Ya trixx is nice also, i just prefer afterburner for the g15 lcd info it can display.
@noko u have a separate ac unit for your case or just pipe a line in from your central ac? The sandwich cfx arrangement i have prolly doesnt help my situation either.

I dont know if you wanted to go GTX680 for performance alone, but for example this:
http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/...cking_review/5
Shows you dont need to worry about performance once that 7970 goes above 1.2ghz.
lol not hatin'. I didn't want the extra volts and not really interested in maxing out CCC either. Difference between 1050/1500 vs. 1125/1575 was too little to really care. At 1050/1500 I was assured of temps exactly like they were at 925/1375.

Either way, what's done is done. Going to wait till end of next week or alternatively, will just get another 7970 and call it a day.

Separate unit, enclosed loop, can go below freezing temps on cool days air blowing into case, case is insulated on the inside which prevents condensation on the outside plus makes it more quiet as well. I normally direct the video card air output back into the case, don't want to loose any cool air . I always end up with video cards that exhaust in the rear which is some what a hassle, should buy the modified cards with fans blowing back inside the case but when I upgrade I usually buy a reference card when first launched. Case now would be considered a vintage almost antique design, it has only two 80mm fans exhausting . I think it was 2002 when I modified the case and built it for my Radeon 9700Pro, been working since with multiple motherboards and video cards.

im not 100% sure but i think the other ppl that voted they had remorse actually bought the 7970 unlike yourself. So you might be the solo troll

Garth Merenghi quotes
Most of you will probably know me already from my extensive canon of chillers including "Afterbirth" in which a mutated placenta attacks Bristol.

Everyone has a special talent. Mine is being able to write, produce direct, act, paint... Other people are good plumbers, that's their gift.

There are rebels and there are innovators. I'm a rebel. I play a rebel brain expert who's in rebelliance against conventional logic, who's in rebelliance against the world order. It's about rebelliance. And if that's not being an innovator, I don't know what is.

In times of conflict, when you're up against an agressor, be he human, be he inhuman, whoe'er he be, often he is both.

Greetings traveller. Who am I? Perhaps you have met me twixt sleep and and wake - in the penumbra of uncertainity you call unconsiousness... you know, my books are essentialy about "what ifs". In "Black Fang" I asked - what if a rat could drive a bus? And what if it and its rat brethren took over and ate Parliment?

A lot of people say "Garth Merenghi? Doesn't he write that horror crap?" Well, you're an idiot, because my books always say something, even if it's simple like "Don't geneticaly engineer crabs to be as big as man". There's always a message or a theme.

Shinny it isn’t but cool it is . It just doesn't cool a few components it cools everything which helps in OCing and stability. Main reason though was I was real tired of having a furnace at my feet making a room just plain hot! As well as noisy. So I came up with the ghetto cooler rig . So far the case and A/C unit has lasted 8 years . Some of the other benefits is it is dust free. Taking out a motherboard, video card and what not after three years (if they don't get replaced) come out as clean and as new looking as when they where first put in. No need to do spring cleaning and dust bunny hunting so to speak. My 5870 looks like it has never been used, not a spec of dust on her. The down side, there is always one, it does take more power to run but in the summer time that is offset some what since the house A/C unit would be removing the same heat anyways from the computer, so the house A/C unit runs less.

I will probably build a totally new custom case, at least a significantly modified one in the future with fancy temperature controller, motor starter etc. I want to incorporate a few other ideas as well as in with higher GPU/CPU loads the A/C unit will automatically lower the temperature, non A/C unit compressor modes etc.
