    Do get. :D

    An impressive change was also the noise. Much more silent since I had 6 15KRPM HDDs. lol

    I don't think the noise will change for me because i'm already running an SSD, and my HDDs are barley audible anyway. Just thought it was time to upgrade my old Kingston V+100 128gb to a 840 pro, you know, take advantage of the unused SATA 3 on my mobo :p

    If you have a decent price on it, the WCG guys would be interested in it for sure.

    Curious kitty is curious :D

    Corsair ftw. Enough said.:)

    New fans for my H100i, somehow it fails to control the Skythe S-Flex so they are always running at full speed. So I bought these for push and placing the stock H100i fans as pull.

    Looks to be the same PCB but with solder masking over certain areas(I'm assuming the bottom card is the new one)
    As far as I can tell, they have the same layout and components, jsut one has solder covered pads and the other has masking over those pads.

    Yep, and PCB is physically thicker a bit, VRM doesn't have any coil whine, even @ 1.3 V, and some surface-mounted bit are slightly revised.

    slightly better ASIC quality compared to my other card(which does 1300 MHz pretty easily), and slightly lower clocking ability.

    At least it's stable.


    Also decided to use a second Crossfire bridge, and that seems to fix some of the flicker I was getting in 3DMark...or it was the fresh driver install I did. Either way, quite happy now, since I can now get the review done on my last Z77 board, the ASRock Z77 Extreme11!!!!

    I saw somw flicker before with a poorly seated crossfire bridge. Maybe that was it, and the second one helped...
