My first impressions. GTX 280 Tri-SLi ( Pic. )
 
Initially, I am impressed. I see dramatic performance increases at 2560x1600 in Age of Conan, even with 4x AA enabled. =)

I recommend putting a high-speed Yate Loon on the side of your case, and/or, multiple Yate Loon fans. They move a lot of air and will allow you to maintain stability.

They don't get too hot, I suppose it's due to the high-speed fan blowing directly on it.

I will post more soon.

Finally we'll see some 2560x1600 results :D. What's the rest of your specs?

Very nice indeed.

A question though, why didn't you can get the water-blocked versions either from Evga or BFG? They should drop the temps a lot more. Not to mention the BFG one is single slot so you can stick a sound card in there as well. :)

Any idea why EVGA doesn't make their watercooled cards single slot? BFG card = :drooling: I know you can buy single slot PCI brackets yourself but still..

I have a sound card. It's in my PCI-1x slot, above the main video adapter. Also, I will be water cooling them. I just prefer higher quality blocks, from danger den, or EK. I'm not going to use EVGA blocks.
