Have you attached the GPU water blocks to your 670s yet? It's hard to tell which waterblocks will work with the 4GB version of this card.

Note yet. Started testing everything last night with standard air cooling (minus the CPU, using the EK block, 120.3 and 1/2 of a pump).

I expect I'll get to putting the blocks on the 670s end of the week, although that leaves me with all the sleeving and putting 40 fans back together before I can start doing any leak testing on them.

Side note on the Swiftech fittings - I had one "tear" on me, some accidental force on one and it broke off at the G1/4 section of the fitting, luckily I was able to take it out with completely tearing on me but the fitting is useless now. Also, I had an issue where I thought I had tightened down the outer ring of the fitting going into the pump only to watch it slowly come off during leak testing. Luckily no water got on anything electronic (was a leak test anyway, nothing powered up). I can't tell if it's my inexperience with the fittings or a trend; time will tell.

Work testing the components continues.

I ran crystal disk mark on the OCZ Vertex 4 - all I can say is wow...

Finished benching EVGA 670 SC card 1 on air - +124 Mhz core offset, +600 Mhz memory. Unlikely I'll be able to do more with water but we'll see.

I need to bench the other 2 cards then in triple SLI.

Ok, 2nd card is just as good as the first - +124 Mhz core offset, +600 Mhz memory.



Card 3 though was really bad - only a 38 kepler boost and wouldn't overclock at all.

I'm worried it's borderline for longevity and put a call into EVGA for advice.

For grins I put all the cards in SLI and pushed them, maxed out at +74 offset and +300 memory. Nice but I think I'm held back by the 3rd card.

Did EVGA respond to you about your concerns with the 3rd card?

Yes, they got back to me pretty quick, and basically said that they don't guarantee cards will overclock and since it runs fine at stock there is nothing they can do for me.

So.... I bought a 4th card and it will arrive Sat. I'll test it and see if it's better, then I'll keep the top 3 of the 4 cards and give one of my kids the reject. They don't OC so stock will be a nice upgrade for them.
