    To be honest with you, I doubt two watercooled cards will give me the same performance as three stock cards, no matter how much I OC them even using WC :)

    Pressure...sort of.
    The gauge is really about useless in that range...the PSU tops out at 2.3 or so and the gauge is actually on the wrong side of the flow to get a proper reading. The gauge is only about $15 from McMaster. The real way to get a reading is to have a much smaller tube off a T at the end of the T and position that T so the pump is pounding that little tube like a guy that just got of jail pounds his first piece of freedom tail. Then you'll get a true constant reading of the pump output.

    Thanks Mate,
    I was going to water cool 570's with Koolance blocks I just got but decided to keep this case on air.
    Such a good air case - but with just a bit more mod - opions for 360 rad up front, 280 in roof and 240 at rear - potential for a super water case too.

    Australian eBay Deal.
    Seller had O'Clocked & NON reference 580 cards so and blocks didn't fit :banghead:
    New & never used - 2 of them not even taken out of packaging, she realized problem - but couldn't return the blocks.
    They were sold as a lot of three - so "highish" starting price put everyone else off.
    I got all three inc postage for under $240 AUD.
    Considering some are asking over $150 each (in Australia) not sure about elsewhere what prices are - I think I got bargain of the year anyway. :D

    Dunno, haven't checked :p the only game that doesn't run smoothly is the Witcher 2 when I enable uber sampling, but other than that, all other games run smoothly :)

    very nice looking setup,how do you find the crossfire works?? with gaming etc,im thinking of buying nother 6850 and doing the same,is it overkill and do you get micro-stuttering as ive heard can happen?ps whats the cpu cooler,looks different to most?

    Crossfire will usually run nearly flawlessly except for occasional stuttering but nothing major, also whether or not is is overkill depends on how you define overkill really.

    He is using a CoolerMaster V10 cooler btw.
