CHILLED TRI SLI 480's!! and a 980x - Page 6

post #51 of 55
Thread Starter 
Not as much as I wanted. I can run 875/2000 no prob, but 900 is locking up. My temps are fine. I think I may need more than 1200w. I may add a AX850 also. Still messing with things tho.

Then I modded the top of the case for my Feser Quad, and that was holding the temps in the lower 70's. I was cooling my 980x as well. The 480's would heat up the coolant to much and made my 980x temps higher than I liked. So I went this route.

I know a lot of you are wondering and warning me about condensation, but I'm not chilling the water that much to worry. I am pretty comfortable with the coolant at 50f and I get no condensation at all. The unit should hang with the heat load my pc is generating. The tank has 5 gallons of coolant. It's not like the normal pc water loop with say 1/4-1/2 gallon of coolant. It takes a long time to heat up 5 gallons. When I was playing Crysis 2 for a hour last night, it only kicks on for a minute every 10mins. When I was just on the net, it kicked on every 20-30min for 2min. I don't think I will over work this unit. I also picked up a wall mounted drinking fountain for $20, so I have extra parts if needed.
I have 2 loops one for the MB, CPU and one for my 480's. Loop 1 with the CPU is a XSPC 360 and it keeps my 980x max 50c @ 4.5g. Second loop is a XSPC 480 and my gtx 480’s never go over 50c @ 850 core. Both my rads are outside of my case on a custom stand I made. So far I’m pretty happy with it and I suspect like you the only thing holding me back is the lack of vram.

How far can you push the clocks on all 3 cards? I can get 950 on the core running 1 at a time, but only 875 running all 3.

I can do 900 core without unlocking the volts. But really only do this when benching. I haven’t had a game yet apart from crysis, crysis warhead & metro that need more than 700 core for 60fps @ 6100x1200. I generally hit the vram limit before anything else.

Yeah, so far in Crysis 2 @ 5850x1080 I'm using 1.4gb's of Vram per card. 2xAA puts me over the limit. 4875x900 runs at 100-120fps in C2 and is only using 1.1gb. I can use 4 or 8xAA at that res and it looks just about as good. Wish these cards came with 2gb of vram.
