3 out of 5 eggs Newegg to the rescue! 03/31/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 970 4GB TWIN TURBO OC EDITION

Pros: Works, mid-level performance

Cons: mid-level performance.

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte declined my rebate, it was late. It was a Christmas gift. I decided not to deface the package before the gift was opened.
BUT! Newegg customer service swooped in and rescued the day. Newegg ate the value of the rebate and Newegg remains my GOTO store!

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6970 DirectX 11 100311-3L 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Good specs

Cons: Never really performed as advertised. Paired up in crossfire...Low performance in BF3 and 4. Lags in anything above low settings. See Sapphire support ticket conversation.
SKU and serial # supplied on initial ticket form. Sequence starts at the bottom, newest on top.

Other Thoughts: 2013-11-26 [02:39]
Get me the sku# for both cards and i will check for you.
2013-11-25 [05:42]
I have supplied both sku#s to you. They are not the same sku, but they are the same chipset.
Is there bios update for either card?
2013-11-23 [02:54]
Thats what i imply, If the cards have the same sku# yes you can use the same bios on both cards.
2013-11-23 [02:52]
You're not answering the question. They ARE in crossfire. They ARE the same chipset.
Are there BIOS updates?
Can the same BIOS be installed in both cards? Is there a benefit from matched BIOS?
2013-11-16 [03:32]
Are they the same sku#? even if they have different bios they can still be in cross fire mode.
2013-11-16 [03:29]
Found sku of other board SKU#11187-00-40R.
Are there BIOS updates?
Can matching BIOS be used in both cards?
2013-11-15 [06:12]
What are the sku# on both cards? But as far as i know if both cards are the same chipset you can run them in cross fire mode, doesnt matter if they are different versions as long as they are the same chipset in CF mode it should be effective.

I have 2 6970 cards (in crossfire) purchased at different times, have different bios versions. The other is v013. Would like to have matched bios versions in both. Would this improve performance? Performance has never been that great considering the expense of purchasing 2 cards. Is there an update for either?

Western Digital Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: First upgrade to SATA6GB. Way faster than previous drives.

Cons: Began causing OS glitches over a year ago, but would pass WD diagnostics. SFC unable to repair. Would have to re-install OS. Finally failing to WD diag. RMA'd.

Other Thoughts: Too many WD drives failing worldwide. Way over expected MTBF. Loosing faith in WD products.
