Talking New Monitor

Just try it? Come on, surely you can rig something up and put wheels on it. Just think of the cooling potential,hehe.

With that kind of power, putting a fistful of cards together would be NP. I think you might have to cushion them from bumps in the road. An inverter, you're all set. Monitor would be tricky though.

Ended up going core i7 to get space in between the cards where I'll have a fan blowing air between them. I'll be assembling this rig shortly and would appreciate the heads up.
My case has a 140 mm fan blowing cool air into the cards intake fans, it seems to do the job, then again the 5970's are hotter running cards. my GPU's idle at 37C at under load never get above 78C

I never noticed the fan 'til I shifted the pic. Sounds like that's the way to go. Thanks

Edit:Heck, I'll be happy to pay for something if the ladies deliver it,hehe. Seriously, that was downright awesome of XFX to donate those cards. Yeah, I couldn't get sound from my HDMI. What did they do?. Sent me a cable to connect the card to the board, just like that. Kudos to XFX!!!

The way that you have your H50 is gonna hurt your temps. Put it at the back of the PC with the fan working as INTAKE.

Unless the pics are hiding something. LOL!

Nice build!!!!
