    I'm in the same boat as Trig. I find this model particularly interesting as it has a seperate power circuitry heatsink, setting it apart from the other 3850's - hello reusing my current waterblock!

    These look good! Im sure they will be a popular choice around this time of year. Nice to have quick and silent.

    Nothing on this yet, I've ended up with the normal sapphire 3850 256Mb model which tbh is quiet anyways since it seems to throttle ram and gpu speeds dependant on workload which I missed in the review....
