    snow's still about 4 inches thick here and there's more snow forecast for the weekend.

    This post is really just an excuse to post this awesome sat pic of the UK taken on the 7/1/10 :

    Nope - i'm loving the snow too :D

    Best snow in my lifetime by far (22 years), i hope we get more tbh (as long as it doesn't delay my nexus one delivery as it did my 5970 :shadedshu )

    hehe yeah - i got mine from overclockers.co.uk - i paid for a xfx 5970 standard edition but because of the delays in them getting in stock they gave me a xfx5970 black edition instead :D

    I live in the countryside so there are no gritters out here, been trapped at home since the snow hit, oh well :p

    Card's pretty good (tons better than my 4870x2) - word of warning though the overvolt tool doesn't save settings so if you shutdown/statup again and left the card overclocked in the CCC then you get system lockups as soon as the CCC starts to load as even if it's in 2D mode it crashes the drivers if running on stock voltage and 3d clocks set too high (i don't now why - xfx know of the issue and wont fix it anytime soon :( )

    I'm currently trying to use msi afterburner but that doesn't have the ram voltage controls :shadedshu

    seems to me to be some fail from ATI driver Dev. Similar stuff happened to the 4800 series on release as well.

    shouldn't really need to overclock the card anyway :p

    have fun with your 5970 buddy ;)

    Im under a lot of stress....last monday - I took 1 of my 4870s back to the shop for RMA. after a bit of a chat with them & joking around that I hope sapphire send me a 5870 back - the guy bought it up that they could just send me back a 5770 if they cant find any 4870s :(

    I should get the card back by the end of next week some time (at least thats what the guy in the shop said) but im still worried....

    I may have to sell my remaining 4870 for a 5770 for crossfire.... or just sell them both & get a 5850 :p

    Or sell the 5770 and buy a used 4870 for a lot less, thus making a profit :D

    blah, I hate buying pre-used hardware. but we shall see.

    a 5770 is less powerful cuz of the 128bit memory interface right??
  25. InTeL-iNsIdE Guest

    LOL check the new 3d06 bench thread, I have just hit 28k with 2 x 5770's :toast:

    The mem oc's like a dream making up for the 128bit bus ;)
