Looks nice.

One thing to note about GTX580 SLI is it can get rather warm. If you haven't built a modern PC with a GPU, these days the nVidia cards get really warm. I just got a EVGA GTX580 w/ the reference cooler(it's going under h20), and it gets up to 80-85C by itself. Obviously the Lightning would be cooler than that, I don't know exactly how much cooler, but probably 15-20C cooler I would imagine. I would check around the nvidia section, see what kind of temps other Lightning users are getting, and how the temps are affected with SLI.

The case you have chosen should have good airflow, but with the Twin Frozr III cooler on the Lightning card, it just dumps the hot air into the case. With 2 of those cards dumping hot air into your case, you may need to pick up some extra fans to help move that hot air out.

I had gtx470's running in SLI, and after a month of the top card (Twin Frozr II GTX470) running at 90C, I decided to put it under water. Now I intend on doing the same with my GTX580, although I may wait until after winter, they do make lovely space heaters wink.gif

Thanks Anubis1127, what kind of fan's shoud I take? And would it be possible to put a lightning under water to? Because I have no idea if the waterblock sits on the back or on the front side were the fan's are placed.

Your setup is good but please for the love of god get a i5 2500k, same performance, lower price and you wont feel as bad when and if you upgrade to a new ivy brigde cpu.

Have fun with your build! any questions and we are here!
post #27 of 36
Same, save the $100 which can be put towards future upgrades or some decent case fans which it seems like you'll need sooner or later.

The extra threads from the 2600k might seem cool but completely useless if you're building this PC for gaming. Unless you plan on doing any video encoding or media related work/production then extra threads/cores would not be useful.

Other than that, your build looks great.

Thanks guys, the system will be used mainly for gaming and some video editing.

Anybody have some intel on waterblocks for msi lightning 580, or is it not possible?
post #29 of 36
I'm 99% sure the msi lightning uses a custom PCB so it will be difficult or probably impossible to find a waterblock that will fit.

^This, the Lightning is a complete custom PCB, so I doubt you will find a full block for it. If you are planning on putting them under water from the get go, you might as well just get an EVGA, or other reference card.

I go with EVGA when going with water because they are reference cards, so you'll have plenty of waterblock options, in general they have a high build quality, and good customer service. No point in getting the fancy non-reference cooler if you're just going to take it off, and put the cards under h20. EVGA also makes a couple cards h20 ready if you don't want to mess with putting the waterblock on.
