    I have had my 920 for quite some time now, but I am reaching the point where I am coming close to building a whole new system. But before I do that, I wanna make use of all of my PCI-E 16 slots.

    I have had rather pleasant RMA throughout most of my time as a PC enthusiast, but holy crap the Sapphire brand sent that streak to hell. About a month and a half ago, one of my 7850s' fans had malfunctioned. One of the sleeve bearings on them had gone loose and made the fan crooked enough to...
