560 SOC driver quits at 90-91C - Page 2

post #11 of 16

Uh, so, now it says "refund" by "Approved." Guess I need to look for a new card. Or wait for the SOC to restock (if that's a good idea after this whole dilemma!).

Blaaaaah. Suggestions?

Get another 560, different brand. Sure the SOC has certain things you'd like to see but, get something else. The performance difference isn't going to matter that much with you having SB behind it.

I agree. Take your refund money and go pick up an MSI Twin Frozr II. You won't be seeing 90C like you did on your SOC... ever.

Well, I mean, I only reached 90C in Furmark. In regular games I only ever hit sub-60C, so heat, I don't think, was the issue.

And I wonder if the Twin Frozr II is worth its cost compared to a 6950 2GB. I can see why the SOC would be, since it performs at about a ~570 level, but from what I can tell, other 560s are not nearly as powerful.

I'm *also* considering just getting a 4850 1GB for now, and then selling that for $20 after, I don't know, the Radeon 7000s come out or something. Of course, then I worry that XFX won't honor the rebate, in which case the $45~ price becomes $77~, and that doesn't seem like quite as good a deal.

Or maybe I should just get a 6870. They're ~$200, and fairly comparable to a 470, which regular 560s are supposed to be around, right?

You know, I should just sleep on this. Too much anxiety at the moment.

Although you think the 6870 is comparable to a 470, when overclocked and or juiced up heavily, the 470 blows the 6870 out of the water.

You're better off with a 6950/70 if you're thinking about an AMD route instead of Nvidia.

But if I spent the money necessary to get a 6950 I might as well get a SOC--arghhhhhhhh
