Default Any interest of GTX 285 gainward review?

Hey guys,

I can do a brief review on the GTX 285 Gainward if you guys have any interest.
Probably will do 3Dmark Vantage, 06 - factory and overclock.

Also, I'll be replacing the cooler with HR-GTX 03 pair with scythe gentle series to make the card runs quiet.

Let me know if you guys are interested. I'll post pics and screenshot of the results etc..

Go for it, can you do a comparison to the HD4890?

Would love to but don't have the card.. lol..

O yea, I'll do some game benchmark as well like Warhead.

Also, 4890 should be compared with GTX 275 I think..

Sounds good, if you can please include benchmarks for these titles too...

Crysis (orig),L4D, Fallout 3, GTA4, COD4/5, Mirrors Edge. If you have any of those I would really appreciate a benchmark.

Thanks

my rig gets 66 fps in my demo and mine is no little panty waste.

Here's a bit of the review, I'll do some benchmark once I've done my exam (tomorrow morning.. >.<).

I just installed the GTX 285 Gainward Golden Sample that I bought yesterday because my old graphic card decided to die yesterday... what a coincidence... lol..

Anyway, this card runs silent! And I'm used to the silentness of the my 9600 GT gigabyte passive cool.

Those huge heatsink and 2 92mm fan runs great. Just make sure you use expert tool to lower the fan to the lowest setting (30%). Its great.

O yea, my HR-GTX 03 should arrive today and I'll replace the HSF when i've done some benchmark with the factory cooling (factory and overclock benchmark).

Benchmark: 3D mark Vantage & 06

Also, here are some games I'm going to benchmark:

Crysis Warhead
Crysis (possibly if I have time to install it)
COD 5
Left 4 Dead <--- don't really understand why because my old 9600GT kills it.. but its a request.. lol

Will only do if there is an interest in these games:
Assassin's Creed
Team Fortress 2
World in Conflict


More to come hopefully tomorrow if not Thursday
