And you don't think evga or bfg will put a wc on a 275? Hell evga has them on the 260 so I am sure it will happen. You are such a ati fanboy that you will try to find anything to put down nvidia. You always bend facts to suit your needs and it is quite tiring. you should open your eyes and see good things and bad things both have done.
Really wish eva would do like xfx does and make both or xfx make a wc setup. I am going core i7 so I don't have to have 2 rigs. I like the option to go with which ever is better at the time and go crossfire or sli. I personally could care less with whichever is best just that I want it.
No way was it the 8600. I heard that it could go to about 890MHz with a volt mod, but I'm not exactly comfortable with volt mods. Most people aren't.
Ok, I have a question. For eg., if a 4850 can withstand heat upto 110C, and it goes to 70C on load at 700/1100, can you keep increasing it till it comes to about 100C load with something like 1000/1400? Only for benchmarking of course.
