ya, the cooler on it sucks bad, and its not just the one i bought, cause i bought a 2nd xfx to pair with it and it was the same, perhaps i got these from a bad batch.
the heat was the issue for the xfx's, and that just aint right, less then 8 amps and few than 70 watts and these overheat.... something isnt right about the xfx coolers.
i already returned one of them, and currently just running 1 4770, and is the other xfx.
the sapphire 4770 that i have is back in its box, confirmed to be defective (altho it ran way cooler and could clock very well) it was my the cause to my random boot issues. ever since it was taken out, i have not had the random boot issue.
with all that said, my xfx @ default everything idles 15C higher than my sapphire did, and under load cant even complete 3dmark06 with a decent oc, i am not happy with the xfx cooler one bit, after i get a replacement card, im returning the last one i have back to fry's.
ati can suck on it for all i care, out of 3 cards that i purchased in the last 2 weeks, all of them had atleast one thing i didnt like.
xfx #1 (bad cooler)
xfx #2 (bad cooler and fan itself)
but if i had 2 good saphires that didnt overheat like the xfx's, im pretty sure if i ran them at the clocks i did for the single, 25k would not be a stretch.
