    Woohoo chrimbo has come early

    no real point to this thread,i just want to show off my new goodies

    i had a nice little suprise on sunday when royal mail delivered a package from usa and yesterday i got my sapphire 9800pro and my new psu.

    3 days from indiana to newport,nice 1 gary at sidewinder..top service.



    to call it a tight fit is an understatement.





    at the same time i fitted some ramsinks and a silent vga jobbie to the 9500pro.

    now have it running 232x10 ,idle sub 40*c,load 45*c - 47*c.thats with the fan running 2600rpm which is very quiet(shifts 119cfm full speed)controlled from a zalman fanm8 fitted in floppy drive blank


    3dmark 2k1 score

    Do you have a link to that place?

    Whats the fan on that HS?

    Are both the chipset and the hsf noisey?
