any thoughts on xfx stuff?

I could have told you they were sold out at newegg. They seem to sell out a lot.

xfx has great cards. I have owned 4 xfx cards and havent had any problems with any of them. Great quality I think. They have a great warranty too. I think xfx has just as good of cards as asus and i think theyre better than msi. Personally I have used two msi cards and i thought they would be good with all the quality components but i had problems with them every time i used them. Maybe its just me, i dont know. XFX has never let me down though. I personally recommend xfx myself and can say through my extensive experience with xfx that they have good quality cards.

Anand tech has a huge review on that xfx 7970 BE that your talking about with the dual dissapation. Its overclocked to 1000Mhz out the box and has room for more. Check out the review, it will tell you everything you need to know about the card. Amazing results and stays very cool. Its the only semi-custom 7970 thats out right now. If thats the only one you can find then yeah I would go with that. There is nothing different from the referance besides the dual fans and the overclock and i think vapor chamber. Another thing is that they are better binned. Also, it is the most bad azz looking card out of all the 7970's right now. Check it out. It does come with the extra $50 on top of retail but for the design xfx has made and the better binned pcb, i think its worth it. It would make any case look great.

I garauntee if you go with the XFX Radeon HD 7970 BEDD that you will not be disappointed with its performance. Check out the review and see for yourself. They did a very extensive review on that card.

Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.

So tweeky how is the 8150 working out? I know you had mixed feelings about it considering you had the 1100t. I have been thinking about getting another 8150/20 and wonder now with the bios updates and windows patch if you still miss your 1100T?

Be my guest though. Pay the same amount for a card that is no where near as good as that one. If you have to go with nvidia then why not wait a couple months at the most and get a way better card. The 500 series has been out for a good while now. Once 600 series comes out youll want to upgrade again.
I just think its a dumb idea to get last years cards when this years cards are just around the corner.
Also, Radeon have a completely new amazing architecture compared to last gen. Maybe you should do some research on it before you just exclude them without even thinking about it. Cause the GCN architecture is freaking awesome compared to the 6000 series.
I recommend you do the research cause it seems that you havent.

i have 3 machines running amd gpu,s 1 is an CHV with a 8150 running 2 6990,s in quadfire 1 is a sabertooth with a 1100t and 2 6870,s in crossfire and 1 is a CHIVE with a 1100t and it has 6870,s in crossfire and thay are awsone and my 4,th machine is a sabertooth with a 8150 with 2 nvidia gtx 450,s in sli and a 520 for phys ex and its so bad im thinking about swapping its cpu out with my outher sabertooth machine out of 3 brand new machines and 1 less thgan a year ole the nvidia machine ius by far the worst one of all and the only thine i had doa problems with was my CHV it took the third one to get a good one

Anyway, going to install now. I will keep you guys up to date on any changes that may occur. I'll let you know how it goes.

its not unusual for me to get my UPS delivery as late as 8:

The 8150 is slower than the 1090T in every day activity and the 8150 runs hot with air cooling

I have my 8150 at 4375 MHz this is as high my air cooler can take it

I have thought about a water loop but a good one is $500
The new CH6F with the 1090FX chip set will be coming soon and the curse of Pile-driver with 10% to 12% more

This way it will be only 17% slower than my 1090T and it may run hotter than my air cooler can stand

The updates only helped a little

 

PS My wife told me to go Intel she said its all my fault that diner is late again

I clocked my 8120 to 5.0Ghz and the temps stay below 55C with my H80 i got for less than $100. Once Bulldozer reaches 4.6Ghz it begins to outperform the x6. All bulldozer chips should come with a closed water loop to cool them cause they do get hot.

Also, do you have any proof on the CH6 1090fx you are talking about?
