EDIT: What kind of temps are you getting across the video cards? Mine are very hot considering they're under water. Fully stressed out under heaven/valley, I'm doing 50C, 52C, 51C. That's with the 3960X @ 1.43v in the same loop. I've got the same amount of radiator area as you but I've got one big loop powered by one D5. The D5's turned up to max but I still get the feeling that the video cards are splitting the flow of water 3 ways, causing very low flow across the cards.
EDIT 2: You sure Heaven doesn't make one or two of your cards cap out around 60% utilized? After looping for ~30 mins in heaven its almost as if all of a sudden it overheats and then for the rest of the duration, it doesn't go above 60% regardless the application. A disable and reenable of SLI / reinstalling drivers / resetting computer a few times fixes this issue but then it happens again. It's really strange.
Pics soon. Just major busy.
My cards reach 40 degrees absolute max, usually around 35-38. I've honestly not noticed any gpu usage issue. The only time I've had any issue is when I was going for a huge Valley score last night and when it crashed, instead of just freezing the fps dropped to half and so did the gpu usage but that was when I was trying to get +700 on the memory stable. I had to restart the computer to get rid of the issue.Edited by Jameswalt1 - 6/12/13 at 5:47pm
