Wow, I just want to say, that I really did not expect this. I did know it would run GTX's in SLI, but even at that overclock? Man, I can't even begin to say how impressive that is. :wtf:

Just did a quick overclock to my former single card max clocks, now in SLI. Runs great.

Quick 3DMark06 run, 18k. :D

Been playing UT3 now for a little while, and it holds up beautifully.

Got any way of measuring the power draw? (I'd estimate your hitting roughly something in the vicinity of 400W total). The HX620W has lots of juice to give on the 12V rail though, so it should hold up fine.

No, I don't unfortunately. :o Sorry bout that. Yea, it's got some crazy power on the 12v+.

I'm utterly impressed. Wooohooo :D

Excellent news since I'm staring at the same PSU as I write this.

According to this, a 3.5 GHz QX6700 (B3) and 2x8800GTXs in SLI draw 442W DC. So you're probably around there, seeing as you have a G0 Q6600 @ 3.6 GHz. That leaves about 180W to spare.

Thank you for that link, that is indeed very peculiar. I always thought the wattage is a bit overrated, but perhaps it's just because this is a single rail PSU? :)

Just completed a 1,5Hr ATI Tool run at 612/1513Mhz, no artifacts. I'll use this as my everyday settings. :)

Oh, I totally forgot to mention, I have 7 120mm fans in my rig too. :D
