Quote:thanks! I started sweatin' a little bit while I was putting this together because I started seeing all of the different elements I had dreamed up already being implemented here and there on other 600t's. I marched forward anyhow and, while there are similarities to some other setups, it's still pretty original IMHO. I'm hoping the internal 120mm fans will keep the 6850s a little cooler too.
The stupid 6850s are different because XFX made an unpublished revision to the dual-fan boardw and didn't even tell newegg! (I bought the two cards about 4 months apart). The bigger card is the newer card and it is essentially a 6870 PCB (including dual 6-pin power) with 6850 guts. Needless to say, I was a bit disappointed when I ended up with this configuration since I have been planning this detail oriented build for quite some time. Oh well. I guess when I eventually upgrade to the 7xxx series I'll just have to buy two cards at the same time lol.
