    Yep. I had them both at +20% power and at 915 core, but I crashed every now and then. Backed them off to stock 6970 clocks and they've been all right since. Will do some more investigation later.

    Got my quick disconnects in today. Makes things much easier to take apart!

    Lookin' real good E :toast:


    I managed to scrap together a MicroATX test bench today out of a year 2000 HP Pavilion case. It can safely mount 2x 3.5" drives, a single 5.25" drive, and has a removable floor with padded feet. I would have much preferred a nice acrylic bench that can hold more securely, but this will do for now :)

    What's weird is, I got a 3c drop in temps on my CPU and a 4c drop on my NB after adding these. Their magic!

    *They should be for $60 f****** dollars!

    Joe, that is genius!! :toast:

    the quick disconnects? maybe they're working as a passive heatsink (active with your fans on em :p), and helping dissipate some of the heat.

    That could very well be, there is quite a bit of mass to them. They could also be restricting the flow just enough for the water to stay in the radiator a bit longer.. but really, they are surprisingly not very restrictive at all.

    Not even a drop. It's a little wet inside, but nothing comes out.

    Hmm, I still gotta test my flash with the 20% max. overload. Really necessary? 'Cause he seems quite stable in Black Ops as well as Mafia II running on HD6970's stock.

    Gheheheh :laugh:

    As far as the +20% and 915 core OC, no it's not necessary, but neither are two of these cards in the first place :roll:

    Great looking setups here. Looks like a couple people had to hop in and blow me out of the water (no pun intended since most were watercooled ;))
