Not been happy with that cause the replacements have been cards with the fans in the middle and they do not cool as easy. My temps for the cards run about 5-7 degrees hotter on the cards with fans in the middle. Other than that no complaints. LOL
i think i'll start to stay away from ATi XFX.
their nvidia cards were so great tho! why did switching to AMD make them loose quality?
well, i thank you nvidia /sarcasm. great decision RAGEKICKING XFX for making ATi cards. why didnt they ragekick:
ASUS, GIGABYTE, AND MSI?
nvidia can be such a dick sometimes.

thats because of the XFX sticker!
when you turn on the card, some of the adhesive melts causing the fan to erode and finally die.
its SCIENCE PEOPLE!!!

Oh, and they WERE giving out 5830's for a while for RMA'd 4890's. Then they bought back all of their 4890's that weren't selling at retailers. This is why you won't find a brand new XFX 4890 for sale anywhere other than forums and fleabay.
so now they are tryng to get rid of all their bad batch cards as RMAs? UNACCEPTABLE! they will NOT skrew me over this time!
i swear to god, if XFX sends me another 'NEW' HD4890 bad batch imma go to california and SHOVE THEIR CRAP DOWN THEIR THROAT!!! or rage in customer support and troll.
they messed with the wrong person. they will NOT take advantage of me!
