Seeing as my 760 SLI setup beats a Titan in most benchmarks, and the 660 somewhere is the order of 10% less powerful than the 760, i'd say it would more than do the job.

It's amazing to me how well these mid-range sli setups perform, especially at 1080p.

Thank you biggrin.gif

I love them! I couldn't ask for a better kit for the price I paid. Since I got them for about $75 off as an open box set, they are the absolute best bang for your buck, but even at retail they are well worth the money.

x3non1c is correct. There is about 10% +/- less than my friends identical build with twin 760s. Benchmarks are within 1000 points and actual gameplay isn't recognizable. 1-3 fps on most games. I play 40+ FPS on ultra on everything even BF4. LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM. wheee.gifwheee.gifwheee.gif

I made my buddy mad because he dropped about $1600 on his build with an I7 and SLI 770s and I paid about 1/4 of the price and get the same results in game. Benchmark is about 3-4000 points lower, but actual ingame you can't tell any difference. Worth every penny. lol

All this about the 660 makes me want to get another for sli. I was holding off for highend maxwell cards, but im impatient...

This is all speculative, really.

And yes, a nasty mess if I ran water. .or even basic anti-corrosive mix. I am also not fool enough to use those stock CPU blocks. All of the early failure with these modules involved gasket leaks there. The blocks themselves are copper bottomed and casted (something. .brass?) on top. The solid tubing is yet another metal. Etc. Filled with some nasty ph adjusted lime green anti corrosive mix that (assuming your pump or gaskets didn't die) was supposed to be good for 5-7 years. All of the dead LCS modules I dissected were not corroded on any interior surfaces.

Not worth the effort of dealing with them really, at least for a conventional desktop PC, just like the last time I checked. Too much custom junk would need to be kludged together.

I finally got around to messing with the acrylic tubing. I like the way it looks, but I don't like the way the fittings fit in the tube. So I don't know if I am going with threaded acrylic or normal tubing.

The only bad thing about switching over to regular tubing is that I spent about $150 on bitspower male to male fittings and I would have no use for them.

I thought about that, but I don't think I have enough rep to post there.
