I hope people start listening to me now about how XFX isn't as good as people think.
So with everything looking good, the video card arrives (probably after a month due to stock issues) and you throw it in your system and figure since you've just thrown together a nice X58 testbed with 6GB of memory, it's time to install Windows 7 64-bit and get into some serious gaming action over the holidays. So with everything installed, drivers done, thrown on some games, ran a 3DMark to make sure everything's where it should be and you say "Okay, I don't need any more power, but let's fire up the Special XFX Overvolt tool anyway and overclock this sucka..."
Opening up the XFX Overvolt program you find yourself denied! Hmm, this is weird you think, so you get in contact with XFX and the conversation goes a little like this: (note that his conversation involves Australian dollars and hasn't been edited) ...
