    silent majority thnx

    This sad news about W1zzard has generated quite a stir throughout the intertubes and I just wanted to add my 2c.
    I've been a fan of TPU and W1zzard's work for years, but I haven't participated nor have I taken the time to thank you W1zzard and those at TPU. So Thanks to you.
    Like others have mentioned, I wish the best for you and really hope you take a long break and reconsider leaving.
    At the risk of sounding too technical or using obscure terminology, I would quantify the number of persons that never post, never troll, and haven't said thanks, as A LOT. You command a great deal of respect from the silent majority (which you have earned).
    ThnX

    heres one point to ponder: people clamored w1zz to update his results from cat 9.12 to 10.3, and when he did - no one (at least until the point i left the thread) questioned his results. everyone trusted his results completely.

    I dont see the big point anyways ... if its clearly stated he used an earlier diver ... deal with
    just be happy you have as content rich of a review as you have ... if you dont like it go get a fermi put in the 40+ hours im sure w1z does reviewing each card and give us your results in a top notch setting not just a half ass ignorant review ... iiiiiiiiiiif you wont do that then you need to learn you place mr keyboard warrior

    exactly. people asked for w1zz to test with the new drivers - because they wanted to see HIS results with them.

    The rest was just thread crapping by fanbois

    I think w1zz has th best fermi review so far... here is why, there are folks that would recommend brain fart if it would come from nvidia (guru3d), then there is all those major suckage reviews that first don't disassemble the card, and this is crazy, dont test temperatures, tweaktown, gives 80%plus to everything and their temp probe is useless, because heat exhaust, is not proportional to GPU heat. Then there is bit-tech, i love them almost as much as w1zz and they always buttrape everything, like if they dont like something, they freaking tell us so, but it sometimes seems to harsh. so between the 4 from bit-tech and 10 from morons. 8ish is perfect and what i would give, because first the performance is there, but the temps and power draw makes it a 8, period

    Now i was looking for some pic like frodo screaming gandalf noooz!!! as gandalft (the wizard, actually the grey, but yall get the point) disappeared in the dark, but google failed on me

    vvvvvv- WIN!!!! -vvvvvvv

    Soooo Whats going on again? I didnt read nothing with the review but I completed agreed with the conclusion and most of what I scanned over...when compared to other review sites.

    But ah, leave the haters behind and go where your family, friends, and MONEY take you lol.

    If this site ends up in the hands of idiots, o well. I always have guru3d.
