Did XFX give you all three for free?! That's some nice GPU Power.

New Builds
 
Looks great. What I'd like to know is how you're keeping all the cards cool enough. I have 2 5970s that sat that close together and the 1 card hit 101c while benching. I even briefly considered wc. 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.
:whistle:

Looks like my build but I have a different case and 1 less 5870...very nice, love the blue lighting too!

Why would they give it to you for free? Even reviewers have to return it.
