Exclusively Designed Hardware Features
The EAH3870X2/G/3DHTI/1G comes equipped with the fastest upgraded DRR3 0.8ns memory modules, and harnesses the high speed capabilities of these super fast memory modules for the best performance. It is also exclusively equipped with two extra DVI outputs for a maximum of four-display video outputs. Additionally, the EAH3870X2/G/3DHTI/1G utilizes the specially designed dual fansink that effectively dissipates heat away from both GPUs – enabling much more stable performances in comparison to reference designed single fansinks.

Hottest DX10 Game Bundle – Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts is the second installment in the highest-rated strategy franchise that delivers an unprecedented level of realism and reveals a darker, more brutal war. With enhanced lighting effects, mission persistence, improved vehicle and soldier AI, enhanced physics and a dynamic weather system, this game will set new standards in visual realism for the RTS franchise. Utilizing the powerful performance of the ASUS EAH3870X2 Series, gamers will be able to enjoy the full graphical spectacle that the game can offer.

Unprecedented Rock Solid Quality from ASUS
In line with the Rock Solid promise of quality from ASUS, the EAH3870X2 Series comes with several solutions to provide top quality graphic performance. With the EMI shield, 3~10dB EMI Interference can be reduced to provide stable signals. The temperature of the newly adopted DIP Spring Chokes is 5~10°C lower in comparison to traditional Toroidal Coil Chokes; while the Japan-made polymer capacitors lowers power loss to provide more stability. Users will thus feel at ease while enjoying extreme performance with ASUS’ uncompromising quality only with the ASUS EAH3870X2 Series.
 
Yet another company releasing their version of the 3870X2, Asus looks like they have hit the nail on the head. What do you think? Better then the Club3D version? Please discuss on our Froums.

Ello all...

Quick question.. Got myself a PA120.3 and am looking to give it a flush out before I use it. I've read this in the forum:

Cleaning Copper Radiators
Radiators are the parts that are almost always dirty, and the ones that contain most of the dirt. So cleaning them is essential. They are a little harder to clean than water blocks, but they use the same cleaning ingredients. (Scrubbing bubbles is also known to work good. Its easy to use, just spary in in, fill the rad with water, then let sit for a little, and then rinse.)

1. Lay radiator horizontally, then fill with vinegar. It would be good to make sure the vinegar isnt touching the barbs, as sometimes the nickel plating is weak, and will get eaten by the vinegar. So best thing to do would be to remoze the barbs before using the vinegar.

2. Cover the holes for the barbs or plug the barbs, and shake the whole radiator. Shake it long and hard.

3. Let it soak for around 12 hours.

4. Rinse, and repeat.

5. Now, flushing out the vinegar and dirt... I connect a tube to the rad, then connect a funnel to the tube, then pour distilled water in, then shake the rad and then drain it. You should do this as many times as possible. More is better when it comes to flushing


But wanted to know if the vinegar is worth it or necessary? I'm sure I've also read that its not ideal anyway?

On another note.. Is surgical spirit safe to use to remove thermal paste?

Best place for pure water (de-ionised water becomes ionised in a few seconds, its just pure you need) is a dehumidifer if youve got one. Its free :).
