    Yeah, only to get it again after same amount of time. It was a SLI setup, with lots of noise and heat, both of the 2 twinfrozr coolers rattling/squeaking. I got fed up with the poor quality and bought a DCII 670. Hefty sum for not allot extra performance, but i'm still glad i did. Quality of these fans is signficantly better. Only downside is the DCII principle. I need to lap the heatsink base at some point if i ever want to OC it properly.

    @nocturnal, no i RMA'ed it because of the failing fans.

    The fans shouldn't be having the issues...

    Oh I thought you were talking about the declining stability of overclocks.

    I mean, in only a few months, it certainly is questionable. And on cards that MSI is touting as being able to be pushed more, it is kind of expected you'll be able to OC them a bit... so yeah, you probably could RMA for that.

    It is lovely, overclocks like a beast. If you want to talk about that more maybe http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...um-Chat-Thread is a better place to discuss it?

    This seems pretty impromptu. Why are you asking?

    My 7950 is having no difficulties whatsoever with WoW, SC or D3. Also no problem in MS flight simulator. The picture remains smooth even when the framerate drops below 30 at Sha of Anger

    I don't think you would get an infraction if you made a serious thread, I think the mods would prefer it over going off topic in already existing threads.
    You would probably get a lot more answers and opinions also.

    You made two threads today already, one yesterday, and another two a few days ago, then two more before the day before that, four threads before that... Saying you get in trouble for making threads is an understatement, and it's a bit silly to be so concerned about that now.

    Anyway, posting an actual thread that isn't basically just a single question, but rather a thread for discussing your to-come PC in full is better off than asking for build help in this thread.

    @ Ron Burgundy:
    You are very welcome to create your own threads on this subject. They would in fact be welcomed, especially if you manage to phrase your query in as neutral of a way as you can muster.

    @ Others:
    I understand you having good intentions steering him right, the way you are doing it is a wee bit off though.

    Like tetrisGOAT said, you would be better served to ask questions in your own thread, we simply ask that users try to limit the number of threads they create in regards to their build (i.e. you don't need a new thread for every new question).

    This thread is not for questions and answers in regards to a personal build. Those need to stop, as does the off-topic discussion/bickering.
