Thanks a lot folks. Really appreciate everyone's time and input.

Well my point is that the ramchips are small plastic flat packs that if the coollaboratory liquid pro soldered they would break very easily and its not possible to apply ramsinks to vrms with the stuff without shorting out the vrms(extremely risky). You can apply it to a cpu ihs but it will etch the top(if you can remove it all there will be eaten out swirl patterns in the ihs) and destroy it cosmetically and possibly require sanding if you allow it to harden and dry(or if it soldered and you need to apply another heatsink). Putting it on bare cores is extremely risky as well maybe not if you change it frequently but I imagine this can be hard to gauge. That stuff is great and has the highest thermal conductance but its expensive so once you have it seated you probably dont want to reapply it again if you dont have to(I imagine the tube has very few applications as well). If you take too long or forget(happens very easily after all my years of computing years fly right by) it may solder on when that happens if you ever want to remove the sink the only thing holding it together is a wafer of silicon which is not too stong. I can't think of any other way other than trying to heat it to remove it(maybe if you can clock it and get the temp really high just once but what if it doesnt work......). Then you are in a real jam. I'm looking for the threads with the photos of the chunks broken out but they are the worst photos of chip destruction deformation i have ever seen. The inside of the wafer is black and silvery just like those huge silicon crystals they cut the wafers from.

Doesn't this also depend on the motherboard dude?
I'll take pics of when I SLI my cards - but there will be a clear space between them. Small it may be, but there will be space biggrin.gif

1)Getting a bit off topic but ... CLU doesn't seem to be as problematic as CLP and I agree see [HERE]

2) Yes motherboards can make a difference but don't forget the R 290's Lawson is looking to buy are "3 slot" cards compared to yours and mine "2 slot" 680gtx's

The heatsink isn't the problem, the problem is with that little a gap the fans can't deliver cooling air to the heatsink. But I never tried crossfiring the Powercolors, and magiccase's issue may have been that the 90 degree rotation of the motherboard was preventing the PCS+ cooler from doing its job. So I wish you the best, hope it works out, please report on temps when you do this because I would like a second Powercolor over this Tri-X since crossfiring different cards looks goofy.

There's 2 slots between the cards, won't fit otherwise. And I don't know of a board that offers 3 slots between cards. So I think the pix I showed is the best spacing you can get.

What he did include was this prong;


and this brick;





Will this, which I have, work in place of the Korean prong (1st pic above) that came with it;



Again, thanks so much!


Ah makes sense! Yeah no worries then - indeed you can - and/or buy a Korea to US plug adapter for your wall (costs like $5 or less I bet).
JUST make sure of one thing:
On the BRICK - does it say: 110v-240v?

I don't want you blowing your monitor. Shouldn't be a problem seeing as you're in the US anyway (low voltage in comparison to the UK/EU)
I don't have the monitor myself but it SHOULD be like that - but I can't be sure.
Ie. if you buy a RADIO from the US and take it to the UK, you would blow it.

ah ha! that makes sense! Yup my 680s are 2 slot ones.
THE MORE YOU KNOW biggrin.gif

Well confirmation right there for you smile.gif

yup read up about it after you posted (via a OCN poster too) - makes sense - what I was trying to say was that.
"Supersampling" not "upscaling" is what I meant.
I had the right idea, just the wrong terminology hehe! tongue.gif

1. Haha yeah CLU > CLP - but very very marginally.
I bought CLU because I preferred its composition in paste, over the more "liquid" CLP.
Also easier application AND removal of CLU over CLP.

2.Indeed my bad for missing that out!

I think i will be fine as my side door apart from having lower side fans... also have a side window that bulges out about 3 inches wider than the case it self is..below is a quick picture i just took looking though the window into the case and you can clearly see that there will be plenty of air flow around the cards even if there is only millimetres between them!... from the width of my case and this lovely bulging outwards window!...of course i will also do the lots of temp testing and let you know how i get on temps wise...but i feel i should be fine as its not as if they are enclosed in a case where no air can get over or around them thumb.gif



Edit: And underneath those cards you see in the picture is a 120mm 1800rpm fan blowing upwards ...apart from 2x 80mm side fans in the sides and a further 2x 120mm 1800rpm fan brining in air from the front of the case...and this air is then being pulled out at the top of the case by 2x 120mm 1800rpm fans in the roof tongue.gif

Hi, I was planning to order a qnix qx2710 but I rather prefer a glossy coating which in case of the qnix would cost me double the original price. I came across this monitor:

http://www.ebay.de/itm/27-New-Ultimate-Perfect-Pixel-Glossy-Screen-MONEX-M27QSM-QHD-PLS-Monitor-/321328611843?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item4ad0ad8203

It has a glossy PLS panel for the same price as the qnix matte PLS . If they use the same panel ( which they probably do ) is there any reason I shouldn`t buy this over the qnix ?

The only one I can think of is that the Monex doesn't overclock (much), if that matters to you.

Hmm.. and I just saw that the Monex has a slightly different case and I am planning to remove the stand. I am not sure if the existing tutorials work with this case … I guess I might just stick to the qnix .
