    well i hope i can get a new one from SeaSonic or buy one and i hope it could be from their EU site but i canT find it there :(


    well i need to find something to hide them better but this here is the way i can do it atm. it's better than bush of cables in the cable and blocking the airflow.

    Nice card...I have a Sapphire 6970 2GB I bought used a little over a year ago and that runs great. I really like the duel fans on yours, Sapphire does a good job with their cooling solutions. Only problem I have with mine is because it's a reference card, even though it has very good temps at idle and load, the fan is so loud. Anything above 40% fan speed it sounds like a leaf blower..:eek:

    Hope yours stays quiet and cool...good luck with the new card.

    Ha!


    My wife was all like:


    "oh, pretty, can I haz it? :eek:"


    I think I winked at her.

    She went upstairs, came back downstairs, it was in peices, and I'm taking pictures....


    Wife:


    "Shit. Guess not. :mad:"



    :roll:


    And yeah, it arrived at my door last night @ like 7:30 pm by courier, and by 10:30, when we had finished BF3'ing, I got right to work!


    I do this with all review samples....get it, take it apart, take my pics, then re-assemble and test to make sure it stil lworks, then put it in "queue" on my shelf. :p

    And yes, part way through this photo shoot I realised I hadn't peeled the plastic off the chipset heatsink lol..

    EDIT : Hey, in the second to last pic, does anyone know what that connector is for on the side of the H100 cooling block?

    I dismantled a dell inspiron 15" the other day to do a clean & repair on it,[overheating] quite a tricky process, for someone who isnt tech minded it would be a nightmare, very easy to miss the tiny fliphead screws under the dvd slot and behind the battery. more complicated than just taking the bottom cover off [had to get into it thru the top/keyboard etc], got it going tho lol.

    Took the mobo out and redid the thermal paste on both chips and cleaned fan too.

    It did wonders for it actually. Saved a mate 2 years of revit work and all his architecture study info.

    I love to know how things are engineered, i cant help it, whenever i get new tech toys, the first thing i do is dismantle to see how its made/works.
