    I've purchased 2 Sapphire GTO2's for other people & also one for myself - all three have come out of the box with 16 pipe's unlocked & will overclock very close to X850XT PE speeds with no additional cooling.

    Other than the SM3 question....I think the GTO2 is an outstanding deal

    also, the one i got had no PCI-E power connector. could this be why it overclocks badly? the earlier cards were supposed to be extremely overclockable.

    If it is not too late to send it back, do so now. You really should have gotten a 6800GS and it is a far superior card to the X800. The 6800GS is highly underrated and higly overlooked. Anyone that doubts their power, I can easily outscore a single 7800GTX/X1800XT with my 6800GS SLI setup. Best bargain on the planet, hands down. If you think I am wrong, show me scores. I guarantee can beat any and all 7800GTX/X1800's.

    no i can't send it back- its already been flashed, overclocked, modded, the rest, and its too old anyway.
    im not complaining that much - its quite good, and anyway, why do you push the gs so much? its barely better than a 6800gt, cause of 4 less pipelines, and the clocks have to be aggressive. as well as that, even a x800xl is supposed to pass a stock gt in games, and mine is slightly better than that.

    I push it so much because for the cost, it far outclocks and outperforms any card in it's class. It is also more future proof with SM3 and the option of getting another for SLI. Right now, they are down to $170US or cheaper on Newegg, and once they hit the $140-150 mark apiece, getting two is a no brainer. I have had 7800GTX's in SLI and in single. THey take too much CPU to really get the benefits. But these cards are able to push their limits with a "normal" CPU overclocked to "normal" levels. And these cards are MUCH better than the GT/Ultra models as they overclock much further. I just like getting the maximum value for my dollar.
