    PRICE DROPPED: NOW $280 SHIPPED

    After a few requests to sell the shaman I have a new offer for you guys: For $230 shipped you get the card with no cooler or heatsinks installed, perfect for anyone who wants to watercool, card is reference design Rev 1.1

    I have a stock cooler on the way thanks to GSG-9, for the card and stock cooling I ask $270 shipped

    I hate to do this, but here I go,
    I really only play games like Minecraft and Fallout, the most demanding game I play being STALKER. My card sits idle 90% of the time and the other 10% when I do game my card never comes close to being under load. I'm looking to downgrade and re-coup some of the money I spent on this monster to fund my new interest in vinyl.

    This card has been great to me, it overclocks up to the limits in afterburner on stock voltage and never passes 70C with the Shaman. I bought it second hand and have no idea how much stress the card has on it and it will come without warranty(though I guarentee it to be working on arrival). While in my use its been well kept. No bitcoining, no hard gaming, no long stress testing(though I have tested my OC out pretty good with 30 mins furmark/heaven/crysis tests.)

    Interested in cards that are $130> + cash in trade, the 6850 I got didn't work out, quiet cooling is a big bonus.

    Do you mean cooler wise or PCB wise? It would be easy enough to find a stock cooler and with the rarity of the shaman it wouldn't be hard to sell alone. I'd consider selling them seperate if I trusted myself with removing the thing.
    The PCB is the latest revision from AMD. 1.2, not one of XFX's own designs. ;)

    I'm afraid not, I bought it with the shaman on it and didn't get the original cooler.
    I saw the stock cooler for $20-30 on ebay a week ago, I'm not sure if its still there.

    I have a 5870 watercooled that has been modified to take up a single slot and I can't find the screws for the stock air cooler. PM if interested.

    Also if we crosstraded with me giving you some money obviously, I could throw the Shaman on the 5870 for you cause I wouldn't use it.

    I'm sorry, putting a big cooler like the shaman on a single slot card really doesn't sound like a good idea. Thanks for the offer though.

    Yeah, I figured as much. The cooler is getting hard to find though, and I've gotten plenty of people asking about it, I don't really trust myself to remove it without damaging anything though.
