AMD Radeon 6990 Club - Page 2

post #11 of 4103
Thread Starter 
Finally! The ''best'' Club is now open! smile.gif

XFX 6990 + XFX 6970 in Tri-Fire, using 11.4 preview drivers. Rock-stable, not noisy, not too warm (since I'm exiting hot air from ther front of my case). Can i join the Club?

5536222238_9e47ac2a4f_b.jpg

So for all the green drama-queens out there. Look! A magic trick! I moved the BIOS switch and the sticker is still there! No one will ever know! smile.gif Sigh... You peel it off a little bit , move the little switch, then put it back in place.

Thousands of threads and posts all over the net for this? LOL. I LOVE how the internet can make a tempest in a glass of water for so small a thing...

5535645441_a315f273a3_b.jpg

Just waiting for my 6990 waterblock now. EK nickel/plexi already on my 6970.

And no my card is not noisy, not more then my 5970, and it's not getting hot at all, never going over 82 celsius after 2 hours of Dragon Age and 2 hours of Stalker COP. Good case, good ventilation, and air getting out by the front of the case = Win.

All the drama for this... I'm honest here. The sound is really ok to me, compared to my 5970, of the 580 SLI set-up I had. Not better, not worst. Overblowned issue again . And my temps are not high like all those reviewers.... Good case = good ventilation = ok temp. The Nvidia 480 was alot worst lol!

I'm running at the 6990 at 975/1400 with stock voltage for now btw... smile.gif Waiting for Ek waterblock...

And I forgot to say that we can move ''the switch'' with a harpin without moving the sticker at all. There is enough space to do it.

So I want the copyright on the DIY ''6990-hairpin-yellow-sticker-warranty-trick'' people will all be talking about soon on the internet.

Just for your info, Powercolor and XFX have updated their Warranty status for HD6990, and they will still serve you Warranty if you move the switch.

It's a matter of time until Sapphire and Asus joins them and allows the switch to remain with a Warranty.

But yeah, if you've got an XFX or a Powercolor, nothing to worry about, Warranty wont be eliminated, it's only Sapphire and Asus who still remain strict about that, but I think it's a matter of days until they change their minds and join XFX & Powercolor with that decission.
