You are completly right! I didnt even notice. As long as the frequency is right when its running I dont mind a wrong sticker, lets just hope it really is on 3GHz when i turn it on. Gonna take a few more pics of the box, cause that just ... messed up.

Very nice job but one question... why not just use the DVI plug on the cards themselves instead of dealing with the adapter?

The DVIs are gonna be used, but you only have 4 DVIs on the 4 cards, and 4 VGAs on them. As i need to connect 12 minutors i need to use the DP ports too. But DP monitors are still too expensive and rare, so i needed to make the DP into something i can connect to cheap monitors.

Both the DVIs on the cards and the DPs converted to DVIs will be used...

12 monitors / 4 cards = 3 monitors connected to a single card.

I hope for you those are ACTIVE single link dvi to DP adapters?
Since they look more like passive ones :S (I had both and the active one has a bit bigger "box" at the DVI port then the passive one).

Yes, but that would make it a whole lot more difficult to change a hard drive if one dies. Like this i just need to pop the side panel, unhook cables and replace. If i mounted them the other way i would have to deal with the other side panel which hides all the cables etc, and is a pain, not to mention i would have to take down the main side panel anyway. This is just a whole lot easier for maintance later on.

I actually have no clue, we'll see if they work or not when I solve the bios problem and get this running!

Would you care to explain the difference between passive and active adapters?

With Active adapters you can have more then 2 monitors "online" at the same time, while you can't with passive (passive = limited to a maximum of 2 monitors).

Umm, that shouldnt matter here at all, because the card is going to be outputting to DP, and for the card's purpous, it has a DVI, VGA and a DP monitor connected to it. All that the adapter cable does is change the DP to DVI, simply because i dont have DP monitors.
