AMD RADEON 6990 OWNER'S CLUB

radeon6990banner.jpg


I think it's about time to start a thread for the elite...the extravagant...the sheer overkill...or perhaps just for the "mine is bigger than yours" factor of the AMD Radeon 6990.

Just post a picture of your card/build/receipt/etc...some proof that you own the card. And as you benchmark/test post your results!

OCN Staff Note: The ownership of this thread was changed from to Levesque on 6/16/2011, due to inattentiveness by the thread's OP.

They can't know you moved the switch, if you move it with a paper-clip, without removing the yellow sticker.

So yes, you will be ''safe with the warranty''.

yeah i dont get the stickers either ? guess it gives the card some character .

Ill be trading in my 6970 for a 6990 once they have enough stock in aus .

and yes , im running eyefinity off my single 6970 and its awsome .. 6990 would be unreal , 60 fps eyefinty in every game .. DO WANT! single monitor would be a waste on this card .

quick question , 6970 shares its mini dp connection with one of the dvi and that causes screen tear on 1 of the screens in eyefinity .. 6990 will have dedicated ports ? hope so .

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?

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...

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.
