Keep up the good work.

My scores are daily drivers on AIR.
this aint no bench queen!
...being in the computer field, I use these 'bench' setups as a test bed for components that subsequently wander off into a mission-critical commercial environment...by the time I pushed a mobo, CPU or RAM 60%+ beyond specs for a while w / o issues, I know they'll do just fine at stock settings later for years on end > so really, I'm just looking to find what the 'max headroom' is beyond factory specs...
...on tips, there are a few 'basic' ones, and you already touched on one re. cooling.
The 2x GPU run was in a system whereby JUST the 2x GPUs were cooled by 1080x60 rad space and 3x pumps...during the run in question, ambient temp was about 17c, and peak GPU temp during FSU never exceeded 22 C...the other (related) bit refers to custom BIOS on the GPU (up to 300% power target) and the 2x GPU run (w/ results that can and will be broken, perhaps even by myself) was powered by 2x PSUs w/ a total of 2150w capacity (the quad run posted earlier uses up to 4 PSUs for just under 4000w)...so the 'basics' are obviously about cooling and clean power delivery, no matter whether you got a 'dog' chip in your GPU(s) or a 'golden' one.
