this is the exact card
it has the 2.2 memory also I have removed the metal plate on the gpu core.
and yes, it was using your latency mod suggestion.
temps were kinda high at 475/950 61c to 80c
at 450/910 its around 47c to 60c, idle/working.
as far as comparing temps with freak bfg, lol I couldnt touch the memory
chips in it (bfg) the leadtek is hot but not where it would burn you
the bfg would singe fingers.
Yep, no heatsinks at all on the sucker (leadtek) Also I did remove the plate on the gpu core on leadtek too.
so far I'm still at 450/910.
leadtek is much better deal then freak bfg/chaintech :-)
with 2.2ns memory chips with a rating off 900+, I can see why they don't run too hot compared to the BFG ! And obviously it was because it was burning your fingers that you swore at the BFG and not really because it was a bad card ???
I notice in the link you gave, that owners were flashing their cards with 5950u bios's ! Maybe something you should think about ? You will get better temp control with it !
Don't worry if your GPU goes up to 80C, its quite normal for a 5900XT card running at these overclocked speeds ! But because you want to overclock and run stable at high levels it is important that you improve the heatsinking/cooling of your card ? So make sure you also have a fan directing reasonable airflow accross GPU and memory ramsinks !
