That is SO hawt !!!!!
They all going to fit in that Cosmos I see ? Man they look hot.....
No! Fractal Design fans come in the Fractal Design case! Will be a total of eight fans. For now.
Wow just looked at some of their cases,Man that Black Pearl is sweet for a mid tower that acts like a full.
It does look nice, but if you look at the gpu in the one pic with a system in the case, you will notice that you will not be able to put any large gpu's in that case
A 5850 will fit, a 5870 probably not.
thats just a question about modding skillz
Some 2gen ago sexiness (3870) currently in the rig.
I like the cooler hate the chip.
No doubt, IDK what ATI was thinking with the HD 2 & 3 series
All bark no bite.
maybe the 2k series but deffinately not the 3k. The 3k was all about efficientcy than power...
I took a few pieces of white paper and made a little photoshoot cage
My 32GB iTouch 3G w/ mirrored screen protector:
heres a couple I just took. man the dust on my tracers ewwwww
Gigabyte GA-790FXTA-UD5 AM3
Here is an old shot of my two 4870's with Koolance WB(s):
i dnt understand i had a hd 2600xt an e2180 oc a bit an that combo performed realy well, had to turn new games down a tab an aa was out the question but sloghtly older games like timeshift around that age performed real real well, even crysis played well dnt get me wrong my current combo kicked it arse but they wernt that bad
I had an 8800gt and 2900xt back in late 08', combo'ed with a E6300@3.2GHZ while playing crysis@ 1280 the 8800gt owned the 2900xt plus it made my desk area feel like there was a camp fire around me.
Its been beaten to death but the 2900xt was a let down for its price.
(BTW I've owned 3 already well one was a pro teh always turn up when Im in need of a video card)
I forget how much money I paid for the 2900XT, but it was a lot and I was expecting great performance from it. Never happened:shadedshu
I quickly moved on to 2 3870's and was a little bit happier...
thats a revised 2900xt (rv670). the 2k and 3k series were really not worth their money. with the 4k series things changed alot
I have a 2900XT sitting next to me right now
The 3800 series was certainly worth the money in my opinion.
I had two 3870's
Unfortunately, a single GTX 260 made both of my 3870's seem dumb.
Actually, when the 2900XT released, it's price was about right. It's target was the G80 GTS and it competed really well with it, and was priced roughly the same. It was a heater tho. And the 8800GT was definitely a better card.
I'm using a 3850 right now
Wanted to join in XD
Had a 3870 as well, still plays most games at reasonable settings, not maxed out have to skip on draw distance an AA often but still, I paid 25 quid for my 3850
Also the stock coolers look awful ( in terms of cooling)
They have such a tiny tiny amount of actual heatsink!
my 3870 died a strange death...
i shaved of 9 transistors with a sharp heavy skrewdriver, once.
i just penciled between the now empty contacts, some of them 2 cm away from the core
it ran perfectly for half a year,after that,without a hiccup,or even lowered OC.
then, one day it made: "BBRRRZZZZT" ,and it died, along with taking my board with it (pci-e burnt out,not even onboard worked anymore)
