    Yes, though 3dMark06 is a pretty bad indicator of performance. The SM 2 tests (we are on SM 5 now) get no increase from crossfire. Stock with Vantage I almost got p18000. Honestly I didn't get these cards for benchmarking, I'm kinda done with that. I got these for gaming. :toast:

    awww dude, i could bitchslap you so hard and steal those cards:slap:
    waiting on 2 5770s for CF, but because there is no 58xx series then people is buying 2 or more 5770s, so they're running out of them too:confused: come on ATI, give us ze cardz:pimp:

    No idea, though I do need to redo my o/s and you are using a Core i5 which is clocked way higher. Also, you have PhysX. Turn off PhysX and run your 280's, see what you get. I really don't care about inflated numbers due to some proprietary features that hold no basis for real world performance.

    This is with an i7 system with the cpu at 3.8ghz. The cards are running stock. Looks like things are working allright.

    Not to create an argument but the point is moot towards physX and "real world performance". Its 3dmark, and dosent base off of "real world performance" :roll:

    But to go around that, i got 23k in 06 and you get 22k.

    well here's some updated pics of the old girl :laugh:
    well sick of seeing this
    [​IMG]
    i decided to use the fancy case someone at internet ready pcs had thrown out
    (yes i did ask for it, saddly though it had the side of the case missing :cry:)
    but although it was outside, (i don't think it got wet just had leaves in it)the speed controller still works and has a fancy three coloured display so i put the two cases side by side, (wires in between cases below)
    [​IMG]

    so why didn't i just swap cases ?well besides the fact it only has one side cover it has a bizaare upside down (or left handed mother board placement)which i personaly don't like
    as mussels reminded me one day heat rises :rolleyes: so my graphics card would get to hot
    anyway there is now more room to put extra hard drives in and cool, i might get a usb sata and pata unit to fix in it not sure:D any suggestions welcome
    anyways heres a pic of the two side by side

    If the mobo was upside down it would be better for thermal dissipation, as you say heat rises, upside down no heat goes into the PCB eh.

    hm true but then all the heat from the processor would go in the graphics card which doesn't vent out the back,
    still it's got a nice display, so as i said i'm hoping to get a usb harddrive thingymebob :D and then i wont have to have the side of the proper case off, and this aerocool one can go in the floor as i don't think this tables upto the job:eek:

    thanks mrcl:p i just noticed the crt had a bit of black tape stuck to it with a booger on it:wtf: euch who did that i wonder:shadedshu:laugh:

    Do you think you have enough icons? Windows came up with these crazy things called folders about 15 years ago, maybe you should try them :D :laugh:

    yes i know what your saying but that would add loads more noise to the system(i know cause i bought 2 expensive one's ages ago
    anyway this new case only has 1 side to it so saddly it's out the question for a new build it'll do for a caddy for now ;) strangely i looked around and for it's price (about £40) this case has some nice parts for it, saddly it can't be used on vista for some unknown reason (that's from manufacturers website aswell) shame ey

    Like I said these cards are on Shader Model 5 now. During SM 2.0 tests, CrossFire doesn't seem to be working at all :ohwell: And my O/S is very abused lol.

    then take action, now!!!!! Couple of cans of compressed air and you're good to go. You can leave the herb aside for one day and you can clean your rig :D
