actually, on the BFG GTX 280 H2OC, it is a SINGLE SLOT watercooled solution, WOOT! the only problem for me is that they dont sell the waterblock seperately, only as a card, and its $729.00 :swearing:

Why doesn't everyone see that this test is horribly flawed? I bet if the quad core CPU was used in the single and regular SLI tests as well, it would show that you really don't get that much benefit from the third card as the tests would indicate. Just look at the CPU bottleneck they had on the dual core tests! That's not showing the true performance of the cards...

And the reviewer says that several times in the article. In fact,

"Objectivity in this part - I mentioned it earlier, I kept the 3-way SLI results away from the first part of this article, as the results taken with this system quite honestly may not be compared with the Single and SLI results as mentioned in all charts.

So please understand this is for reference only .. just to show you what can be achieved. The Single & (2x) SLI results have been taken on our standard 680i - X6800 test setup. And the 3-way SLI results are done on "The Uberclock" system. I just wanted to make this very clear so there can be no misunderstanding."

The point of the review was to show the capability of the three on a fast system. However, I am curious to see the difference between the single, SLI, and Tri-SLI on the same quad-core system.

In any case, it definitely isn't worth the money for the third card (unless you have bottomless pockets), and probably not worth it for the second unless you are going for very high resolution.
