Both my cardsare reference blower style cooled and I'm glad I decided to go that route. Air flow can be better defined especially in sli, not having one card inhaling hot air from the other.

BUMMER they cracked it. Can you see the cracks or are they covered by the black window surround? They broke the corner off mine too but you cant see it when fitted because of the black surround.

Whats the max temperature on your top card mate?

It very visible right across the top. There's another one just below both holes. Sorry about the bad picture. It was taken in a hurry.
My top card during games tops out at 51C that I've seen. I haven't benched in a while but I want to say 61C is max

The two holes came out great, it's a shame it cracked.

The worst habbit to have is always wanting the best and fastest, and this is even more so true in the computing world as things change so quickly. You should only be replacing something when it no longer performs to your needs, just because a card is one model or three years old does not mean it is not as good as the latiest and greatiest.. if your current card copes with all your needs then the only thing you have gained by getting the newiest card is less money in your pocket.

Also you have to consider people that have invested in a full water cooling system, for me I have been waiting for a nice looking acrylic waterblock for my GTX690 and finally after 10mths of waiting I now have it, I would not drop my kit (pardon the pun) and buy the latiest kit if I have to wait around for a waterblock to be release. The Titian is the first GPU which I have seen that had a waterblock avalible on release date.

A fool and his money are soon parted, and people should not act the fool and try and keep up with the Jone's. I expect to get the next 3 yrs out of my current GPU, and maybe add a second when the price drops big time on them.. my i7 on the other hand had better last me 5yrs which it should.

Of course, this could all change if someone was to buy my old stuff for good money and an upgrade does not cost that much more.. but only if there was a benifit. For example, right now everything is focused on 1080p (which sucks), but if I can get a couple more years out of my kit and 4K really kicks in and GPU's start to handle this resoloution and monitors start having 4K res on a 27" 120+ Hz monitor..

If I had my choices of upgrading my graphics card with no seeable benifit to myself, or say taking two weeks off and go snowboarding.. the choice would not be hard... Snowboarding, and I will wait for the next big release and do the whole tech review thing again. 2cents.gif

Sure, as I mentioned previously, if you're including cost that's fine. However, when you say this: "just because a card is one model or three years old does not mean it is not as good as the latiest and greatest", well not to step on anyone's toes or anything, but that's just not true. If your card is three years old, by definition it's not as good as the latest and greatest. Often times (after three years) by double the performance.

I'm not saying a gpu from two years ago (or even three years) is not a good gpu, but the fact is the newest high end card is going to way outperform it. Just look through ocn and see how many people are purchasing high end cards. I did it myself a couple of years ago. I'm not unhappy with my decision, but the original comments were saying that single cards could no longer perform with settings on games cranked and that a two card solution is now the only way to go. All I'm saying is that statement isn't true. When I can have two high end cards be outperformed by a wide margin by a single card one year later, well that pretty much proves the case right there.

In fact, I just found the post I was referring to. It was from March 2012:

http://www.overclock.net/t/831636/official-corsair-graphite-club/5570#post_16834155

There you have one single card outperforming my two HD6970 cards in cfx. Not just outperforming them, but creaming them. That's 130 fps vs 61 fps from my two cards. That may be an expensive card, but my two cards cost even more about a year earlier. I paid about $379 cdn for the HD6970 and about $329 for the HD 6950. That's about $700, which is more than most high end cards.

We are on an enthusiast site, right? That means a lot of high end hardware, and the people purchasing it don't consider it wasting money on their computer. Look at the thread we're in right now. How many people out there would consider a Graphite 600T a waste of money? Yet everyone in the thread owns one, and none of us consider it a waste of money.

You may consider upgrading every year a bad habit and a "waste of money" but the fact is that most people who do that sell off their old hardware to finance the new hardware, and if they keep the ball rolling year after year they are never spending too much because of the cost being off set by the sale of their old hardware.

Now, having said all that, I only upgrade every three or four years myself. And, I'm perfectly happy with two cfx HD6970 cards, but that doesn't alter the fact that the newest cards will way outperform my two cards and that was my point to begin with. I mean, reread your last post. You just called half the enthusiasts on this site fools because they like to upgrade their computers often (" a fool and his money are soon parted"), something that has nothing to do with the point I was making in the first place. All I said is that the newest high end gpus can run games with the settings cranked, and you don't need dual cards to achieve that. I have no idea what that comment has to do with how often people upgrade.

It was said that Corsair changed a mold at some point in production time which made the existing minor but manageable imperfection (as illustrated in the picture) a bigger imperfection, resulting in a different (problematic) fit of panels

OK, that makes sense. That shows that not all 600Ts have that problem. I'm glad I didn't have the issue on my first gen 600T or I would have taken it back.

All but 1 of my games hugely benefits from SLI, with most of the time getting around 90% FPS increase over a single card. Other games will get about a 40 - 60% performance increase such as F1 2012. I couldn't do without mine.

I was worried about spending another £320 on a second card after hearing problems with micro stuttering and poor scaling but I can say I haven't experienced any, just high FPS with everything maxed out, butter smooth with my 120hz monitor. Best investment in a long time.

My cards are a touch hotter than id like (still only reaches about 72c on a hot day, normally around 68c) and overclock is rubbish because my second card is useless at overclocking (only achieves 1189mhz before it crashes) but in SLI the cards are so powerful none of this matters too much

That's awesome. I think you bought the perfect cards and made a great purchase. When I purchased mine, nvidia cards were not scaling well and I was reading a lot of articles on how well the AMD cards scaled (at the time). I also came across various articles on how you can flash the bios in an HD6950 card to make it run with the same settings and shaders as an HD6970. So, I ordered two HD6950 cards and when they came in I was disappointed to find only one was a reference card. I sent the other one back and spent a week trying to find some place that still had stock on the reference cards, but I could only find a few brand names I had never heard of before. So, I ended up getting an HD6970 to CFX with my flashed HD6950. It performs well, and something pretty cool is I was able to compare the two cards and see that, indeed, the flashed HD6950 exactly matches the 6970 in performance even down to the temperature it runs while under load.

Now it seems that nvidia has upped their game and are scaling very well. Indeed, if I was to purchase new cards now I would definitely go with nvidia. I think that even just counting the stress removed from your cpu by having the physics engine in geforce cards makes them worth the purchase. One thing that bothers me though is that I have been hearing rumors that nvidia is pulling little dirty tricks to prevent some 120Hz monitors (such as the Samsung monitor I have now) from working with their 3D. I hope it's not true because something like that could sway a customer's opinion. I know I'm not going to replace my 120Hz monitor just so I can purchase an nvidia card. I'll have to look into it more closely next time I upgrade.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Really sorry to see that. I suppose it's hard to work on such thin plexy. Did they tell you it was at your own risk? Maybe someone who has replaced their side panel or is using the mesh could sell or give you their plexy panel for a retry? This would be the right place to ask.

I don't have a Maximus V Extreme but I have the Formula version with the H100i which, if you're looking to see if something fits, are the same board in terms of dimensions I believe. I'd be happy to try and answer any questions you may have.

Not heard of that but my BenQ 2420T has the LightBoost Nvidia sticker on it so I can't see them removing that! I haven't got a pair of glasses to try 3d yet, will have to pick up a set someday.

SLI scaling is great with GTX 670. I'm chuffed with mine. Of course I always want more power, I want 120fps ALL the time but I dont think i'll get performance like that would having quad TITANS haha

I'm still not totally satisfied with my side panel fan, the droaning noise above 1400RPM is really annoying. I STILL need to come up with a master plan! Wish I had a 140mm cut out, would be better options available then

In all fairness, AMD does that too...

I also have a BenQ XL 2420T, not bad for a type TN panel but still a far cry from a IPS but when you do want to play a 3D game the light boost really helps as it increases the brightness when 3D is activated.. saying that I have my monitor cranked right down.. good god these BenQ XL 2420T are so bright you need to put your 3D glasses on .. biggrin.gif only joking.

I'm only running a single GTX690 and most of the time I do get 120fps in optimised games like COD Black Ops ,2 but when bench marking I normally sit aroung the 90fps .. so I would need another GTX 690 to get to where I would like to.. but until they release a 120hz 27" IPS monitor .. and not one of those 1080p peices of $H!Z with poor dpi, but a 2560x1600 I will stick with my 24"... but really the stats say only 1 out of 10 people can see 3D, and when playing 3D in FPS it looks great but its a pain to pin point a pixle due to 3D .. these days the 3D never gets used .. but I still love the 120hz .. could not go back

I have both a XL2420t and a Korean 27" IPS. I could not play FPS style games on the Korean monitor now that I have used 120hz, the 120hz is definitely a big change. But if I am playing something like Guild Wars2 or Hitman or some other single player game, I tend to like the colors and screen size of the Korean IPS. So it seems I am swapping back and forth between monitors....
