So overall we feel that the R6970 Lightning edition is a bloody nice product if you can pick it up for the right price, all variables are simply are right, making this a unique, all custom product built guru style. Please do try and tweak a little with MSI's AfterBurner, that software is hot stuff. Voltage wise I'd not exceed 1.3V if you stick to air cooling, really ... that's plenty and it will get you towards the 1 GHz barrier, which is a psychological threshold we all like to pass I guess

Other than that, the noise levels are downright silent, power consumption is very decent and your gaming experience will run up-to 1920x1200 extremely well and all that with the very best image quality settings. Pretty much any game to date will have no issue whatsoever. As such, the product comes very much recommended, definitely a top pick, if priced right of course...

Oops .....

So why not just add that Guru3D review to the thread you had created as a post instead of having multiple review threads about the same card

There are other reviews by...

KitGuru
OCAU
Xtremesystems.org
Tbreak Technology

Its ok, no worries. Well mods do that not me . I just like to compare oc results so that i have a % of oc ability of these cards.
But its irritating to bump an old thread about 6970 review so that a person can see these particular cards. Also if u want to comment ull have to go through 100s of pages so its better to leave them on separate thread. Or as u said merge all "lightning 6970s" in 1 thread will be best...
