    Need to find a VGA cooler for 4870x2

    I'd have to argue the point that my card is outdated. Even today, DX9 is used primary for coding games, with a few DX10 and even fewer 10.1 here or there. Even still, those DX10 games are barely better than their DX9 equivalent. DX11 won't be mainstreams for much longer than It will take for me...

    Need to find a VGA cooler for 4870x2

    The 4870x2 is actually quite fast, even for a previous generation card. I'd bet money its faster than one 5770.

    Need to find a VGA cooler for 4870x2

    the 4870 has 10 and 10.1 capability and It is my understand it is more powerful than the 5770. Besides, DX10 is barely used, I have a lot of time to consider DX11 lol

    Need to find a VGA cooler for 4870x2

    I'd rather not use two coolers, I prefer to have one single piece cooler that covers both gpus :/

    Need to find a VGA cooler for 4870x2

    Arctic Cooling no longer lists the 4870x2 cooler, however they have a new one for the 5970: http://www.arctic-cooling.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=2_&mID=545 Is the spacing on the 2 cards the same? Could I use this cooler on the older card?

    Need to find a VGA cooler for 4870x2

    Story: Shipped my water cooled computer from home to my dorm and due to the weight of all the water cooling parts, the motherboard broke. Because I have to ship it often, I need to switch to aircooling. Problem: My graphics card, the radeon HD 4870x2 had a waterblock installed and I no...

    Need help diagnosing the cause of this problem:

    Hey. after taking out the CMOS battery, and unplugging the powersupply, and a few hour wait it turned on! Then as I was looking in the case to make sure everything is okay I see a water droplet fall from the video card and hit a black chip on the motherboard, and though I lunged to pull the...

    Need help diagnosing the cause of this problem:

    I'm going to try to borrow a power supply sometime today to try. As for now, I'll remove the CMOS, shut power and wait a little then try again. Just a note, this is my second Rampage Extreme and this one is only a month old. It's ridiculous that anyone should have these problems on a (at the...

    Need help diagnosing the cause of this problem:

    I checked for leaks. Unfortunately I don't have an extra powersupply to test. But the one I'm using is brand new.

    Need help diagnosing the cause of this problem:

    Preface: My system was running stable for awhile, and while playing the Sims 3 just shut off. After turning it back on I used default BIOS settings to try and figure out what happened. After loading the OS it took about 3 minutes and it shut off again. After a few more tries it got to the point...

    Heakiller 3.0 775 Screw problems

    I have the heatkiller 3.0 775 version and 2 of the screws rolled into a place in my house which might as well be a black hole (well its a physical hole at least.) The website says the screws are M4x25 with a spring. Is there a place to get the screw and spring replicated? If not do they sell...

    How to transport computer?

    Hey everyone :D I just got a new apartment (brooklyn baby!), and I just happened to finish my new rig. It's watercooled and has a lot of copper weighing down the motherboard as well as two separate loops. Between the copper and the water the motherboard is supporting a lot of weight. How should...

    Waterblock problem on Asus Rampage Extreme

    I've been using the Apogee GTZ with the Xigmatek crossbow backplate (to avoid that dumb placed chip). Now I'm using the Heatkiller 3.0 (Amazing block btw), which has a really nice mounting system, but doesn't work with the crossbow backplate. I really want to avoid the dremel, so any ideas of a...
