Expect a fantastically loud machine with 3 of those vaccuum-esque radeons sucking all the air they can to stay below their melting point.
First, I do not really need to explain the details of the economical rational behind my questions, but here goes:
I did not ordered the 3 6990, a friend of mine did and he his backing out of the deal, and I start to know why ...
About the budget. Simple answer: No More Cash for high end systems.
Either it goes with air-cooling And the mentioned Mboards ... or else ... sorry my friend not interested ...
About the machine, I stated the intent of the machine as multipurpose folding and the forbidden thing ... , but not gaming.
Actually I think that board is overkill and highly expensive for gaming.
I will only take the order to that friend of mine If the thing can be sustainable with the mobos I have talked about and air cooling.
For example a Asus Formula Extreme, which does have more space between PCI-e slots, is out of the question for the same budgetary constraints ...
All other components other them the Mobo and maybe some fans are from previous systems of mine.
