My System Specs

Default 2550K 3-way SLI

Just finished upgrading my system from a P55 UD7 + 875K to P67 FTW + 2550K. (Fun Fact: Both boards are the ones featured in reviews for HWC!)

So far (only tested for 20mins) stable at 4.99GHz, multiplier doesn't like going above 50x but I haven't tinkered too much with it yet.

System specs:

i5 2550K @ 5GHz 1.46V 38C Idle 66C Load
P67 FTW
16GB Vengeance 1600
GTX 470 3-way SLI 35C Idle 55C Load
120GB SSDs RAID0
1TB Blacks RADI0
HX1000 PSU
XSPC Blocks
EK Fittings

That's a lovely build you've got there. How do the triple 470s perform?

Piderman: I'm using refurb'd Corsair F120's (Sandforce)

KaptCrunch: XSPC 360 and 240 (slim) with 10 GELID fans, 5 UV Blue and 5 UV Blue PWM w/LED

GT7R: Not quite sure yet. So far not much better than dual cards though. Scored H35000 on Vantage.

I like how you plumbed in the video card waterblocks. I wish I had seen this before i had water-cooled my 3 470's with universal vga blocks a while back. The way you did it is much better. Nice clean build .

Default 3-card vs 2-card performance

Does the board support full, simultaneous x16 for all three PCIe slots?

No, x8 for all 3 if I understand the NF200 setup correctly.

3 x GTX470s have a Loop of GPU power but if you pass 1080p Mark the memory will kill them.
