I don't think your friend gave you as sweet a deal as you think. A brand-new OC 1070 can be had for $400 , with a full warranty, that right angle power thingy and a coupon for GoW 4. The STRIX OC model you have is $430 after a $20 rebate , and also comes with GoW 4. living in Saudi Arabia cheapest ...

Re: Help me review my system

Also as you are targeting high framerates, you will need to upgrade the ram for the highest speed you can reasonable afford something 2133+mhz helps with the framerates when over 100.

I've experienced no such issue since upgrading to Radeon Crimson last Wednesday. Temps stay at 75C or under just like with the previous drivers.

Guess that's cuz u have the new 300 series less attention given most likely to anything lower.

Crimson drivers come with added functionality of the fan speed not working right :/ I myself have the problem of it setting itself to 100% after boot... annoying, and had to install one thing at a time since it would not install otherwise.
