    Swapping slots on my xfire 7950GB cards had major temperature changes?

    I bought an XFX 7950 Black edition because of the good deals (free games; Under 200 AR). This is my first time trying a crossfire setup and I'm really enjoying it :). Minor gripes but nothing too big I paired it with a 1 yr old Sapphire 7950 that's running in my main PCIe slot. The XFX was...

    Do I have a real reason to overclock?

    7870... Who owns?

    I barely hear anyone mention things about their 7870... So I wanna see how many people have one. Current Sapphire 7870 OC owner here! Gaming has been pretty good so far :p Temps linger around 50c-62c Max though, which I hope is acceptable. 62c is usually on those hot and humid days.

    Add another 6870 for CFX or get a 7870?

    Hi All, I'm looking to upgrade soon but I have a couple routers I can go to. Right now I am using a 6870 on a Maximus IV Gene. This mATX board is CFX ready, however, I don't feel my current case can handle temps with another crossfire. So I'm thinking 2 options: -Another 6870 plus a new...

    The Phenom story/fail?
