I'm running two XFX 5830's. One has the old style cooler and the other has the newer (better) one. I'm running each at 958/300 and I'm getting 307mh/s from each stable.

The older style gpu is getting temps of 68C at 100% fan while the newer style (with 5 heat pipes) is getting 56.5. It's crazy.

I got this one back from XFX because the other one was dead. I'll run it for a while till it dies. Lifetime warranty, ftw.

I may also artic silver the GPU to lower temps a bit better. Or get an aftermarket cooler. All in all, under 70C and I'm happy though.

Didn't someone re-grease their 5830 with arctic silver and it made a big difference?

Just managed to find someone in the UK selling these at retail for £90 each. Seems reasonable given the ridiculously low supply of 5800 series cards on the market in the UK here (at sensible prices, that is - I can easily buy a 5870 for £300, which I'm not going to do...). Picked up a few to replace the disappointing single-slot 5770s now I've got more room in the open frame rig... they're on sale on overclock.co.uk - NOT overclockers, BTW...

...so I give in to the rhythm, the click click clack
I'm too wasted to fight back...
