My System Specs

Default GTX 580SC Tri SLi Madness :)

Anyhow, got home form work today and got my back plate / HFA Bracket on my 3rd 580 for a little Tri SLi foolishness......some results....was really hoping to hit P60K....close but not quite ;)

Vantage at 4.5 Ghz, other Benches at 4.1 Ghz.....3 x GPU's @ 900 / 2100...

''









Everything Cranked @ 2560 x 1440:

JC2 - Avg 69.87 FPS
Mafia II Avg 47 FPS
Batman AA 108 FPS
Crysis Very High - 16xQ = 80 - 110 FPS

Max Temps was running Heaven:
GPU #1 - 72C
GPU #2 - 80C
GPU #3 - 68C


Very cool.... ;)

Because I change HW every few months....WC would be an absolute pita ;)

No idea Dan.....figure around 1000 - 1100 under load maybe?..the vantage run was 980X @ 4.53 Ghz and all 580's at 900 / 2100....perhaps I'll invest in a Meter and check it....

I wouldn't say it's a given as most "enthusiast's" don't give a shit.

If we are willing to buy that kind of hardware we can afford to pay the power bill that comes with it, lol.

Great little setup there bob, surprised at the shiny case in todays world though! So shinnny!

well, if your psu can do 1200 watts max,for exemple, and youre pulling 1350 from the wall, what does that mean? :)

one of the best things with the said tool is to watch the number when yo uclock. when you see a bigger jump from the previous? youre getting near

Insane Machine, Do you really notice the 3rd card much, its incredible if they have gotten close to decent scaling with 3 cards already.
