same here - i was gonna buy his XFX one off him (the first one he put up for sale) luckily though i didnt have the money for it at that time, and by the time i did get the money it had already been sold else where im guessing - as he didnt really leave an explination for closing his FS thread. his 5850 twin frozor II looks good though, and i think its brand new from OCuK. I dont think hes even had that for 1 month. (but i could be wrong)
He seemed pretty confused about what he wanted to do with his PC - one moment he wanted to move onto a new GPU then the next thing i hear is hes thinking about getting another 5850. so i asked him why is he selling a 5850 (the XFX one) when he could pair them up with the other 5850 (the twin frozor II ??) he was asking for in his WTB thread for even more performance.
I never got an answer off him anyway. but its not so suspicious that he wanted to sell his XFX
It probably had no voltage tweak feature and he wanted a version that DID have voltage tweaking but that would be a bit of a no brainer unless he has really really bad case of OCD or is just a super perfectionist and anal about his hardware, in which case - why buy the XFX in the first place? unless that was a mistake?? and whats the point of upgrading more or less to the same card but just for an extra 200-250mhz on the clock when there are cards like the 6870/6950 out there on the market???
It just doesnt make sense. and judging by what happend to moonpig it could be that the XFX was also dodgy.
this is pure speculation of course. as Mr.Watercoold isnt here to explain/defend his actions
