    The 4850's scale much better if you have the right tools than the 4870's, so the man with the soldering skills will be set. The only problem.. Rivatuner doesn't adjust the clock frequencies so you guys will be stuck with the CCC limitations unless GamerHUD can adjust both cards.

    Hard to do a BIOS mod if you don't have an app to flash the BIOS

    Me, Hazzan and Andre X_X will attend this competition. Looking forward to meet with you all.

    And the interesting parts is we will use non reference HD4850 card , it will GiGABYTE own design HD4850 available at the end of this month. GamerHUD support offcourse and i don't think we need to re-flash the VGA BIOS.

    @Nightraven & T_M : just like old time mate.......

    yes sure, since GIGABYTE mentioned GamerHUD utility. But as we know, software always limited especially related to voltage. Btw, me, hazzan and Andre X_X are from Team Indonesia.

    2. The second rule of Bench Club is, you do not talk about Bench Club
    3. If someone says stop, goes limp, taps out, the the benching is over
    4. No bummers in the batcave, apart from unkie dave
    5. One Bench at a time
    6. No air, no water
    7. Benching will go on as long as they have to
    8. If this is your first night at Bench Club, you have to Bench
