Hi all, just needed to share this with ya and recommend a fantastic product, not just because it is Palit of course! I bought a pair of these babies to crossfire having sold my lovely (and very quick) Gainward (subsiduary of Palit.....yes there is a trend here ) GTX260, anyways, they arrived today, highlights of the cards are: 1GB GDDR3 clocked at 1000mhz 685mhz Core clock 3 phase power design 8 pin PCI-E (comes with adaptor) Non reference design and smaller than regular HD4850 Excellent aftermarker mini Accelero S1 type cooler.....thwe fan is angled as such that it blows all the hot air out of the back of the case. Well, firstly, the downside, I was VERY dissapointed that these babies dont come with a crossfire bridge......WTF! So all I could do for now is pop one of the little monsters in......please bare with me on this "mini" excitement journey, I have not owned an ATI card since my lovely old 1800XT days, actually thats not quite true, I did buy a HD3870 the day they were release in the UK but I never even opened the box as the following day the 8800GT was released and went for that instead. Anyways, to cut a long story short, I popped the little beast in the slot, installed CCC and Cat 8.11 drivers and as you do, set about some mild overclocking, well no mods, not even any tweaks (apart from using Rivatuner) and got her straight to 800mhz on the core stable!! have not tried anymore yet as I got a bit scared at that point! I will push some more during the week and then pop the other card in to see what that one can do so i can guage what settings for the crossfire rig.....hmmmmm crossfired HD4850's at 800+, now that hopefully will be nice.....all for the price of a high end GTX260 What really amazed me was this coolers performance, at 75% she is just audible....please check the temps in the screenie! I could run this card flat out at about 40% i reckon, anything upto 60% is inaudible.
