Yah that's a great idea. When can we expect this video?!

I have a Maximus IV Extreme and a 2600k...Also have 3 GTX 580 cards with waterblocks (now single slot vs. the original double slot cooler) I was wondering if I can run the 3 GTX 580's + a GTS 450 for Physx? I know there are 4 full PCIe slots...but it is unclear whether they can all be used...I will also be running a RevoDrive X2 in the 4X slot and Xonar sound card in the 1x slot.

Any info on this would be great!

Thanks,

to be honest you would pry need something more bulkier than just a 450. Try like a 470, 560, 570 or something.

just let physX run on the GPUs.

Not point in wasting money/electricity on a card that wont do much more than the 580s already can.

With 3 580s, you are really looking at something like a 570 or 480 to compete with them for PhysX

Reflex,

Cool...Thanks...The build can now move forward...

Here is a picture of the build so far...Motherboard installed, waterblocks installed....more to come when I have time this weekend..

I am custom mounting two swiftech 480 Rads to the top of a HAF X 942 case...Love this case...

-M

Here's mine with Tri-Fire set-up, 5970+5870. Rock-stable 24/7 at 5.1 (51x100) with Intel PLL overvoltage OFF and HT ON. Temps are under 60 celsius on all cores.

I'm having problem with the 5870 recognized and always staying in idle state, no matter what I do. Working with Asus right now. Thinking it's a BIOS problem.

Managerman. Did you try your set-up to see if every 580 is REALLY working (not staying in idle state) when using something like Furmark Multi-GPU? It would help me.

My 5870 is recognized by the BIOS, recognized by Win7, recognized by Catalyst 11.1 (and 10.12, 10.11 also...), Catalyst says Crossfire Enable, but the 5870 always stays idle at 137/300 with VDDC current at 0.0A. I can game for hours, no problem, but the 5870 never goes out of idle mode.

The Tri-Fire set-up works fine on my X58 board. Just checked it this morning.

3 separated water loops, 3 pumps, 3 res and 4 triple 120 rads in a Mountain Mods Extended Ascension.

Already have a 6970 + Ek waterblock, just waiting for the 6990 to come out to replace my 5970+5870.
