Xfx. Blk Vs Grn

Recommended Posts

ok so xfx has 2 differents 7800 gt's out... after looking at the forums at http://www.xfxforce.com/forums/forum.jspa?forumID=28 . ive been noticing ppl been having a hell of alot of issues with the black gf7800gt . im not all into looks but my case is blk so itd be nice to have something that matches. anyways does anybody have a black xfx 7800gt that theyve been noticing anything like ... artifacting, overheating, loud fan or molex connection prblms. id like to get this over the evga ... i havent found a dang trusted review for the PV-T70G-UDE7 . why arent the hardware reviewers flocking around it??? <_<

Ive got the black xfx 7800gt and it runs nicely. My average temps are around 40-45 idle and 50 load. The fan is are quiet to me and the molex connectors are fine.

 

Maybe i just got lucky for now! Really i know you want a black graphics card to match your case, but i dont really think you should look at it that way because you dont see the underside of the card. Its only black around the edges!

 

Heres a picture of mine: http://forums.overclockersclub.com/0005jpg_img-785.html

 

If you look at the top of it, it has a black trim and thats all you will be able to see when its in your case.

 

If you want a picture of it in the actual case ask me and i'll get you one!

welcome to XFX.

 

it actually has to do with who they buy thier cards from (no they don't make em).

 

One set comes from EVGA the other is from some off the wall company.

ok bigred. you are saying xfx buys their cards from evga ? weird.. well its too much of a gamble, unless xfx does a 180 with their prblms(mainly fan at100% all the time) with the blk7800gt im going for evga.. its too bad i would really prefer the xfx . i prefer silence over aesthetics

the PCB itself comes from EVGA (the green cards). XFX does thier own playing with the bios and cooling. what happens form their is between you and them :( EVGA won't help you in the least bit
