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

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.

Question

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