and at some point i wanna install a 280 radiator in the roof of the case and water up the 5770 and a 120m rad at the back for the cpu and go from air to water :D:D and to make things even better wen the delivery guy turnt up i opened the box got the xfx out opened it and whalla a free copy of assasins creed for pc which wasnt stated on OCUK :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D wat i find most wierd is that it states that the cards overclocked and runs at 5200mhz but y does gpu-z show it as 1300mhz Posted Image

Nice, you got the xxx version??

Also, it looks like the non reference card, so may be a struggle to get a waterblock for it :/

Gpu-z shows it as 1300mhz, but x that by 4 and you get 5200mhz ;) Something to do with ddr5, same as ram u double it for ddr2 or treble for ddr3 or somethin like that :P

Yeh lol somethin like that, not sure how to explain it tbh xD.

And yeh there silent at stock speeds, but crank em up bit and there noisy feckers.

Class lil cards though, well worth the money, and well worth gettin 2 and xfirin them, hold there own against a 5870 in most things!!

Well tbh m8 the 5770 will be fine on x8x8 so i read somewhere, the diff between x16 will be small if any. Only like gtx295 and the bigger ati cards and fermi will utilize x16 lanes i reckon.

Have mine in x16 x8 and its spot on.

Are there any DDR2 Core i7/9 boards? Thought they were all DDR3. Some i7 chipsets needing 3 (or 6) ram modules, some i5 using just 2 (or 4)..

No pretty sure there aint. Core i7 for triple channel and i5 for dual channel. Core i7 yeh you can run in 3x1gb or 3x2gb etc and i5 2x1gb and 2x2gb and so on :)
