So it would be great if you could confirm this card pushes air out the back, although as it's positive pressure you mentioned it wouldn't matter if it didn't, but even so wink.gif

I had three 6970 and then 560 448 TFIII and with three 230mm fans + two 140s + two 120s as intake, I had enough positive pressure to keep them nice respectably cool (mind you the EVGA FTW z77 helped a lot with its pcie slot spacing). I only had one 140mm fan as exhaust.

The IceQ Turbo is indeed a turbine cooler and routes air through the rear (though its not completely sealed back there). The trade off with turbines is acoustics. Turbines are still noisy but the new generation has improved them. I really haven't seen many makers go with a custom turbine coolers. I'm guessing due to the uniqueness and what looks like a good decent design, it should fall between the reference turbine and the dual fan coolers. I'm siding it might be close to the dual fan. I would check out some reviews; most will show thermal and acoustic comparisons to the reference cooler.

Thank you for that.

As for the reviews, it looks good smile.gif

My 7970's each get around 60fps in Heaven 3.0 at 1080P maxed (1230MHz / 1750MHz). For fun I ran my backup rig at those same settings with a 2600K and a GTX 580 Lightning overclocked to 930MHz:



Keep in mind that this time last year the 580 Lightning was about the fastest single-GPU card you could buy! Can't wait until the next generation releases!

Hello I need some help here, any eyefinity user?.

Look I'll buy 3 monitors for eyefinity but I'm really noob and I read this from AMD's web page:

" Monitors:
• AMD recommends DisplayPort Display monitors, as they offer optimal flexibility with the highest number of display outputs
• Depending on the specific graphic card and operating system, ATI Eyefinity technology can support up to six displays. For configurations using more than two displays, additional displays must have DisplayPort connectors. "

SO all the plan I made for the setup was wrong or...??. Look the next pic please.



Now I thougth I would be able to use 2 MiniDisplay Port to HDMI and hook by HDMI cables all monitors as I draw in the pic.

Is it wrong that way?. Should I listen AMD's recommendations and get a DisplayPort Display monitors??. AHhh please help I'm going nuts.

I decided to not to a complete restore; I lucked out and got back to my desktop. I had my system restore option off for some dumb reason so I couldn't rollback but now its back on. I'm back up and running but the gpu usage still shoots to 100% if I stay idle on my desktop. I decided to just live with it just because of the headache I went thru to try and fix it.

I think your solution will work ! I am thinking of the same setup with mini displayport to HDMI on both, then a third screen to the fullsize HDMI, in my head it will work great, but I can't give you a 100% straight answer on that redface.gif

I've been surfing through the web and I found this, look read for yourself and be informed about recommended eyefinity setups:

Sapphire the best. I'll be buying this card:

Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 OC Version 3Gb GDDR5





In its bundle comes all the required adapters to make eyefinity possible.

Thanks for sharing ! smile.gif
I will buy a 24 inch gaming screen with displayport later and use that screen into displayport output smile.gif
Also a sapphire card is interesting me, the Sapphire HD 7950 Vapor-X 3 GB seems very nice with Fullsize outputs of 1x HDMI and 1x Displayport and 2x DVI thumb.gif
This card ! smile.gif
outputs.jpg

It is also available as 7970 model, I haven't decidied which is most interesting for me yet tongue.gif

Yes thats the Sapphire Flex edition I think. Also I've read this card is the best option to make eyefinity a little less stressful because it has all the needed outputs and bundle for making eyefinity viable.
