    126 ATI Avivo™ HD is a technology platform that includes a broad set of capabilities offered by certain ATI Radeon™ HD GPUs. Not all products have all features and full enablement of some ATI Avivo™ HD capabilities may require complementary products.
    127 Some custom resolutions require user configuration.
    128 Playing HDCP content requires additional HDCP ready components, including but not limited to an HDCP ready monitor, Blu-ray or HD DVD disc drive, multimedia application and computer operating system.
    129 ATI PowerPlay™ technology consists of numerous power saving features. Not all features may be available in all ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series graphics cards.
    130 Subject to digital rights management limitations; maximum supported audio stream bandwidth is 6.144 Mbps.
    131 ATI Radeon™ HD graphics chips have numerous features integrated into the processor itself (e.g., HDCP, HDMI, etc.). Third parties manufacturing products based on, or incorporating ATI Radeon HD graphics chips, may choose to enable some or all of these features. If a particular feature is important to you, please inquire of the manufacturer if a particular product supports this feature. In addition, some features or technologies may require you to purchase additional components in order to make full use of them (e.g. a Blu-Ray or HD-DVD drive, HDCP-ready monitor, etc.)

    I love mine and it runs so cool with the Accelero XTREME 4870X2

    Can I be in your club?
    I run stock, nitrous is cheating!:)

    Thanks for adding me. I figured I'd be legal.

    I was a member until 2 days ago - i still have my 4870x2, but i just wanted lower idle heat output so got a 5970...

    Still props for the mega-awesome card which was the 4870x2!

    Add me in, i just got one 2days ago and plan on keeping it for along time. Been doing a few tests on it, and so far so good, but i need a format.

    Edit: Sorry im running at stock clocks with a stock cooler. This card runs ubber hot, glad i can manually increase the fan speed, 50% seems to cover all games, and 30% for idle. Ran Crysis at 1600*1200 all high settings 4xAA and still got over 30+FPS was awesome :)

    I had a powercolor one :)

    Was awful for trying to OC - even after replacing the thermal paste it had practically zero thermal headroom for overclocking, though other than crysis it could handle anything at max settings 4xaa 8xaf stock speeds (which i decided to keep it on) with no trouble :)

    thank you for adding me and taking the time to find my correct timings from some other screen shot I posted...I do indeed run them at 750/900 :toast: I hardly ever run them faster than 750/900 even when benching...sometimes but not normally.

    I guess I won't be coughing up money for a 5xxx series or Nvidia GF300 anytime soon, so I'll ask to join the club since my puppy will keep soldiering on!

    I'm using two profiles which I turn on/off through my keyboard. 1 for stock speeds but 37% fan speed to keep it cool when idle and another at 800/1000 with 51% fan speed for playing games or benchies at colder than idle temps. A little loud with that profile but I got good speakers/headphones to drown it out :)

    Gotta add me too.

    however not sure what clock speeds to post for it...

    Highest CORE clock: 822/945
    Highest MEM clock: 800/1000 (Could go higher but not gonna chance it)

    ^^^^ Same here Melvis. I waited until they were $379 USD before even considering one cause it was just too much. I happened to have just enough cash when they were below $400 so I figured its now or never. Absolutely love my XFX 4870x2.

    Also have one a Diamond one and I run it at 822/947, wish I had better than stock cooling, I can't bump the voltage at all or I would OC some more. But hopefully moving to a 5870 or 5970 this month.

    Yea thats not a bad price to pick one up for. There still over $500 AUS here :ohwell: and thats still to much for me, so i had to go second hand Ebay style lol for under $400, with a receipt and warranty still.

    Nice pic of ya rig :toast:
