You can throw me in the mix Don. I'm runnin a Sapphire Toxic & HIS 3870. I'm gonna probly look at a couple coolers for them soon. Although the Toxic stays very very cool compared to the HIS, so I may just look at a couple blocks if I ever decide to go back to water.

you're in man

i bet 2 used blocks are VERY cheapo?

Count me in, I run 2 x 1gb 4870's.

@Mussels, I use a P45 board and I don't have a problem with flicker. Very rarely use Vsync. The only game I have which had a problem was NFS Shift, which manifested in a flicker only on the headlights/brakelights and trackside lights. This was a driver problem as it didn't occur with 9.10. It started with 9.11 through to 10.1, but its fine now with 10.2.

Have you tried using the second card since 10.2?

Possibly. But not in the very very near future. Odds are will look into a new video card instead of watercooling.

A freind of mine had a nice P45 that did CrossFire well too. My x38 and x48 boards though, I had the shimmer with vsync off. I always thought it was the cards/driver problem, but perhaps it wasn't.

I've decided that tonight everything is getting dissassembled and cleaned. Then it's going back together and I'm going to take some pics for the case gallery, my old 3870 CrossFire rig is still in there. Still using the same case, but things are a bit different now.

Here's the old 3870 setup:

That case was so new and shiny then. :(

We'll see how she cleans up. Currently it looks like this:



TriFire with a 5000 x2 BE. Yes there was bottleneck:

Serves you right for being rich and going for the high end, lol! Seriously though, maybe it is limited to those chipsets:confused:
