Those cards are just monstrous. Are they heavy too, or do they just look that way?
not as heavy as a gtx480... really not that heavy at all. think it is even lighter than a reference 6950/70. the one i had was a tank
Yeah the reference 6-series are bricks in size and weight, but my XFX 6950, non reference, must be 1/3rd the weight of the sapphire card. But it has a really crappy cooler.
I love those heatspreaders. Sexy!
My test bench. MSI X79A-GD65 8D, I7 3960X, 16GB RipJawsZ 1600Mhz, Thermaltake Grand 1050W, Agility 3 240GB SSD, and in this picture three HD7950s - one from GB, one from XFX and one from Sapphire
Steel Series 7H Fnatic edition? Those look SICK!
Just got 3 TFC Triebwerk TK123 V2 for pull on my lower 360 radiator.
how does that Intel WaterCooler perform? ^^
i have that same power meter! bwahahahaha
Not bad actually, it's kinda the same unit that asetek supply for the antec khuler 620.
CPU is overclocked to 4.2Ghz for benchmarks, with this system 4.7Ghz is achievable.
How many reviewers are running "water" on their X79, would you say?
idk, one thing i know is that the fan is running ultra quite at 12.5% and that's my goal here.
Wouldn't that blow the heat from the radiator over the components (assuming it is the radiator what I see at the bottom of the pic)? I am not knowing anything about WC so I am a bit curious about that.
The small amount of heat should be no issue. Sure it's warm air, if the fans blow the right way, but at the same time, the components are far cooler to begin with, thanks to the water cooling, negating that form being an issue. Now, for aircooled rigs, yes, having warm air flowing over them is bad, as they wil luse that warm air to cool. But watercooled rigs don't realyl use the air in the same way...
The fans are actually helping cool off the MB,RAM, and video card. System is running great with this configuration.
Also I have 2 Scythe Kaze 3000 38mm on top blow hole Radiator in push/pull. It's alot of air moving through the case.
Side ways push pull with these fans in a case that would support it would be ultimate cooling. That would put the hot air out of the case and then put some other fans on MB area too cool.
I'm happy with what I have right now.
wow thats schmexy!
Where does one purchase these fans my man?
And hows your rig running without any power connections to the GPU? Looks like the fans are running but looks umm well.....ya know
