ii x4 955 BE @ 3.7 GHz.

Using 11.12 drivers. Skyrim has mediocre scaling but that doesn't bother me because even with one card I get like 60 FPS maxed out (1440 x 900)

You have the exact same models as I do in crossfire, I also notice no microstutter on them.
Can you please take a top picture from both cards and send it to me? I wanna compare a thing.

Just finished sticking 2X Antec 620s on my 2X 6850s.
img0308zp.jpgimg0311gv.jpg

Time to let the overclocking and over volting begin,
at stock clocks,
Both cards are idling 27C,
Max load is 47C and 48C on the old card.
VRMs hitting 51C and 53C on the old card.
Memory (at least thats what I think that temp is for) both at 25C.
