    I have noticed that PSU someday use to suck air from the bottom i wouldn't do that, you don't want to have dust in your box, just turn around and left the vent to be on the upper side, and even with two screws will be ok, if the box don't allow it. Even vent will last longer because of that.

    Oh, my 920 does 4.2ghz at 1.29v, and 4.4ghz at 1.40, HT on...with air cooling. On DICE, got it up to 4.9ghz at 1.52v but got shut down with a base clock wall at 233 on this UD3R.

    Tip with the killer, turn off the charts. Makes the menu laggy and establishes an annoying constant connection with an amazon cloud server.

    Not really. Any card with the same or more power is going to scale almost the same, regardless of maker or series.

    Lower powered cards will scale better because they are overwhelmed easier. And even tho they scale better, the higher powered cards perform better.

    Nope. Don't scale any better at resolutions that make sense for mutli card setups.

    Oh im not forsure on this. You probably know more about it than i do. Your current cards are a 58xx series right? I've just heard that the 68xx series scale amazing and what not. I know my 8800gts sli doesn't scale all that well :p

    It depends heavily on the resolution too. The higher the resolution, the better the scaling. Low resolutions don't scale well because the cards run out of work. It just isn't demanding enough.

    True true. If you don't need to upgrade then don't upgrade :p It's your money but seem's like you don't mind spending it on comps with a 980x hehe. I know i need to upgrade my 8800's but lack of funds doesn't allow me too :eek:

    Hell, my 4870X2 is outclassed in many of the new games. I splurged on the 980X at tax return time, because I do a lot of encoding, and it saved me a shitton of encoding time. This tax return will be a video card and SSD. Without tax returns, I'd still be on my 8800GTs and Q6600. I know the feeling of broke, I have 3 kids. lol.

    he goes the same way as me,in this case... cheap watercooled power.... without water, these X2s are much like fermis, but with water, they are awesome for the prize they cost ;)

    As I recall people were raving about the 69xx card scaling, never saw a real % comparison though.

    On another note, that circle is pretty bright. It'd be distracting if I hadn't angled it away.

    Got sick of bleeding air from my loop. So I done a little moving around and added the 5970 XSPC waterblock. Need to get me another res now and move that pump and hook up the other RAD.
