Nice build!!!!
My Temps seem to be pretty fine, actually. Idles at 30C, and never gets above 62C under load.

is that with the automatic fan profile or is it custom fan speed?

I'll be damned if you simply emailed XFX to sponsor you for a build and they sent you 3x5870's lol

Please post some Bench runs comparing Cross Fire 5870's and Tri Fire 5870's.....I'm curious as to the scaling of 2 vs 3 5870's and compare that to scaling of Sli 480's vs Tri Sli 480's .....
