I have an MSI Twin Frozr II 5870 and a Sapphire 5870.

The MSI had a broken fan blade and the other fan wouldn't spin well (made loud noises), so I took the Arctic Accelero Twin Turbo Pro off of my AMD reference card to try and cool the MSI board.  It's not cutting it.. Even at stock clocks, I get up to 85C really quickly...  The Sapphire was shorted out with an HDMI cable somehow and blew out the HDMI port.  Now the card won't post (that's as far as I've gone with it).

For $250 FIRM, you get 2x5870 to tinker with.  I'm not sure about the warranty, as I haven't even contacted MSI or AMD...

Take a look at the pictures, make me an offer, or a suggestion as to what I'm doing wrong with the temps.  (took off Twin Frozr, cleaned GPU die, re-pasted, and installed Twin Turbo Pro).

I have sold on these forums before with good feedback.  Do your homework.

The 2nd card is dead as far as I know... I plugged an HDMI cable from my computer to my TV and a big spark occurred on either end, killing my TV and the card... TV was repaired under warranty, but I didn't send off the card to Sapphire.  Check out the pictures.
