Wonder why no one has mentioned the HD6970 Direct CU II, which can do 1100+ on air..

It was mentioned, if read the source. Reading is good for you.

o.0 I hope my sarcasm meter is broken because that is just about pure stupidity. There's quite a few parts on the pcb that actually get much hotter than the gpu core that resides on it.

But i haven't seen anyone in the forum saying anything about the DirectCU II oc abilites.

If one was to get the BIOS of this GPU could they flash a 6950 with it??

The DirectCU II has MOSFET sinks out of the box.
I have mine at 960 MHz without any voltage added, and it stay at about 58C to 65C at full load 24C ambient . fan at 50% or less.
I really should see how far I can take it would get more points in Bonic.

I don't think that's a good idea considering they have much difference in power regulation.

I'd rather have the one that can be watercooled.

Do read any mention of parts at all?

No, you don't. None what so ever, pcb's don't create heat. Nobody said a word about parts did they, sig-less pal?
Your sarcasm meter will get you into trouble FAST around here.

Actually, no parts on the entire graphics card actually create heat since heat is energy and it can not be created (or destroyed). Energy is only transferred through the pcb and is released as heat. Your assessment is totally asinine considering that none of the parts emit heat from the transferred energy by its sole-self until they are used in conjunction with supporting, complimentary components that completes the circuit to present a current draw from the source of the transfer. To argue that the pcb doesn't emit heat due to the exclusion of the component infrastructure that make up the fuctional anatomy of the pcb is logically erroneous. It's as logically forthcoming from your original post as stating the gpu doesn't output heat because we aren't talking about a 100 percent, fully constructed graphics card.

Stupidity will get one in trouble much quicker.

You expect me to read that mess? lol, NO The [SPACEBAR] use it!
