Hello guys, was wondering has anyone got this XFX 4890HD?

And if so, what kind of overclocking results you have got so far? Ordered 2 of these cards for Crossfire, since my 280GTX died :<. Have been reading some mixed up opinions about this new design, so wanted to ask what you guys think :).

The bad part about them is they dont have any cooling on the VRMs - one of the biggest issues with these cards. Im not sure if the mounting holes for the heatsink are at the refrence spec or not. Mine are 53mm apart from side to side (not criss cross). If you purchase a better cooler you may see some better overclocks.
What are your temps like now? Be careful not to overvolt too much with naked VRM's. You should be able to see 900-930 on the core without much issue.
