Hey there Jothay

 

Nice setup to begin with.

 

I have a question.

 

What kind of a temperature difference did you have when having 1 GPU vs 2 GPUs?

 

How much more hotter did the 2nd GPU raise (if you ever used your system in SLI of course. I am sure 3 or 4 way SLI like yours will run even hotter as you mentioned)

Well I bought 3 at once from Fry's (the fourth I get to get from Newegg) so I didn't even test single/dual cards tongue.gif

I can run a series of benchmarks for people, I just need to know what all to run and in what configurations, see the i7-3930K build in my signature to see my hardware, I can go anywhere from single to surround setup and 1-4 cards in various SLi states. I can also apply and remove the PCIE 3.0 hack to show those changes.

I put that statement up to Tom's Hardware's contact us link to see if they wanted me to run anything for them (since they only went up to Tri-SLi in their configs).

Edit:
I should also mention, the board (Asus Rampage IV Extreme) will run the cards in the following configs:

1 card: 16x __ __ __
2 cards: 16x __ 16x __
3 cards: 16x 8x 8x __
4 cards: 16x 8x 8x 8x

So the suction isn't a problem until you get to 3/4 cards.

I'd like to see some PCIe 2.0 vs 3.0 results redface.gif With whatever game benchmarks you have as well as Heaven/3dMark11

On A basic level it is 1% = 3%

Going extreme res 3x - 4x Gpus it can tally up to between 5% and 8% or Even much higher as seen below.

Yeah I seen that graph a bunch of times, forgot his name but the one guy from this site posted that a while ago. CallsignVega maybe? That's why I want to see if there's a similar benefit for Jothay, and how much of a benefit in various games redface.gif

Those are charts Ive seen before. I however seem to have developed a problem, not sure if its just a reporting bug by GPU-Z or not.

When I turned the hack backoff, by removing the registry keys that were added, I reboot and see the render test showing me all PCI-E 2.0. But when IU turn it back on, they say 1.1 2.0 1.1 1.1...

Got my 680 and water block a few days ago. My friend and I both put our blocks on at the same time (his is the white one): Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)








Mine finished:

His finished (I like his better):

Both of us are enjoying 40C load temps biggrin.gif

Also, can you add me to the club?

EDIT: Duh doh.gif I forgot my original question!

Has anyone been able to get rid of the horrible stacked power connector? I keep seeing that the extra 6-pin is optional, but nothing about removing the original connector.

LAWL. I live a few miles from there.... my favorite donut place on the planet.

Would have been hilarious if my car was in the background or something when you took the photo.
