    Yeah, that's true. My 5770 could easily do a 150MHz OC, but these fat Cayman chips don't seem to do much unless you have an MSi Twin Frozr PE or some other beefier design. I wouldn't complain though, as it's probably on par with or better than your previous 560Ti. And, AMD cards typically don't end their lives in a fiery death like my 460 did (seems it's common with these EVGA ones from a quick Google search). :(

    They are about even from what I can tell. The 560TI broke 30K with 900Core while this one does it at 800 core.

    Card has a little more in her and I'm going to have to do quite a bit of tweaking to get over 4.4Ghz

    That may be true but I am not quite yet versed in what to tweak for 2600k stability yet.

    Human Proteome Folding - Phase 2, this project has a boat load of pending validations. What takes them so long? I was hoping to come home tonight with a Milestone but, no...'Pending Validation!'

    Once you get to a certain point your pendings will level off and you will start getting points. This is one part of the throttle up process.

    I have a SATA notebook HDD around here somewhere- SMART claims errors (bad sectors I think)... I'll send it to you if you feel like messing with it.

    I believe it's a Toshiba 5400rpm 250 or 320MB :eek:

    Note- It was running fine???

    Sorry- the Dark Knight is the original model- the DK Night Hawk stays w/me for awhile

    Yes it does support unlocking- I used it to unlock the 720BE that jstn7477 currently has

    Correct- I couldn't get the 960T to unlock but it can OC to 3.8 pretty easy (didn't push further)
    ** EDIT- didn't try it on this mobo though- may try later today ;) **
