Edit; edit post next time instead of double posting.


I'm fairly sure most 5970s are reference, and that one sure is.

Edit; well, never mind, then. But if you're going to spend extra, get the nickel-plated version there as it's not subject to oxidation like plain copper is.

Like this one a bit better then the heatkiller as it cools the vrms a bit better.
I would have suggested that if his budget wasn't $130. :/

Im not sure but i think all the ati card can suffer from coldbug.
Coldbug happends when you install an aftermarket gpu cooler onto the gpu. But it will work if you install the stock cooler again onto it.
(if youre unlucky)

1+ rep please
