Send a web note or ask in customer services mate. If not, you can always return it and then re-order

Id bloody hope so! Or that would sting, The codes are supposed to be in the box with the card so if its been packed and shipped early they wouldnt have time to put them in. I suppose they code email you them or like greg said if they gonna be funny send it back and buy a new one.

I'd hope they'd allow it and just send you the codes, saves them shipping it out again.

They have been a bit naff with orders but understandable if they are moving shop.

Its a bit harsh that theyve come into stock cheaper than the pre-order price

Not to nit pick but £312 vs £395
  • Much better cooling
  • Better looking
  • Back plate
  • Better stock clocks
  • Overclocking capability
  • "VGA Hotwire allows you to plug and solder wires on the card’s voltage regulators and accurately read and control Vcore, Vmem, and PLL voltages on a hardware level"
  • Better connections

I may be forced to gloat Mr Rossi if my £299+four free games 7970 reference is a better clocker than yours.

As i said elsewhere, it doesn't guarantee a higher overclock, just a better chance. Regardless of which, mine will be damn quite in comparison you enjoy your deafening card.
I got a load of free games as well you know

I just got the Powercolor dual fan V3 for £299, is that the card your talking about? Mine is a lil beast, clocks really well and low temps / silent. Best 7970 I've had yet..

@ 1150 core stock volts.

Just pulling your plonker.

The reference cooler is noisy, but its silent up to 50% which is all i need now thanks to the 12.11 beta's.

When's she due for delivery?

Looks like a DCII, probably explains why they've crippled DCII's.
Also all the advantages the DCII is meant to have

Pretty much. It's a non-crippled DCII with more stuff on the board itself in terms or monitoring and adjustments etc voltage and fan speed direct. Oh and pretty lights

The moment of truth is nearly upon you.

Will it be the card of your dreams or will fate shovel poo in your face?

Stay tuned for Miss Rossi Marple investigates.

What options have you got to crossfire with this 3 slotter?

I know most cases/boards will allow two 3 slotters but the gap between card 1 and 2 will be a couple of mm.

Tempted to get one and then another 7970 of some description to try for 14 days before deciding whether to keep and flog the 680's or send back under the satisfaction guarantee.

PS4 :/

Not many options to be honest. The RIVE will allow a bigger gap i think.

Good luck rossi, hope it's a good one.

@rusty,

the HafX is a great air cooling case is it not?

My top card was usually 10c warmer than the bottom one, when I had my AC Extreme CrossFire, but they were still plenty cool even though they were sandwiched together.

However, I think your mental taking the hit/hassles of swapping out your 680's for not that much performance-unless there are BIG gains at your res.

He's seen the light tommy and it was a red light, although he could have just been in a red light district.
