more modern boards are probably able to bypass this issue, but unfortunately OP i think that's a limitation we cannot remedy.

What hurts the most with that setup is that its pci-e 1.0 and by using the second x16 slot you are cutting the lanes down to 8x/8x. The 8x you're running now is as fast as pci-e 2.0 at 4x on a P45. I think you might actually be making that 5970 beg for its food a little bit


@zezasu I think you'll be quite impressed at the 5850's performance and quietness at idle and load.

What I am looking at is for its quietness late into the night because my dang walls are thin and have no sound deadening so noise transfers very easy and since I am in between i get a lot of slack from everyone. So I am hoping it runs cooler even if I loose performance. Coming from a 9500GS Nvidia card I wont be extremely bothered, rather more happy about it.

I am not looking for maximum FPS. I do play at 1920 x 1080 with everything cranked up, but if anything most of my games will never stress the cards to its max potential. But being able to play at max settings and still have it cooler is something I would enjoy.

I am glad I got the CPU cooler also considering I have to raise it to at least 3.0 GHz to feed the 5850.
Ahh reminds me of having to get better fuel lines for a bigger turbo in a way for it to have more power. Except my car can be loud and I wont mind as much, lol. Thanks guys for your information.


I cant help but wonder why you have a 5970 and a GTX 260. Different OS's? Or are you able to use the Phsyx and let the 5970 run at the same time
lol.... nah im using hacked drivers so i can run physX with ATI

my board does x16 & x4 when two cards are installed, so the 5970 is running @ full x16 but the 260 is @ x4 (for physX), but thats more than enough for that.

but yes as theyre PCIE 1.1 slots, but the cards dont want for power, where the board limitation begins the PSU picks up the difference.... so the rig belives the 5970 is on a PCIE 2.0 slot...

I run a diamond hd 5770 and had no issues with it i have a hybrid crossfire board but i would have to use a lower card like a 4870 so on anyway sticking to one care would be more idle and it should run pretty silent then new cards like the 5970 which i know is around 499.99 would be able to run 6 screens instead of the standard three anyway i dont see any difference in when i play games with people who have high standard cars matter fact my time for intering and response time is pretty rocket like and also stays very cool always around 45 to 50 and i have it oc'ed and if you are looking for a cooler heatsink go with a coolermaster pretty decent and keeps my cpu at a 30 32 on full load idle sometimes drops to 28
