Currently running the CPU at 4.2Ghz I can hit 4.4Ghz and play games fine but its not Orthos stable. Im sure I can get 4.5-4.6Ghz with some more tweaking. You just really have to work hard to get great clocks with this board. Im still thinking about a 3rd loop for the chipset and mosfets.

They take less power then the 2900XT and my PSU was designed for 2 2900XT's.

If I run into issues ill get a new supply but I should be fine.

First off... lets get the obvious out of the way. Two cards give no benefit over 1 at the moment. But at least im ready for when the driver gets here.

Second, The MCW60 dosnt fit on the 3870X2 with the memory sinks installed. So I cant install my watercooling on the cards untell I get ramsinks or diffrent blocks. (Ill end up getting ramsinks)

Third, Really busy with work so havnt had much of a chance to test. But I did a 3dmark at stock settings 4Ghz with my system memory clocked way down (@667 default1000) and still got near 20k with 1 card.




http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=4963089




I also got a PS3 on the same day my cards arrived so when I get home from work I been playing that to relax.


The chick on these cards is so damn hot...


Picture Update:
