Dang, thats a lot of rad...
Got all of the rads a while back. Did crazy good as a single GPU/CPU look idle and load temps were pretty similar. I spent the extra money back in the day so the main parts of the loop would never need upgrading. Even with a multi CPU/GPU setup I will never need more radiator surface area.
Looking for a 2nd 480 if anyone knows where to find one. Can't get any more up here now. If not, I've got a brand new 480 for sale. Unless I can find a 670/680 for half off on black friday....
Mine is up for sale in the For sale section.
I saw that, but water cooling is beyond my budget. I could of got this 2nd 480 on sale for $179can brand new, but all sold out now. So now I'm on a saving/selling spree for the next month or so until I can get a 680, the only way I can get 2x 480 performance now. I guess 2 months of not eating is worth it.... Going to try to keep the 480 for my folding box, lots of ppd! For now I'll install the latest beta driver and see what this 480 can do!
Have you checked ebay? I saw a couple clicking through ebay.ca
On eBay stuff sells for way to high, I sold a 5870 for like $270 on eBay a little while back... There are a few 480's for sale over at OCN.
There are a handful of buy it now's for ~$200 ca.
Ebay's not really convenient, takes 9 days for me to send funds to paypal for one. I also notice most of those cards are from the us, will go through customs, and have upto $60 shipping. I think I'll wait for the the 6pm black friday sales to start at ncix, and see if I can snag a 670 for dirt cheap. If not, then I guess I'm back to hunting down a 2nd 480!
hey, i have got three gtx 470s and sold one 2-3 weeks ago, so i'm currently on zotac amp + zotac referance with gelid icy vision.
Im not really how far these cards can go but this is all i have managed to get so far.
Those cards will go a lot further. If you are looking for a good cooler for it I have a V3000F up for sale
Ah, new members, will add.
Getting bummed out, seems I'm in the minority with a single card! Really wish I could find a 2nd 480....
Can you update mine to 3 cards as well.
10 mins to black friday... also, ncix finally notified me and said if I had just ordered the last 480 on sale, they would of held it for me. Nice hindsight!
Heheh, yep, figures, 6pm sale starts, and ncix.com goes down.....
Small update from me...
Seriously miffed, ncix's idea of black friday prices is 350 for a 670. That's almost 400 delivered. I live on 475 total a month after rent. Grrrrr.....
Darn, stellar vram performance, but can't believe only half the texture fillrate of a 660ti:
My current gaming stable settings. I might be able to up the vram speed more, haven't tried.
Hmm, might just keep my 480/260 combo for a bit:
Aye i have both a 680 with a strong oc of 1219Mhz sustained and a 962Mhz 480 and at 1080p most games cannot tell the difference.
Necro! Finally adding a 2nd 480, (yes it took me this friggin long to get one) hoping it will match a 680 in performance. Must be some out there like me who are poor, and starting to sli these things because they are cheap! Anyone else out there brave enough to run 2 of these things? I'm waiting to see smoke come out of my 850w Silverstone.... I'll post benchies when I get it.
Till be right about 680 performance, but consume about 400w more at the same time, and run way hotter, and louder.
Oh, I'm painfully aware of that. But for an investment of under 300can, guess I'll make do....
