    That Noctua D-12 is a freakin huge cooler and works like a charm....but man is it ugly!!! Excellent cooler for a very nice test setup though. :toast: That Sapphire looks sooo sexy too..only makes me want mine sooner!

    I considered the N-12 for my next build but opted for the louder yet more aesthetically pleasing (not to mention better clearance for RAM heat spreaders) CPNS9900 Max Red LED. Going for 2 HD 7970's (Sapphire just like the one you're got) on a Asus ROG board with the HAF 932 Advanced case. Should look awesome. :)

    Got my 680s today:

    Here are the box contents, there was also a poster included but it was too big for this picture :p

    [​IMG]

    Out with the old, in with the new:

    [​IMG]

    The cards installed in my rig:

    [​IMG]

    All lighted up and ready to go, had to do a small modification to the VGA air duct to fit the new PCI-E connectors, nothing my trusty dremel couldn't handle :)

    [​IMG]

    Skyrim at 5760x1080 with 3D vision surround, right off the bat I can tell the game runs much smoother and any micro stutter from my previous setup with the 580s is completely gone, running at Ultra settings, 120Hz 3D, 16x AF, 2x FSAA and FXAA enabled through the control panel:

    [​IMG]

    I hope you guys liked it, I'm waiting for more availability for the 680 to get a 3rd card in the near future :)

    EDIT: Special thanks to jhonnyfiive, I could've not got my cards without his help! Thank you mate, I owe you one :toast:

    Thanks mate! :rockout:

    I had gone to bed already, was very tired today, but I woke in the middle of the night, I guess I was kinda anxious to try the new cards :p

    Too bad tomorrow I get in at 7:30AM, nothing worse than hardware hangover the next morning, better go back to bed, it's 2:30AM already :toast:

    Know what, I almost purchased a couple 7970s a couple of months ago, it's a very fast card and trades punches with my cards at the resolution I play, the only problem is my monitors aren't supported by the 7970 for 3D unless I use HDMI, then I would have to run at 24Hz due to 1.4 spec limitations :(

    Little bit of a preview
    [​IMG]

    Anyone know where I could get a little adapter to go from that large USB 3.0 header to 2.0? If I could get one of those I could utilize all 4 USB ports on this Switch. I can't right now, since half are USB 3.0 and my motherboard is old sauce.

    That case is badass! Nice joe! Very clean looking man!
    If I ever go back to a case setup, that is THE case I plan to go with, so many options available in the Switch.

    Nice setup there man. Looks great and im jelly! :laugh:

    Still though, you dont need that 580 in there as Physx as the two 680's will handle it fine. That 580 is there sucking up energy for no real reason at all. Read my previous post in regards to your physx link you gave me.

    Yes, I agree with you, I think I'll take that 580 out, not only the minuscle alleged performance gain is not worth the cost in power use and temp increase, but it also looks out of place and messy, thank you for your suggestion ;)

    Thanks for the comments, I appreciate it :rockout:

    I don't think I'll sell them yet, I've been think and I decided I'll trade my 480s for a couple 680s using the step up program from EVGA once they are available, and keep my 580s for the HTPCs, thanks for asking though :)

    I just did :) updated on their respective threads:

    Vantage no PhysX: 54049
    Vantage PhysX: 64032
    3DMark 11: 17879

    Hope that helps :)
