  1. Everything dynamic and very positively! 🙂
    Thank you

  2. Thanks Erik, made my decision on what 4890’s im putting in crossfire

    • Hi Dan, I’m very interested to hear if you indeed set 2 cards in CrossfireX.
      I ran 2 in CrossfireX and was very disappointed with the temps (over 105° celcious) when playing COD4 multiplayer. Of course alll settings were maxed out but that shouldn’t be a problem for these cards. I hope you had a better experience.
      I have a well ventilated cabinet and good fans, so I don’t think that is the problem.
      I have sent them back and am now waiting on a result from the e-tailer.
      I hope they are faulty, if not then I’m afraid I’m not vapor-X’s biggest fan.
      Please let me know how you got on.

  3. Rather interesting. Has few times re-read for this purpose to remember. Thanks for interesting article. Waiting for trackback
