Awesome day today. My biology teacher saw a kid sleeping and poked him rather hard and demand the answer to a question. They got into an argument and she told him to go sleep somewhere else and that he was a punk kid. He told her to go suck his d*ck and he just completely manhandled her. I waited for him after class and shook his hand.
Yeah, the ATI cards are just as predicted. Slower than the 8800GT, but also a bit cheaper. The fact that the HD3870 uses a two-slot cooling design probably means a lot of people will get an 8800GT instead (if they can find one). The cards do get just as hot as well, although they seem to be quieter under load. It was good of ATI to come out with a mainstream card or two, and the features are good, but if they want to regain some respect, they need to come out with a beast of a card to put nVidia back in it's place (like the good 'ol Radeon 9700 did).
[edit: after reading the article, looks like ATI is planning an HD3870X2; a dual GPU card along the lines of a 7950GX2. Wonder if nVidia will have an answer to that...]
Well I finished my external air mod. Air is being filtered through the window screen & a high tech application of pantyhose.
Temps under a test at 3.6GHz (since most ppl cannot achive 3.9) 1.4875v resulted in the following temps.
(outside temp 36F/2.2C)
Idle- 22.5C/21.0C (core 1/2)
About a 10C differences in temps.
Can't imagine what it will be like when it really gets cold lol.
