Awesome looking cards. If it wasn't for the sound of all 3, it's a shame to watercool them, they look that good. I just love the polished alloy look.

Yeah, they do look fantastic.

What i have noticed while i am currently benchmarking these is how much more smooth they are over my 6970s. For example in unigine heaven on my 6970s when the framerate would dip low i would notice a lot of microstutter. While on the 7970s at low fps there is no noticable micro stutter at all. Very impressive.

Your ketteh has red radeon eyes- what brand of ATi is she?

Epic setup Roadie, even more epic when on water.

Would I be foolish to assume you plan on overclocking those cards once you have your waterblocks?

The cat is actually powered by evil and hate, not by ATI.

Yeah, I will overclock when on water, they are way too loud and hot to overclock on air for now.


Anyways, just ran the BF3 benchmark. So much for crossfire not working... It actually works amazingly and the results blew my mind. Still going to finish the rest of my benchmarks before posting results.

I hope you benched the 6970's first, so we can compare the results.
