    PCB most likely is reference, cooler is different. Your description (noisy) mislead me. :lol:

    Yes the lighting was coming in from sideways.
    The digital camera I bought is a Sony DSC-S950 and I did not read the reviews on it before purchasing. :eek:

    Almost all cameras have that issue, just make sure you add a light source when taking a picture inside the house.

    Add me too, my HD 6970 is running great. Though I may upgrade it when the HD 8900's come out.

    Yea, actually it's not that bad compared to the 5870 at 50% fan speed, at 100% it's almost unusable.

    The PC I have the 6850 in has an OCZ Vendetta CPU cooler with a very loud fan, so I think I'm just hearing that. Been meaning to rig a 120mm fan on the CPU cooler to tone it down.

    Well as it seems does the Catalyst 12.11 driver package miracles for the S. Islands cards, so that means that it may be about time for me tow continue my work on the setup of hour mass-mark. :)
    I will do so friday-ish, I think.

    I have a sapphire 7950 coming in tomorrow, I guess you can add me to the he-man nvidia-haters club.

    Any chance of flashing it to a 7970?¿

    nope 7950 cant be flashed to 7970 sadly. altho reference 7970s can be flashed to 7970 Ghz editions which offer good clocking since the gpu bios ups volts to 1.25 which allows most to push nearly 1200+ on the core. If i had a reference card its what i would do.

    Not much need to I guess, the 7950 maxes everything out there, especially with the new 12.11 drivers.

    OK, adjusted the OP. But didn't you have a 6670 as well?

    Nice that there is a difference in 3DMark. Normally there is not much of an increase with that prog AFAIK.

    Just received my 7950 and holy shit.

    First thing I did was Crysis 2 maxed, and it dispatched that with no problem.

    It was still at the stock clocks (850 i believe) but has the boost technology. This was also done with my pii 945 without the overclock, and without the optimized drivers (yet).

    Only two HD 5770 owners? Time to increase that to three.
