Here's few pics of the system in action.
I have tried some older gamere and they work flawlessly.
In the photos I wanted to try out something a little more challenging.
It's running the Tomb Rider in 3D at 720p with ultra quality settings.
Please note that the tressfx is enabled too.
With these settings the frame rate gets around 25fps at lowest, average seems to be around 30.
If I disable tressfx the fps jumps up to around 40-45fps so it does make quite an impact on this system.
Yet I'm still impressed how well these old cards work even when they are not crossfired.
I also tried Deus Ex human revolution in 3D and it runs fine 1080p with all settings maxed, though it is seems limited by the tv to 24hz in 3D. Maybe i'll try 720p next time as it gives 50hz
I still have to see if there is some option I need to tweak, because the picture does not fill the whole tv screen when games are in 3d mode.. desktop doesnt have those black borders. I have set the catalyst control panel to 0% underscan and that scaled the desktop to full screen. Somehow it doesn't affect 3D modes..
Still it's pretty cool to game 3D with the big screen. The tomb rider looks awesome and the xbox controller seems to work pretty nicely on that too. (I'm more of a mouse an a keyboard kind of guy so it was nice to see its ok with pad)
The water temp seems to get around 41'C, but the gpu core and voltage regulators stay around 50-55 max (4hours of gaming)
I could change the fan profile to be even more agressive but I'm not sure i need to. Its nice and quiet like this and its still way better than the original cooler.
