heh, Chris, I was about to post that.

Clay, GREAT review. I really liked the way you set the performance charts up.

Thanks guys and thanks for the typo catch. Fixed now.

@fuelrod Some BFG cards have had Arctic Silver applied so that could be part of the reason.

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.

Hrm, they sure as heck didn't appy it on mine. Didn't affect my OC at all, but the temps on my GT are much higher than reported in this review.

Not at all, thanks for the feedback. So far only you have SH64 have preferred a different style though. Some people like to see the resolutions on the same line. Plus, the red and green fonts should be pretty obvious I'd think. It was to everyone I showed prior to posting. Again, just personal preference and I'll probably provide the user with either option in the next review.

Okay Sat...I decided to pull of my HSF and see what I had. The AS3 statement I made was just hearsay but now I can confirm that it is on my GPU. I'm going to re-clean surfaces with alcohol now and apply some Artic Silver Ceramique of my own.

nah the layout is okies...


the colors you used are not bad either...

what I was saying is for the rows... perhaps have the ROWS different colors... say white one row... light gray the next and so on... or group em together...

it makes it stand out more and you can always denote the "winner" of a particular bench by highlighting the box

Hey guys, Artic Silver Ceramique is okay for GPU applications right? Off to google for a bit. Once I have HSF back on and card in rig I will report back temps at idle and under load.

Here are some pics of a clean (well almost, it's cleaner now, trust me ) core and the underside of the HS. It could use some lapping...might do that one day and eek out another 5MHz or so.

Nice pics Clay. Now that you have exposed the HS fins, install a Vantec Fan Card under it. This thing lowered my load temps by 11C!

Seems to be about as good as regular AS, probably a little safer since it is claimed to be non-conductive.
