Thanks again Worship..
By the by, that CPU fan you recommended the "big typhoon" by Thermaltake dropped my CPU temp by ~10C..I am idle at ~40C for my CPU/MOBO..on that note the fan speed knob doesn't work..yet..and it roars as loud as my oven fan.
The P5Q-e came with such a nice utility program, one that will most definitely serve great purpose in my first trials with overclocking.
The HD 4870 is so slick, I've decided not to keep the 2nd one ( I think .. :P ) and just keep it at one card at the moment..such a large card..hot as anything.
Aside from that, I'd have to discourage anyone from ever picking up this case:
Poor craftsmanship, I hate their 'tooless design': the card bay has a lever rather than an individual screw for each expansion slot. IT SUCKS ! The teeth on the lever do not take large cards into account..the HD 4870 doesn't nestle nicely in there, it's a squeeze. The 'tooless' drivebays took the longest to install out of the entire build...such a pain in the ass. It brags about it's 36cm side fan..though these temperatures are nothing impressive for what they boast. Side panels are flimsy and a real hassle to remove/replace.
SO DON'T GET IT.
It's going to be a pain to dismantle, but I am going to refund the case.
Thanks for everyone's help, wish me luck in not frying my mobo!

Oh, yes I was.
Make sure you install the 8.6 drivers AND the hotfix. Have fun
Oh and to add a question: Where are you seeing driver support for the 4870? Their site doesn't even list it..
Ahh it came with v8.6 and I just found the hotfix, thank you!
