    Indeed, I am waiting for some tips on how to use this baby, there are so many OCing features on the board I have barely any idea on what they do or what they're good for. So far only Eastune is able to read my board's CPU Vcore though lol.

    AIDA64 is usually pretty reliable. If it doesn't work, I submit a report to them, and they usually get it working pretty quickly(usually within a couple of days). One of my most favorite testing apps, really; if you don't have a copy, you should get one. It's also the suggested method for stability testing IvyBridge right now(but I'm persoinally still using all the regular ones too).


    That BIOS I'm pretty familiar with now, used at least a couple of products with it ;). Lots of options, but most you don't need to worry about. Manually set vDIMM, vCPU, and IMC voltages and use Turbo multis to overclock. It's really that simple, the board will take care of the rest.

    Anyway, thanks for the cool pics.

    On full load, if I disconnect the vents, this can heat my house.

    It's gotta go because of the noise(VERY loud) and I failed to take into account tiered electricity costs... $390 bills are no fun!

    I believe you. Was afraid it was loud, and not surprised about the bill. They all have to be sucking a lot juice. :eek:

    Perhaps you can keep one or two in some smaller enclosures. :D

    I hate to see some of these cards hanging at an angle because they have nothing to get secured into other than the PCI-E slot. Crazy setup though, have you ever considered just using 4U rack chassis?

    Depending on the GPU's, I would have thought a triple rad was a little bit on the small side for cooling. Maybe you could look into a bigger rad? or have more than one rad/loop? Or keep the H70 for the CPU and run the custom loop on the GPU's only.

    Enjoy the WCing mate :) You will love it.
