    @LuxZg My psu dont have any PEGs either, you dont need 2x 4 pins connectors to those adapters. Just use one 4x pin to each adapter.I tried with 2 and it doesnt make any differents at all. Tried in benchmarks etc. edit: a nvm saw you edit your earlier post..

    look above lol :P fan speed idlig 30%, under heavy load(furmark) 39%-45%. GPU never get more then 70c warm. I clocked my cpu to 3500 without a singel fps upgrade in crysis benchmark. That was indeed strange. So i guess its not your mhz but something else. I have P35 chipset, ie pce 1.1. Maybe...

    hmm tried with 1273, 1283, 1300 and 1400 without any difference.. guess your higher CPU mhz gives you the fps increase over me then i use the asus top bios atm, 30% idle, 39-45% under full load (furmark), the bios basically do what it can do have you gpu at max 70c

    Ive noticed that Crysis pushes the card fairly good also in terms of VRM temps, so try that.

    Just flashed my Club3D 4870 with the Asus one. Worked great, furmark stable at standard clock 815/925.

    HD4870 Furmark black screen crash.

    99% of the card now is reference design anyway so doesnt really matter ^^^Must been defective if you notice anything better.

    HD4870 Furmark black screen crash.

    afaik everest VRM temp stop working if you clock your card.. so try stock speed with furmark for correct temp edit: also AA enabled gets lower VRM temp (atleast 4x and 8x)

    Hey any chance you can take a picture of your card? Want to see your cooling solution. And btw you have maxspeed on your fan that is cooling the VRMs? What size is that fan? I noticed a big improvement in temps when turning the speed up on my 120s fan, not a big surprise though haha.

    nono im using everest like everyone else :P tested with all versions avaible, same high vrm temps. i did however put my finger on the backside and on the heat sink and it was really hot.. but ye that doesnt really tell you the exact temp :P

    The 4800 series Driver, OCing, Cooling and Tweaking Thread

    You cant read the VRM temp in GPU-Z afaik, if you mean gpu temp2 thats not VRM temp. Anyways i put on the oem backplate together with accelero and that gave better VRM temp for sure. Not close to stable 80c temp though. The more runs you do in furmark and build up the temp in backplate the...

    wow thats crazy, just 80c and 60c under full load. hows that possible... what everest you using. i use 4.50 1448 beta... dont see you get half my temp with different brand of heatsinks. something fissy going on.. i use OCZ copper heat sinks so should be good quality. U have 4870 or 4850 btw :P

    People with aftermarket coolers, how have you cooled the VRM? mine gets really warm. up 120c with furmark. I have put small heat sinks on them and a 120 fan blowing at low speed, but ye still high :/

    Anyelse experience that loading CCC profile at certain overclock will not work? I can load profile with better fanspeed till 820/1100. After that nothing happens to the fanspeed. Really annoying since its stable and no articfacts at all at that speed. I dont really want to oc without good...

    4870- NOT satisfied

    here you go, same cpu speed with my old 8800 gts 512 @ 810/1998/1023 vs 4870 @790/1050 ignoring the fact that the cpu score is 200 lower for some reason, but it used to change so doesnt really matter, but the sm2.0 score is so much lower. Kinda thought that 4870 would be more ahead than...

    4870- NOT satisfied

    Ye but my 3dmark06 score is way off if compared too Eastcoasthandle's. Dont think its only 300 cpu mhz that is doing that. Thats what im trying to solve ^^

    4870- NOT satisfied

    So did format and reinstalled windows. Installed the new offical 8.7 catalyst and the DX9 update.. still the same sm2.0 and sm3.0 score.. kinda annoying. Dont know whats up really now. Maybe try the older hotfixed drivers.

    4870- NOT satisfied

    Hi also bought the 4870 today. Sold my 8800 GTS 512, so didnt have to pay so much for the upgrade. Anyways testing Test drive i think i saw a steady 30 fps upgrade, so that made me happy. However when i tested 3dmark06 i was kinda surprised. Got basically the same score as my clocked 8800 GTS...
