I'll put some pics up for you guys when I get it. Not sure when that'll be though, could be a few weeks depending on how they ship the card.
It won't be as interesting as the 5870 obviously, seeing as that has the winners design on it, but I think it'll be nice to do so anyway. :mrgreen:

Update for the top two winners from AMD:

Seems like the 2nd prize winner will have their prize ship out tomorrow and I’ll provide tracking number when I have it. The 1st prize winners got pushed out as the launch of the iCooler design got pushed out as well (going to be end of February sometime).

The actual card. It's got the nice black heat-sink and blue fan. I assume it illuminates blue when it's on.

A closer look. This card omits the second DVI port, not that I'd ever use it.

I don't have any pictures of it in my actual computer yet. Now I've got a nice shiny new graphics card I have to upgrade the rest of my rig. :rolleyes:
So it's going to be sitting in the box for a little while longer until I figure out the rest of my parts. I might have to throw in a second 5770 once I get a bigger monitor :mrgreen:.
I'll upgrade the basics first though.

Thank you so very much for posting pictures! Glad the card safely arrived! Interesting how they included HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI. The heat sink is none reference that is for sure. I haven't used that one, but it looks really nice. Congrats!

What Graphics?? You do know it's just black with a blue fan right? This is the 2nd place winner, not the 1st who gets THEIR winning design printed.

Maybe I'm just not understanding your question?
