    Got all of the rads a while back. Did crazy good as a single GPU/CPU look idle and load temps were pretty similar. I spent the extra money back in the day so the main parts of the loop would never need upgrading. Even with a multi CPU/GPU setup I will never need more radiator surface area.

    Looking for a 2nd 480 if anyone knows where to find one. Can't get any more up here now. If not, I've got a brand new 480 for sale. Unless I can find a 670/680 for half off on black friday....

    I saw that, but water cooling is beyond my budget. I could of got this 2nd 480 on sale for $179can brand new, but all sold out now. So now I'm on a saving/selling spree for the next month or so until I can get a 680, the only way I can get 2x 480 performance now. I guess 2 months of not eating is worth it.... Going to try to keep the 480 for my folding box, lots of ppd! For now I'll install the latest beta driver and see what this 480 can do!

    On eBay stuff sells for way to high, I sold a 5870 for like $270 on eBay a little while back... There are a few 480's for sale over at OCN.

    Ebay's not really convenient, takes 9 days for me to send funds to paypal for one. I also notice most of those cards are from the us, will go through customs, and have upto $60 shipping. I think I'll wait for the the 6pm black friday sales to start at ncix, and see if I can snag a 670 for dirt cheap. If not, then I guess I'm back to hunting down a 2nd 480!

    Those cards will go a lot further. If you are looking for a good cooler for it I have a V3000F up for sale ;)

    Ah, new members, will add.
    Getting bummed out, seems I'm in the minority with a single card! Really wish I could find a 2nd 480....
    Updated again!

    10 mins to black friday... also, ncix finally notified me and said if I had just ordered the last 480 on sale, they would of held it for me. Nice hindsight!

    Seriously miffed, ncix's idea of black friday prices is 350 for a 670. That's almost 400 delivered. I live on 475 total a month after rent. Grrrrr.....

    Darn, stellar vram performance, but can't believe only half the texture fillrate of a 660ti:
    My current gaming stable settings. I might be able to up the vram speed more, haven't tried.

    Necro! Finally adding a 2nd 480, (yes it took me this friggin long to get one) hoping it will match a 680 in performance. Must be some out there like me who are poor, and starting to sli these things because they are cheap! Anyone else out there brave enough to run 2 of these things? I'm waiting to see smoke come out of my 850w Silverstone.... I'll post benchies when I get it.

    Till be right about 680 performance, but consume about 400w more at the same time, and run way hotter, and louder.

    Oh, I'm painfully aware of that. But for an investment of under 300can, guess I'll make do....
