Hey guys,

last friday I finally received my x800xl from club3d.

I was looking up a review on the club3d x800xl on viperlair.com, and they stated the following specs for the card:

• Fully DirectX 9 Compliant
• 16 Pixel Pipelines
• 6 Vertex Pipelines
• 256 Bit memory interface
• Club 3D White Blinking “intelligent” Cooling
• YPrPb component out 720p 1080i
• 0.11 Low-k technology

I was made to believe that none of the 800xl's were made with low-k tech and therefor were pretty lowzy overclockers, what is the deal here?

I have read other reviews of the x800xl, but then other brands and all those reviews stated that the card was without the low-k.

Anyone have a clue on this one??

Thanks for any info

Try to oc it and see what happens. Is it AGP or PCI-E? AGP bersions are the r-420 core as the r430 is the PCI-E

that's the thing, I can't do that yet.

my puter is all but complete, just waiting for the cpu, which will be venice core.

I have been waiting for it for almost a month now and it should be here pretty soon I hope.
So I can't overclock it yet.

But I'm gonna see what the temps are gonna be on the card and put some ramsinks on the ramchips, cause for some reason they made the heatsink in such a way that it doesn't cover the ram.
