Today marks the day XFX launch their single slot HD 5770, a great product for any looking to build a HTPC or someone who needs the expansion slot between two PCI-E ports. It's not just practical for that though, all round it seems to look like a very strong card. We really liked the sound (no pun intended) of the fact this card is up to 23.5dB quieter and XFX have also said it runs cooler that the dual slot cooler.

XFX were also marketing it's IP-5X dust protection system which they claim keeps dust levels down to a minimum.

To our disappointment XFX continued their trend of only using a single CrossfireX bridge port, meaning only two cards may be in crossfire mode at any one time.

We also noticed XFX have launched two versions of the card. One sports two DVI ports and a mini display port connector while the other sports five mini display port.

So this new HD 5770 is thinner, quieter and cooler which easily makes it one of the best HD 5770 options to date.

Hey everyone,

I decided to replace the tricools in my 1200 so I bought 5 Enermax Apollish fans. I also bought a fan controller, NZXT Sentry LX

The fans came with auto-temperature control so I cut the resistor off and soldered the 2 wires together.

It all fit in the case perfectly but I have and issue with the controler :

-When I turn off all fans (set them to 0 RPM) and then on again to the lowest speed, it shoots straight up to 1700RPM. Then the speed starts decreasing except on random 1 fan (always 1, never the same) which stays at 1700 for a minute more then goes down like the others.

-Going from higher rpm down to the lowest doesn't do that apparently

I want your opinion now, it might just want to determine the max fan speed but I can't be sure, should I RMA it ?

Oh and I've also been left with 5 fully functional tricools, how much can I sell them for ?

You cut the resistor off the fan controller or the fans?

And the fans, stick up in the FS&W for what you think they are worth and people might make a offer.

Off the fans of course. I wouldn't have full control if each fan was controlling itself.
