Now, the starring comes out!

It's about 27cm long, 13cm wide and weights 1.2kg.

Noticed the large fan? It's 10cm in diameter.

To take a feature for the fan.

It's really quiet and efficient. When the card was running with full load, the GPU temperature was only 43 degrees celsius.

Comparing to my 3870x2, its turbofan sounds like a jet engine. :laugh:

Back of the card. There are few chips here.

I think it will be more strong if there's a steel skeleton on the back. This card, especially its cooling system, is too heavy and might make the PCB bent.

Now set it in my case.

The case of mine is firm and heavy, but a little narrow. So it looks messed.

I indeed need a new and larger case. ^__^

Enjoy the quietness and better FPS than the 3870x2. Would have been great to see some old - new card comparisons in games. ENJOY!!

GPU-Z info. It displays ASUS EAH5870 because i didn't upgrade the driver. It was driven up by CCC automatically.
