I was having non-stop EUE's on my GX2 for some time and almost divorced it. Ever since I opened her up and replaced the TIM and the temps plummeted from the 90's, and updated to the latest drivers after doing a thorough sweep of the old ones, the thing has been folding away non-stop. I'm hoping I can find another one for a good price and put them in a rig together. It's proving to be a dependable folding workhorse. And I'm pleased to say it's gotten quieter too since the TIM upgrade 'cause the fan doesn't need to run full boar anymore.

My 4870x2 isn't doing bad either...usually between high 7k-high 8K PPD.

jack I thought you were going to throw that 9800gt I sold you in with your 9800gt+? Are you really going to try it with your 285? Ohh man On one hand if your able to do it I'll be really happy for you but on the other hand I'm going to be royally pissed that I couldn't get it to work! *sigh and I missed out on that NCIX deal for another 260 for just $209

....and then you attack with your bunch of 295s...

BTW where are you on the queue? Took me about a month to get my turn (and in the end, they sent me a SSC model instead of the vanilla)

I'm at 204 and 205 now (I bumped up another 3 since yesterday)

On Monday I was 386, so can't complain!

I'm also #6 for the Classified whenver they decide...I'll probably get slammed by all the stupid step ups at once

Probably better to get it all over with at once. The shipping was very fast, but I paid for express. Took about a day and a half I believe.

It's not mr. zlojack you have to worry about right now, it looks like 4DoorGTZ has got his other GX2's cooking...

Haha there is little I can or am willing to do against these dual-core monster cards. The only thing I can do is put all my PCI-E slots to good use, optimize, and never turn my computer off!
