Temps are great on that block but they're quite restrictive in a quad setup. You'll want to run it on a 2x2 parallel setup on th gpus.

Dude, how high is the OC on those cards? 1600w from the wall..... not as bad as the 480's, but still pretty high.

Also, how much do you draw now, with the 3930? O_O

My cards clock to around 1330/1800 full tilt. I haven't run a current killawatt test, but I should huh? Yea, I should. Stay tuned.

*Did a heaven run at 5.1 and 1325/1775. It was pretty hard timing it right when it peaked even with the buzzer going off. I think it crested 1790 or so maybe higher, but I couldn't catch it on the camera. A video would have worked better I think.

The power efficiency of Kepler is something to consider unless you don't pay the power bill or don't care about it.

They aren't faster and when you unlock them the the power draw picture changes a bit, besides the clock differences between rigs. That said you're right they are still more efficient though that's probably because they had their compute guts torn out and priced higher for Nvidia's troubles.

My 3 7970's draw 820w stock with furmark and 2 draw 560W so I estimate 4 would draw around 1080W ( 820-560 = 260 + 820) so they are no worse.
