    Don't worry, aKho. I pretty sure you'll get your card and everything will be just fine. I'm really happy that it worked out for you.

    props to FEDEX for giving me a tough time getting the package open. I had to finally use a pen knife to cut the side to get it to open up, tearing doesn't work. :whistle:

    so does it run this time? hell ya!!! :thumb:

    Thanks Adrian, ARP forumers, NVIDIA, everyone. :pray:

    Simple - donate to Adrian Wong. ;)
  15. He is selling his Winfast and keep this. I will do the other way round if I were him.

    i've checked, the NVIDIA is a reference card (given to manufacturers like LeadTek, Gigabyte, Albatron etc as a reference model) so you practically can't buy them, very unique. :o

    but anyway, the cooling fan is not as good as Winfast, so i probably gonna get one of those artic cooling silencers to replace it. :p

    i also noticed this card runs at around 54'C idle...and can go up to 61'C and more on full load! :shock: it's pretty hot when i touch the base...is this normal temperature for a graphics card? :think:

    Yup. It is a unique reference card. ;)

    Well, you can always change the cooler if you want to. :mrgreen:

    wont work with different vendor..
    if the layout of the pcb is the same..
    do you think flashing both with the same BIOS will enable SLI ? :think:

    Won't take that long until Rel80, so you just have to be a little patient .. ^^

  20. I mean if u want to go for SLI, u can get a Winfast 6600GT more easier than getting this unique card. But maybe u don't have the intention to get SLI setup.;)
