Not enough snow (to close the schools) here down in London. Hoping for more snow.
i bet it was you who snatched up the last 5970!!!
where u getting em from mate??
MORE SNOW AND NO WORK FTW!!!
our council is soo f****** lazy.... they just dumped the grit in massive piles on hill's
thank F*** my transit has traction control
hehe yeah - i got mine from overclockers.co.uk - i paid for a xfx 5970 standard edition but because of the delays in them getting in stock they gave me a xfx5970 black edition instead
I live in the countryside so there are no gritters out here, been trapped at home since the snow hit, oh well
LMAO it was you!!!!
how you liking the card?
looks like you will be using it quite frequently over the weekend mate... hehe
make sure u have plenty of food and water. if not u could always melt some snow....but dont melt the yellow stuff
.Seriously be careful.
Card's pretty good (tons better than my 4870x2) - word of warning though the overvolt tool doesn't save settings so if you shutdown/statup again and left the card overclocked in the CCC then you get system lockups as soon as the CCC starts to load as even if it's in 2D mode it crashes the drivers if running on stock voltage and 3d clocks set too high (i don't now why - xfx know of the issue and wont fix it anytime soon )
I'm currently trying to use msi afterburner but that doesn't have the ram voltage controls :shadedshu
seems to me to be some fail from ATI driver Dev. Similar stuff happened to the 4800 series on release as well.
shouldn't really need to overclock the card anyway
have fun with your 5970 buddy
only just noticed your post cheers man
Cold and bored lads, and the snow is melting.
It's actually snowing again here! Whoop whoop.
Oh with any luck that means I'll get some in 4-5 hours
I hate the snow i fell on my ass carrying two bottles of sprite
It was the Sprite, sprites that did it!
Sprite replaced my blood.
Infact now I think about it; sprite ruined a game of l4d for me yesterday
Im under a lot of stress....last monday - I took 1 of my 4870s back to the shop for RMA. after a bit of a chat with them & joking around that I hope sapphire send me a 5870 back - the guy bought it up that they could just send me back a 5770 if they cant find any 4870s
I should get the card back by the end of next week some time (at least thats what the guy in the shop said) but im still worried....
I may have to sell my remaining 4870 for a 5770 for crossfire.... or just sell them both & get a 5850
Or sell the 5770 and buy a used 4870 for a lot less, thus making a profit
blah, I hate buying pre-used hardware. but we shall see.
a 5770 is less powerful cuz of the 128bit memory interface right??
LOL check the new 3d06 bench thread, I have just hit 28k with 2 x 5770's
The mem oc's like a dream making up for the 128bit bus
well I'll see what happends. anyway - I'l definitely bench both 4870's 'if' i ever get it back.
But i thought 3d06 didnt support duel or crossfired cards??
yea 06 does, well their is a difference when i enable and disable crossfire anyway
been snowing like hell in Brighton today, has just stopped, have -4.3.c on a calibrated temp gauge damn cold out their
EDIT: sorry to hear about your 4870 freedom hope it works out
its snowing yet AGAIN tonight and tomorow >_>
Thats good matey, looks like no college on Monday! OH YEA!
And risk of not getting money and food from our parents to feed us=BAD
my rooms FREEZING without my missing 4870....its usually fairly warm in here but 1 4870 doesnt cut it....
damn you global warming maybe I should turn the fan on my remaining 4870 down so temps are sitting just under 50-60c - its just sitting above 40'c right now
Do you mean off?
If you do, your room will probably will colder as the heat will just stay in the case instead of going out in your room.
Fans and heatsinks don't make things colder just move where the heat is.
Im talking about the fan on the graphics card - not the ones on the case - got 5 fans on my 902.
