    Sapphire 6970
    Hi.

    Yesterday I bought my second sapphire 6970 to do crossfire. I have the old model and which I bought yesterday is the new customized version. Does anyone have this version? it's very noisy. I think is because fan is smaller than the old version. And another cuestion. if i want crossfire, Does the bios version must be the same?

    Thanks and sorry about my english XD.

    They only need be the same model. Manufacturer can differ, bios build can differ, even the clocks can differ, but they must both be the same model...(ie...5850s...or 6950s) The bios is what determines the "gender" of the card. It is usually ideal to get identical cards to avoid any odd issues but crossfire will still function.

    it's normal i think your upper card can't bread so the fan run higher .
    I had to change the coolers for my 6950 cfx to resolve the problem .
    Nothing to do with the bios i'm afraid
