Reading the Legit Reviews thinger, quite hot indeed. And extremely noisy.

However, given the benchmarks, it would also be extremely fast

I am quite interested to see what DB comes up with on his water-cooled setup he is working on.

Can't wait to see the pics

Any idea when we might see that Asus Rampage III in the market ? I'm sure your getting a before market one but I have been reading every review I can find and I am just trying to stay patient.

Enjoy

Dummy here is going to try triple HD 5870 Crossfire X in an EVGA X58 mobo. I've already got one HD 5870 and have had it for a while.

Default Re: Fermi icandy the Tri Sli way

currently have my 920 + tri-sli 285gtx's on the evga x58 w/nb block connected in series to 2 quad fesser radiators on one d5 pump and single in/out magicool reservoir. Will do the same with future tri fermi 480s. I previously had 2 seperate loops running with 2 pumps and 2 reservoirs but it was so inneficient. the cpu had too much radiator and the 3 cards had too little radiator (the one feeding the cards would get too hot especially when playing crysis + other heavy gpu games. this would also hasten coolant evaporation. connected both in series and problem solved. the cpu is a little bit warmer but didn't affect my overclocking. I also have a small vent hose connected directly from the radiators to the window to extract the hot air directly outside so my bedroom doesn't become a sauna. aint nothing like watercooling. everything stays nice and cool, little noise (if you use hq low rpm fans), and very little dust buildup in case. can't wait for the asus 27" 120hz panels to come out for some 3dvision surround!!!!!!!!!

forgot to mention.........pretty much 40-45C across the board on all 4 major components. single cpu + 3 gpus compared to say 80-90c if the gpus were running on air. I also don't have to worry about the gpu fans not working correctly because of the driver. I also understand the driver throttles the speed of the card in relation to its temperature. no thanks. I want 100% performance all the way baby. what's the point people. watercool, especially now with these hotter fermi's, especially if you are going sli.
