My RIg - Completed! [EVGA GTX-580 Classified 3GB 4-Way SLI] w/ Benchmarks and PICS!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Guys,

I have finally "finished" setting up my rig as of late last night, complete with benchmarks and I'm supremely happy with it so far. biggrin.gif

Unigine Heaven 2.5 (1920x1080 MAX Settings):
910MHz.jpg


I am not sure what to make of these results. The OC of 910MHz and 2200 for Memory is rock solid in benchmarks and games and this is WITHOUT any voltage tweaks and in "Normal" mode in 4-Way SLI.

I tried the "OC" mode once and was able to hit 950MHz in 4-Way SLI but there was some problem with the drivers. I had to reinstall them and haven't had a chance to test the cards in OC mode again. I will be testing the cards very soon in "OC" mode and pushing them to try and hit 1000MHz stable in 4-Way SLI.

Please keep in mind that as the number of cards go up, the more difficult it is to achieve a higher overclock that is stable. All my OC settings can be used 24/7 but I just use them for gaming. During "normal" operation, I just use the stock settings which is 855MHz.

I will update this thread as I test higher OC settings and will also post some screenshots of games once I can get them to work properly in Surround! Right now, BF3 works great in Surround and is using more than 2.9GB of VRAM! The lens flare effect is terrible; I went from being around 15 - 4 type result to 4 - 10 because I couldn't tell who was who. Plus, I got kicked from a server because I team-killed too many times; I can't see anything so I just sprayed at anything that moved! LOL... Skyrim uses around 2.7GB on Ultra settings but the picture looks so stretched/zoomed in that I can't see properly and it makes me dizzy. Once I figure out how to make them work properly in Surround, I'll post some sweet pics!

I am so happy with my set up; it's been a long time coming but it's finally (more or less) done! smile.gif

a limiting factor that is going to play with your graphics cards overclocking is the heat your going to build up between them. maybe look at investing in a nice custom watercooling loop for the cpu and cards. the 4way Classy is a awesome board and with some knowledge you can really push your processor. 1.3000v is still on the low side for a 990X you could take it higher as long as the temps are fine.
Finally Finished!

Wow, lol, that is an impressive rig. What, did you strike oil in your back yard or something. I bet Zotac will be recruiting you soon to join the folding team.

HOLY JESUS! I wonder how much that cost :-P.

Congrats on one heck of a build. Enjoy playing everything on max!

EDIT: I just noticed the Belkin n52/ Razer Nostromo.Privet, tovarishch! (Not russian in anyway, I just thought a russian phrase would be appropriate.

Congrats smile.gif

We are in a similar boat with the Quad sli but this makes my second 590 feel a bit smaller smile.gif

Now that is a very nice rig, slightly surprised your on air cooling with something like 4-Way 580's. I'd have thought water would be the only way to run that many cards together, but i feel that case has a big part to play in them running nicely. Nice job... thumb.gif

Not sure 1Ghz core is possible on air with 4-Way SLI without temperatures getting a little out of control.

I'm so J!!!!!!!!!!

So how loud is your rig when running a demanding game? I imagine that giant CPU cooler sounds silent, but that the GPUs can be super loud. Not true?
