I donno, I don't run 3dmark.

That being said I run it at 2560x1600 and I crank the AA and AF up, so cpu limitiations are moot at that level of resolution, and etc.

Nice 4.8 on a Q what kind of cooler setup are you using. I ask cause I am going for the 4.0 and higher and am hunting for a setup that will handle it.

Is your 8-pin running underneath the cards? Why didn't I think of that!

Looks pretty slick nice wire ties action. I think the only improvements would involve making some extra holes to route cables through but then again I dont have this case nor have I used it in any builds..so I dont know but I think it looks pretty tight.

I saw someone else to that too, and I emulated a good idea! I did tie mine up and away from the HSF but I see CG has no such problem. Very nice job too.
