    I plan add a second 5870 soon in my system, and im a little bit confused, i have read the Blue PCB 5870 ( Vapor X), have not tweakable voltage, at same time i see new Rev 2. card on shop, some look use the blue PCB, some not ( as the Asus who are using black pcb)..

    This is mainly for overclock and bench as one 5870 is largely enough for 1920x1080 max setting for all game now, and so i need offcourse a gpu i can overlock and mod voltage..

    Oustide the MSI lightning, i see a lot of result on XS with Asus reference PCB who hit 1400-1500mhz (LN2), and so i was ask me if it's a new reference pcb or if they made some change..

    Well from what i've looked at the asus PCB is not reference but it does support voltage control.

    Asus and MSI both have voltage control cards.
