3870 X2 ...HIS or Saphire?

Recommended Posts

ive pretty much always went with asus but im thinking of leaning towards one of the HIS or Saphire just because they have a higher rating? any suggestions? is one more reliable than the other?

If they're both based on the reference design they will be exactly the same, but I have heard of HIS 3870s with bad or no memory contact to the cooler or being clocked so high that they're unstable, that was only the ICEQ versions though.

 

EDIT: Crap, just noticed the X2 part, in that case they're the same AFAIK. Only the shorter ASUS one with the different cooler isn't based on the reference design.

 

A bit off topic, but how's crossfire working with that mobo? Mine's not working right and I can't figure out why.

i've only own 1 asus video card and it was my last.

 

asus warranty suck, you cannot cahnge the coller without voiding your warranty ...

 

i would go with HIS or sapphire.

Well AFAIK the only company that allows cooler swapping is EVGA, and they're nvidia only.
