This will work on the GX2, as in there is enough room, yes? Anyone have one?

It might work if you can figure out how to attach the middle core to the block.

I guess this will work if you have only one 7950GX2. The block looks thin enough to fit between the PCB.

However, for QUAD-SLI you would have room for two of this in a convential case.

Looks like a lot of trouble for not much gain.

I game at only 1600x, so quad SLi is a huge waste for me. I may give the Tidewater plus a whirl down the line. I am in the process of making my conroe ready rig, which the 7950 GX2 will be part of. I ordered a black antec P180 to put it all in. Hope I like that case.

I have the steel finish P180 and it is a great case, I think that you'll be happy with it.

My biggest issue with it was fact that I have two GPU's and I put my hard drives in the bottom. I don't know if they've changed this since I got my P180, but there's not enough holes to easily run cabling through if you've got two GPU's because the one of the GPU's covers up a lot of the cabling hole from the bottom, which is where the power supply goes as well.

Don't worry, it can be done, but this is not a great case if you are a neat freak with wiring, which I'm not.
