  • Real time display of power consumption.
  • Four sensors for temperature monitoring and display.
  • Monitoring and control of one PWM fan and three standard fans.
  • Alarm system to notify non-operation of any of the fans.
  • Fan’s operation status indicated with animated propeller images.

http://www.zalman.co.kr/ENG/product/Product_Read.asp?idx=209


Some people have complained about the display, because you can't read the values if you look at it from an angle, but I don't have any problem with that, it controls the speed from some of the fans and it shows the power consumption. Unfortunately one of my temp sensors does not display the correct temperature, it is -17 degrees Celsius off but besides that I'm quite happy with it and it does is job plus it's very stylish which gives the case a nice touch up:D

It'd be a good fight but until Fits gets his Fermi's then I think mdsx has the better 'overall' system.

Sometimes stacking a system like that is just setting yourself up for depreciation. Its not like dual 5970's are useful. A single 5970 performs roughly the same. ATi scaling above 2 GPU's is quite poor. 980X makes more sense though for many applications.

Dual 5970s would mainly be for benchmarks, not gaming. A lot of reviews show 2x5970s performing worse than a single in real world benches... and when they do help they add like 3-5 FPS. They just choke each other up. Better option would be to get a single one, give it nuts cooling and overclock it.

Any idea who has the current worst?

I have a Pavillion in my closet with a 1.3GHz Athlon, 40GB IDE HDD, CD Drive, 150W PSU, and 512MB SDRAM. But, since it's by no means my primary machine I doubt it could participate.
