Antho Out of curiousity Clinic are you using the Hotfix 8.6 CAT's?

If not, then could it be ATi's Powerplay downclocking the cards as the temps are getting too high.

Congrat's on the cards though.... and good luck with the benching.

Replace the stock coolers with the Thermalright HR-03GT's and put a 92mm fan on them...they work superbly. One review showed how the idle temps dropped from 80c to 40c

I agree, I'm benchmarking ********. My 1.2ghz overclock got me almost an 8k score increase. I'm pretty happy with that. Considering the cards aren't overclocked.

Works for me.

Is he really that nice? A real NICE FedEx guy is when he delivers you Nehalm to your house when you haven't even ordered it.
