The swag has landed!
 
The goods from the NV30 contest were sitting on my doorstep today ... T-shirt, hat, a little sticky brain (throw it at the wall -- it sticks!) ... and the 5800U. I have to run out again, so I hope to pop it in the system tonight and check things out ... I'll report back! :D

Many thanks to MikeC for shipping it out, and to nV News and BFG Tech!

Cheers,
JND

Thanks! :D

System specs in the sig below. Install was a breeze ... ran some quick and dirty benchies (I know, I know, but they're relaxing). That sucker is LOUD when the fan kicks in for 3D mode, though! I'm going to have to crank the speakers up a bit.

3DMark01SE
GF4 Ti4200: 11579
FX 5800U: 15072 (seems low, or is that normal?)

3DMark03
GF4 Ti4200: 1742
FX 5800U: 5474

AquaMark 3
GF4 Ti4200: 17223 (GFX 1965 / CPU 6981)
FX 5800U: 41812 (GFX 5958 / CPU 7005)

I'm about halfway through Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow. Something tells me the second half will be more graphically pleasing than the first half!

Cheers,
JND

Nah, the shirt gets worn to work tomorrow! :D

Though I must admit 88F is a bit warm for a cap. ;) I thought about sticking the sticky brain thing to my head so it looks like my brains are seeping out. Probably get me fired, tho.

Cheers,
JND

That's a nice upgrade from your old card. Those benches seem pretty much on target for that card so no need to worry there. Glad to see you're enjoying it, and I'm also happy that one of the forum vets received it. Enjoy!

I stuck it on my wife's head and said, "AAAH! Your brains are leaking out!" She smacked me.

Now I'm considering sticking the hemispheres in my ears to drown out the sound of that massive cooler...

Cheers,
