Here are some quick benchmark results from the 3 780's with a slight overclock. The Heaven pic I uploaded features 780's vs 680's with a ridiculous gain. The Metro LL benchmark was done in Surround, maxed except no MSAA (actual in-game framerates are actually 60-75 maxed at 5760x1080, no MSAA, contrary to the benchmark average FPS, which is typical of any game benchmark). Very promising given the early drivers and initially intermittent scaling in 3 way sli. The Valley definitely seems a tad low however. One interesting thing with these cards is that I had to adjust the overclock on every benchmark, the stability is more inconsistent than typical at higher clocks.
I can't express enough how much smoother these cards are in a 3 way sli configuration versus the 680's, seriously night and day. Not just with obviously higher framerates but every game runs soooo much smoother, less stutters, lag, etc.. I found that in every fist-person and third-person game that my previous controller sensitivity settings are way too high, most likely I was unknowingly making up for the poor nature of the 680's in 3 way SLI (and yes I play with a controller, never ever with a keyboard). Very happy with the upgrade. Running Metro LL and Crysis 3 maxed out in Surround at 60+ fps is truly a sight to behold.
I'll have pics of the updated system in general most likely by Wednesday. I changed part of the GPU loop routing and had to cut a couple of new tubes. It looks great. I'm just trying to get the cables looking good now.
*Both 3dmark runs are at 5.1Ghz, the Valley is 5.0, the rest are 4.8.Edited by Jameswalt1 - 6/9/13 at 2:08am
