    :eek:

    Now the mystery is solved. A lot happens at your place I see. A Corsair unit taking out cards... I only thought that that happens with el cheapo units but I was wrong about that I see. Learned something today.

    About BarbaricSoul's card, that was a typo. Fixed it now.

    Although 2x 6950s are faster than a single 7970, it will be easier to sell later on for a future upgrade and is also considerbly more power efficent,good call there.

    long story short dont hook up lots of HDDs to corsairs units, they arent ment to handle many HDDs etc, they give like 12 sata plugs i only used 8 but it still overloaded the units 5v and 3.3v because it was never designed for that aka the extra plugs are for convience not to actually use lol eitherway overloaded it killed the unit killed 2 gpus and 3 hdds. If you look at Silverstones PSUs youll notice alot of times they have less Sata plugs than most other brands kinda makes sense now ;)

    currently running my 6870 @ 935 gpu and 1100 mem :D The 6870 IMO is just one of those cards that tends to hold against time a lil longer, much like the 5850/70. Im really happy with mine and only intend to replace it with a 7870 or a GTX660 Ti

    With the radeon 8k around the corner might want to wait a little longer,theire stats on paper and expected MSRP are really not bad.

    Mine.

    Powercolor 7970 LCS and an MSI 7970 OC with EKWB (plus backplate and single i/o bracket).
    Bought the Powercolor first (too wary to pull apart a £400 card when they first came out so paid extra for the pre-fitted block.) Bought the MSI one for £300 and decided to cool it myself. As it happens the MSI one runs 4-5 degrees cooler.

    Primary rig: XFX 5870 XXX edition... lately unstable at even 950 core, so downclocked to 925.

    Secondary rig: 6850 MSI (Don't know exact model, but it's red, black and kinda noisy :))

    Welcome guitarassdeamor, 54thvoid and Sasqui; you will be added to the list.

    I think that once the amount of new entrants per day lowers a bit, it will be time to discuss that in order to do any standardisations and comparisons that seem necessary. :)

    BTW, I think that Sasqui's 6850 is one in reference design.

    My camera has become worse over the years or I'm not using the right setting.

    Probably the lighting. Sideways directional lighting that is not that strong leads to stuff like that, esp. with mobile phone cams.

    This is what it looks like, is it a reference PCB?:
