    I'm pretty sure there is, unless I misread what that overclocker said when he posted up the Ares.

    Where can I preorder? AND, will this mean, in a crossfire setup, I can theoretically connect 12 monitors and have the gaming station from hell? THIS is awesome, and I'll put my regular 2 Sapphire OC edition 5970 up forsale right away!

    When I win lotto this friday I will buy myself two of these + six nice 24" screens.

    And because I'm a nice guy I will buy one for each of the people in this thread already.

    You can thank me later.

    Yeah but it would be better to get 4 5870 6-eyefinity style, then 24 screens.

    Also yes its true that you can do that, you can search for videos of 24 screen eyefinity.

    Cooling doesn't seem to be a problem... using my Lian-Li PC-A17B as an example:

    But seriously, they will "end" somewhere in the drive cage. Just flip my front 120mm (also add the Lian-Li 140mm rear extractor), and along with some nice temps, will have a wire-hide for the PCIe connectors ;)
     
    Kantastic, jaredpace and MKmods say thanks.

    You know what's funny? The Corsair Obsidian 800D is about $300 after tax/shipping (if applicable). :D

    Could be interesting but I was never a fan of XFX and there own ideas (revisions)

    Id like to see a battle between the other manufactures and see who wins :D

    Similar to Asus' but Asus is using 2 5870s Oc'd for theirs where I think Sapphire and XFX are using the 5970 OC'd with 4 GB of Video memory.

    I don't know what you are talking about on this one :p
    The 5970 are make of the exact same chips (if not even higher binned ones) as two 5870s.

    AMD actually hints that the 5970 are made from the best Cypress XT (5870) chips.
    Asus got you on that one mate. :laugh:
    It is 120% marketing BS from Asus.
