friggin hot here this past few days..getting around 30c outside and way warmer in my Office upstairs.....the ole OC on my CPU and Tri Sli are certainly running in tandom with this warm room...

Cheers guys!...oh..and happy belated Canada Day!!
I see the VISA was maxed out eh, lol.

The 2 I like, its the flash off the aluminum thats kills the other photos if you could just get enough light in there they'd be great shots. Got a lamp or 2 kicking around?

Seriously whats up with BC this year stealing all Ontario's weather, we get all the rain and mild temperatures for the summer. I want my hot, humid, hazy, smog advisory, make the garbarge smell (because there is a strike on) worse Toronto like weather back. Well fall/winter is just around the corner soon enough will all be complaining just how cold it is and how much snow has fallen where it never fell before.

Part of me would like to try that but the other part of me can't stand the heat coming out of just two 260's...I could bake cookies with Tri SLI.

So one of the 280 cards is run off the PCI-E to molex adapters, correct? Or does that PSU actually have 3 sets of PCI-E power cords?

3 x 6 Pin n 3 x 8 Pin....no adaptors at all...

Yes..3 sets of PCI-E (6+2) connectors, however, with the 3rd 280 plugged in I can only plug one EPS 8 Pin 12V connector to the Classified Board...but my mild OC doesn't require the 2nd EPS 12v connector anyhow......here is the HC Review of the Corsair HX 1kW...

Corsair HX1000W Power Supply Review

However, I'm thinking of eventually going with the Zeus 1.2 kW (thanks for srtting me straight Chilly)..
