Asus 6970 DC II

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just got in my new 6970 DC II today and holy crap this card is huge and heavy. I haven't started messing with any settings yet but so far so good, getting it in my tiny case was a challenge but successful. If anyone else is planning on getting the same card make sure you have ample room available

Why is that bad boy so beefy? Is the cooler made of gold?

it should be the design is cool but i think asus was trying alittle too hard, it does stay cool. i'm starting small i have it O.C'd to 910mhz GPU 1420mhz Memory, fan on manual 60% and maintaining an avg. temp of 55 gong to try and do some tests tonight and maybe a game or two to see how the performance is and jut gonig to keep O.C.ing it til it becomes unstable. Gonna try and post some pics tomorrow also of the monster.
