    Just replaced my Cougar Turbines on my H80 for two of the new Corsair High Pressure series. Temps went from a max of 54 to a max of 45 :D

    Thinking about swapping out my 7950 Vapor x for an NV card likely a 670

    Why? I hear with the new drivers the 7950 hangs with the 670.

    They do and I have a beast of a card that surpasses some overclocked 7970's and 680's though I have my TV connected via HDMI and it's unusable for watching movies on since I got the 7950 as the screen gets a pink hue over it after any amount of time, I have tried different drivers, changing the resolution/refresh rate, changing LCD coulour profile all to no avail, it's specifically an AMD issue though the card isn't faulty it's either drivers or the hdmi controller which causes it so I can't RMA

    Too late, I went with the G510 as the store didn't really have much of a choice in and it had to be a there and then decision as I wasn't buying :/

    Thanks anyway. :)

    Ah well thats a good reason. I just got the 670 in my specs last week and I gonna say its bad ass. Everything on Ultra and 2xAA in BF3 it has NEVER gone below 68FPS in heavy action. Its faster then a default 680 also.

    For anyone who's been following my recent posts that "friend" who said the card was pretty much screwed brought the card up today I did a straight exchange with him as he was in a rush.... (and it's less hassle)

    Anyway the card is now in my rig and from the looks of it is working perfectly! I'm going to run a few tests with Heaven and 3DMark but I'm pretty confident the card will be fine even then.

    I may end up seeing what TPU members offer me for it as I have no use for it myself.

    Why is TMM more active in this forum than most other "Brits"? The shame, the shame!

    Quantity first, once we have enough of them then we can start focusing on QC :D

    Oh, I heard the entire UK is frozen over, except of course London and South East. I wonder how people up north is doing

    We may have to come to some agreement. :)

    Meh... I'm pretty much central England and it's not that bad here, it is a little frosty but nothing serious or even anything unexpected for this time of year.

    Yeah -3 here, we have relatively nothing except puddles, clouds, a few frozen puddles along side the puddles. North is cold, fucking cold, and filled with snow like it is 70% of the year!

    It's the Yanks. They screwed up the flow of the Gulf Stream with all the fossil fuels they've been burning.

    I believe his definition of Yankee is different from what you have in mind.

    You are north of the Mason–Dixon Line. You are a Yankee.
