Thanks, not a 100% sure i can get the card this weekend...so might be Monday ...

Will keep an eye on the guru3d link you mentioned. Afik the hotfix was suppose to fix some issues in games...

Fan hack is defiantly the first thing i am doing. Fan speed sound is no issue for me...i use headphones to game with. & i run my GX2 on 100% fan speed during gaming..and that's 2 tiny fans in there...

Can't wait..i should get a pretty huge boost coming up from my 7950gx2.

wow there is defeantly something wrong with the 8.6 hot fix lol..look at the min fps on cod4 results..
