Was meant to ask if the cooler is going to be better than the stock cooler for regular 4870. Since this one is a factory overclocked card, shouldn't it run warmer than the vanilla 4870? Guess we'll find out when it comes out.

My System Specs


I thought this was going to come with a danger den block?
This looks like the stock cooler so it must run hot. Probably not much more than an overcooked 4870 with better firmware.

Anyway 4400 seems to be the max safe area for the "4870 memory" although the core has a lot of headroom- this core maybe even better. Hope it has a good warranty though via NCIX!!
