Guys, it's not the 5970's themselves that he's having issues with. IT'S THE DRIVERS for the cards that are causing issues and he's not getting the expected performance that he was hoping for in all the games that he plays.

The heat problem he has is with the 980x. In my opinion there's no way it should be running at ~80*C under load with water!

He told me about his plans over the weekend..... right away I called him and tried to talk him into letting me build his next rig for him. But he likes the tech support at Dell. He can call them whenever he needs to, where he can't always be bugging the crap out of his friends for help.

However Slik don't forget, you can ALWAYS look for help at Hardware Canucks!!!!! This place can be of more technical support sometimes then Dell (or me)!!

I kind of wish you would have went Christmas shopping in August at NCIX and let me put everything together for you.
