Looking to buy HD6990 or two HD6950 OC

HD6990
Will my case be able to handle the HD6990 blowing half of its exhaust back into it?
Please note that my H50 radiator sits inside the case with push / pull config.

Regarding the HD6950 OC

Are the Asus ones unlockable?

So, HD6990 blows air back into the case?

I was thinking, would it be a good idea to create some piping/plastic tunnel solution and feed the exhaust (blowing into the case) back out through the rear of the case?




PS: I PSU should handle the card easily and noise isnt an issue (I run both 4890s at 50% minimum speed)

Do not buy the 6990 its to expensive, and yes that asus will unlock from what I can see but its too expensive. Buy from Newegg... I got my Gigabyte which unlocks perfectly from Micro-center for 300

both ati and nvidia need to drop these dual-gpu cards - IF we wanted more power we would just buy two cards in sli or xfire

nuff said - these cards always end up with problems

6990 is overpriced for what it is.

Seeing that you have a crosshair I'd suggest you get HD6970's and go crossfire and put that $50-60 bucks into something else like an Eyefinity set up.

Oh I should mention I'd only ever consider getting the HD6990 once the price drops.

I live in Aus and prefer to purchase my items here locally (pick up), in any case Newegg wont ship here.

I'm a tad iffy about getting two cards since my 4890s have an unstable CF (1 is faulty) so I don't want a repeat of that
