My System Specs

Default

so avoiding the hard work and finishing the loose ends on the project I stress tested it as a messy Frankenstein and I'm pretty impressed. 2 hours of unigine's Heaven benchmark had the CPU at 38c and all three GPUs at 47c with all fans on low and very quiet operation. This thing was so quiet that the ambient household noise, mainly the furnace running, was louder than the computer. I turned the fans on high and the system stabilized with the GPUs at 42c but the sound level wasn't as appealing. I think it should be perfect on low.

Feeling around for hotspots though I found the corsair dominator memory gets a little hot and the fin cooling on the nf200 chip gets quite warm, but the VRMs are nice and cool.
