soo.. Diamond sent me a 5870 reference board - Page 3

post #21 of 30
It doesn't actually say reference, It just says Diamond 5870 which is what you got. Diamond prolly make a fair few different coolers for the 5870 and use the same picture to market them all.

You still try and send it back as though it was not the card that advertised for sale.

Unfortunately all images used do not indicate the actual product and it doesnt say reference on the ad so theres nothing you can do but return it and order somewhere else

^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This guy gets it right imo.

Also that red board could not be any further from a ref board,its deffo non-ref.

Non ref is not always bad thing though,but that is one fugly card

If it was me i would return it on the basis that it is clearly not what you ordered,you ordered"5870PE51G" which this doesnt appear to be.. at all

Man that is one monster looking card lol!!

Although, it just seems to be a mix up, like others said, just call Amazon and get it returned.
I wouldn't say you've been "lied" to, mistakes happen every once in a while.

Yep, he ordered a reference card pictured in the ad, and Diamond sent Amazon non-reference, different cooler cards to replace their order for the "good" cards Amazon ordered. So it's Diamonds fault for sending out inferior products when stock is low. It isn't just this one time, because it happened to me 6 months ago when I bought these 5770s. Same exact thing. That's why I ended up with a Sapphire too.
