    I was just joking, don't get angry man, i'm really impressed of the rig you'll get with the components you're thinking on, i'm excited too to see the results as soon as possible cause for me it's impossible to afford one of that rigs right now and maybe ever, so i'm feeling "healthy envy" to see how fast that bitch is going to be ... i let that serious business to all of you ;) but i'm agree with fitseries3 that LN2 will be required if you plan to OC it to 6Ghz, it will be so much potence to dissipate and i don't know if the Vapochill can get you to that temps, it will only bring you a cathode -60ºC/-66ºC and at full load at 6Ghz maybe you'll get positive ones ... which you don't want, so i think LN2 is required, at least for the CPU, it boils at -196ºC and can bring you a cathode of almost -150ºC which will be ideal for maintaining your 6Ghz on the air.

    Identical drives when doing RAID 0. Buy an identical Raptor. What's with the TPU 'sponsored' part?

    Just a note I have several friends with tri SLI and all of them sold their stuff and went with ATI.

    Has anyone tried 3 3870X2s yet?

    LOL, they only have 4 pin for the cpu and MSI dropped support for the 125watt CPUs...What kind of idiot makes a board for 4 GPUs and than dosent have the power to run a X2 6400 stock, let alone OCd? (stupid MSI)

    I honestly don't think it's a good idea, but i'm sure it will be fun as hell to try

    I'm sorry, but he's right here. The vapochill can't touch LN2 cooling. I was looking into setting up a more extreme rig, to attack the single 8800GT record, and cpu phase crossed my mind, but it just doesn't have the thermal capacity to keep up with extreme voltage and OCs on a quad. My only other option is to get LN2 pots, but I don't have the time, money or the work space to devote to that yet. Those F1 pots are a sight to behold tho. Perhaps next year at tax time. *sigh*

    You're right.... I'm sure I cannot go above them without using L2N BUT! I know that I have edited my challange and it is to beat all other systems that are using anything but in a case and well looking, these people that score 30,000 are all just having parts around not actually organized that's another part of my challange that I am currently adding because I COULD go L2N but I don't want that I want this to be a rig in a house not some GIANT thing laying around on a table smoking L2N out of it..

    Fair enough. Kinda going for the fastest "usable" or 24/7 rig? Sounds reasonable. Then phase, or some really powerful TEC, is the way to go.

    For phase change, look into Vapoli. Way better than the Vapochill. They're custom built to order. He can either make them performs slightly better than the Vapochill, at a lower db, or he can build them to be louder, but wipe the floor with the Vapochill. He can even build it right into a Lian Li pc case, for a total stealth install.

    It's going to be 24/7 stable that anyone can make

    I highly doubt sponsoring would happen, It's rather pointless. However everyone here is hapy to give advice.
    For example for 3Dmark > ATI. 2 3870x2's on Z7S/Skulltrail for example.
