    ASUS EAH5870 4-way Crossfire

    This is a quick first test to see if there is any real potential for some fun in Vantage. This is all aircooled with just CCC OC. I will add rig pics later, no camera here now

    5870 is amazing!



    Note that even though it is extreme preset a air cooled 965 is a pretty big bottleneck here. We are talking about 30k+ all ln2

    Hah. This is Kinc's thread Cwiss.

    Here's my request; every preset at 5.2GHz with all the cards on LN2 at 1200 apiece.

    I think you'll be fulfilling it, won't you Marcus

    And 30K X is a necessity.

    Oh.. that sucks I wanted to compare to my GTX295 setup and see if it is worth going to LN2 or waiting for 4 HD 5870. Guess I'll wait for the LN2 tests

    I don't think even 06 will show any significant gain vs 4x4890. 03 I suppose it should (single card is clearly way stronger), but we can probably count on lots of bugged cards as usual. :-/
