This thing is huge! I mean, really huge! I had to re-route a lot of cables inside my CM Stacker to make it fit :P

First impressions are

Crysis looks awesome with DX10 at 1920x1200

Every game I've thrown at it it just chews out :P

The only weird thing I've noticed is coil whine during the Crysis intro videos... No whining during actual gameplay on any game I've tried thankfully.

But the coil whine during the intro videos is very, very audible and it nearly gave me a heart-attack...

I've googled about this and it seems its quite common. But why does this happen with Crysis intro videos only???
Dude that had me going as well at first ... (with 2 285's ) . For a moment i thought that my psu's were going to explode or something. But then i figured, the 285 does not consume more power then the 8800 GTX right ?

And about the AA in Crysis... I must be blind or something , but at 2056 res i really find it hard to notice a difference . I mean i see it, but i'll take the 100 fps over the 50 fps myself .

However, there is absolutely NO difference in frame rates between 8x and 16 x AA . Is this normal ?
