    Do we really need the thought police here too ? This is supposed to be a 'for fun' thread lol... If we had let it drag on, or if this was a tech/troubleshooting thread and someone complained, then I may see why you felt you had to say something. At least you were being polite about it...

    GTX 285 nudes ! .. Well almost lol ! Pardon my.. :D AS5 !! :p My GPU and or HSF needs to be lapped or shimmed. Its amazing temps stayed as low as they did, after the first pasting, b/c only about 25% of the GPU was making contact with the HSF. 90% of that was around the perimeter :eek...

    High end GPU tip and poll.

    This tip and poll is for people with graphics cards that are using 2 pci-e power connectors. Whether its new and DOA, unstable, bricked or running just fine, I want to hear from you. :) Before you try, take note of how warm/hot your power supply is when at idle and under load. Tip...

    Already there lolz .. Hard to believe I've had it 3 months already ! :cool: And with all the card swapping of late, I've unlocked it dozens of times b/c I reset the bios too. :rolleyes: haha Peace :rockout: Time for some gpu on gpu action ! :eek: That ain't no mirror ! :roll:

    Yup Thubans too lol... When the bios setting 'unleashing mode' is set to manual, I see the option to enable/disable cores 1-5. My gut tells me a 890g/850 chipset may unlock my Athlon II to x6. :D I should have enough cash to upgrade my mobo in 3-4 weeks.

    Videocard issue.

    I still don't get why you don't see my point. If you plan to run a gpu solely on its own, then yes your formula is right. To me, "combined amps on the 12v rail", means the number you will need to run a typical mainstream system with that particular gpu. When GTGear oc'd the 8800gt, it...

    heh.. I asked and no one responded to my post so I took it as a no. :( "Is that a Deneb under your HSF ? Or are you just happy to see me." :D Edit @MoonPig Gigabyte always has the best HSF design..

    Videocard issue.

    Using your formula works on my psu. 650w / 12v = 54.167a .. or.. 56a x 12v = 672w. This works great for calculating total power output. But not for power draw. Too bad manufacturers don't have a listing standard, when it comes to minimum power requirements. Some post the amps.. most do not...

    Now you're really talkin out of both ends ... You a polititian ? Lawyer ? :D When someone does not want something.. they say it ! You were definitely trying to take advantage of my generosity. I'm sure others have experienced the same. Too bad I deleted the PM.

    Videocard issue.

    As far as I know, every rail is/can be shared by the cpu, ram ect.. I have looked.. and nowhere do I see others posting your numbers. 16a for a GX2 ? lol Galaxy says... 26a .. http://www.galaxytech.com/en/productview.aspx?id=63

    Videocard issue.

    I meant for diagnostic purposes only. If it works, that means the first rail is burnt and the psu should be replaced, outright. Its also highly unlikely that his aging psu is capable of 18a. The 9800GX2 I checked out the other day had a similar story. It would not make it to the welcome...

    :D I prefer to see it as a 6970. Just as I see my cpu as a Phenom II, when unlocked. Too bad none of the guys on the "Phenom II OCers Club" thread, see it my way! :wtf: :banghead: If your air flow is good, temps will drop 1-3C. Bad air flow should show a 5-10C drop.
