Yeah When I first got them I was worried that they might get hot, but so far they have been OK but not brilliant. I hit 76c on the first card @ 1.2v on a 960/1400 overclock. That is with a custom fan profile that is only slightly higher then normal and around 72c on the second.

I have found that removing the blanking plate on the pci slot between the cards helps to cool it slightly but for the future I am planning on taking one of my cards into uni to digitally measure the chip layout so i can design and make a set of full cover water blocks for my non-ref 6850's.

Edit: forgot to mention that changing the TIM for MX5 helped shave 2-3c over stock and also seemed to delay the temperature increase and speed up the drop quite considerably.

How did you manage to get the back panel closed with that 24 pin going behind? I literally physically can't do that.

First install into the scout (Ga-880gm-ud2h board with AMD Athlon II X3 450)....now this is what i call cable management WINNING (joke) tongue.gif Joined OCN the week of that photo.
450

First PSU broke, so i got a cheap replacement (still using it as well tongue.gif ) I decided to have a good attempt at some cable management...(This was the start of the obsession )
399

Next i overheated the PSU for having the case sat on the carpet doh.gif drastic solution came in the form of a set of castor wheels modified to bolt onto the case.
450

sometime later I performed the standard scout mod of a hard drive cover, PSU cover and clear window.
399
700

Ditched the 5770 in favour of the 5850....i had a nightmare of a job trying to get the sata cables to fit behind it!
399

Finally up to date with the z68x-ud5-b3 board and 2x 6850's biggrin.gif .I'm now the owner of a dremel, so I was able to perform some slight surgery to the case to re-position the 24 pin cable and notch the drive bay slightly to allow for my sata cables to pass through straight.
399
(modified the psu cover to hide 99% of the switch cables and usb cables.)
399
399399

Jobs for the future include:- change colour of the Lights to blue and build this case extension( hopefully soon as i have got the materials now! smile.gif )

Well thats it for now hope you enjoyed my timeline thumb.gif

Wow.. My dad saw this and said, " I miss those guys so much. Semper Fi. Do or Die."

My only worry is I have a single sata port left so only one more hard drive. I'm going to have to swap out smaller drives for larger ones eventually once hard drive prices stabilze again.
I've crammed it so full of stuff it actually weighs a ton!

If I'm right they both fit in the case. You might have to do some pushing or cutting though.

That is a great build.. I love using that Cooler Master Case. it has so many features and it is good that you did not use the PSU that comes with the case. I don't trust those, but that 430 Corsair is an Awesome choice. You look like you got it together.. or will have it all together soon enough. That is a Build that will last.

Great build.thumb.gif

The Asus 6950 is 1.1" longer than my Asus 6850 (pictured in my Scout above).

Great build.thumb.gif

thanks a lot! I've already built it and delivered it; but taking some pictures shouldn't be too hard. I'll upload them as soon as possible.
btw. the total cost of this rig was only 308 euro's. ir can play crysis 2 on low with 30 fps.
