If you dont understand that, I will have to get MY epic paint skills out tongue.gif

Well yeah i was toying with that idea but i would need to find a magnet that was able to have 12volt go though it.

By the way i'm off to bed now so i wont reply till the morning.

OK turns out that its very hard to get my hands on a 5870, so i went for the 6870. And yes i know the the 5870 is better but i was fed up of waiting and for £150 inc shipping this was a good deal. Especially since this is the MSI Twin FrozR II OC edition. A whole 19 degrees cooler and 12dB quieter. The 6870 is suppose to replace the 5770 but this card is much much better than the 5770 and is almost as good as the 5870!

So guess what came in the post today I apologise in advanced for the bad picture quality. I was using my iPhone 3G.







Old card (Im' not sure why this is upside down? In Photobucket the photo is the right way up.)



Comparison in size



What a picture





With the 2 power cables plugged in.



Brilliant cable management



A great picture in my opinion.



A new sticker hehe.



This card is cooler on load (55 degrees max so far whilst playing COD4 or BFBC2) than my 5750 was on idle . This card is utterly silent, i can only hear the case fans! I may do a bit of overclocking in the near future as well, but i need to learn first!

I love it already!!

I really want my next mod to be sleeving but i cant afford it at the moment.

I will need to buy these things:


24 Pin PSU Red sleeved extension £9.79 With this 8 Pin PSU red sleeved extension - £6.99




Or this

24 Pin PSU Red and Black sleeved extension - £9.79 With this 8 Pin PSU red sleeved extension - £6.99


(I'm weighed towards these ones)(if i went for these i would have to buy black and red sleeving and heat shrink)

The reason for the PSU extensions is because if i take my PSU apart to sleeve the motherboard power cables then i will void the warranty.

1 meter of black heat shrink - £2.39

75cm of SATA heat shrink - £2.39

10 meters of small red sleeving - £7.05

5 Meters of SATA sleeving - £5.28

100 cable ties - £1.99

MDPC Shipping - £8.03

Total - £43.91

I need 1 new cold cathode because i managed to snap one of them .

And i also want 3 new really quite fans that i can use for the rear of the case, the top and the back of my H50 (pull).
