    Huray for durable hardware! I was lucky, and besides two harddrives many years ago, and a ocz vector 2 ssd after more than two years, nothing really broke down on me so far.

    My 480s are both still working fine, though I've had to bake both of them at some point. I really need to get something cooler, with more VRAM.

    Wish i still had my 470, thing would do 950mhz on air, 1.275 volts. Gave it to a good friend of mine, and he killed it. :puke2:

    Always wondered what that thing would have done on water.

    I wish I had a water loop to see how high mine goes. It's a virgin, never overclocked. It ran too hot so I never bothered. In this PC I got it up to 91C in CS:GO. Stock cooler is pretty rubbish. But it does work.

    I traded my zotac 470 ( a launch card) for my XFX HD 7850 2gb. Also had a Gigabyte 560ti 448sp that I traded for the other HD 7850 2gb and that damn 7850 died two weeks ago. GTX 470 did 950 on air at 1.250. I even had my AIO water cooler on it. never went over 50c. I also had a gtx 560ti and that was a damn good oc card too. It did 1ghz at 1.3v but ran 90c lol I sold it to buy a gtx 470.

    Fermi were a little on the hot side but everyone I have been around and owned were strong cards. Never had an issue with them.


    I see he has a gtx 580 3gb now Thats a good upgrade from a gtx 480 imho. Im tickled to death as I just got me a Sapphire HD 7950 3gb. Just hacked up the stock cooler and modded with a Zalman AIO. Does 43c @1150 core 1.25v stock cooler was 85c and fan was LOUD!

    A zalman or arctic cooler solved that problem.

    Actually the 7xx series also has heat problems. For some reason overclocks get unstable and wonky above 75° C... no idea why. Solved now though, slapped a Arctic cooler on it.

    My 470GTX is still aging in a mate's PC.

    (my 770GTX is currently running 1306 Core).
