ENERMAX REVOLUTION85+ ERV1050EWT 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Compatible w/Core i7 Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: $75 off was nice.
Runs COLD @ 60*F (Bios Temp)
Runs SILENT @ ~650RPM (Bios RPM)
Doesn't break a sweat running my 955BE & Dual ATI 4890's (XFX - HD-489A-ZDDC)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: LOTS of CABLES...Awesome
Make sure to check your load balancing for devices, I put HD's on rail 4 and DVD & BluRay drives on Rail 6

XFX HD-489A-ZDDC Radeon HD 4890 XXX Edition 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: ATI Radeon 4890?!? Temperature control is VERY easy in CCC. 35% keeps cards COOL and quiet! Fan's can be silenced by my Samsung LN46A750 (46" 750 Series) @ very low sound levels. DVI to HDMI converter works flawlessly. XFX Support and Double Lifetime warranty! (They answered all 5 of my questions prior to buying 2 of these, and my last 5 questions after buying these, without failure on their part!)

Will also run games and video at very high settings while UNDERCLOCKED! perfectly fine! (& cooler)

Cons: Hot idle around 120*F w/ custom fan settings this can be lowered to 110*F easily. Underclock the card while not playing games and this can be lowered to even 100*F

Other Thoughts: Custom fan controls are the way to go to keep these baby's cool! When in crossfire, use lower card as primary card to keep temperatures even (and lower) between cards, main card runs slightly hotter (~5*F) than second. (Heat rises)
